Well, I don't have a helmet yet. I am still in the process of repairing my bike, so haven't ridden for a month or so. This morning, it occurred to me that these "climbing helmets" might be better for bicycling, since doing a swan dive headfirst into a rock wall is probably something a climber might have to do if he loses his grip and falls. However, I'm not a climber and don't know any climbers.
Anybody out there have any knowledge about these helmets?
As you can see from the following link, the climbing helmets seem to cost two or three times as much as a bike helmet.
I have a large head. Seldom does the local bikeshop have a helmet big enough to fit my head. So I'll probably order a helmet. Should I order one of these "climbing helmets" or stick to the cheaper bike helmet?
