What helmet do you use?

Not a wear or not thread. Do what you want.

It's time for me to get a new brain bucket. Been using a Red for a couple seasons that I probably should have replaced already.

So, what have you been using and what have you liked/disliked about it?

I rock a Ride Duster. I freaking love it. It's super comfy, doesn't make you feel like a bobble head. The warmth is perfect. But the best thing is the built in headphones. Only disadvantage is the goggle strap in the back. When a take a bad spill my goggles usually fall off. But if it weren't for the helmet on a couple of the falls idk if I would be here typing lol.

I use a Bern G2. I like it. Adjustable venting works well with my goggles (dye clk) and it fits my head well.
I used a bern baker before and thought it was good but the venting wasnt great.
Before that was a Giro Shiv, light and comfy but poor venting
Also used a smith holt, didnt like the fit after my hair was cut and only wore it a couple times.

Giro Combyne. Softshell inside and outside that is still classified as a helmet. Basically, though they'll still recommend you do, you can get away with not replacing it after one hard fall.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

Bern Macon, but it's a little too warm during spring conditions. Will be looking into a Smith Maze or something else that's light.

Anybody have suggestions?

I'm assuming it's pretty light as a result of the material. What's the profile like? Has it warped or anything?

Maybe a better question, how warm is it?

Bern Watts, On that note, I got a medium and the helmet is by itself kinda jiggly but with the pads it hurts my head. I've been using a beanie and that kinda works but is there a better way?
Third Party pads?

Sorry for making the reply a question

Had the Smith Maze, its a good helmet but I feel like in terms of durability and protection there are better out there. Super lightweight and comfy though, easy to forget you're wearing a helmet. Also really good helmet/goggle interface.

Also had the Red Mutiny. Not my cup of tea. No vents so you are drenched in sweat, plus the foam protective layer wasn't very well secured to the actual hard shell which made it rattle around while riding.

I'm going to try the Pro-tec b2 this year. Size up for sure. Little heavier, but the big selling point for me is the SXP multiple impact liner. Don't have to replace this thing every time you knock your noggin.

Had a Bern Baker, loved it.

Now with a Sandbox Classic, also love it.

I have a MASSIVE head and its often tough to find helmets that fit....both those worked for the big head.

I'm going to 2nd the Ride Duster. Fits my EG2's and never had any issues with them falling off but I'm never in the park.
