    xc mtb helmet.

    Road helmet because with a 58 head and a bulbous mtb lid my head looked even bigger/ more ridiculous.

    BMX that I bought especially for Laggan as I kept cracking my mtb lids.

    I have 3-

    A Specialized Instinct that I don't really where because I look like a dick in it

    A 661 Evo full facer that I wear downhilling.

    A Giro E2 that I wear everywhere because it looks best and is better vented and more comfortable.

    Giro Hex for XC
    Met Parachute for scary all day alpine stuff
    661 Evo for (what I laughingly describe as)"Freeride" (ie. stuff that puts the willy's up me)

    not literally

    E2 on road and trail. As mentioned above, best mountain bike helmet made. Peak remains on when on the road bikes, of course.
    Pisspot for BMX and kites

    Bell Sweep XC, for XC night and day, Road and Commute (take the peak off for road)
    And a Troy lee D2 full face for DH, although i've had it since 2003 so need to replace..

    Did have a Giro Skyline spare lid but that was adopted by an ex and I never asked for it back…

    Just 2- my Hex, which I wear basically all the time, and my Bell Faction which is really just for when it's properly cold, as it's like brain insulation.

    2 full face
    2 XC

    I have one, a hex. Don't wear one for commuting (3 miles each way on bike paths on a cargo bike = no need).

    Just 2 . . .

    Pi$$pot for x/c and commuting
    Full face for d/h

    11 is justifiable!?!? Good grief – that would be one expensive habit before you're even spent a penny on an actual bike…

    I've currently got two: giro mtb, not sure of the model – maybe a Xen & giro ionos. The latter is especially fantastic – really cool with loads of air flow compared to the mtb lid. I don't think I've ridden without a helmet on in the last 5 years or so…

    Just wondering and if anyone has a ridiculous amount, though I can see at least 11 being 'justifiable'. Maybe: XC lid, a more bulky XC half face, a DJ/MX/skate helmet, a road helmet, a full face helmet, a helmet to commute and a helmet each to race XC, CX, road, DH, BMX ..

    I use one for all my bike riding at the moment (an MTB half face). I used to have another to commute but its a bit small and I no longer commute

    I have 6:

    1x Giro Atmos road lid replaced my ageing S1 a few years back, worn very occasionally.

    2x Spesh Decibel (one black, one black/red): took over from Atmos as main helmets, both on team deals, don't really wear either now except in terrible weather

    3x S-Works 2D (one black, one red, one white), black one for crap conditions, red one for MTBing, white one for road/REALLY dry off-road use.

    Makes perfect sense really!

    4:

    1x Giro E2
    2x Giro Atmos
    1x Giro Advantage

    Lanesra

    1 and don't know why I bought it as I never wear it – can't stand wearing a helmet (as many STW'rs will validate)

    road: some giro road one – very holey cos I'm a sweaty bugger

    general mtb: giro hex on it's way – cos it's quite holey and I'm a sweaty bugger
    (replacing a giro semi – cos it's delaminating and too hot)

    nights: very old giro something – cos it's got a torch strapped to it (even though haven't a battery right now)

    alps (or if I ever did UK DH): giro mad max – cos I'm not fast but I am scaredy

    Four:
    Specialized something (in some team or other's colours) for the road
    E2 for XC
    Xen for XC+
    Giro mad max for DH
    but I wear a helmet less and less frequently these days.

    4 for me.

    Giro xen for xc
    Specialized s1 (or whatever it's called nowadays) for road and commuting
    2 x troy lee d2 for dh (1 race weekends,1 home use).

    Giro E2 that I use for everything, off-road, road, commuting, tri. Although I was recently thinking about getting a shiny new road specific lid. Any recommendations around and up to the £70 mark? Ta

    Just one, but I could see the point in having a few more, for road and mountain, a full face maybe, a bmx thing maybe, and maybe one for night riding, as the joystick bracket gets a bit annoying.

    Fox Flux for everything; some other MET thing in case I split that one.

    Need something new as the Flux is getting knocked about; can't get Xen here; didn't pass the Aussie Standard, which is very odd…
