Why would you want a heavy brain bucket? My wife bought one of those Nutcase urban/skate helmets. After two weeks, she bought a road helmet and hasn't looked back. It was heavy and it affected her peripheral vision.
If you're going to get one, also make sure you have a mirror. They really do have an adverse effect if you turn your head to look behind you.
Oh, and one last thing---they offer no additional protection over a standard road or MTB helmet. In fact, the Nutcase helmet finished dead last in recent Consumer Reports ratings for impact protection.
