Today i went to McLoad road and i must say, I am very disappointed in Pakistani Market. So much china maal and mostly ghatiya quality, being charged as GOLD's Price.
After searching for more than 2 hours in every bit of McLoad road, i was unable to find a good quality and preferably a BRANDED helmet. There were a couple of company names i found, Penguin, Uneed, and another i cant remember for now ... i have seen the Original Taiwan made helmets which were difficult to find, but not worthy to spend money on.
Anyways, i wrote a long post to describe my feelings (of anger) and focking wapda ki waja se sub baraad ho gya ... so I'll keep it short this time.
Umer! Here I am asking you, please help me find a quality helmet as you were claiming earlier it was easy to find [/sarcasm]
I can see that CK helmet is in very good shape but as i haven't see whats INSIDE, i can't exactly tell because ہو چمکتی ہوی چیز سونا نہیں ہوتی
Anyways ... I can spare upto 5k if i have to but in return, I want something which i can rely on.
The current Helmet i have is so loosely fits on my head that most of times it distracts me from driving and i keep on correcting it. For this problem i cant even take my bike upto higher speeds not even on an open road, and not on a khaddon wali jaga.
I will prefer a BRANDED helmet, like STUDDS or any other if i can find.
As of today, I DID find a ABS helmet, and the price tag was shockingly high i.e. 5.5k. The quality was good ... well, good enough, but it could tell by the looks of it that 5.5k for this is not reasonable. The shopkeeper was claiming it to be Original Taiwan made and it was Original ABS helmet.
I wasn't convinced so i left it.
The reason behind it was, IF it was a "Quality" helmet, there are SUPPOSED to be some air vents on it to. As the fittings were VERY tight, it badly needed Air Vents to keep the inside cool.
Anyways , I request Lahori people to please do me a small favor and help me in whatever way they can.
Right now, i have 3k in my pocket .. and by the looks of it ... wherever i go, i will only find china, which ... i just do not want to buy.
