    Helmets!

    Hey guys, I need some knowledge about helmets. Basically all I know about them is that I need one.

    I ride mainly dirt trails. I was just curious on which helmet to get. How much to spend? Type of helmet?

    http://www.giro.com/en-us/products/c...tanium-silver/

    http://www.bellbikehelmets.com/produ...l.asp?prodID=9

    Those are two that I'm looking at, are they good for riding single track dirt trails? I know any helmets good but isn't there certain helmets for certain styles of riding?

    Thanks

    For downhill riding you see those full-face helmets. For singletrack and other stuff, those helmets are fine. The more money you spend, the lighter, more ventilated and (I suppose) more comfortable the helmets get.

    I have that exact Giro Indicator helmet... Love it, especially for the price!

    You can spend more, but all helmets must meet the same minimum standards.

    As long as your buying the helmet in the USA from a reputable store, they should protect you as intended.
    My criteria for buying a helmet is in this order ...
    1. comfort (fit and ventilation)
    2. looks (shape and color)
    3. price
    4. weight

    Get one that fits the best, then go for one with a visor b/c they look cool...

    The Giro-Indicator has served me well.
