    I'd pick the white one.


    Ah...tricky poll, white is not even an option. In that case, I'm going with Bianchi Celeste and champion stripes.

    Seriouspost. Whichever feels more comfortable. You shouldn't choose a helmet based on what you (or the the Internet!) think it looks like. Assuming they're absolutely the same comfort wise, I guess I'd go with the titanium.

    Which would show up better in low light conditions. White I think. ?. Red , I favor.
    Any color works in low light conditions , actually. As long as you attach some reflective tape.. I vote white.

    Same helmet, so protection is the same, which matches the bike color theme better ? And if you have your own cycling uniform ? Matching helps, that way the ladies will know you aren't totally fashion clueless in the event one digs your cycling style. I voted titanium btw, but I have a totally blacked out bike. Both are neutral colors so they'll both match without clashing too much ?

    Yeah, this helmet fits me best at the LBS here but I was stuck at picking the color, you guys would laugh if I told you how I literally stood there with both colors in my hands for half an hour and to no avail....

    On the point of color; I ride multiple bikes but come to think of it, the white would compliment most of them and most of my kits are of lighter colors.

    And since you guys voted mostly for white; I guess white it is!

    Thanks

    Here's another way to look at it:

    [Dude 1] What's up, man? What are you up to?
    [Dude 2] Just waiting to hear what color helmet the Internet wants me to wear.

    Or

    [Dude 1] What's up, man? What are you up to?
    [Dude 2] Just buying a helmet.

    The white is ugly. Everything in cycling has gone to white. No bueno.

    In that case, luckily I procrastinated and didn't go to the LBS today.

    I've procrastinated so long on a helmet that I've never gotten one. What happens is I go to a store or LBS and they have too many to choose from. I get confused and frustrated to the point where the indecision makes me walk out of the place. The anxiety is too much sometimes and then when a salesperson walks up and asks if they can help me, that really gets me over the edge to just say eff it and leave. Now I have to explain to this person what I'm trying to sort out in my head. I just leave it as "just browsing" at this point.

    Funny to say; I'm only getting this giro because I left my Lazer Helium at home by accident..... I thought I brought it, but I didn't...

    I chose a white helmet myself. I figure, anything that helps me be seen by drivers is a good thing. Big white mushroom head seems to work pretty well..
