Made for the city.
Wearing your full-face helmet in the city might be just a bit uncomfortable, not to mention unnecessary, but the Bern Melrose Helmet with Flip Visor is right at home on crowded city streets. It has unique styling and plenty of color options to please the aesthete, and it's also made with Bern's new brain-saving Zip Mold+ foam, which has a higher strength-to-weight ratio than traditional in-mold foam for increased protection and decreased bulkiness. Bern updates the Melrose with its Boa Fit System and 16 vents for plenty of cooling airflow, and the classic cycling cap-inspired flip-up visor adds a little extra protection from sun and rain.

Bought for a friend, she loves it.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs small
This helmet was given great feedback for looks and fit. Thankfully they have not had to use the helmet for it's intended purpose. Would recommend.
I'm a convert! Never wear anything else
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
After years of trying various helmets for riding around brooklyn, i've finally found one that works: it's well-vented, it doesn't weirdly flatten random sections of hair, and the satin black + gold is just the right combo of stealth + hipness. In all honesty I'm thinking of buying a second / backup just in case they go out of production.
