Default In Need For A Helmet!

Hellu

So im usually a groomer/pow guy, and have just recently started to do alot more park riding. Today, I had a pretty close call at the biggest jump in a local resort, so I need one quick! Which helmets would you guys recommend? As a motocross rider, safety is not something to save money on, so please do recommend some good quality helmets.
I would like to wear a beanie under it, or atleast just the goggle strap! But then its just to size up isent it?

Thanks

I have a Bern Baker and Sandbox Classic. I dont wear a beanie or goggles under them though...so i can't comment on sizing, I go with no vents and thus dont need a beanie.

Bern was my favorite but due to a few impacts I replaced it and wanted to give Sandbox a try. Both are comfortable, warm and actually dont look too bad. The Bern was a bit of a nicer helmet as the brim was a tad shorter than the Sandbox.

Smart choice on getting a helmet.

Ye I dont want a helmet with a brim, but the Bern Macon looks nice!
They are cheap too, which I find funny :P MX helmets are like 550...

Go try them on. They are sort of like boots in that every brand, and even every model in a brand, fit differently. I personally like Giro because they come with an adjustable headband that you can snug up after a haircut or loosen up for a beanie.

I wear google straps outside the helmet for comfort, and even in the coldest of days don't need a beanie. In fact, I almost always have the vents open to keep my head from sweating.

Oh, and bring your googles when you try them on, or you risk being a gaper

I had a Red Trace II, but it didn't accommodate my ears. Picked up a Pro-Tec on my last trip and it's great. My ears fit fine, and it's plenty comfortable to wear all day. I honestly don't see how people bring themselves to wear anything under it, they're plenty warm already. Either way though, try it on in person before you buy.

I'd add the ProTec is much better quality than the Red IMO as far as materials.

My Ride duster helmet looks good, fits great with my EG2's and has audio in the ear flaps.
