Looking for new Helmet..low profile with audio

I really don't like my current helmet, its hudge and not really compatiable with audio.

I like to find something low profile, with good audio..anyone have recommendations?

I am currently looking at these

Red Prime

Smith Hustle

K2 rival

Protec Vigilante

Anybody have any experience with these? Any other ideas? Protec is the one I like the best out of these.

Helmets is the same as boots: Just try them. I bought a Red Trace II, just because it fits the best to me. The most expensive helmet fit the worst to me, so it's not about price. The higher the price, the lighter the helmet, but I don't know what that 0,2 kilograms (0,4 pounds I think) really matter on your head which weights 20 times that difference!

I just bought my first helmet, Smith hustle. I paid $50 following a link in another thread on here. Nice helmet that is audio compatible.

My son has a protec helmet with audio and it has served him well for 2 years. I got my niece a red helmet. She got a concussion while wearing it and doesn't remember anything but waking in the hospital. From the stories the instructor and other campers tell she is lucky to have lived. Took a 30' jump then Wiped out going about 50mph after catching an edge. She hit some hard surface along the edge of the trail at hood in summer. Her helmet is lighter than the protec. My Smith is about the same weight but mines an XL and hers a Med.

Best "audio" helmet in my opinion is a Bern with BrockFoam and audio.


Though You could just wait till Siege releases their Skullcandy Icon killers and get a Sandbox Brainbucket and run the headphones UNDER. Boom.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
