Shapeless

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mill Valley Mum from CA on Friday, March 13, 2015
I really wanted this helmet to work. I bought it in L/XL for my son. This Bern helmet (in size L/XL) claims to be 57 cm. My son's head is 22.5" which is 57 cm. It should fit, right?

No! With the winter liner in, it is very snug and not in a good way. Without the liner, it's a big, round, shapeless bucket that slides all around. So, clearly, it is only meant to fit with the liner in. But, the liner is way too hot for regular sea level NorCal activities. The helmet also lacks ventilation, so with the winter liner in, it is more like an ill-fitting ski helmet than an every day, multi-sport, biking, rip-stiking helmet.

I'm still looking....please forward me any helmet ideas if you've found a wonderful multi-sport helmet for your biking, rip-stiking, skateboarding, scootering pre-teenager. Thank you!!!!
