I love my helmet is smaller in the outside than I had thought, good since my head doesn't look large and silly, I hate the sporty look of normal helmets! this one is comfortable and a bit fashionable, asked for the medium one and is very well fitted there's also this strap for the back of the head extra adjustment = extra safety! over all is sturdy well made (I couldn't see a stitch out of place or any extra plastic) and looks expensive so I probably wouldn't left it next to my bike without a chain trough it. picked the black one so it would match all my outfits with ease the mate finish gives it a nice look because sometimes adults want to look good while biking and not with a colorfull fruit perched in at the top of your head.

Got run over by a cab a couple of weeks ago, nothing to serious, I was wearing it and my head was super safe I hit the pavement hard on my side and head, My head was perfect my shoulder not so great but my accident was a minor thing tnxs to the helmet! I would totally buy a new one just in case, probably would try a small one since my M one is a bit loose

some facts about my head: i am a hat size 7 1/2 to 8 depending on my hair length
helmet i purchased: x-large

pros: you can adjust it to fit better, fits pretty well, looks great, visor is awesome and removable, light, not hot, great ventilation.
cons: its not very soft inside which may bother some customers.

What a great fit, and great helmet. The vents are adequate for proper cooling while riding her in Fl. The small lid is enough to block out the sun.

I've needed a new helmet for a long time and I've been seeing other cyclists in Honolulu wearing these helmets for awhile, but I couldn't find them in my size at the local shops. My attempts to find them via eBay were more successful, but they cost $20+ more than Amazon was selling them for and money is tight for me these days.

I ordered the Bern Macon and eagerly awaited its arrival, which was only a few days later, thanks to USPS.

The fit was perfect and it doesn't feel heavy or bulky. The helmet vents provide good ventilation and the visor gives protection from bright sunlight as well as shielding your eyes from falling rain. The visor is part of the helmet liner and can be removed for washing. This is a welcome change from other helmets that have very flimsy visors attached to the outer shell or you have to wear a cap under the helmet, which prevents heat from venting out properly.

After using it for the whole day while working as a bike messenger in Honolulu, I believe that I will be a loyal Bern customer for a long time.

The only downside to this helmet is that when the removable liner wears-out and needs replacing, they are not available to be purchased from anywhere except from Bern's own website. But, that's okay. I'll only be buying Bern helmets from now on anyway.

I purchased the white helmet from Bern for the summer. I wish I would have gotten this helmet earlier! I always had the spaceship one until I got a new bike and wanted a helmet to fit my bike style and look a bit more stylish.

I got in the mail, tried it on and loved it right away. I adjusted the lining a bit to fit my head and it is incredibly comfortable. I opted for the white one over another color because I like that when I ride at night it is another reflector. My boyfriend ordered the black one and it came with BERN stickers as reflectors to place on his helmet. The white one will not need extra letters.

Basically, if you are looking for a comfortable, stylish, functional helmet, you can't go wrong with this one. Also, in the future, if the lining with the brim on it gets old and nasty from sweat, you can replace it as it has snaps to put in another visor.

The reason I took away one star, was because you can't remove the brim with out having medal fasteners(buttons) exposed against your head. You have to get a replacement. The visor is not an optional thing, it is for the function of the helmet.

So I've had this helmet for a couple weeks and have worn it 2 or 3 times so far. I'd have to say I'm really happy with this helmet! I was a little worried since my last helmet was the same skull cap design but this one is remarkably breathable as compared to my old helmet. I believe the vents along the back are good for capturing the air and directing it into the helmet for an overall cool atmosphere. Gotta love the brim and the harness system inside the helmet allows the wearer to adjust to their mind's content and this helmet is comfortable to wear.

Like the style of this; I don't quite look like the Lance f'in Schwinn type. Just ride a bike to commute to work, and those aerodynamic helmets made me look even goofier than I already do on a bike. Built-in visor is great, and I want to get the "winter kit" if I can find it. Rode 10 miles in 95 degree, 100% humidity afternoon and it ventilated well and the visor did a great job soaking up some sweat.

Fits well. Looks sharp. Visor is just big enough to block out sun without getting the way or catching the wind. I bought an extra liner with visor for replacement when this one gets funky.
