Bern Berkeley Womens BMX and Mountain Bike Helmet

Bern does it again with the Berkeley Helmet for women. Using the ZIP-MOLD shell the Berkeley carries the ASTM, CSPS and EN certifications. You can feel secure and look good at the same time knowing you are wearing one of the industries leading helmets for women. Has a removable visor for those sunny days. The Zip MOLD allows the helmet to be extremely light and comfortable without losing its protective qualities.


Important to understand about Bern Helmets: Hard Hat / EPS / Zip-Mold Interior Protective Materials

It is important to understand the different helmet options Bern offers before choosing to buy. Bern offers 3 different interiors to their helmets:
The outer shell will be the same, but the interior padding and protective qualities are different


Bern Hard Hat uses an ABS hard shell and an interior foam called Brock Foam. Brock Foam is a soft, very comfortable foam that is rated as a multiple impact foam. When an impact occurs on a Brock pad, each bead moves the adjacent two beads laterally which diffuses the impact. Friction between the beads turns much of the force into kinetic energy. Multiply this by the thousands of beads in each pad and you have the essence of why Brock absorbs impact better than standard foam pads. It is made up of a polypropylene bead that offers a firm protective layer and has excellent moisture and heat wicking properties.
Brock foam is not certified ASTM or CE for snow or Bike. The helmet is still a great helmet, but you do need to be aware of this fact.



The Bern EPS uses the same ABS hard shell but has a more traditional EPS Foam interior. The EPS version is certified for Bike, Snow and Skate. Because of the Bern Shell design, this helmet is still very comfortable. The EPS version like all other EPS Helmets is rated as a single impact helmet and should be replaced after any major impacts.



The Bern Zip-Mold is what other companies will often call an in-mold helmet. The Bern Zip-Mold is similar in build to an EPS helmet except the outer shell and inner shell are combined into one during the manufacturing process. This allows for a better strength to weight ratio and gives the helmet a lower profile without losing its protective qualities.

Bern Unlimited Hard Hat / EPS / Zip-Mold Helmet Interiors / Bottom Line:

All three versions of Bern helmet interiors will perform and look great. But if you want to make sure that your helmet has been certified to US and world impact standards then the EPS or Zip-Mold versions are the option you should choose. We were also surprised at the comfort level of the EPS. Typically an EPS helmet will not be as comfortable as other other interior version such as the Brock Foam Hard Hat. This is testament to Bern's helmet designs. It is also important to understand that the EPS is a single impact rated helmet and will need to be replaced after any major impact. The other downside to the EPS is that it is only available in S-XL. If you need a larger size you will need to move into the Hard Hat version.
