My wife and I are going on a snowboard trip this winter, but she insists that we both wear helmets. I am all for it, I've played a lot of contact sports growing up and never diagnosed, I think I have had a couple concussions.
I like the looks of something like a Bern Brentwood, this one on the right
I like a matte black, matte grey, or white and I am not a big fan of a visor.
Are there better options than this for what I am looking for?
I chose the Bern Brentwood strictly for it's look and based it off that.
I'm looking for something similar in looks with good padding, liner, and maybe vents I can open and close.
I've had bad experiences with concussions, so I use the RED hi-fi, with the MIPS system in it, it's supposed to help lessen concussions by some rotating piece of plastic in it. Expensive, but really comfy, and you can pump up the lining to get the perfect fit.
I've been wearing the Brentwood for about 4 seasons now. I have an average size head. The medium was a little tight. I busted it and then got a large which is a little loose but I take out all the inside padding/flaps and wear a hat underneath. With my hats I get the perfect fit. Love these helmets for the light weight, low profile look, and great fit for my goggles.
Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Your head will collapse
I measure 59.5 - 60 cm which puts me in an XL. How accurate are these sizing guides if I can't try one on before I buy?
My first helmet was a Red helmet and was a medium. My second helmet is a Ride helmet and is a small. It's the same thing with clothes. You may be one size in one brand and another size in a different brand.
