I currently have a KBC helmet that I paid about $350 or so for from memory. It does the job and is comfortable, and given my enormous bonce (size XXL) it was the best I could find under a grand at the time. The one real problem I have with it is that at anything over about 100 km it decides it wants to rise into the sky, taking my head with it. I'm a science guy, I even understand that it's Bernoulli's Principle and the fast flowing air over the curved top is causing a low pressure zone on top of the helmet that the air pressure below tries to push it up into. But that doesn't make it any more comfortable, and given the (unkown but possible at this stage) chance that I might have a new job soon with a 40 min freeway commute each way... Is there a make of helmet that doesn't do this?
