    Helmet suggestions

    I want my fellow spesh riders opinions....haven't bought a new helmet in 8yrs. Prob. a pretty stupid thing.

    What are the most comfy helmets out there now? Give me your thoughts...
    For some reason shops around here carry limited selections

    I recently got the Bell Sequence. Looks good and fits good. Good luck in your search.

    For XC/AM I like the Giro Xen and I love my S-Works MT (pricey, though). The Xen has slightly better melon coverage, but the S-Works is definitely breezier, which is a big plus in Arizona. I've also got a Deviant II that's surprisingly cool for a full face.

    I was just at Sport Chalet and looked at the Bell Influx and Slant and thought both were fairly nice and comfy. I shave my head, though, so helmets fit me a little different than you hairy guys.

    Full face or just the ones that go on the top of your head?

    For full face I have the fox rampage, I got it at sport chalet on sale for $30.

    For top of the head helmet I use a pro tec; skateboarding helmet. Its made in the usa, its light and can breath well.

    I just recently switched from a Giro helmet to a Bern G2. Comfortable and light.

    +1 on the Giro Xen.
