Check BonkTown and Chainlove regularly. They have helmets ranging from $25-100+ a couple times a day. I saw that they had LAS Squalos up today.

Anyone have issue with their Lazer O2 head cradle web thing becoming detached from the front of the helmet? The little plastic knob will go in the hole, but it'll pop out within 1/2 a second.

I'm going to assume that this is defective because the thing that secures the helmet to my head doesn't even stay attached to the helmet.

How do LAS helmets compare to what's out there now?


On topic now, I added one of these to my hat collection awhile back since my last post here



At first I was grossed out by how the vents look like maggot holes; then I fell in love with them and wanted them really bad. Now I want to have some artist friends color the foam exposed in the vents to the color of bloody rotting flesh to make it look all morbid.

I looked at that picture and thought the helmet looked gross but did not think about why. Thank you for your illustrative comment...

I'm looking at getting a Protec Ace or a Bern macon. I'm leaning towards the Macon right now, but i do like the extra venting from the Ace. I just wish i could get pics of people wearing the Ace bike.



Do any of you own the Bern Macon? If i get the one that comes with a visor will i have to buy another headband when i don't wanna wear the visor?

Lazer Krux, I like the winter liner (Minnesota ya know), the thumb thing adjustment and it doesn't have the "racer" look so I don't feel obligated to ride at full speed all the time.
