    I went to my local bike shop and tried on every helmet under $100, and chose the one that was the most comfortable. Looks came second. And I literally care zero about the stupid MIPS sticker, its just a bullet point they put on the box to upcharge you. All helmets have to meet the same safety tests to be sold. The safest helmet is the one you actually don't mind wearing, because you'll be more likely to wear it.

    Pros
    Fits snug and comfortable on my shaved head, no lumps or bumps. easy to adjust. Feels like a baseball cap. Looks super sylin too.

    Cons
    Its pricey for being just a piece of styrofoam with shiny MIPS sticker.

    Great helmet but you'll need to get used to it fitting low on your forehead (like a hat). It is a little larger than expected (the large almost an XL) but it's adjustable and can snug up.

    Pros
    Full coverage and light
    Good visor yet does not block view
    Plenty of air to cool

    Cons
    Sits low on forehead. Not all sunglasses will work with helmet and it can ride on the top of my ears.

    Another great helmet from Giro at a good price. Giro is my go to brand mainly due to fit and price. The Chronicle's airflow is great. Very comfortable even in hot humid weather (have ridden with it in 100 ). As mentioned above, I do like this helmets larger than average visor. Not everyone likes them, but if you do, it's there. I like the latest mat colors that don't make you feel like you're wearing a 20 color neon sign on your head.

    Pros
    Nice big visor, good fit (for me), strong tension adjustment (although the dial is a bit small), great airflow, nice price point for MIPS. Feels light.

    Cons
    A minor thing, the tension adjustment dial is smaller than average, but by no means a show stopper.

    Great protection. I'm on my 3rd one at this point. Got too squirley at Copper Harbor and went OTB landing on shoulder/head in a rock garden. Helmet was spent, but I didn't even have a headache afterwards. It includes MIPS at $100, totally worth it.

    Pros
    Inexpensive, MIPS, Ventilation
