    Helmet differences

    I see a lot of different commuting helmets that range from $40 to $200! I just want to know the difference. I mean, they are all pretty much rock solid right? What sets the $200 one apart from the $40 one. They look virtually the same to me.

    Any bike helmet you buy in this country will have the same safety characteristics.

    The more expensive ones will sometimes get you: more and better vents, more and better adjustability, and less weight. Oh yeah, and they are way blingy. Basically though, its just that that they are blingy.
