The trouble with Bern helmets…

They seem to be replicating...

So I did some investigating.

No wonder!

I hope there is a market for helmet porn…=-)

Hello Vik,

I’ve been following your blog for a while now and I’m really enjoying it.

I have a question about these Bern helmets. I’m looking for a cool everyday helmet, but I haven’t found what I’m looking for yet…
My wife has a Nutcase helmet and they have a lot of cool designs, but I have a big head and with their helmets I get the egg-effect 🙂
So I’m wondering if these Bern helmets have a thinner shell + padding? I hope you can compare them, because they are really hard to get where I live. The only shops that sell them are more than an hour away, so I ‘d rather have a bit of extra info before I go take a look…

Thanks in advance for your time!

Don’t tell anyone, but I have a huge head. I have a lot of trouble buying hats that fit. The reason I tried a Bern in the first place is that they are so low profile compared to a typical styrofoam helmet. In my old Giro helmets it looked like I had a small UFO landing on my head. With the Bern the proportions are much better. I have tried on Nutcase helmets and they seem much bigger than my Bern helmets, but I have never done a back to back comparison so I’m just working from my sense of what they looked like in the mirror.

Thanks for the quick reply!
Looks like it might be worth the trouble to try one of these beauties…
If I end up buying one, I’ll post an extra thank you-message 😉
