should I chose?
Of course style is highly dependent
on your personal taste, but here are some general recommendations:
For best sun protection, choose a large brim helmet such as a Palm Beach.
Rainy weather: Select either a leather Ascot or a Phily, which will not get damaaged while
concurrently keeping the rain off of your face.
in windy/hilly conditions: Large brimmed covers can flutter in windy conditions, For wind and aslso fast downhill rides,
choose small brimmed hats like the Ascot, Avonlea, Basque, Bostonian, Cape May, Daytona, Dubliner, Derby, Eton, Fargo, or
Cold weather styles: Most helmet makers are
so focused on providing adequate ventilation on hot summer days, they forget the amount of riding .that is down during cooler
weather. For cool weather riding, choose wool and wool felt caps such as the traditional Ascot (wool tweed), Basque,
Bostonian, Brooklyn, Dubliner, Derby, Eton, Fargo, Manhattan
Warm weather styles: are made of straw and cotton fabrics. Choose Ascot (denim or canvas), Avonlea, Cape
May, Charleston, Dakota, Daytona, Devon, Hollywood, Key West, Louisville, Maui, Nantucket, Palm Beach, Panama, or Philly.

Dubliner, Eton, Fargo, Nantucket
