Okay , guys. I'm a slow learner , but I eventually do learn. After suffering a crash in 2009 in which I briefly lost consciousness and then being hit by a car in 2010 , I think I'm ready to start wearing a helmet. But here's my situation. When I ride , I ride far and HARD. I tend to sweat a lot on my head. The helmet designs I see are mostly like cages , appearing to be well-ventilated. I'm not sure that will work for me. I have mostly been wearing a baseball hat when I ride. Partly to keep the sun off my face , but mostly to keep the sweat out of my eyes. I need something that has ventilation AND some sort of absorbent band. I quite often will read user reviews on amazon before buying a product,but the ones I've read on bike helmets don't seem to mention this. Does anyone know which helmet offers these features ?
