    Stoker or Feature?

    I need a new helmet and am looking for a good value, deeper coverage one. I've narrowed it down to the Bell Stoker and the Giro Feature.
    I live in the tropics, so venting is important. Which of these two do you reckon has better venting?
    TIA
    Better to have and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

    Which ever one fits better I'd say. I find that the Bell's have a rounder fit.

    I agree that the one that fits (which may be neither) is better.

    But I have an oval head and the Stoker fits much better than the Feature.

    Good choice. I really wanted the Super, but the Feature just fit better.

    At least I saved a few bucks...

    Stoker or Feature?

    I have both. The feature probably fits me a little better, but the venting on the stoker is better. Feature is lighter. Stoker straps are a little more heavy duty.

    It's really a matter of either/or. Which color do you like most?
