I wear a cheap Bell. When standing at the wall of helmets at the LBS I asked the guy, "What's the difference?". And surprisingly enough he said, "None. The $30 one down here does the exact same thing the $200 up there does. They're all rated to the same safety standard.". So I say, go cheap.

I rode a cheap bell for years. Just this summer I splurged on a Giro (ionos). While both protect my noodle the same the air flow through the Giro is much better...was a big win for me over the summer but now I more frequently wear a head warmer

I would suggest a mid price Bell or Trek. They will do as much to protect your head as a $150/$200 helmet unless you want the sleek in style look or need super air flow with less weight. I currently wear a Specialized Propero that cost about $125. I won't spend that much again.
Just my 2 cents worth....

I think you will get the best price if you buy on line. Some things to check before ordering.

Size, (some helmets fit round heads, some are designed for oblong shaped heads) go to a local bike shop and try some on first.

Check the sellers return policy in case the one you rec. doesn't work for you.

I would order one with a removable visor, most Rodie's don't wear a visor but it might be good to have it. Most of them just clip on.
