Im buying a helmet and I can get some discount on the hyperlite helmet.So my question is,has anyone tried them? How are they? I have heard good things about ProTec,but didnt heard any reviews about hyperlite helmets! So should i go for hyperlite,or pay a little extra for protec?
And sorry for my bad english!

pro tec all the way, the hyperlite ones are a little too bulky if you ask me and they dont fit right, but then again we all have different shaped heads

Protec has done me good. I like the Ace series, but didn't like the Shapiro one because the inner liner would split and peel... plus the removable padding was weird.

Shred Ready gets my vote for the best wake helmets.

The only option i have is hyperlite and protec!

Try both on and go which ever one fits your head better. Doesn't matter how it looks, if it doesn't fit right it can do more damage than good in some cases. The Hyperlite Helmet is made by Bern, btw and they seem like pretty good quality lids

I got a hyperlite helmet about a week ago and the padding inside is really comfotable. It's got this foam that gets smashed than it goes back to shape.

Yes i know it would be smart to try both on,but i cant do that! Well i can try protec,so i will probably go and try it,if it fits well ill buy it,otherwise ill go for hyperlite.
Colin you said that the foam gets smashed,and than goes back to shape. What about when it gets smashed alot,it will probably start deforming?
