Does anyone know anything about TUPA helmets? I found some evidence they are UIAA certified or something. Clearly, a made in asia product but I'd wager most helmets are....

Just buy a decent and clearly certified helmet. Your head is worth it. A helmet is an item where saving money should not be a priority.

It looks very similar to an Asia-market helmet a friend has. Heavy and poorly fitting. But for $24, maybe you want to take a chance. At worst you have a loaner helmet for friends.
