Anyone else look like a Space cadet with a helmet on??

I am 6'4 and proportional and I just look like a space cadet while wearing a helmet. I usually do not ride with a helmet but this season I am thinking of going HAM in the park.

Anyone else feel like that? lol

Seriously, that's entirely subjective. You'll feel slightly dorky (for no good reason) for the first 5 minutes, then nada.

If you're really concerned about it, take 5 to look at the brands of helmets other people are wearing, then go buy the same.


Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.

Yeah, dude don't worry. I was at Beaver Creek this weekend and some buddies and me had a big discussion on the subject...and in the end we all came to the same conclusion that any boarder/skier without a helmet has become the more oddball look. I mean pretty much any board I know with more than a few years of experience, has a helmet.

Just find one you like, and go ride.

Some helmets look worse than others, none look good.

The Smith Maze a super duper light weight and really low profile helmet. Get one with a Matte color finish, and you you look great. I am warmer with a helmet.

my riding buddy thanks me for getting him to wear a helmet, a couple years ago hauling ass in some fresh at Stevens Pass backside, he got squirrely and hit a tree head first, he was a little dizzy, but looking at his helmet closer showed that it was completely split in half from his forehead to the top.

Originally I bought one because I had two young kids, but now that I've been wearing one for approx 10 years, the biggest reason I like riding with a helmet is because, when you go over the bars and start cartwheeling, your goggles dont move or end up flying off of your head only to never be seen again

Who even notices anymore? Buy a helmet, use it, think nothing of it. Appreciate how warm your head is when it's cold out. Appreciate the protection.

Try different helmets.

I rode with a K2 Rant all last season and felt like a storm trooper every time I threw it on. Two weeks back, I stopped in my local shop, tried on a Bern Watts and was blown away at the difference in fit and profile. I was sold.

I just had my Bern Baker jacked from Sauveur in Quebec, I ordered another on the next day, they are my favorite so far. Warm enough on the cold days, cool enough on the warm days.

Look at the Bern line
