I dodged yet another bus today. I dodge them more often than I'd like to, as I think most of us do. I've been riding without a helmet for a long time, and so far I've avoided head trauma by almost sheer luck alone. My nine lives have run out and it's time to get a helmet.
I've seen from time to time helmets that are pretty low profile. They almost look like the old leather noggin' nets, but they have a modern plastic shell to them. I know these low profile helmets don't offer the best protection, but given that I use a baseball cap for skull protection, I would say it's a 100% safety improvement.
My question is, are these low profile helmets still being made, if so by whom, and where or how can I purchase one? (I live in Minneapolis if that helps in any way.)
