    need something to replace my Smith Overtake mips helmet

    i crashed today and hit my head on the ground while going pretty fast. I cracked the outer shell of my Overtake mips helmet and crushed the foam and koroid in the area of impact. wrung my bell pretty good and i was pretty dazed for a while but was able to walk away. the koroid left a bruise on my scalp though. i can see little red dots on the skin.

    i dont kniw if i should get anothet smith helmet or try the Poc Trabec race with mips or the Giro Montaro with mips. anyone know if anyone of those helmets offers better protection than another? the Smith fit well but i wasnt crazy about the level of adjustment at the back of the head. Any reccomendations would be appreciated.

    Looks like a real bell ringer for sure!

    Just to throw something in there different, look at 6D Helmets. They use a different type of system, high safety rating. Good looking helmet and has been my go to for several months now.

    I just ordered one of those 6D helmets. I have a big head, 59cm, so have a hard time finding helmets that fit
