Exclamation Wearing a helmet @ Which one

Alright. I have been searching the forum and couldn't find a thread with this particular subject.
The last couple of days I've been watching some vids (no surprise) but first I saw Kevin Pearce' "The Crash Reel" video, which btw if you haven't watched it - Do it! And now I just finished a video called "Helmets Are Cool". I found it on FB a friend of mine posted it and this just like The Crash Reel made me think maybe I should wear that helmet then.

I need some feedbacks from you guys who's wearing one, which one would you recommend? I know it depends on your head shape and all but let me hear your thoughts about this. Maybe post some pictures too because I would really like to see how they look. (Yes I'am maybe one of those guys )

One that fits your head and your goggles if you wear bigger goggles (eg2's). I wear a Ride Duster helmet and really like.

You're welcome man! It really made me think of how come I ain't riding with a helmet. Safety first they say, right?

I already wear one after smacking my head good a couple times when I first started. I realize that's a personal choice and not one I'm about to get into an internet debate over, but I'm glad I wear mine and don't give a shit about what I look like in it.

Regardless of whether it changes one's mind on the topic, that was still a good video.

Yeah, like boots you gotta find the one that fits. That said, here are a few features I look for in helmets:

- adjustable sizing (through a ratchet or similar at the back of the head)

- close-able vents (helps when you ride in everything from -30 to +10 degrees)

- goggle fitment (the helmet needs to mate with the goggles properly, and produce little gogmet offspring)

I like removable ear muffs too. Nice feature to have in the spring. Much better removing those than having vents.

Definitely get the one that fits.

I agree with killclimbz.

However, if you are like me and don't have anywhere to try on helmets, I would recommend the Smith Maze. It is my favorite helmet of about 4 different ones I've owned. Extremely lightweight, works with Anon and Oakley googles that I have.
