If you are a sports junkie, there is absolutely only one helmet you will ever need: The Bern Macon w/ Visor Bike Helmet. For all your favorite sports where you put your pretty little head in jeopardy, you’ll only ever need the Bern Macon Helmet. That’s because it is designed for bikers, snowboarders, skateboarders and every other sport imaginable where a top priority might be keeping your brains intact. But the desirability of this helmet does not stop with the brilliant safety features provided by the high-impact ABS shell which wraps over the EPS foam liner. In fact, the best feature of The Bern Macon w/ Visor Bike Helmet might be the Sink Fit feature. This feature allows the helmet to fit around your head. This configuration makes the helmet comfortable, but more importantly, it makes it stylish! Finally, a helmet that actually makes you look good! No more helmets sitting right on top of your head, making you look hilarious!
Riders who get after it in every season, on any surface, need the tough-as-nails Bern Macon Helmet. The Macon's clean lines and durable construction are enhanced by a removable visor that provides shelter from the sun and precipitation.
I bought the Macon for commuting on my bicycle. Most things make me look like a doofus, but the Macon does not. Mine is gray. I like it. In two months I have gotten two and a half compliments about it. The half-compliment was a woman telling me that she didn't like traditional road-style helmets. She didn't say that my Macon looked better or anything, so I counted it as half of a compliment. The other two were real compliments, also from women, about how good I looked in the Macon. I am a man (despite what my girlfriend yells at me through the bathroom door), so other men who buy the Macon can also expect flattery from the fairer sex. Good-looking women who wear the Macon will remain good-looking, but I can not speak to the Macon's effect on plain girls. I have a hunch they will remain of a homely persuasion. I forgot to mention that the Macon is comfortable, so here goes. The Macon is comfortable. Also, I got hit by a car the other day, but the car did not hit my head nor did my head hit the ground (I have excellent reflexes), so I can not yet report on the Macon's life-saving abilities. If I never update this review with more information regarding said life-saving abilities, you can assume that (1) I have become an even more attentive cyclist or (2) that the Macon gets zero stars in the life saving department. To recapitulate:
The Macon has sex appeal but will not correct unsexiness; the Macon feels good when I wear it; the Macon will theoretically protect your head in a crash.
It is a very comfortable and stylish helmet. I use it for both commuting on my bike and skateboarding and it is perfect for either activity. in addition you can purchase a winter lining and use it for skiing and or snowboarding as well which i plan to do once i start riding this season. I would also like to point out that hucknrolls sizing guide was spot on, shipping was free and the helmet was at my door within 3 days of ordering. The price is also the lowest i was able to find as two local bike shops wanted 75. so in summary, buy this helmet and buy it from hucknroll
Hannds down the Bern Macon is the most versatile helmet out there. Biking, Snow, Skate... your covered. The Macon complies with all those fun industrty safety standards so you know you can rock n roll with this lid on your dome. The Sink Fit feature from Bern always provides a great fit and the visor on the Macon keeps your vision true and style in check.
read the fine print.
this helmet is advertised here as coming with the Brock Foam.
Unfortunately, it shipped with the standard EPS foam. So if you are after EPS, great.
If you are after Brock Foam, look elsewhere.
