This is exactly like my preference. I like putting the thick foam around the edges and the thinnest foam at the top, so my helmet hugs my head.

I can ride my bike with no handlebars, no handlebars, no handlebars...

Here's mine: POC Receptor Bug...it comes with a detachable bankers brim, which I leave on. It fits like a glove and is extremely light and comfortable.

Salomon Ranger Custom Air with blue-tooth skullcandy. This thing is the best thing that happened to my dome piece in a long time. I get all my music and phone calls via blue-tooth with no wires and no fumbling with zippers and gloves, and no need for a hat. I can take phone calls mid run and back to music with no stops. The best thing is that it pumps up like an old reebok sneaker to grip your head. So I liked it so much I had my buddy airbrush this thing to match my gear. But I am getting new gear so I think a new paint job is the ticket. Let me know what you think.

Where did you pick up the bluetooth skullcandys? I've got the patrol custom air and it is awesome! Fits perfect since it pumps up, is very light weight, and all day comfortable. It also has a detachable brim (that i leave on) and no gap with my EG2s.

I saw the ranger custom air online last FEB and wanted it but couldn't find it anywhere. Checked every store in the USA and they were all sold out and back ordered. Found it new on E-bay some where in the UK and bought it for like $250 to $300 can't remember. The sound quality is great, the built in mic is great and the wireless blue-tooth sold me. Using my iphone voice control i can call my lost riding partner with a push of a button on the helmet and say the name. Beats the shit out of a 2way radio.

I really like the Bern lids - there are some nice lids from Pro-tec, and Smith too.
It's about time that I replaced my helmet - had it since 2004 I think!

I use the Smith Variant... love it!



My wife just got the Smith Vantage this season. It is her first helmet and she has been riding for 7 years. Normally, I notice that people go through an adjustment phase when first wearing a helmet. She didn't. Put it on, and rode without ever mentioning the helmet. I asked her after her about how it was after the first run and she said she had forgotten that she was wearing one. I'm jealous of that helmet. It is literally air light. Tons of control over ventilation too.
