Can anyone recommend a good helmet that has the sort of Bern styling, but with good ventilation? Honestly, I haven't tried out the Berns yet -- maybe they have good ventilation. I used to use a standard mtn bike helmet, but took a side fall. Now I like the full coverage of my Fox helmet (looks like a hockey helmet), but it's hotter than hell.

Also, seats? How are the Crank Brothers? Crap? I need a new seat that's not too firm, but has the gap to protect the babymaker :) Thanks!

If you search an mtb helmet with more protection than average, these schould be the right helmets for you:

- Poc Trabec
- Urge Enduromatic
- Giro XAR

Is that the helmet style you search?

Great, thanks for the suggestions. I do mostly XC/AM stuff (some DH) so I need something that can definitely ventilate..With this cheap Fox helmet it's like I'm cooking my brain.

I have a Fox Flux and will get the exact same helmet if it still exists when time to replace. Lots of vents, tons of protection and no question that I'm not a roadie in it. Great style, great fit. Tremendous coverage.
