Helmets worn by the pros

Just curious if anyone knows what helmets most of the pros are wearing during the x-games or any other major competition. They all seem to wear the same helmet with the same gigantic redbull or rockstar sticker on the side.

Don't be a poser, be an individual! Pick your own helmet!

Honestly though I have no idea, it's probably something with extra protection, god knows they need it.

They all wear different helmets. Smith, protec, bern, you name it. The redbull and monster logos are just stickers they get paid to wear.

I guess that if I were a pro rider, I'll be prouder of getting paid for holding a sticker over my helemet than of being able to realize plenty of difficult tricks.

Seriously... getting paid for having stickers on your head, your board
it's just so sick

If you see a mistake in my English, please let me know in your reply, or give me notice by MP. It'd be nice!

Im nowhere near pro, but the Bern Watts helmet is a great helmet. about $100 but very comfortable, the foam is thinner, but a higher density, so
the helmet doesn't have that bulky foam look. Plus it has the visor brim, which I think looks cool. also has the earpads/covers which eliminate the need for a beanie. If you still wanna wear a beanie, go a size big.
