Default Best helmet(s) on market?

It is the one that fits your head the best? Does one company have better tech over the other? Any feedback would be appreciated

This. + the style you like. There are so many brands out there, all with different styles, find what fits the best, for your intended needs (one hit wonder, or plasti-shelled multiple impact, speakers or not... etc) and get one. Because the first concussion hang over you get, you'll be regretting it.

Smith Holt and Maze are my favorite.

I'm partial to sandbox bc of the low profile. It saved my skull last year twice.

The Smith Maze is my top choice right now for a helmet. How do you like it?

I'd really like to know what makes one safer than the other. I'm not calling any body or company out. I'm just wondering because I'm getting one soon and want the best for my dome.

I highly recommend the Giro Revolver, super comfy, breathable, and has an under the helmet goggle channel.

So long as they conform to the safety standard, theoretically no one helmet is safer than another. Something to be weary about though is that some are "hard hats" and designed for a single impact and others are designed for multiple impacts.

Hardhats use brock foam, and a meant for multiple small impacts. Not a certified sports helmet.

Helmets use EPS foam (hard foam), and can only take one impact; big or small. Certified sport helmet.

I have a Protec Riot. Lightest helmet ever, and saved my butt a few times when I was riding and hit a patch of ice and the board slipped from under me causing me to hit my head. Heard a loud noise, but felt nothing on my head. It was awesome. My first day riding with a helmet. Kept me warm and didn't make me sweat at the same time. Has a lip so no gaping or wind to getcha all cold. I loved it. Didn't even feel like I was wearing a helmet within 20 mins of it.
