Sudden_Death That's cool, go with whatever works for you. I'd love to find something less bulky too if I had the coin right now.

phony_stark That's totally valid and I am by no means doing insane shit in the park, but in my experience doing that and skating, a hard hat has been just fine and, in a side by side comparison of having to use my certified helmet has resulted in less bell ringing.

Again, what you're saying makes sense, but the hardhat has been what has worked for me better.

Sudden_Death It isn't the forward speed of a fall that is really important but the downward force. Falling from a jump or rail will likely result in more than someone hauling ass flat based. Plus there is the issue of smacking your head on the feature. If I were riding park I'd be wanting more protection not less.

Triple8Sol As far as low profile lids go, I tried on the newish Protec ones and they seemed just as low-pro as my Bern Watts but even lighter.

tiredpanda They only have multi impact for other brands not the bern tho. I went and tried on the been eps and wasn't as comfy as the red mutiny. Thanks everyone

phony_stark I have the sinkfit helmet for my bike and the brock foam for skating/snowboarding....duuuuude the Brock foam is very comfy. It's not WILD squishy, but it's markedly more comfy than any other helmet that I've owned.

matty19 Isn't the multi-impact foam te Brock foam?

In my experience, the hard hats and the certified helmets have the same fit. Again, on my head, they run about a size small.

tiredpanda I can't find Brock foam berns anywhere in Canada ugh . Only single IMPACt and multi impact foam. Is the Brock foam squishy? If so its probably insanely comfortable. Oh does the normal been helms fit the same size as Brock foam version

phony_stark This is why I like hardhats the best. They're soft, so they prevent low speed impacts and you're less likely to get a concussion.

I don't haul ass like supra though. I tree the mountian more like a skatepark with the occasional "half ass" hauling.

tiredpanda There has been a ton of research I have put into both snowboard helmets and bicycle helmets. I have concluded for myself that they don't do much for speeds greater then about 20mph. Thanks for the stories I'm always glad to hear when people male it out of bad crashes. But the fact is in both stories it is just a guess that the helmet saved you and your dad.

Not really a park rat I just want something to eat up some of the energy from blunt trauma. When snowboarding and I feel the need I carry a mouth guard which I feel is more effective at preventing concussions .
