Are you on a road bike? If so I'd get a kask proton if you don't mind spending £££

Kask Mojito, no sweat probs and way more comfortable than my old Giro.

Kask, Giro & POC all fit completely differently. It's a good idea to try some on for size before you make your mind up.

For hot humid riding though the ventilation on a POC is great.

Surely they are all much of a muchness? I guess some will be waterproof e.g. Ortleib.

I think fit is the most important thing. Go somewhere that has loads and try them out. Make sure it makes best use of your frame geometry and doesn't rub anywhere.

Maybe find someone on social media who has your frame and see what they use.

The names escape me but there are several people who custom make them.

Bibs are better than rapha pro team, design wise it feels a bit much rip off gyakusou some times imo but pretty strapped for choices when it comes to bike gear
