May be in the market to replace some helmets at my house soon and would appreciate some input on helmets that are more night ride friendly than others.
Ideally, I like to keep a helmet light mounted up more in the center/top of the helmet so the weight of the light doesn't want pull the helmet down on my forehead. More of a neutral feel.
When I use a NiteRider mount, I have used a small wedge of styrofoam between the mount and the helmet to keep the light at a proper angle. The NR mount I have (old single strap style) does not have a great range of adjustment, so it's important to get it fairly close.
Are the newer two strap style more user friendly?
The mounts for the VistaLite setups (I believe they employ the same mount that L&M and Trail Tech use) I own, have a much better range of adjustment, but have a pretty wide strap that is not easily used in some helmets with narrower vents.
Of course, fit is of ultimate concern, but what helmets are light-mount friendly?
Any helmets which should be avoided for night riding?
How do you deal with your various helmet light mounting issues?
