Steezy helmets to suit VZ Fishbowls
 
Want to upgrade my Costco purchased Bolle helmet with something stylish. The matte paint on it has turned 'sticky' after 3 years and I might as well go with something nice if i upgrade. First choice was a Sandbox Classic, but it seems that they dont work well with VZ Fishbowls. Bought a Red Avid on sale through Dogfunk, but that helmet is no joke 2" thick. It sticks out past the Fishbowls and looks pretty ridiculous.

So I am looking for other recommendations around the $100 mark. Audio pockets would be preferred. I wear hats normally so a brim might be nice! Has to work with Fishbowls though, i quite like them goggles

Any suggestions?

I like this bad boy:

Anon Optics

It's designed to fit with Anon M2 goggles, so not fishbowls but big goggles all the same.

Thanks for the suggestion... that does look pretty cool actually, hopefully i can find one on sale as the RRP is a bit more than my intended budget.

Will have a looksee if there are any stockists in Tokyo that i can try it with my goggles

Random googling found the Giro Bad Lieutenant helmet,... that looks pretty cool. Pity its from circa 2006.

Smith Maze, lightweight, low profile and 99 bucks.

I have this helmet, Red Mutiny. Paid about $90 but I know you can find them cheaper. Has audio pockets for the awesome add on speakers you can get. Has a brim and they come in a ton of colors. It works perfectly fine with my EG2's which I believe are just a hair taller than Fishbowls. I actually just ordered a pair of Fishbowls so I'm in your same situation. Here's some pics (not mine)

I don't think steezy and helmet can be used in the same sentence, but my Fishbowls work well with my Bern Watts. You should also look into the similarly designed Pro-Tec, Red, Sandbox lids.

+1. I also wear Bern Watts with Fishbowls. Only helmet that doesn't make me look like an alien.

I love sandbox classic helmets

Poop, have you tried the SB Classic with Fishbowls? Does it fit?

After boarding again on the weekend, i realised that i probably have the opposite problem with the current helmet - It was probably designed with an intentionally large gaper gap... The fishbowls fill that out, but then end up sliding UP my face to the point where my downwards vision is impeded haha

And thanks for the other suggestions - will look at the Protec Riot (looks somewhat sandbox-ish), bern watts and Red mutiny helmets (though i hear RED is being discontinued - might make it hard to find).

If anyone has any pics with Fishbowls it would help too - Seems to be hard to find pics of goggles with specific helmets (Google not helping much)
