i dont know i think an expensive helmet is worth it. yes they're both dot rated but still the expensive ones seem like better quality.

all cars are safety rated too but if i were to get in an accident i would much rather be in a mercedes or volvo compared to a hyundai or kia

You trust your head based on outdated gov. studies? Snell rating at least.

Sorry, ma bad


I meant DOT/Snell, which is what 99% or better of the new helmets are rated, not including bike or roller blade.

mediocre

but fit is the most important thing. and w/ cyclegear, you have a 30 day return policy vs most shops and the i-net.

if i were going for lower priced lid, i'd look into scorpion, but the don't have any pink lids.

My advice would be to pick out designs you like from several companies and go out to the cycle shops and try on helmets to get the one that fits your head properly. Every helmet fits differently. I had a design that I was set on but that helmet didn't fit my head, so I had to settle for a helmet that fit great but not my first choice in designs. Ultimitly you have to wear the helmet and be comfortable in it. If it gives you a headache or you have to constantly jack with it while riding, the riding experience becomes bothersome and dangerous because you are distracted from driving.
