Anyone have any suggestions for a 'cute' helmet? Or something that is low profile/doesnt stand out too much?
From what I've seen, Bern makes the lowest-profile helmets in a variety of colors and styles. The lining is like a beanie and has soft fur around it (like wearing my Chihuahua on my head
). I think your wife would like that.
Just make sure it has EPS or is certified; a couple seasons ago Bern's lower-end helmet wasn't.
Lib Tech also has an insanely low-profile helmet that is certified. Right now I have a Giro Revolver. I put earphones in the audio pads though, because the Skull Candy one they make for it is crap.
I bet she would want to wear the helmet If you got her an audio-compatible one! Outdoor Technology is releasing a wireless helmet audio system this year in September- man I can't wait to get one of those!
