I fell hard my first time riding. In fact I did it twice. I swore never to ride without a helmet again regardless of how good I may get. I realize that I can not only catch an edge at any point just due to bad conditions or something in the snow I didn't see but also because of someone sitting in the trail where they shouldnt be. Or a mistake collison from someone out of control. I can get bone damage fixed. Brain damage I can't.
Okay enough of the soap box.....


I have two helmets.
-Giro (L) which I no longer wear. Joint is huge and makes me look like I should ride the short yellow bus to school. Great protection though.

-Smith Allure (M) Yes its a females helmet. Didn't know that when i bought it. Oh well....so long as its not girlie colors I dont care. I like it lol
Fits great and has a furry lining inside. Low profile, comfortable and very light.

Might buy one of the higher end Smith helmets next season though
