    WTF?

    The OP specifically referenced lids over $200. That pretty much narrows it down to an Ionos and other lids used in the Protour, unless your LBS is really hosing you.

    Sorry, I was talking about all the other responses from folks who actually have bought helmets that cost over $5.....

    Okay. Didn't really read all the later posts.


    To the thread in general: So I bought a Pneumo over the weekend, on closeout since they've been discontinued. Yes, it costs way more than basic certified lid, but, simply put, it's more comfortable and fits better me. To me that's worth a hundred bucks. Tried on the Atmos and the Ionos, didn't fit as well.

    Also, my previous Pneumo, which I got in '02, is still in great shape, I just replaced all the padding and the rocloc. Feels like new. The cheaper helmets I had in the past were partly glued together, and after a few years were toast.

    Now has the foam 'degraded' over 7 years, decreasing safety?

    Maybe, whatever.
