Do skater helmets provide better protection for bike riders than vented bike helmets?

I see a lot of bike riders wearing skater-type helmets (e.g. Bell Faction helmets
). They look hotter than vented bike helmet. (E.g. Giro Prolight
But do they provide better protection in a crash?
Also, is a $200 bike helmet better than a $40 helmet? I'd buy a fancy helmet if I thought it made me safer, but not to save myself 40g weight.
