Hey thanks for the pic, great comparison ... wondered if the shell was large with the extra gear in it (ie visor and the headclamp). All things being equal which do you prefer, beenie or PB?

I really don't care about the look. Its all about comfort and function.

And a white lid makes a difference on those roasting hot days.

It's also much easier for people to see than black is. I like high visibility.

Back when, I had a yellow 3/4 and a blue and white 1/2 helmet. People thought I was a cop and next to never pulled out in front of me when wearing the half helmet.

I use a Skid-Lid, it's smaller but still DOT. Nothing looks small on my XXL Head.

I need to get one with those fancy quick straps. I still go thru the buckles roll back and tuck.

My boy got a nice helmet that unhooked crazy quick.

But I hear your suppose to get new helmets every few years? Or is that a salesman lie?
