Hey guys my girlfriend is worrying about me starting to hit jumps and do back country and petitioned that I get a helmet, so here I am. I wouldn't mind having a helmet at all, I just don't want to drop a ton of money on it. I'm looking for something that's relatively run of the mill in appearance, legit safety wise and great audio in it. Any suggestions?
Yeah I like RED alot, that would be ideal for me...
however, i wasn't sure if i was actually going to rock a helmet so i just got the lowest price pro-tec helmet for about 25 bucks.
Safety wise my protec it is as legit as any Giro or w/e other company...Ive slammed my dome on hard pack ice pretty hard coming off rails (for sure would have had a concussion if I didn't have it on) and its held my brains in place.
I recommend the cheap pro-tec if you dont want to pay alot.. but if you want audio you might have to settle for headphones or shell out some more dough, i dk what your price range is though.
i had a protec with audio, actually had a few of them...i only have exp with that one series of protec gear, but the earpieces would fall out all the time, and it just didnt feel solid like my bern does...
again, givent thats just my experience with the protec
I've got a Scott Holt Audio helmet. Paid about 50 bucks for it in the off season and I like it a lot. Only thing is the cord they give you to connect your MP3 player is a POS so you'll likely have to replace it. Other than that no complaints and my ears are way happier than when I stuffed ear buds or headphones under my helmet.
