    You write sentences like you've already taken quite a bash to the head.


    Maybe you can narrow down your selection here. Or of course you can also try searching the forums, since you're not the first person to look for helmet suggestions.

    From what you say it sounds kinda like all mountain style riding. Maybe the Specialized Deviant.

    Buy an ATSM F1952 certified helmet. Choose the one that fits you best -

    Giro Remedy
    Bell Drop
    661 Evolution
    Specialized Deviant
    Troy Lee D2
    etc

    Kind of heavy, but this one really protects your head. And looks sick!
