Just curious, if you're trying desperately to find a different type of helmet, do you dislike the 'look' of riding helmets? I think you should just buy a riding helmet. Some riding helmets have a detachable rim so they just look like a normal helmet anyway. Snowboarding helmets are expensive, too.

I like velvet helmets. They sell them cheaper than Troxels at my tack shop. Plus I can use it for showing in too.

I havent read the rest of the posts properly, but as far as I know, bike helmets don't have the strength to hold up to the impact and can actually do more harm than good as the helmet can collapse into your head so I am told.

Snowboarding helmet? Ehhh I would still be inclined to say no, just because they are designed for a completely different sport. They would probably be stronger, but I would still say go for a horse riding helmet just because they were designed for the purpose

I would buy a riding helmet. If you are afraid they will be too uncomfortable or something they make them so that they are pretty comfortable for the rider and mine has never given me any trouble. Troxels are also pretty cheap and I like mine.

Ix-nay on the boarding/skiing helmet. Nice helmet, though, looks like a Bern. I ski in a similar one.

Same problem with the snow helmets as with the bike helmets. Designed for a different kind of impact. Snow slides. Arena sand and trail dirt does not. Snow is typically softer than arena sand and dirt, so the impact is harder. If you're wiping out on a board or skis, unless you've been doing aerials in the park, your head is starting out maybe 5, 6 feet up in the air before it hits the ground. If you're on a horse, add another 3 or 4 feet to that. You're also more likely to hit the side of your head coming off a horse than you are coming off your board or your sticks.

Just gotta say, kudos to you for being aware of and valuing your safety even to the point of saving up for the ideal helmet. That shows some real smarts. ^_^
