last season I've gotten a new helmet (giro surface s) and this one is a lot bigger an bulckier compared to my previous one. I noticed that the strap on my goggle got streched and lost it's form a bit, so this season I will wear it under to prevent further streching

i HATE wearing my helmet, but in an effort to get my gf to wear hers, i decided to wear mine lately. ive gone back and forth with it under and over the helmet..i think it looks better with the goggles under the helmet, but it is a pain in the ass to take it on and off to take the goggles off..i can go either way with it really.

Alright, so here's a question.

What brands of helmets do you think are better for going 1) over or 2) under?

Right now I have a black Smith Maze and I look like an astronaut when I go over the helmet (I put on the ear muff attachment when I go over the helmet too). When I go under, I take off the ear muffs and inside padding and wear a beanie instead. Its still weird though, the helmet slides around just a little bit = unsafe.

And....go.

i have a smith maze and i have the same issue..with the ear pads and goggles over, i look like maverick from top gun. when i take out the padding and wear a beanie with the goggles under, it looks alot better. with my bern baker helmet, i still think it looks a little better underneath, but it definitely has a lower profile and just looks better with the goggles overall..under or over. i tried them both, and i can go either way. i like having a beanie on when i take my helmet off but i also dont want to compromise the protection my helmet gives me by wearing it improperly

Eastside, are you getting a lot of slippage when you go under the helmet? Maybe its the beanie I'm wearing or just the shape of my head....

um i wouldnt say slippage, but its obvious that the helmet doesnt fit the way it is designed to..it fits BETTER with the Bern helmet than with the Smith, meaning that it feels as if it is still giving me the protection that im wearing it for whereas the Smith would likely move around alot more..i think that has alot to do with Bern's "sink-fit" that sits lower on your head for a lower profile look

I've yet to get my Maze to work with the goggles under no matter what I do. I really do love the helmet though, aside from the giant earpads.

My buddy has the maze and runs his goggles under. He doesn't use the earpads. He wears a beanie underneath instead. You might need a larger size helmet to fit everything underneath.

My capix helmet came with 3 sets of padding. I use the thinnest set in the front and removed the rest and run a beanie. My goggle strap fits snugly underneath. Try doing the same.
