Bern's classic is thinner, lighter, and more versatile.
The Baker EPS Visor Thin Shell Helmet is Bern's original brain bucket, now certified for mountain biking as well as skiing. The thin ABS shell feels light for summer weather, and EPS foam protects your dome from hardpack and rocky terrain. Boa's adjustable dial ensures a fully secured, wraparound fit. There are slots in both ear pads for audio compatibility, and a goggle attachment for straps. This helmet comes with an interchangeable EPS Winter Liner that you can switch out for an EPS Summer Liner.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
It feels very solid for how low profile it is. Runs smaller than giro helmets I would say.

I have had Bern for a few years now and I am very impressed with the functionality and fit of this helmet.
Although the model I have is a bit older I can always rely on this helmet to keep me safe as I head down the slopes. The inner liner that comes with the helmet is perfect for those colder days on the mountain. Unfortunately, the model I have does not have the BOA fitting system, but I can imagine how well the BOA fitting works out! I have had a few close calls in which I clip a few thicker branches going through the woods and thankfully this helmet took 100% of the blow rather than my head. This helmet also fits most goggles very well. I have a pair of Anon Hawkeyes and I have NEVER had any issues with this combo. No fog, no ridiculous (gaper) spacing - it's a match made in heaven. I also have a ridiculously large head so I went with the L/XL and it is a very nice fit on me.
Whether you are hitting the park or making tight turns through the trees Bern produces some high quality helmets for a solid price.
