    Helmets...

    What is the difference between a 39.00 helmet and a 99.00 helmet.

    I need a new 1 and my wife, who is going to ride trails for the first time this weekend needs to get 1 tonight.

    More expensive helmets are generally lighter and have better venting. They may also have better padding (sometimes washable) for a more comfortable fit. Safety standards are safety standards, so it's not as though you're less likely to fracture your bonce if it's in a 99.00 pot...

    The difference is whether you did your research before buying. You can find a lot of the $100+ helmets for $50 or less if you shop smart.
