    low profile helmwt

    soory if this has been covered, I searched with no good results.

    I'm looking to start wearing a helmet, but I'm looking for something that is lower profile then the typical helmet. I am riding mainly on the street. Where should I be looking other then my LBS.
    ...blades don't need reloading.

    Check online. You're looking for skate-style helmets. Also check local skate stores. I wear the TSG Evolution. Much more discreet than the Giro Transfer I used to wear.

    I don't want to have a head on but oh god, I HAVE to fling myself into oncoming traffic to pass, theres no alternative!!!

    bike helmets are so dorky!

    skate helmets are a good bet.

    try Bern helmets too.

    The Citi Bell helmet now comes in a kind of dull metal grey. Very low profile and the crash tests are very good for that helmet.

    Also look into the Giro Flak - excellent forehead protection.

    Consider the PRO-TEC Ace. Good design and relatively inexpensive.
