Finding a Helmet

I just recently broke my helmet and I am looking for a new one. Is there such a thing of a good looking helmet without looking like an idiot when you ride at an affordable price?

This isn't bad, more like the skateboarder style.

Evidently they quit making the Hucker helmet. I tried to find the skid lids but j & B didn't have any.
Most helmets are gonna look stupid, but than again so does a cracked skull. The full face ones aren't bad and a good idea if your downhill'n

The airwave aren't bad, they have a sleeker shape, not as round as some off the others

Personally I think most mountain biking helmets look the same, unless you compare a regular one to a fullface. Anyway, look at giro, or bell's bicycle helmets, or 661, or pro-tec.
