I'm trying to decide between a new helmet here for this season. Currently I own a Specialized Echelon and it seems to put uneven pressure on the front of my forehead compared to the sides. To get the helmet tight enough so that it doesn't feel loose I get a red mark sort of thing on my forehead. I have tried on Giro and this feel was even worse so they are out.
Basically I'm trying to decide between these 3 helmets for my next one. I have found them all for ~$140ish so price is NOT A FACTOR between these 3. I know the Lazer will fit just fine due to the retention system and having tried one on briefly. I am a bit leery of the Rudy Project since my head is very small ~52cm and the Sterling's lowest range is ~54cm. The Kask has me very interested as I have been reading rave reviews about them however where I'm at *midwest USA* there are no shops that stock them.
Anyone have any comments on these 3 helmets?
Regarding my head shape I'm NOT a Giro fit person and Spec is better although still not great/ideal, not sure what shape this means I am ...
No idea about the rudy...

Oh and +1 on the shell for the Lazer. I just wish I had had the balls to get the Lion of Flanders version when I bought it. It also has an optional winter liner which is the cat's pajamas.
Courir c’est mourir un peu
otoman:That sounds about right to be, I do tend to get pressure on the front and back before the sides which would align well with the idea that my head is slightly elongated as opposed to perfectly circular.
I don't really need to worry about hair pull since I basically have none, almost shaved head here. However, the Kask does seem to have the more common retention mechanism although with the added "up and down" thing they talk about on their site.
Regardless, it seems like the Lazer is the most logical and safe choice here, when I tried one on briefly it seemed like it was almost floating over my head. The top of the helmet didn't really seem like it was touching the top of my head heavily unlike the Spec helmet I have. This combined with the fact that Glory Cycles is running the Genesis for $130 seems to make it a safe choice.
Any other opinions or suggestions are more than welcome

Thanks for the head ups on that one. I will be picked up a XXS-M probably in the next few days from Glory. Glory actually has the color I want, Black/White in my size so it's all good to go. If it sells out before then or something I will use the treefortbicycles thing for sure. Thanks
