It's time for a new helmet. My newest one is probably 8 years old or older and I noticed some of the plastic pieces that hold it together are starting to tear. I have the Troxel Sierra and many times forget I have it on so will probably buy that one again but wanted opinions on the Cheyenne model.

Is there anything different about the design or materials used that make it $50 better than the Sierra? I love the way it looks but I don't see it on top of my head and I'm not concerned about what others think.[Wink]

Here is the Sierra:

This is the Cheyenne:

I see that HorseSaddleShop has the Sierra but didn't see the Cheyenne model.

and for those that don't wear helmets...

This guy was not wearing a helmet when he parted ways with his horse just a couple of weeks ago. He was hospitalized overnight but fortunately does not appear to have serious injuries. Look at that bump on his head! I don't know the details of what happened to cause the unscheduled dismount.

I like the stitching on the Cheyenne.

ME TOO!! But I don't know that I like it $50 more. I guess I can rationalize though... if I can use it 5 years, that's only 10 a year more. Dividing that out by # of rides... hmmmm.... average 1/week - 10 (maybe)... so 42. 10/42 = .24...

Sounds reasonable to me! [Big Grin]

Looks to me the difference is just updated cosmetics. But hey, life is short. Go for it!

My head is shaped like that naturally.

HA! I remember when you were knocked out at MTR! Scary for all of us.

I remember that too! Glad everything worked out okay.

Wow, thanks for the memories! There's been a lot of water under the bridge, many miles, and several broken bones since that memorable weekend!

Hard to believe it was 10 years ago.

GOSH! 10 years ago? That was such a fun weekend once Harv got his marbles put back in order.
