Solid, not earthshattering
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This helmet seems to do what a helmet ought to do (I do rely on BERN's crash-testing, though). It's as comfortable and stylish as can be expected for a big chunk of foam and plastic. Some people here say its smaller than other helmets. I'd say it's just a little more appealingly shaped than other bike helmets, it's still pretty large (and I got the "s/m" size). It's not some super end-all-be-all helmet. But if you like the unracer look you won't be disappointed.

Got this helmet to protect my noggin while riding my road bike around Salt Lake City. The helmet easily adjusts to get the fit spot on and is super comfortable once you get the fit dialed. The vents do a good job of venting heat, though my head does get a little sweaty in temps above 80, but then again I sweat in a trucker hat in the same temps. My favorite thing about this helmet is the slim profile that doesn't make my head look ridiculously big. I have a big head and anyone else that does too knows the struggle.

This is a great helmet for the price. I bought the winter attachment and use it as my ski/snowboard helmet. It's really light and they are pretty stylish.
Nice fitting and slim look
feels like I don't even have a helmet on. Happy with this buy
What a Great Noggin Protector
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I'm not the usual guy who uses this product. I purchased the helmet to update my paragliding kit. I used it several times this summer for flying, and I've got to say that it's probably the most comfortable helmet I've worn for flying to date. The knob on the back of the liner gives you the perfect fit. The short bill does a remarkable job at keeping the sun out of my eyes without impinging on my ability to keep an eye on my paraglider. Now that the weather is starting to get cooler, I have purchased the winter liner to help keep my ears a little warmer at cloudbase. The helmet is light, fits wonderfully, is cool in summer, warm in fall conditions (and at altitude) and seems adequately durable to survive the rigors of checked baggage. I'd recommend this helmet to anyone.
Wonderful, Stylish Helmet
This Bern helmet was the perfect choice for me, and the color is awesome. Very bright, very noticeable and safe. I love my helmet!

From the recipient:
I haven't crashed while wearing this helmet so I cannot attest to its ability to protect your brain, but I will say that I really enjoy the functionality of the air vents, visor and ratchet adjustment. This is a very well designed and stylish biking helmet.
Saves the noggin!
Could you please tell me the sizing for the xxl/3xl ? I bought a xxl 60.6-62 cm and it is too small. Thanks
Does the cold weather liner come with this helmet?
This helmet does not come with the cold weather removable liner. Check out item #BRN000S which comes with the removable liner or if you prefer one of these color options, you can purchase the removable liner separately. If you have any more questions about helmets or any other gear, please give me a call at 1-800-409-4502 ext 4446 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Where can I get a knit liner for an xxl?
I'd imagine we will be getting more of those in stock when winter gets a little closer... So check back in maybe in like a month? OR check out Bern's website. They do have a store and a bunch of options for liners. Just make sure that you get the EPS liner, not HardHat. They are slightly different.
