Red Trace helmet is good. You can buy it from evogear now for $39 [$20 off]. I believe it is the lowest price on the web. Just do a google search. If you think you are lucky, enter for your chance to win one for free at whogets.com

You will have to try them on for sure. For example: if you cheaped out and bought a Lamar 1000 or the 3000, you will find the 2000 will fit completley different even though they are all the same size from the same manufacturer (I assume). I bought a Lamar 3000 a few years back and ended up nearly splitting the helmet in half after hitting a jump and smacking the back of my head on ice pack. A nasty concussion that cost me a month of riding though at least I'm still alive. However, while the concussion would have been unavoidable, I think it would have been lessened by a better quality helmet. Watch out for a lot of Bern helmets, which are rated as more of "bump" hats as opposed to sport helmets. Lightness and ventilation are important factors. K2 makes some really good helmets.

Bottom line, get what fits and is comfortable. I bought a Burton helmet almost 10 years ago and have worn it riding ever since. For me it is incredibly comfy and the thing that surprised me is that once I found the right helmet, it was more comfortable than when i used to where a hat. Now it is helmet and goggles all days.

I have one. THEY ARE HORRIBLE. Little protection for the back of your head, heavy as all hell, no air vents. Bad buying one my part. I'll admit though, I do like Giro, and also RED. Get what fits, and make sure it as ample protection

Red skycap (yes i know, the evul Burton) but it is durable, fits well, importantly it is as comfy as you need it (ie breath able and no cranial hot spots), plus it is nicely warm and so there's no need for a beanie etc underneath, which would just compromise the qaulity of fit.

plus looking at my avatar, it makes me look like a space monkey! yay!

I use Giro Fuse (with audio inserts). Used Pro Tec before. A lot of holes helps quite a bit.
