Default sandbox helmets 2013: low rider vs classic

low rider is apparently certified for water sports and better for multiple low impacts

classic is certified specifically for snow and for high impact, presumably single use (hit head badly, then throw away and replace)

anyone have the low rider and can attest to why i should get that over classic?

i dont hit my head often so kind of torn between which one i want

I have the Cert one although i haven't used it yet but it is really comfortable. But i have to say it isnt the lightest helmet out there. In terms of size/bulkiness i can comfortably fit my vans jacket hood over it.

I've used both. Both are nice helmets and reasonably comfortable, although the low rider is more comfortable since it's soft padding instead of hard foam.

That said, I'm using the certified classic right now for safety reasons. Both will protect your head from general rocks and impalement, but the classic is better for big hits that matter.
