Most comfy helmet?

Hi all! Sorry for the million questions!

What is the lightest, most comfortable helmet you can recommend? I'll be running in it for the running portions of the ride and ties so it needs to be comfy!

Tippery sportage , no harness, just a couple pads to fine tune sizing. They just fit and don't have alot of suspension dial o doodads to mess with and tangle your hair.

Oh, good, that's the one I was thinking of :). It's fairly cheap too!

Ovation deluxe schooler! It's super lightweight and doesn't look goofy or like you have an egg head either.

I have a Ovation Deluxe Schooler helmet and it's really comfortable. It stays pretty cool even though I got a black one and I ride in 90+ weather.

I second Tipperary, I just forget I'm wearing it and it looks sleek, no mushroom-head look.

I bought the Ovation Deluxe-schooler for my niece. I was impressed with how light, cute and comfortable it is. I just tried it on, so I really don't know how it would be riding/running for hours. I think the liner is washable, which is a plus.

Tipperary Sportage. Very light, great ventilation, sleek, looks great. :)

Another Tipperary sportage fan. I forgot I have it on.

Whatever fits your shape head the best. Go to a tack store that carries many brands and try on several to see what shape works best for you.

I loved my old Tipperary Sportage, but it was 6 years old and time to replace, so I got a new one. Unfortunately, the slightly redesigned newer style is not the same shape and gave me headaches. So now I have an Ovation Protege, which looks very similar to a Tipperary.

Just like buying boots, what works for one person doesn't work for another.
Go try on as many as you can. Don't buy online unless you know exactly what you are getting.
