Mattfondren I highly suggest a Giro Revolver. I wear a 7 1/2 new era hat and surprisingly can fit in a small in this helmet. I have Von zipper Fishbowls which helps making the helmet look small. i wear it with a skull cap so its low profile and the goggles under the helmet using the interior goggle channel. Try this set up at your shop and you won't be disappointed. if your looking for a low profile look this helmet is best. it almost looks weird since its so small haha

Whoracle I have a Bern Macon that i picked up at Big 5 sports for $40. It keeps my head warm without a beanie, but most importantly protects my melon!

looking4snow I ride TSG Fly - one of the lightest winter helmets on the market (370g/13oz). Very comfortable, almost like a beanie. Actually already second, because first one was creviced (hope this is right word, cuz I don't speak eng very well ) after a bad landing of jump and catching heel edge on ice... Thanks helmet, I could enjoy snowboarding later that day. I was lucky, because it happened second day after I bought it, and guys in the shop gave me a new helmet for free. Now the exterior is little bit damaged after some crashes on rails, but it's still ok.
Dunno if it meets the best standards, but it's certified CE EN 1077b, ASTM 2040. Explained here: CEN 1077 - Fiswiki

ThunderChunky I just checked every single Giro helmet and every one is certified. Something that not many other companies can say. Also like I said. They cover more of your head than most helmets. Which is pretty obvious why it would be safer. And another is that the hard padding in it is thicker than most other helmets. When you get down into the 60 dollar range though they are gonna be a little less safe than the top line from another company. The most important though is to make sure it fits.

Here's the website if you wanna have a look.

Giro? Official Site

Also Giro is Class A not class B.

handscreate The safest most protective helmet is the one that fits the user properly and is ASTM, CE and/or SNELL certified. Any additional certifications are nice, but do NOT necessarily make that model any safer than others that are certified for that sport. There is no brand or model that is the "safest" helmet, because if there were we'd all go out and buy only that helmet - and they boast the shit out of the fact that were indeed the "safest".

Ok. Its fine to slut all over a brand, I love a few myself, but you are sharing your opinion here, there are no facts presented about one helmet being safer than another, not in these quotes, or by anyone else in this thread.

Just to be clear.

Kapn.K 2 Smith Holts. Priced right. Works great with Electric EG2's also. When I really eat it, I still know where I'm at, the date, time, etc. Also have a Pro Tech that my kid used for one trip. It looked cool but fit weird and the straps "fuzz up" easily so it was replaced with another Holt.

Sassicaia someone posted a link to a really expensive helmet (like $500 or so), that seem to only be available in europe, or was very hard to find. Can you repost that link?
