Anyone wear a women's helmet?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Well got my helmet. Fits great! 275g for medium...a $250 Synthe MIPS is 270g. $30 compared to $120 for the "men's" helmet. Only differences are the color schema, it says "womens series" on the side, and the rear adjustment dial thing seems to be roomier for ponytails.

The slope gets slipperier and slipperier

One nice thing about the women's helmets is that the available color schemes are a lot more interesting. Men's stuff is always so damn boring. Same goes for women's bikes. Manufacturers seem to think that men want everything in flat black or maybe some really boring dark blue. Apparently only women are allowed to like brighter colors.

And as for pink, I'm not a fan myself, but it is really interesting that it's considered a "feminine" color, when only 100 years ago it was considered a very masculine color, and baby boys were dressed in pink.
