Default Bern Macon or Red hi-fi helmet?

you guys familiar with both of these, please let me know your opinions.

Which one is lighter and less bulkier? I have a small head =)...err... the upper one.

The RED is lighter and less bulkier (by a lot).

Bern also fits about a cm smaller than their size chart suggests.

I say Macon. Its what I have. Two helmets in one. Light. Not bulky. Interchangable liner thingys. And my RED Trace didn't do sh!t to help with my concussion. I should not have had one wearing a helmet with the fall I took. I skate and play hockey (since I was 4), I know when I hit hard and this was not hard enough for a concussion while wearing a helmet. I was upset. Well I was upset when I came to my senses about 3 hours later. Man I was trippin.

Ha, if there's 1 thing Bern helmets aren't, it's light.

Low profile is another Bern myth.
