Default Favorite Helmet

What's your favorite helmet, and why?

I have a really long (from nose to the back of my head) and thin (ear to ear) head. It's really hard to find a good fitting helmet. Right now I have the Smith Maze. It's okay, I just hate how huge the earpads are. Anyone else have a similar shaped head?

Cool

I just recently got the Sandbox Certified Low Profile. It's so sick. Its got alright padding, has the EPS liner, and it fits really nice. Not to mention the style of it.

i got a bern macon that i used last season (picked it up cheap from Big 5 after a nasty spill), but i just ordered a POC receptor bug from theclymb a few days ago, gets here on the 3rd . Nothing wrong with the bern, its just i couldnt resist a lime green helmet for cheap lol.

I have a similar head shape and find that K2 helmets work pretty well for me. Especially the Rival Pro and (almost as well) the Diversion.

I just picked up a 2013 Ride Duster helmet. Needed a new helmet because my new EG2's goggles wouldn't fit my old helmet. Great fit with the goggles and looks good. Also, it comes in with built in headphones which is a plus if you ride with music.
