Giro Helmets

I need a new helmet and i want a good one for under $100. I saw the

Giro Remedy

and the

Giro Animas

Im not sure what one to get or if they serve different purposes, i couldnt find a forum that covered this.

http://www.giro.com/main.html

Sorry i coudnt get a link directly to the helmet but im sure you guys can figure it out.

One is full face, the other isn't...the choice depends on what type of riding you are doing and if you want your jaw/face protected. For the XC/singletrack riding I do, I don't want a full face helmet.

i use the Giro Xen, i really like it, its a cool looking helmet with lots of venting... a friend of mine has the animas, but i find it looks too big for my liking. The xen is more than $100usd, i think pricepoint or jenson or one of those has it for $129usd


i got mine for $50cdn
