For those considering. This is the helmet that saved my life. If I hadn't just found another helmet to replace the one I used on the tree, I'd have been cursing that this wasn't the right size. I read that Briko is no longer selling helmets in the US, so this helmet is now hard to come by. My Briko is clearly not saleable, but the impact line is fairly small and you can tell on my goggles that I went face-first into something. My head was not bruised, but my face was all navy and burgundy. I don't remember anything of the accident, but I think I may put my helmet on a pedestal.
