Winter/summer or rec/transport helmets??

So I just got a new helmet today. Fuji vented. Has lil repeat Fuji logos, ratchet fit, detachable visor, multiple pad thicknesses. Fits snug & comfy. An all around good general use helmet!

Some photos...







My transport (actual A-B riding in traffic) helmet will be a nutcase bicycle helmet, with dial fit, visor, re-contoured inner foam, multiple reflective surfaces (logos & dial). The outer bit is ABS, with vent ports. The ports have been revised to feed more air into the re-sculpted foam, delivering improved head breathing. I'm still waiting for delivery, as Nutcase is replacing my old rev that was damaged in recent crash. I'll do a full review once I get it in hand!

What helmets do you prefer, do you have multiple for non-commute etc??

I use a Giro Bishop and I hit a tree so the visor is just broken.

I would replace that, as the anchor points for the visor are in the foam....

I have 2 vintage Bell Tourlite helmets, one for summer, and one for winter. The only difference is the vents are taped on the winter helmet,
