  • Helmet balance and weight

    Hey guys and gals, can I add in with another question? I have some neck issues including arthritis I am finding my current Cairns helmet is killing my neck. I understand a lot of the weight talk however how about balance? Any recommendations on a good balanced lid? Any input would be much appreciated

    What model Cairns?

    I like my Cairns 1044, I also like my Bullard UST, and my Chieftan traditional. None of them are leather though.

      A 1010 is what we have used for years. Quite uncomfortable

        Interesting. I wear a 1010 at both of my departments, one of the reasons is how well it's balanced for my head. Are you looking at sticking with a traditional style helmet?

          I think you're going to have to experiment with different helmets, because not only the size of your head, but also the shape will affect the balance. What works for one guy won't necessarily work for you.

            He posted the same question in the leather helmet thread so I assumed he meant leather.
