#!markdown Fit. The Bell does not fit me very well. The Giro wasn't available until after our short summer but I don't find the helmet any warmer than my Smith or Lazer. I've said before and I'll say it again, helmets don't really make you sweat, riding hard does. Sweat management is what counts and few helmets do that effectively. A few years ago I had to buy helmets with few vents to keep the sun off my scalp. Medical issue. I bought the Giro Air Attack road helmet which has four narrow slits for vents. Riding that helmet at -1°C proved to me that even teeny vents let a lot of frigid air through. Real DH full face helmets often have padded liners that fit more like a toque and those will be hotter. I think a helmet suspension like a hard hat is the best way to get air flow.
