Toxic Avenger Strikes Again!

No mushroom head here. Comfortable (after some minor modification), cool, and lightweight. The replacement for my 35 yr old Bell Stratos. This topper will soon be all fluorescent orange with some black Biohazard symbols; to go with the "BIOHAZARD BIKE SERIES": Late 70's Olmo racer, ?50's/60's step-through balloon (star cut-outs on chainwheel- anybody?), and his and hers 30's Raleigh DL-1's; all orange and black. I'm looking for a functional helmet shaped similar to a "Trilby" hat (think: narrower brimmed fedora) for when doing those 15 mph rides on the 3 spds. Got to have a little style to go with safety if riding the uprights. Plus, that's when I might have a bubbly amber beverage or 2 mid-ride, which are usually over 10 miles. Any design engineers out there?

I might clarify the "lightweight" description for the Rudy. It's light for the style and certainly much lighter than the Stratos that I normally use.

My favourite helmet is my Kask Mojito:



This is my fat bike helmet, a Smith Forefront Helmet in camo colours:



Finally, a helmet I bought for use with my Townie cruiser, although I don't really wear it much. It's a Thousand Poplock Heritage Collection helmet in navy:
