    Bell Sanction

    I have my standard XC lid for the normal stuff, I have a 661 fullface when I go the park (I ride an Intense 5.5 so I'm not doing some massive hucking mind you) but I am looking for light weight, well ventilated fullface for the more all mountain riding. I'm looking to protect the teeth when I push a bit harder....or in that case, push to hard (so to speak). I had a close call this past season on a standard route which is the reason for the desire for some additional protection. My 661 is a few years old, a bit heavy for all mountain and HOT!
    I looked at the deviant 2 but it doesn't fit my head. It did have some good recommendations though: Deviant 2
    So now I am off looking at the Bell Sanction. No reviews yet as it appears pretty new. Anybody have any experience? Or does anybody have any other suggestions that fit the bill?
    Thanks

    thanks for the lead. After finding the deviant didn't fit well, i tried on a Bell Drop they had in the store: nice fit. When I got home, I went straight to Bells website and they only have the Sanction and the Drop. Looks like the Bellistic is a closeout from 2009. Good prices, weight looks good, 15 vents...thanks for the lead
