I thought mine was OK. I'll check it tomorrow to make sure.

No rattles or obvious signs of "Shonkiness". Much cheaper than the Masuri as well (PDC Black Friday 2015 pricing)

Still, would be nice for me to confirm in my own mind that it's a good lid. Let you know tomorrow.

Cheers @Ayrtek Cricket , always interesting to know! <20knG transmitted from that impact is bloody impressive, fair play.

@edge 20kN is not impressive at all ;) A 100kg person jumping on your head is ~5kN force. I think the units should be "g", not "kN" since accelerometers were mentioned and 300g is a traditional benchmark thought to introduce permanent brain injury I believe (thinking back to some bicycle helmet tests I saw). Nevertheless, testing way below the Standard is indeed impressive :)

Yes sorry my bad...trying to juggle a 1 year old, read a PDF and type led to an error it's as per below:-

"the peak acceleration shall not exceed 250 gn.
NOTE The symbol gn signifies a deceleration of 9.81m/s2"

I thought it was interesting! I really did!

Sorry you didn't get a good lid though. Assume you can return?

Oops... I was confused, worked on the assumption you meant G not kN and then typed kN myself... d'oh night shift brain. @DorsetDan you're not wrong, 20kN would be approx the total impact force of the ball at test speeds.

This is a friggin awesome thread , good posts by all . Glad i have 2 masuris and my new fave ....adidas adizero /ayrtek.  I will definitely buy another titanium/carbon ayrtek as soon as they are released.  Ive made some cricket purchases i regret but  I'm glad a Shrey helmet isn't one of them - particularly after today's innings . I hooked a bouncer for four , next ball was same delivery but ball stuck in the pitch a bit and the ball glanced off the back of the bat flush onto my helmet . Times like these you want to trust your safety gear is up to scratch .

Update: Nope, absoloutly rock solid. No cracks, cloth fits nicely everywhere including under the peak... no complaints.

I notice that most (if not all) of the broken ones are Ti... mines steel, coincidence?

Ah.

Thought it might have been a problem fixing Ti grill's to the shell that caused the cracking. Seems not. Guess I just got lucky?

Prob more relevant to check the batch number and production date on them as it should be listed on the sticker/label inside of the helmet as part of the BSI standard requirements.
