    the skate classic the one with just soft foam padding is the best fitting i think maybe not the best protectuon wise but i have worn it for years and just replace the foam the shell is about 8 years old i think i mite try the kyack style next

    I'm 37 and only still riding be because I wore a helmet my whole life. Some of the concussions I've gotten over the years could have killed me without a helmet.If you don't wear a helmet, you're either top level pro good or not pushing enough. I wear a helmet and couldn't give a crap less if it "cool" or not. Eating out of a straw for the rest of your life isn't that cool either kids.

    Helmets are awesome...everyone should wear one..fashion or not..it protect whats left of your brain from all that drinking from jams.

    I wear mine even though I hate it, Ive got a Protec classic and it sits so high on my head and I hate it... anyone got any idea of a slim, low fitting helmet, the TSG evo ones look quite good...

    This is just the ticket for me. I really wish everyone would start wearing helmets. If more people started wearing them, they would become less of a fashion issue. Fashion is a social construct. Be part of the trendsetters and wear one.
