Giro Savant in summer. Smith Transport ski helmet in winter.

The ski helmet's visor actually saved my teeth once. Bike came out from under me at 0mph on concrete aggregate (Nokian studs offered no grip) and I ended up on my face, my chin and the visor touching the ground. My upper right canine tooth just barely kissed the cement & I got a mouth full of sand and salt. If not for the visor, the whole impact would've been on that poor tooth.
