helmets

i got the bern barker with the peak on order, i get it tomorrow. havent rode in it yet, but its super comfy and looks sweet. another plus is that i can take out the liner and use it for wakeboarding in the summer.

I see most people with Giro, but I got a Protec cause I liked the way it looked. None of the fancy design and aerodynamics.

Like boots, you don't pick the helmet, the helmet picks you. I suggest you just go to a couple of local boarding shops and try on as many different helmets as possible, then buy the one that fits you the best (no pressure points, but also fits snugly and doesn't move around). Sizes vary widely from company to company. Me? I have a Protec B2 Snow that I picked out just for the reasons listed above. Style wise, I would have preferred a different model, but then again, helmets aren't for style points.

I rock the Smith Holt and its a pretty good helmet. It's also a convertible (you can take out the ear pads and lining) so you can take it to the skate park if you're into that sort of thing. It's pretty light and I don't have much to complain about it besides it doesn't fit too well with my oakley wisdom goggles. But then again, what helmet does?

I wear the R.E.D. Hi-Fi...most of the time I forget it's even on. It also keeps your ears toasty and the ventilation on top is nice.

The R.E.D. Trace is awesome. It's the one I wear when I feel like I need to wear a helmet. Very comfortable, lightweight, and looks like a skate helmet.
