You need to try on a lot of different helmets. I had a problem finding ones that fit. I finally got the Smith Variant this year. Very light. Doesn't bother me one bit. You really have to ride with one on. Just standing around the store with one on is going to make you consciously notice it. When you're riding, you forget it's there until it saves your head.

My skate helmet is on its last legs, (its so old that the foam is falling out) so I am in the market for a new helmet.

I just don't wanna spend $100+ on one. I do like the look of the smith variant that Leo put up, but its $160! That is more than either of my boards, or my two shells cost me

Smith Variant Helmet - Adult 2010


This one has a brim if you like that style.
Smith Variant Brim Helmet - Adult 2010



I have a Variant Brim and love it. It is pricey but the fit is really nice, vents well, and works like a champ with Smith goggles. Before the VB, I had a Smith Holt. Cheaper, vented decent, but was heavier and the fit wasn't as snug. Still a good lid though. I agree with everybody else - try them on and see what is comfortable.

You don't need the super exspensive ones and be sure to search very hard to find deals. I've got a Smith Hustle. Retail is $120 but I got it for $60.

I guess I'm weird that I like wearing my helmet instead of a hat. I know it will stay on my head, I know my goggles are staying with me, and I have on the fly adjustment of the vents. You need something on your head so might as well make it as functional as possible.
