Brain Bucket?

Decided my current helmet looks comically like a small kid's one perched on my head.
The straps are almost over my eyes, and interfere with my rearwards vision - unless I set it so I garotte myself - It's a good few years old.

I'm after something ideally with a detachable visor, and not too bothered about ventilation - more about keeping my head intact.

Any recommendations?
What should I look for?

    Casco Warp II is a nice looking lid.

    decent skid lid - Specialized Aurora Helmet 2006, on offer at Wiggle was œ59.99 now œ30, doesn't show in their picture but the wording says it comes with a detachable visor

    Sorry, just spotted, only available in small, worth a look though.

    Go to LBS and try on. Don't buy online.

    I have to agree with Rigid Raider, You should not buy a helmet online unless it is a replacement. Get yourself into a bunch of shops and put your brain into some buckets.

    Strewth - That Casco helmet's comically cool! Bit out of my league, but thanks for the link - they have some more suitable looking lids too.
    Aurora looks good. Might seek out one of these.

    Thanks for the advice / info.
    Popped in to Condor and picked up a Bell Ukon for 20 quid! They did the fitting too.
