Product Description

The Brentwood uses a unique foam called Zipmold that has a higher strength to weight ratio than traditional EPS hard foams, allowing it to be thinner and lighter, while still hitting the Certifications for Head Protection. The result is the lid fits super low profile and sinks down on your head unlike other helmets that bring out the hugeness in your melon.

This helmet is narrow for my head 23in, 58.5cm. Circumference of head matches the XL size (1 size up as what other reviewers had said) of helmet but the temple is too narrow while the front and back still having gaps. I guess each individual has its unique skull shape. Not 1 size fits all. What I did was soak the helmet in hot water and squeeze helmet to shape, expanded the helmet side ways. Wallah!! Fits nicely with room to spare. I would think XXL fits better.

I have not ridden with this helmet yet, but the fit and looks are great. Make sure you measure the circumference of your head first! I have a 60cm head and the X-Large size is perfect. I initially ordered a Large to match my hat size, which was painfully too small. Check out Bern's sizing chart elsewhere on the web. If you're in-between sizes, I'd recommend sizing up. I also strangely received the wrong item initially, but Amazon made things right and the correct item arrived the next day. Be sure to check out different color combinations: prices can vary in your favor.

They should come with a note on the sizing chart that the measurement does not apply to the models with detachable visors. I first tried on the helmet with the visors attached and it is squeezing the brains out of my eyes! I removed them and voila, snug fit. Plus, I think it looks better without the visor.

A little snug, but it seems that mine is the right size. The more I wear it, the more comfortable it gets. I was a bit worried about the visor, having tried a Giro with a similar design but, Bern's version seems a lot more capable of blocking the sun... otherwise-- you could just get a cap and put it underneath the Watt's or a similar helmet. It's very well made, and very good fit and finish.

The helmet fits very well with no hot spots or chafing. The detachable visor keeps the sun, wind, and sweat off my eyes. It feels light and looks good.
My only concern with the helmet is cooling on longer, hot weather rides. I have not had the chance to test that out yet, but the helmet keeps my head warmer than a road helmet on cold days.
The packing and shipping were excellent. I would recommend this helmet for around town riding as well as someone looking for a multi-sport helmet.

Ordered over the web having checked the size charts. I'm an XL but more oval than round and was a bit worried it wouldn't fit properly. It fits snugly however with the liner so very relieved. It does leave a mark on my forehead after a fairly long strenuous ride but nothing to worry about (i'm bald so its more obvious). If your head is more oval and you measure on the upper end of the size range, I'd probably get the next size up however, particularly if you have lots of hair! Great look, love the liner/visor. Arrived sooner than Amazon predicted.

Highly recommended for any and all riders unless you're looking for something 'hardcore'....

Did I mention it was a great price also?

My only note to BERN is that we need more distribution in AUSTRALIA!! Y'know, that little island on the other side of the world?

I bought my four year old son a trailer bike and decided I should get him something more substantial than the Walmart helmet he had. I did a fair bit of research into bike helmets and found the Bern Brentwood to stand up to the scrutiny. The price is excellent...nowhere else could even come close. The quality is great and my son likes it. Not sure about ventilation yet. It doesn't seem like it would be that great but we will see when summer rolls around. Thought the visor was just a gimmick but it is actually effective. I might just have to get one of these for myself.
