Default Helmets with liner that extends past helmet.

I still have yet to find my first helmet and I realized I want something like Bern where the liner sticks out past the helmet so I don't end up with any air gaps, which has been my biggest thing keeping me from picking one up.

My question is what other helmets have that same sort of liner idea, I can't seem to find any on my own. Hopefully this pic can show you what I mean, you can see the liner going past the ear straps and like a 1/2 inch runs along the forehead area..

I thought about a bern also, but ended up ordering a smith last week. If you wear smith goggles with smith helmets you won't have trouble with air gaps. My problem is I have two sets of giro manifest goggles. I plan on wearing a thin helmet compatible beanie if there is a gap until I can get some new smith goggles.

I did have a Smith Variant for a day but there were air gaps on my temples with both my Smith Prophecys and EG2's. And I felt like my ears were barely covered and would be another wind spot. I got a large head and face so it's tough finding that perfect fit.

I have the transport on the way and have also been thinking about the phrophecy if my giros dont work. Transport has the boa type system and seemed like it would be fine with a thin beanie underneath when I tried it on, which should take care of any leaks. I hated the leak above my goggles on my last helmet and it was too tight for beanie under.

My Red Mutiny has an adjustable piece across the forehead that you can move up or down to fill any gaps between the goggle and helmet. Works great, I've never once had any wind hit my face in that area. It's held in with 3 or 4 pieces of Velcro so you can move it where you want.
