helmets that don't look like mushrooms...

Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

FYI, not only are these helmets pointless, but they are MORE dangerous than not wearing a helmet. They dont slide on the ground during a crash.(ie you break your neck.)

I see the berns listed as ski helmets, should those be good enough for biking? The women's is on sale at REI, anything I should be worried about as a guy (other than the pink logo of course)?
