I am riding with a specialised propero, which up until yesterday was a 
great helmet. It's 1 step down from the pro model, has lotsa vents, lightweight, 
and $100. Unfortunately I discovered upon impact that it slides up in 
head-on-ped collisions leaving your head and eyes to take the blow > when 
properly tightened :+(   Fortunately a black eye is supremely minor compared with 
all the other alternatives and I'm still smiling. If you're rocking a helmet 
or considering it> don't buy one(like I did) that leaves too much clearance 
in front so your head is the buffer? I know ventilation is key but if your 
head-dead overheating won't be a factor:+0   I don't have the cash for it, 
but the Catlike Whisper (in appearance) seems to come down further than most 
over the forehead area which should enable it to take the hit rather than 
you. If you have a helmet that has spared you this lesson, please shout out?   
Thanks &
Head Peace:+)
