    I wear a Giro Eclipse, which is basically your standard issue simple black roadie helmet. If I had the option between wearing some wind tunnel-testing, 47 vented, abstract sculpture-looking, Team America World Police coloured nightmare or the helmet you just posted, I'd go with your's.

    With a helmet like that, you'd get all the girls.

    I wear something similar to that (a pro-tec "Extreme" sports helmet). It works great, it just makes my head look huge. As for whether anyone gives me funny links *shrug*.

    exactly right. road helmets are designed for weiners. skate and bmx helmets are more comfortable, look better, and cheaper. they're just heavier and less aerodynamic, which, like i said, only weiners care about.

    My protec has lots of vents, not too big.
    BMX Ace freestyle version, light color. Came with a spare washable liner.
    Ya, I wear it riding road as well as off.
    I'm a cycling fashion dork.

    Besides Harryhood, I have another friend who wears a protec skate helmet. It's even come in pretty handy in a fight for him before, lots of weight on those things.

    When you do a 6 hour ride, that 1 pound helmet on your head might make a difference being supported by your neck for that amount of time.

    "Ace Freestyle Signature: An updated skateboard style helmet with larger oval vents and minor reshaping of the shell lines. It still has a round and smooth shape. For bicycle riding you must get the dual certified Ace Freestyle, not the outwardly similar Ace Skate, which is sold for skating in skate shops rather than bicycling and is not certified to the CPSC standard."

    http://www.bhsi.org/skatplus.htm Use a bmx lid not snowboard etc I guess.

    No web info on Protec weights, I emailed the company.
    Will post back if I get a reply with the #'s.

    Maybe, but at least your helmet is designed for real bike accidents, rather than rolling down masonite skate ramps.
