    Default Ever Heard of LAS Helmets?

    Looking to buy a new helmet. I want something different than what you find here.... Any one heard of these?

    Any thoughts on comfort, size, durability etc?


    TYIA!

    They make some uber-cool stuff mostly sold in Europe.

    I've got one. I liked that it had a thin lining that did not soak up much sweat. I hate damp stinky foam in helmets.

    I recently replaced it with another the same because I'd used it every day for 5 years, so it was durable enough for me.

    They are fairly expensive, but Saddlery Liquidators in VA usually has some, although they may have had the same batch on the shelf for 3 years so ...

    I loved mine. Then I got bucked off a horse ( flipped over the front in the air and landed on my back/head).

    So now I have a CO, because the tack store didn't have the LAS anymore and that was the only other helmet that fit me.

    Foam degrades over time, at least that's what the helmet manufacturers say to get you to buy a new one if you don't manage to boink your head and ruin your last one, so I wouldn't buy a 3 year old helmet.
