Anyone know where I can buy these in store in Chicago?

 

Are they pretty safe helmets?

I got mine at rapid transit on north ave, and I LOVE IT!!!
As far as safety goes: Every helmet sold in the US is CPSC approved, so there should not be a noticable safety difference between helmets.

They look like they may be a bit less ventilated than the standard stupid looking bike helmet. Might that not be a safety concern? Early onset heatstroke?

Don't get me wrong, if I ever find one in XXXL I will buy it in a hot second!
I need a XXL I saw some XXXL on Ebay

I looked at them at REI, but they only had 2, one S and one XS. But I bought one on their website for that was on sale for about $40 and like it a lot. Comfortable, and that way you wear it.
All helmets seem to be hot to me.
Iron Cycles (3136 W. Montrose) has a selection. Not sure on sizes though, maybe give em a call. 773-539-4766
I looked all over but ended up getting mine on ebay - it was cheapest and I found the one I wanted. I love it but gets hot in the summer.
Besides the no venting, they weigh 2-3 times that of a "standard stupid looking bike helmet" If your riding position is more upright that may not be a factor, but in drop bars holding your head up all day with that much more weight makes a difference. They look like a batting helmet for tball...... I am sure it will look great on kelli though, plus there is plenty of room on em for cool chainlink stickers

I googled bern helmets and clicked on the first link, a bern brentwood, it's claimed weight was 21 oz or 595 grams, your bell weighs about 300 grams, and my giro weighs 185 grams. I now see that bern makes more lightweight models,. You deserve your apple and I applaud the educated retort.
