Aliexpress sell what look (based on the pics) like convincing copies of the POC helmets.
I've personally sold fake items that I originally bought from Aliexpress (not on here, locally). I'm very Clear about where the item is from and that is not an original piece. But I also have fake items in my parts bin that I dont consider safe, and thus wouldnt sell no matter how up front the ad was. I'd feel the same about a fake helmet.
This struck me as a little off http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/POC-RD-Raceday-Helmet-New-Bright-Orange-Hi-Vis-New-without-Box-/291776657090?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&nma=true&si=2t27CCUhhnquOnhFo91eITgClsc%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc I have no evidence it's an aliexpress helmet, but it does seem worrying people are willing to blur the lines with fake helmets as has happened with this Giro.
