The seem to all be about the same in terms of bulk. You can't absorb impact without a little bulk.

I use a Ride Duster helmet and it's not that bulky. It's a small and my old helmet (popular brand that I can't remember at the moment) was a medium. Try on before you buy and bring your goggles if they have big frames.

Think less about bulk and more about weight... Look at something from the sweet protection range and if you can afford it, then certainly get a carbon fibre helmet, the difference in weight is massive, i forget i am wearing a helmet with my Sweet Grimnir...
