    Park helmet help

    Hello all, I'm getting a bike park less than a mile from my home, dam I'm lucky ! I need help on something I know little about, buying a helmet. What are some good brands and models for park riding? I not going to be hitting the mega jumps or huge gaps but I do like to rip. I'm also on a bit of a budget so if there is a good safe helmet in the $100-$200 range that would be awesome. Thanks for the feedback

    sixsixone make very affordable full-face helmets that are well-reviewed. Never owned one, but I'll be buying one for myself

    just bought myself a fox rampage pro carbon on sierratradingpost for $220 using a 30% coupon, they have several rampage models some you can get for less than $100.

    I'm about 22.5in head and the medium fits me pretty well and snug

    Thanks checking those helmets out now. Question are these helmets the hard plastic that can take multiple falls?

    these are eps, so single impact! I'm not sure I'd use a helmet again if I hit it hard though, but yeah I believe these are supposed to be replaced anyway

    Kali make a helmet based on the 661 rage platform. Light and fairly breathable. Better colour options than 661.

    I would stay away from entry level helmets if you are going to be spending a lot of time at a bike park. You want a helmet that is ATSM certified. That shows the helmets Chin guard won't break if you face plant. The Bell Transfer and Giro Cypher are good options that don't cost a lot. You can usually find last year's colors on sale online for under $100.00.

    Thanks Rob Bod, I took your advice and ordered last years Transfer 9 for 89 bucks, looks like a sweet lid.
