lowest profile helmet/hardhat
I'm looking for a helmet or hard hat for protection against minor bumps dings cuts and so on. I know no helmet will protect you in more serious knocks so I'm looking for the lowest profile that fits me well. Just bought a red mutiny (fits the best out of protec and sandbox) without much research and now I'm thinking of returning it and ordering a berns watts/baker . Input?

why would you return a helmet that fits you the best?

Lol forgot to mention. It fits best out of protec and sandbox lol. I didn't get to try on the bern or smith models I'm also looking at because the shop that I stopped at doesn't Carey them .

Smith Maze was lowest/lightest for me. Didn't fit as well.

Give Giro a try, the revolver fit SUPER well or the bern hard hat...SO COMFY.

I am considering the mutiny or the sandbox this year what do you like better on the mutiny and or what don't ya like on the sandbox?

Supra 11-08-2012 12:29 AM

well, try the others before you take the mutiny back. I don't like the hard hats because they are ...hard hats, not helmets. They won't do much for your head on impact

Well you haul ass, this is a fact.

The poster is looking for a helmet for minor bumps and dings, which I took to mean, you know, skateboard type injuries or shit that happens in the park. I think a hardhat is better for that, as there's less "bell ringing" and chance for concussion. You can also bonk it multiple times. Real helmets are one and done.

I bow to your superior OP reading comprehension abilities, Phony.

Go for the hard hat!

You won't bow when you read that I DIDN'T read the differences between the re:flex malavitas and the cartels (man....I brought this to three threads....we'll leave it here). We're even.

One quick warning on the bern helmets - they run about a size small, so order one size larger than you would normally get.
