    Bell or Azonic are good. Check out Jenson. http://www.jensonusa.com/store/sub/229-Helmets.aspx
    But even a lousy downhill run is better than a day in the office!

    I've got the Bell lid, thats a good price and fits me really well. Thats the only thing i'd say, try a couple on if you can. I tried the Giro Remedy and Spesh Deviant and didn't really feel that comfortable in either, but the Bell fits me perfectly.

    Fit - each brand tends to fit slightly different (Giro, Bell, Spesh, 661) so if you can, it's really worth trying each one on before buying.

    After that, just decide if you want to spend more $$ for a carbon helmet. The fiberglass models work fine other than being a little heavier.

    Azonic Fury at Jenson is a great lid for the price. I personally recommend the Remedy too, and they can be had for around $75 if you can manage a little extra.

    Those are very flexi helmets. You can squeeze them in on the sides. The best low cost helmet is the Giro Remedy for around $95. It is very close to a true Moto helmet with out the weight and has vents.

    Good luck and always protect your brain!!!!!!

    ProRider makes GREAT full face helmets, and they are innexpensive.
    Other then ProRider I guess the Giro remedy is good, as with all the others here.

    my votes:

    Bell Bellistic (for sure, wicked light, wicked cheap, wicked protection, gracia rides one)
    Pro-Tec Ace Spade (multi-impact foam, if you can fit their skate helmet, you can fit their fully)

    basically the main rule for buying any helmet is get what fits the most.

    i've only used the Bell Bellistic so I cannot comment on the others except to say they did not fit "my" pumpkin as comfortably in the store.
    Bellistic - light weight, decent vents, cheap, and, i've had some really good wrecks onto rock, with my bucket being the leading item of impact... very happy with the outcomes...
