Description

Skate, BMX, or a summer session at Timberline; the Bern Macon Summer EPS Helmet is versatile protection.

The tough shell construction incorporates lightweight EPS foam on the inside for a comfortable fit that stays in place and provides the ultimate protection. The Macon Helmet features built-in vents to keep the air moving through, providing optimal climate control, and it fits like a glove thanks to the low profile Sink Fit that rids you of mushroom-head-syndrome. This helmet is made with EPS hard foam that meets head protection standards for snowboarding, skiing, biking and skating and is available with or without the removable visor. The visor is a great addition on bright, sunny days, and it's easy to remove when the conditions change. It's goggle compatible and is compatible with Bern's winter liners, so you'll be raring to go when the snow starts falling.

Good to Me
February 29, 2012

Because the BERN helmet is my first in the bmx/skate category, I cannot offer the best or most insightful review of the Bern Macon Summer EPS Helmet. However, I will say I am loving the helmet - the design is slick, aesthetically it is appealing (great color scheme and helmet design). I am using the helmet for long boarding and some higher intensity skiing and it is serving me well; I have had a few spills on the longboard, hitting my head, but the helmet served its purpose, received minimal (hardly noticeable) damage and my head felt great (which is the most important function of the helmet). Additionally, the removable padding is a great feature (allows the padding to be washed, and allows the helmet to dry/ air out). The most significant criticism of the helmet (though not a big deal) is the limited breathability of the helmet (the few air holes). Can get hot and sweaty with higher intensity activity. Overall, great helmet, great color options, durable, comfortable - and a reasonable price.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, great color options, Cons: limited breathability

Protection and comfort with simple/compact design
April 16, 2011

I've been looking for a new helmet for a long time. This is the first I've purchased that I have kept. It is simple and compact. It is not big and bulky like most helmets that are 2X the size of your head. It seems to over good coverage and protection (though thankfully I haven't tested that yet) while still having good ventilation. The vents in the front of the helmet provide particularly good cooling for my (shaved) head. It fits snugly, especially with the visor attached. Speaking of the visor, I really like that it is easily removed and re-attached. It's nice to be able to clean it (I sweat a lot). I chose the matte blue version with visor. I like the color - it is a little unique without being shiny/flashy. I would (in fact, have) recommend this helmet to friends and family.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use

Very Good, However...
December 27, 2011

Make sure to measure your head to get an more approximate size for your head. I thought I was a large. I received an XL size and the helmet is snug. Comfortable to be sure, but perhaps could run on the small size. I received the yellow colored helmet. It is bright and vibrant. I feel more confident with a helmet that is highly visible to traffic. The Macon Summer does just that. I just received the helmet and so cannot attest to its durability, but is looks well crafted. I am happy to be wearing this helmet.

Quality cap, tight fit
April 28, 2011

I picked this helmet out for its looks, and I believe that remains its strong point. The color selection and multi-sport design is top notch. I replaced my standard cycling helmet for the Macon, and was impressed the new look. However, the helmet is a real tight fit, and offers only slight padding between the shell and your noggin. It seems like its not ovular enough to contour with my head. I was a 'large' with my last helmet, but should have gone up to an XL. The tightening mechanism on the rear of the helmet seems weak though. All said, I do enjoy this helmet.

Great helmet

What a great fit, and great helmet. The vents are adequate for proper cooling while riding her in Fl. The small lid is enough to block out the sun. I believe that I will be a loyal Bern customer for a long time.

Great Looking, Great Feeling
September 25, 2012

The moment I took this helmet out of the box I loved it. The liner feels good and I like the styling. The helmet feels REALLY light, but still very sturdy. It is a bit expensive, but when on sale its awesome. Plus, you have to protect your head. I'm willing to pay a little extra for peace of mind. (haha get it? piece of mind) I really like it and hope to have awesome times with it in the future.

design moving in the right direction
March 22, 2012

After wearing lightweight mountain bike helmets during my commutes for 13+ years, this is a nice change. The shell is not bulky, the visibility is excellent, and the fit is very comfortable. Bern has incorporated some nice, original design details. The replaceable liner is well made, as is the helmet. The straps are soft and the buckle is well-placed. The helmet provides EPS protection with the durability of a multi-impact skate style helmets, sans the massive outer shell. The tighter outer shell dimensions are akin to the Specialized helmets I have worn. Over the past week I have found myself surprised by how much better my peripheral visibility is and that's nice in the town that I ride. It's a feature I did not expect to rise so high for me. It's certainly toastier than high air flow racing helmets, but there is some draft to help evaporate the sweat. Bern is moving in the right direction here.

Pros: Build quality, Ease of use, Cons: low air flow

Bern Macon EPS Helmet
August 10, 2010

I got a black Bern Macon helmet for bike riding and I absolutely love it. I ride in Houston, Tx and ventilation is not a problem. Definitely worth the money. I'd say the size fits tight. So if your size falls on the high end of the size range - definitely go one size higher. The EPS helmet is certified for impact. The Brock foam is a everyday "hard hat" and is lighter, but not meant for sports. So if you plan to use a helmet to protect your head, go with the EPS.

Awesome Helmet
November 06, 2011

Of all the helmets I've tried on for snowboarding, Bern seems to put on the highest quality helmets in my opinion. Other brands seem too focused on putting out cheap, lightweight materials, but Bern's EPS certified helmets feel like an actual helmet. Bern's fit isn't for everyone's head though, so make sure you try one on before you buy.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
