Does anybody know of any helmets that have built in speakers for mp3 or whatever?? Killer I know you gave the name of one company....I just cant find that thread
To name a couple:
Pro-tec... Mercenary Audio
R.E.D... HI-FI
Giro... Nine.9 Audio II, Encore Audio I, Bad Lieutenant Audio
Bern Baker... Audio

Salomon and Giro sell replacement audio ear pads and I'm sure the others do too.

rubbertoe I like buying my stuff on the net mainly cause I'm a tight wad. But the best advice is to try them on 1st. My head is an oval shape and the giro fit my head shape. Some of the others I tried were uncomfortable for me and would have fit someone with a round head. I believe others are made for pinheads ie Red Skycap. Sorry I couldn't resist.

Haha, exactly why I'm getting rid of mine and getting something different. It's a beast, that's for sure

rubbertoe I have a giro and I like it a lot. It has removable plugs in the vent holes for when fat old men get hot and tired, it's comfortable, and warm on those 50mph windy lift rides that happen in the west.

killclimbz The thing I look for in any helmet is removable ear flaps. I would rather have that feature than multiple ventilation holes.

anthonybsd I use Giro Fuse (with audio inserts). Used Pro Tec before. A lot of holes helps quite a bit.

PaoloSmythe Red skycap (yes i know, the evul Burton) but it is durable, fits well, importantly it is as comfy as you need it (ie breath able and no cranial hot spots), plus it is nicely warm and so there's no need for a beanie etc underneath, which would just compromise the qaulity of fit.

plus looking at my avatar, it makes me look like a space monkey! yay!
