Helmets

Hi!

Kinda new to the whole park riding, but got myself an old helmet.
The problem is just that it's too big.. Or my head is really really small.. Yeah, junior helmets fits like a glove..

Anyone know some cool helmets in small sizes? Tried a Bern woman small helmet and that one fits aswell..

Need to look steezy in the park at least next season!

A improper fitting helmet wont do you any good.

Try the RED Hi-Fi? I dont know how small your head is but their womans version is pretty tiny. I looked at the sticker and was like uhh..this is the same size as this other one how come i wear this one like a tophat and this one actually fits my head...finally figured out one was a womans only version.

I use a boeri tempest with my black goggles and a bandana. Looks pretty good for a helmet, warm but not too hot, low profile, good venting, and keeps your dome safe.

Definately look at the venting! I bought at RED Mutiny II after trying on dozens of others and love the fit and feel of it, as well as the brimmed look, but it was just way too hot even on 20* days because it just didn't breathe. I ended up drilling some small holes in the shell, where there were openings in the foam (the foam does the work in a crash, not the plastic) to let some of the heat flow out and it's 100X better.

You can always put on a thin hat underneath the helmet (I have a really thin beanie from bonfire that would be perfect for that) but if it's too hot you're kinda screwed.

I'd second that, always easier to make it warmer than colder. When it's really cold/blowing snow, I use an Under Armor neoprene hood. It's thin enough to not mess up your helmet fit, but man that thing keeps your face warm.
