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.

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 have been looking for a bicycle helmet that didn't scream "Tour de France" or look like it came from outer space. I checked out the Bern line of helmets and discovered their EPS helmet with visor. I have a large melon and was pleased to find that Bern had helmets in my size (7 3/4). The X-Large fit the bill (and my head) quite nicely. It fits snugly but comfortably and I can always make adjustments if I need to. The red color add visibility without being too over-the top. The visor is small but does provide a degree of shade from the sun. Ventilation is adequate but the helmet gets a bit warm in hot weather. But the safety factor trumps a small amount of sweat, so I really can't complain. For a guy in his 50's who rides for recreation and not speed, this is a great choice.

I specifically chose THIS model of Bern helmet based on the fact that the visor (as seen here in the picture) is part of the actual hard helmet. When it arrived I saw that the one shipped to us is just like most of these Bern helmets - the visor (which is not the same color as the helmet) is actually a soft visor that is attached to the inner lining of the helmet, and it's not a hard section of the outer helmet shell as pictured. Luckily my daughter likes it anyway, so we'll keep it. But the picture is definitely deceiving!

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.

The Bern Macon comes in a high degree of personalization in the way of color choice and hat pairing.

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.
