Helmets??
 
Yo wasup guys and girls,

I have got a question for you all.
I am looking for a good helmet..
But I want to know at what you look when you buy one.
So please give me some help.
Can you also tell me what irritates you (comfort etc.).
Or any reason why you would not buy that helmet...

Thanks for you help!!!!

Ari :cool:

Mine is a Giro and I find it extremely comfortable. It's really all a matter of personal preference though. Try on a bunch, and you'll find one that fits you well. :)

Just go to the store, try on a few helmets to get a sense of the sizes, and when you find something that you think fits you well shake your head a bit to see it ain't moving and fits tightly (yet comfortably)

My friend went and bought a helmet the other day at a ski shop, and the salesperson told her the helmet strap clip went in the front of the helmet. He was having her try all the helmets on backwards. :laugh: If a salesperson tells you to do this, laugh in their face and tell them they are an ignoramus.

Really? Who is your friend? :rolleyes: :laugh:

Yeah just try on a few, make sure it feels comfortable, that your ears will be warm, and that you have it on the right way :|

Yeah, he made a good and *important* point. You want it to fit snug, but not tight enough to give you a headache. If you forsee wearing balaclava / face mask, wear it when you are trying the helment on. If you wear goggles, bring those too. Some helemts are not (really) compatable with goggles, others are. Any decent sales person should be able to help you out. And if you want to be sneaky, go try stuff on at a store, find your size, etc, and then try to score it from a close-out sale on-line. You can get some serious discounts that way.
