How many bike helmets do you have/use?
2 at the mo
Giro Athlon for everything and an old Havoc for night rides. It has the light permanantly mounted, so I can grab n go with minimal faffing.
I'm amazed at the number of people with pisspots! I've never considered one, but can see they might be toastier for winter commutes. What about the lack of peak in rain n snow – is that an issue?Posted 8 years agocookeaaSubscriber
I have 5:
1-Cheapo MET XC thingy (Probably gets used the most at the minute)
2-Peakless Giro (Transfer?) for use on the Road bike or as an XC backup
3-Mace pisspot for arsing about…
4-661 strike full facer for DH.
5-Scuffed old animal MX lid as backup for item 4
I don't tend to spend alot on lids, just seem to have accrued a few I think I had 7 at one point, but 5 is sensible…Posted 8 years agonjee20Subscriber
Yes I did also have an S1, and a cheapy Giro Flume that I used for about 2 weeks whilst I waited for my Atmos! Also got an old Exodus kicking about, so technically that's 7 helmets but I've not worn that in about 5 years!
I've worn all 6 of mine in the last 6 months, and wear 3 of them most weeks!Posted 8 years agolittlegirlbunnyMember
Met Parachute for most XC stuff
Overpriced (but it was the only one left in Bourg that fitted, honest!) carbon Troy Lee for DH
Spare sixsixone for DH
Giro summut or other which I hate, and is kept set up for nightriding only
Really would like to find a decent skatestyle lid for jumping and town, but can't find one small enough (i.e. one that is genuinely small, rather than a one-size-fits-all with loads of padding) 😐Posted 8 years agoMr AgreeableSubscriber

It gives you a good excuse to rock the controversial pisspot 'n' goggles look!
I have three – a Flux for general riding, a Bell Bellistic for radness, and a Bell pisspot (because it was eight quid).Posted 8 years ago
