Helmets!

So guys, what are your favourite helmets?
I am in need of a helmet because I don't want to rent every single time.
So guys, I need your help in finding a helmet.
The only request I have is that its not black
i prefer bright colours like teal, or neon green or sky blue :P
Thanks!

All I can say is you need to try them on first hand. For what its worth, I picked up a Giro Revolver yesterday and I like it so far. It comes with 3 different sets of foam so you can really dial in the fit. It has that slight lip on the brim, so no gap with my goggles at least. I know it comes in a bunch of colors, and only $70.

Yea basso4735 is right about needing to try them on.
I use the Giro Revolver. I like it, and what basso4735 also said. There's no gap with the goggles, with mine anyways.

If you like bright colours I would reccomend looking at a sandbox helmet. They have really nice foam options and come in bright sky blue.

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

I got a Smith Vantage and Love it, very light and has nice features.

It's not about how many runs you get, it's the quality of the turns you made.

I prefer the helmet that fits nice and snug. Has some vents. And no gaper goggle gap. Preferrably with a little bit of a brim. Must have a goggle strap holder. Functionality first like all my gea., Then I worry about the color or style. I suggest going into the store w/ your goggles and trying on as many as you can.
