    Helmet Advice?

    Hello peoples.

    I'm about to head out on a helmet hunt at some local shops. Just wondering if anyone had any advice from personal experience on comfort or fit, etc. Any brands to look for or brands to avoid? Price range that's worth it?

    Thanks in advance,
    Pete.

    you can pick up a helmet for $50-$100. Try them on, with a cap, if you ride with a cap. Pick the one that feels best. They are all more or less the same.

    I have Rudy that I don't care for. The thumb dial in back tends to get caught on clothing. I've had good luck with Bell's.

    But, it's all personal preference.

    I recommend Bell. Good price, good quality. Get's the job done, imo.

    Thanks those who replied, I ended up going with this specialized align. Just was most comfortable and felt nice for the price.
