Default Helmet Help

I need a new helmet this year, and I was wondering if anyone had feedback about which one was the best. Preferably one that i could wear a hat under. thanks!

I have the Smith Holt helmet and it does the trick really well. It has the bluetooth audio with it. I'm not sure if you could wear a hat with it but I like it.

Bern helmets are awesome. I bought the watts this season and I already like it better than my smith maze. I am able a fit a thin hat under it with no problem, but remember that wearing a hat under a helmet can reduce the effectiveness of the helmet, especially if the hat is really bulky.

+1 for Bern helmets. Super comfy and low-profile. If you can spend a little extra and don't like wearing earbuds for music, grab the one with the audio liner.

I have Smith Venue for the kids and me. Very warm no need for a hat. Most helmets are designed to NOT be worn with a hat. That is a whole other discussion. You can wear ear buds without any discomfort but a blue tooth would be nice. I prefer to not ride to music but that is just me.

REI has them on sale, normally $100 sale $60
