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
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.
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.
Functionally, it also comes in super bright and visible neon yellow. The cap performs well as a rain and sun shield, and also is interchangeable with a winter kit to keep your head insulate in colder climates. Out of the box, it performs very well, fits great, and also vents very well compared to other full back helmets.
If you live in a particularly hot area, may recommend the Allston available through Bern, which is slightly more streamlined but with greatly enhanced ventilation.
The sizing can run a bit small, so I'd recommend possibly checking with a local vendor for sizing before ordering.

great fit. when you flip up the bill it gets a little tighter and the edge presses into your forehead. I don't wear it that way so it doesn't bother me.Published on April 8, 2014 by David Shu
