Bought this to feel a little safer riding my bike. Could easily see it used for many other sports such as; snowboarding, skateboarding, muff diving, rock climbing, or even spelunking!

i love my bern brentwood helmet. it's totally functional and lightweight and durable and fits on your head in a way that doesn't look stupid. i get a lot of compliments on the way it looks.

the visor thing is cool too. you can either have a detachable mini-visor to help shield sun and rain or take it off.

it's not super cheap but it's well worth the value. and if you're able to find it used or discounted, there's really no excuse not to get it.

easily the least stupid-looking bike helmet on the market.

So when I opened the package my first thoughts were that it looks better than I thought, it feels more expensive than it is, and I'm returning it since I ordered an XL and this is obviously a Small. But it turns out that Bern makes helmets for humans. Which is brilliant since most bike-riders are human beings. This is an amazing business strategy that the folks at Giro, Louis G. etc. should adopt and quit making brightly-colored footballs that you strap on top of your head. Until I put on the Bern helmet, I didn't have an issue with standard bike helmets. Now I do. Those things are the the equivalent of duct-taping a football on top of your skull. It's not a helmet, it's a cranium apparatus. This is a helmet. It fits over and around my head and it just feels right. All while being low-profile. It feels like a $150 helmet. It may be warmer than a standard helmet but summer is setting in so only time will tell. I really like this helmet so far and aesthetically I normally prefer standard bike helmets due to my conservative nature so I didn't buy it because it looks rad. I took a chance and I'm so glad I did. Standard bike helmets have always been uncomfortable but you just sucked it up because everyone else did too. The first time I put this helmet on, I said never again to the regular bike helmets. It just feels and fits the way a helmet should. Way to go Bern!

After hours...days...looking for just the right helmet the Bern Brentwood was my top pick. It's super light, has a removable visor (held in by really strong push buttons), and a built in size adjuster belt-clip type mechanism so it's easy to fit. I'm new to biking, so I was very self-conscious about how I'd look with a helmet (it's new york city, you've can't look lame ;-)). The brentwood looks great, and feels like it covers my ENTIRE head without feeling bulky.

Oh, and if you measure your head and are sort of between sizes, get the one size bigger as the built in adjustment works really well.

I'm really not a big fan of helmets. I think they look a little silly, and no one wants to get their hair messed up. But riding the trails makes it a little risky and just not a bad idea not to wear one. I got this helmet because I thought it looked a little less dumb than others (and I go snowboarding and plan on getting the cold weather insert when I do go). And I am very pleased. That would actually be an understatement... I'm a really hard trail rider and have had more than couple of tumbles, and the brain is still ticking.

Another thing that surprised me was that the visor actually does a really good job keeping the sun out of my eyes. I was actually surprised, because I thought it was more for looks than anything else.

All in all, I love the helmet. I got the flat black and it looks pretty awesome (I don't like to have stuff that stands out). If I ever have future helmet needs, I will definitely go to BERN.

I carefully measured my head and I was on the cusp of X-Large and XX-Large. I read some of the other reviews and went for the larger size and it still isn't big enough. I'm exchanging it for a XXX-Large even though my head measured about 60cm.

Compared to my simple vintage 1980's Giro styrofoam racing helmet the Bern seems very heavy. Amazingly, helmet technology seems to have made a few advancements since 1988 and the added protection probably accounts for the extra weight. It reminds me a bit of a tank commander's helmet but that's okay because I use my brain almost every day and the helmet is made extremely well with plenty of padding and suspension; it should provide good protection in a bad scenario.

I never understood why bike helmets looked so dorky for so many years (yeah, I'm talking to you, Giro). Glad to see that companies are now making helmets for the skater/skier/BMXer extreme athlete in all of us. Even if we are just cruising the streets on a MTB. Comfortable fit, very lightweight. I can't find anything wrong with it, to be honest.
