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.
Doesnt look anything like a POC to me. The back is all wrong.
