Looking for a new Helmet and came across a FORMA titanium online and was wondering if anybody has bought one.

You'd have to be a wally to even consider buying one - in all seriousness the quality looks, as I suspect it will be, shocking.

Don't skimp on a helmet, you really do get what you pay for. I'd swear by @Ayrtek Cricket any day for protection vs value.

I have a mate who bought one and raved about the price and having a 'Tendulkar helmet'. He stopped wearing it after a month or two, he said the adjustable kept digging into the back of his head and it made a rattling noise when he moved/ran .

Try something on before you buy it. Helmets are a very personal thing. Only the old gn's fit my big head!

If you're looking at a titanium lid, you should stick to the big brands that have a solid reputation for BS approved helmets like Masuri, Shrey, Ayrtek, Grays, Kooka etc.

I had 1, was very light, built quality look good, never had an issue (was never hit tbh). My main issue with the helmet was it was too big for my average head. Normal size fits I believe M-L or Xl but it is too big & loose while batting. Moved over to Shrey masterclass recently & much happier with the fit
