Size: 53 - 56cmColour: Metallic Purple Verified Purchase
I was slightly concerned before buying this that most people were buying this for children.
However as an adult woman, I measured my head and found that the S/M should be the right size.

I wanted a nice looking helmet for cycling around town on a daily basis and had searched for a while.
I hate the look of most of the sporty cycling helmets on offer (I'm just going to work, not cycling the Tour de France!), and simpler looking helmets from companies like Bern tend to be quite expensive.
I decided on the "Metallic Purple" as a subtle but nice looking colour.

As other reviewers have pointed out the purple colour is darker in person, more of a purple/black colour with a subtle shimmer/sheen. I think it looks really good.
The helmet isn't as slim/lightweight as other more pricey ones however I don't feel like it looks massive on my head as other helmets do.
It feels very sturdy and I like how the round shape of it protects my whole head and not just the top.
I also like that it comes with two sizes of pads that can be switched out to change the fit.

I've been using it every day for a couple of weeks now and it's been great.
Occasionally my head can get a bit warm/sweaty when cycling, the ventilation is OK but not fantastic.

I might consider getting a lighter coloured one for summer to reflect the sun and keep my head cooler.

Size: 53 - 56cmColour: Black/Rasta Verified Purchase
I have used this most days on my bike - it feels sturdy and has the CE mark. It comes with a few different cushions that attach to the inside via velcro, so you can adjust it to suit different hairsyles/head shapes.

Feels sturdy, perfect for my kid when he's skating. Size S fits my 6 year old just fine

Size: 56-60cmColour: Union Jack Verified Purchase
Yup. I bought this helmet due to the cool Union Jack design. It fits my extremely large Afro well and feels snug and secure.

Quality SFR helmet. No less than I'd expect. Extra padding included to size down to XS.

Size: S-M (53-56cm)Colour: Purple Verified Purchase
Does not fit 6year old with measured head circumference of 53cm. Even with the ridiculous pads on, the helmet falls. This should not be advertised for children.

Size: 53 - 56cmColour: Matt Fluo Orange Verified Purchase
Came very quuckly - part of a present for my grandson's birthday. He was thrilled with it - orange is his favourite colour! - and it fitted perfectly.

Size: 56-60cmColour: Metallic Purple Verified Purchase
No hint of purple on the hat in any light, and a much bigger fit than expected. The quality is excellent but the measurement and colour is defiantly off
