Default help with helmets...

are helmets ridiculously awkward, like with skateboards? they're unnaturally thick and make you feel really wierd. Do snowboard helmets fit more snuggly? Or are they bulky and annoying?

(generally: low profile, comfortable, light. really, is there something like that out there, that isn't crazy expensive? i've found things at like 35 dollars, but i don't know if they fit my preferences)

the bern brentwood is a pretty low pro helmet. and it can be used for both skate and snow.


dont know what you classify as exuberant, but the brent is only $60 which for a snow helmet ain't bad.

I second Nivek. Bern makes some really nice, low profile helmets that meet the certifications necessary.

I think all helmets are like a new pair of underwear... at first it's constrictive, but after a while it becomes a part of you.

Also, getting a helmet that fits properly is vital. You should go to a core shop and try on a bunch of different brands because each one has it's own fit. The rep will help you find a helmet that fits you right.

Don't forget to ask if the helmet is compatible with the goggles you use because they have to fit the helmet.
