Bern Women's Berkley Summer Helmet with Zipmold Foam
The Bern Women's Berkeley Summer Helmet is made specifically for women. Bern is going where no brand has gone before, designing helmets with a true, customized female fit. Until now, most women's helmets have been downsized men's models, resulting in poor fit and less-than-stylish looks. Bern answers women's needs with gender-specific models down to the graphics. Designed from the start for women - and only women. The Berkley offers state of the art Zipmold construction and many of Bern's core innovations, while keeping the wallet in mind. The look and feel of a hat, with the head protection of a helmet. Zipmold hard foam meets ASTM F 2040, CPSC and EN 1078 standards for bike and skate.

I bought this helmet for my wife for Christmas, we looked everywhere for a helmet that didn't look so huge / cheap. The Bern helmets were just what we were looking for. The straps adjust easily for a perfect fit. My wife loves the color scheme and the bill. It looks really good on her! High quality. Well worth the price.

Best helmet I ever bought!
Actually this is the only helmet I have bought! But WOW is it comfortable!! And cute. I bought the Matte Grey Flower Graphic with Visor and it is beautful! I'm so much more confident on the road and on trails when wearing my helmet....feel much more safe. And look cute too! The helmet comes with the visor insert (which is padded) and another insert (padded also) that does not have a visor which could be used more for night riding, or on cloudy days. I haven't used it yet on a really hot day (which there aren't many of in MN anyway), so not sure on how good the air flow is. The helmet adjusts at the back of your head and on the chin straps. I measured my head before I bought it (you should too!) to determine the correct fit. I bought the small, and it fits great!

This helmet is very comfortable and fits well. It looks great too. The only downside is that with the padding it is a little warmer than some other helmets out there.

Helmets are usually ugly
A few weeks ago my Bern, Berkeley summer helmet (in gloss white) arrived from Altrec.com. I know how important it is to wear a helmet (especially when you're riding bikes in an urban setting like I am). This helmet is different than any others I've ever seen or tried on. Not only is it really comfortable, but it looks good. Other helmets need so much adjustment and then they just sit on the very top of your head. This helmet covers more of your head (which makes sense). It's also cooler-looking than regular bike helmets (which look like alien heads to me). Since I've started wearing it, I've gotten quite a few compliments and my husband and child both want Bern helmets now too.
