I was riding with this nice red, white and black Specialized S-Works helmet. However, an endo on my mountain bike caused it to give its life to save me from a severe head injury. I replaced it the next day with a black Giro Synthe MIPS. I picked the Synthe because it was up near the top of the Virginia Tech helmet test ratings and also has a fairly classic look. Also note the Elvis-style helmet strap accessories (they are "Cat Ears", which vastly reduce noise so that you can more easily converse with your fellow riders, hear traffic coming up behind, and avoid that unpleasant roaring sound at speed).
