Need well-vented helmet...

Postby billski » Thu Dec 02, 2004 8:50 pm

I need a VERY well-vented brain bucket. I ski agressively and I perspire more than most people. By the end or one or two runs my helmet liner is soaked.

Would like some helmet suggestions. Prefer one where I could close up the vents if necessary.

Consensus at epicsi was Giro Nine.9 or Fuse. What do you think?

That Giro is the most ventilated one that I know of.

giro9 is definitely well vented. i only pull the vents open in the spring cause it gets to cold during the winter.

The Giro Fuse

Ugly? Come on. I've got some ugly stuff, but I didn't think the helmet was. It does have better ventilation than the 9. In addition last years were available at Sierra trading for $75.......uhh not any more only XXL

So I picked up the Giro Fuse and been pretty happy with it.

I still overheat (though not as much) on those bluebird days over 25F), (with air conditioning on full) so I suppose I'm still an thermal anomaly. Best price was at Ken Jones in Nashua NH.

Thanks for all the advice.
