    When I was in the market for a new helmet, I visited as many shops as I could that carried different brands and tried them on. My budget was $150, then I tried on the Kask Mojito,slightly more than I wanted to spend but fit like a glove and comfortable. There are many which helmet threads

    Everyone should be riding with an MIPS helmet. MIPS | Take a look in the latest issue of Popular Science

    Spend the extra $40 to dramatically reduce the chances of getting a concussion that could ruin your life.

    Standard rated helmets are not good enough.

    I use a Giro Feature. I like the look of it, and it's light and pretty well vented. Doesn't break the bank either. POC and 661 look nice too....although the POC looks heavy/hot. I have never seen one in person though, so it may just be my perspective.

    Do be fooled by the Trabec. I had the same thought until I tried one on. It is an extremely light helmet, especially when you consider its coverage. It is also we ventilated and keeps cool. YMMV

    I just got a giro feature really like it. Replaced another giro I wrecked in and dented.

    Go with the 26er helmet, way more of a challenge than the 29er helmet.

    +1 On the Giro Feature, I just picked one up from ebay for 56.00 with free shipping, Fits like a glove and does have a quality feel and easy adjustment.
