I'm helmet shopping and I have a $50 gift certificate for SmartPak, so I'm definitely getting one from there. However, I have many tack shops in my area and have tried the three listed below and they all fit equally well and felt pretty much the same. I thought I wanted a Charles Owen but the only one that fit well was the Ayr8 and $300+ just isn't happening for this college student
I am not currently showing but would like a helmet that I could potentially show with in the future, thus, I don't want anything plastic. I'd also like to stay under $100 and still have the more modern low profile look. My current helmet, a severely outdated Troxel Grand Prix (2004, eek!), is so uncomfortable! I always end up with an angry red line/mark on my forehead and after trying on these new helmets I want one that's comfortable!
Has anyone had any experience with any of the helmets below? Or any other recommendations?
