Its funny you posted this thread as I had the same dilemma as you. I had a pneumo and despite the 'sleek' claims, the thing looked like I had a mixing bowl on my head. Just yesterday I went down to the LBS and tried on all the helmets you have listed. I ended up buying the Rudy. In all honesty, the helmet is awesome. The profile is slim, it fits well, and is $80 cheaper than the atmos. I could have afforded the atmos no problem, but I liked the look of the Rudy better. I just didnt see the value of spending the money for the atmos. The retention system on the rudy is better imo, because its a single knob that you crank. I went out for a ride last night and venting was just as good as the pneumo. I am very happy with my purchase. Good luck.
