My old helmet is showing signs of aging. I'm thinking of replacing it. There are two brands that fit me well, Specialized and Bell. I'm looking at the Specilized Echelon, the first helmet in the Specialized line that's fitted, i.e. comes in different sizes, not a one size fits all. It cost $60. The price jump to the next helmet, the Propero II almost doubles the price and the Pevail is almost four times as much. Is there really that much of a difference in value? Is there really an advantage worth the difference? I'm not a racer, just a B class club rider (sometimes an A rider on a good day).
Thanks for the input.
