Tough, low profile, and ultra versatile, the Bern Berkeley Helmet for women sits right at the intersection of function and fashion, are you gonna hop on that bus when it stops? You bet you are. This is a top quality Bern helmet that not only meets head safety requirements for snowboard, ski, bike and skate, but also looks excellent doing all 4. Included with this helmet is the knit winter liner, but when the snow melts and you dust off your bike, just switch out the snap-in winter liner for a summer liner with or without a visor (sold separately) and you'll be good to go for any season. Strategic venting directs airflow through to help regulate sweat and temperature, and the chin strap adjusts for a custom fit every time. Crafted with a durable polycarbonate shell and injected with ZipMold™ foam, the Berkeley Helmet has an excellent strength to weight ratio. From shredding epic pow at Alpine Meadows, to cruising down Telegraph Ave on your town bike, the Bern Women's Berkeley Helmet is a simple, stylish lid that's ready to rock it on your head in any season.


  • Shell: tough polycarbonate
  • Liner foam: ZipMold™ foam is Bern's patent pending injected liquid foam which provides a better weight to strength ratio and provides riders with a lighter and lower profile helmet
  • Thinner, Tapered, Lighter, with a higher strength to weight ratio than Thinshell
  • Vents: strategically placed to provide breathability without messing with your warmth
  • Goggle compatibility: can be worn underneath helmet or over helmet; has a back clip to secure the goggle strap; goggle clip can be removed

Nice helmet, but...
February 14, 2011

I just received this helmet and it is very cute, well made and fits nicely! The problem is that I primarily wanted it for skiing and there are no vent closures and the top of cap inside is very thin. It is often snowing when I ski and I can only assume that my head will be wet and cold wearing it. Looks great for sunny days and summer sports.

Pros: Build quality, Cons: bad design for snow

great helmet
October 24, 2013

I purchased this helmet after reading many reviews on many different helmets. I liked this one because of the looks (low profile sleek look) and because it can be used for all the sports I do (snowboarding, biking, and skating). My head circumference was 55.5 cm which put me at the end of the small size range or at the beginning of the medium size range. I had originally purchased one of these helmets in medium, but it turned out to be quite loose even when adjusted for the smallest fit. I got the small instead and it fits perfectly. This helmet came with a great soft and warm winter liner (love it) and clip for goggles. I also ended up purchasing the summer visor liner separately. It is really light and comfortable to wear all day. I bought it from Altrec because they had the best deal I could find.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value, looks good

Cute, affordable
December 03, 2010

I'd been looking at this helmet for some time, and finally decided to purchase it. I'm glad I did - it's very cute. None of those annoying/ugly black ear covers you see on most helmets. This helmet has an adorable grayish-blue liner with a fur trim, perfect for keeping warm on chilly days. The fit is great too! I was in between sizes, and went for the the larger of the two, and I'm glad I did. I haven't gotten to try this out yet, but friends of mine who have Bern helmets swear by them. So far, I'm a happy customer.

Pros: Ease of use, Great value, fur trim liner

Good helmet, misleading description
December 28, 2009

This is a nice-looking low-profile helmet. Great for multi-use (I will use for ski and bike). The liner is warm but the headband is a bit wrinkled in the forehead, causing irriation against the skin. I'm rather disappointed because I thought "completely adjustable operating plug/liner system" meant that the vents could be plugged. Instead, it apparently means that the liner can be moved to cover the vents (with a thin film of beanie). There were no "plugs" included. I thought I'd be able to close the vents, as in the Bern G2 (except not with a lever). Had to get the Berkely instead because the G2 doesn't come in small size. And I've yet to figure out how the goggle clip is "customizable" or what "twin clip" means -- I received two identical clips and there is only one place to attach a clip to the helmet. So I guess the other one is a spare? (No instructions came with the helmet and there are no instructions on the Bern website). Still, I recommend this quality helmet.

Plaid Hunter Liner is smaller than it looks
February 14, 2011

I bought the helmet with the plaid hunter liner for my wife. In the pictures the liner looked like it would be bigger. But, when my wife actually put the helmet the liner on it didn't seem much bigger than the regular liner and it looked kind of goofy. We ended up returning it. I have used a bern helmet for 2 seasons now and I have hit my head pretty hard. So I can attest to the quality of the helmet. My wife actually bought a different bern helmet and she really likes it.

Pros: Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: Cost, Bad design

received wrong helmet, but love it
January 25, 2010

i ordered the "Lindsey Jacobellis w/ Grey Audio Visor" berkeley bern helmet and received a helmet that is not the one pictured on the helmet i received is purplish-grey color with a peacock feather and a bluish-grey liner w/visor... i am seeking the one with the blue birds and a black liner, so i traded it with my roommate, who let me wear it today and it is siiiickk :) :0 the audio ear muffs sound like surround sound and the audio control is easily adjustable and conveniently located on the wire and plugin on the back of neck. it was 7 below today and the helmet kept my skull warm, safe, and dry all powday :) the music was ideal--not plugged in my ears like buds, but instead added a nice subtle backgroundmusic to another great day. the bern is so light my neck felt fully supported (not bobbley), the vents are hardly noticeable with good circulation, although whistled a bit in high winds.../bombing, and it definitely held its own in a first run crash test :) i love this helmet. i hope i can get the one pictured on this website with the black liner and bluebirds... if not, i will purchase another style/design of the bern audio helmet. my roomie is equally stoked on the sweet deal. we vote: "best womens freeridin helmet out there"

Great Fit!
February 19, 2012

Good Fit! It was hard to find a helment that fit. Ordered up a size, because I was in the middle of the sizes. Good Choice!! The lining inside is nice and comfortable. The picture did not match the color of the lining I ordered but still super cute. I do not think that I will be able to wear the helment without the lining, which is ok for me. Excited to get out there and try it out!!

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use
