    Best vented helmet with a visor?

    I have a Giro Animas that I am happy with, but someday I will probably crash and break it. Are there any helmets WITH A VISOR that are even more vented? I looked at the Giro Pneumo today, which is a road helmet with a visor, and it looked only a little better vented.

    Best vented helmet with a visor?

    Bern Allston is what I use.

    Huge vents, flip visor, hard zipmold shell. $90 though.

    Gotta try a bunch of different models before buying. Just a few weeks ago, I went shopping for a new helmet. Because of my rounder head shape, only the Giro's and Bell's fit comfortably. Ended up with a Bell Super which is very well ventilated and has one of the longer visors I've seen. I'm coming off a Giro Phase which is also very cool to the head.

    Giro Hex, i bought it because of the vents.... had no idea how good they worked until i started wearing it. The comfort was also a lucky strike as i bought it online without trying one on.

    The Hex is my go to helmet for summer riding. Even on humid days you can feel the air flow on your head. Lots of forward facing vents.

    I've only ever used Bell helmets, I kind of fell for their ad campaign way back when, "If you have a $10 head, wear a $10 helmet." I have a Bell Super that seems adequately vented even through the 3 straight weeks of 90+ degree days and super high humidity we had in New England earlier this summer. I really like the extended coverage in back, though I hope I never have to use it.

    I got a Bell Sweep yesterday. Looks well vented. I couldn't try it out yet, but I will as soon as I can. You can use the sweep as mountain and road helmet so it's quite versatile. It's on sale on evans cycles. Only 55 instead of 100.

    Same here, I have several.
    I like it for commuting since it has an adjustable visor, good for low-sun glare in the mornings and evenings.

    Uh..you can use any helmet as a helmet. Lol except for dh/fr where full face is basically mandatory.

    I currently have a Giro Hex.

    Well vented, feels light, good protective coverage (especially the back of the head), easy to adjust
