    Depends on the type of riding you do.

    The semi MX has little ventilation so your brain would probably fry if you're into long rides...it's basically a BMX helmet.

    I personally have the Xen and I love it...low profile and lots of ventilation to keep my big mellon cool.

    The one that fits your head.
    Which may not be the Xen or the Semi.

    I use a Semi (several in fact). Fits me great. Has better coverage that most other helmets, including the Xen. No issues with heat even on 90 degree days (insulates well and prevents the sun from shining directly on my scalp. My Bell XRay was warmer in a solo 12hr).

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
