I have a road bike an have a bell road helmet (granted I want a new lid for that too).
I picked up a Raliegh Misceo bike. It's all flat black. I plan on swapping to red cables when I change to BB7 brakes for fun and to add some color.
That being said.....I cannot decide on a damn helmet! Problem is the selection online is so much better and I dont want to drive around to 50 stores. My initial intentions were an urban skate style helmet. I will be riding around town and in 90+ degree weather here and there. REI, Sportchalet, local bike shops carry few brands but not all.
Ive tried on so far these below:
Giro Reverb -- I like it, its light and has a visor. I was thinking matte black and then maybe tape off and add some white and red. It doesnt sit as flat on the head as Bern helmet does. Definitely looks old school.
Protec Bike/Skate Ace Fit good. No visor but I can make one or wear a cycling cap. Worry about the venting.
Bell Faction -- Fit really good. Just worry about the heat in this one.
Bern Brentwood I think thats the model I tried on. Not many stores had a good selection. I may drive to a different REI and see if the have larges in stock. Great fit. Like the additional winter linings available. Not sure on the venting.
Specialized Covert - Fit really good but even less vents and smaller compared to all other models. Cant find any reviews online.
Specialized Street Smart -- Like the looks, cant find it locally to try on. Not sure my size.
Scott Watu -- Fit amazing! Visor comes off, didnt look too bulbous. Shop only had ladies and I cannot find it online. White looks smaller and I may be inclined to use it for both road and city.
What do you use? Any input on the models I listed?
