Also, a helmet is better than no helmet. Where helmet's get expensive are the added bells and whistles (added insulation for warmth, not necessarily protection; audio features; venting; etc.) Regardless, they ALL have to have safety specific requirements in order to hit production and end up being bought and "put on your head" ready. Not get sucked into thinking a more expensive helmet means more protection. Check with the shop gear heads and get what fits you and feels comfortable but also meets your safety demands. Safety is the only reason we wear them anyways. If that's not a concern of anybody, than wear a beanie...ya know?!
