Stylish protection for every season.
The Bern Baker EPS Helmet was designed to make the helmet look, well, less like a helmet. A deep fit and super-thin ABS shell keeps it super low-profile so your head doesn't look like a melon, and the subtle brim and wide range of colors gives it a unique look.
The Baker starts with Bern's Thin ABS hard shell and then adds EPS, a lightweight, one-time-use foam that evenly distributes force and gives its life to save yours in the event of a high-impact crash. Bern's Signature Shape allows the Baker to be up to 35% lower profile than standard snow helmets, and the ergonomic fit means it fits around your head instead of perching on top of it. And, unlike other helmets, you can take the liner out when it warms up for spring-ski comfort and then summer at the skatepark.

I'm looking for the lowest profile helmet....
I'm looking for the lowest profile helmet. Looking for the most non melon head out there. Are the Bern's in the Watt and Baker thin shell the way to go? Between the two the main difference is?
i own this helmet, I'm pretty satisfied with it.
i tried several of their helmets i they fit pretty differently,
go out and try it! don't buy it online for sure.

Are the EPS helmets done after one impact?...
Are the EPS helmets done after one impact? It says "one-time-use foam that evenly distributes force and gives its life to save yours in the event of a high-impact crash"
I realize that any helmet should be replaced after a decent wreck, but wheres the threshold with this one?
The issue is that EPS never rebounds or regains its original characteristics after a significant impact. That means that even if the hit wasn't enough to crack the helmet open (at which point you most definitely should replace it) it also means that the ability of the helmet to take the next hit is compromised. In the end it will be a judgement call on your behalf. Even with multi impact helmets I would retire it after a serious crash as the $100 is peanuts compared to medical bills and the long lasting effects of traumatic brain injury. Been witness to that more times than I care for.
Thanks Arthur. The more i've been looking, the more i've noticed that a lot of the helmets have an EPS component. Like you said, cant put a price on keeping the brain goo on the inside of our noggins protected.
just making sure during your research, when you found that most helmets are made with the EPS liner, you understood that meant that most helmets on the market for a majority of activities are rated for a single crash. you should also notice that the price often goes up for EPP (multi impact).
