    fox flux helmet: remove rear "spoiler"?

    my brother recently purchased a fox flux helmet and i have to agree with him, the plastic wing on the back looks a little too aero dynamic.
    any way to remove it without fkn up the helmet?
    he said he tried but couldnt, i seem to remember thinking i could when i saw one at the store. he's 3000 miles away so i cant look at it.

    thanks

    I remember when I bought mine I felt the same way, kinda goofy lookin thing.
    I don't think you can remove it, it's really built into the helmet.
    Good news is that after a while you don't really notice it, & everyone you see on the trail with that helmet, & there's lots, looks the same, ha.

    I like the spoiler. Really, if you ride fast enough it is very functional. Just like the kids with crap-box toyota corolla's with huge spoiler's on the back.

    Ok, here it goes....
    1. Put on helmet
    2. Don't look in the mirror
    3. Ride bike

    Absolutely...once you hit about 90mph the spoiler really helps keep the back tire on the ground. That's why donwhill/freerider guys don't wear helmets like this.

    Haha, all in jest.

    A dremel is your friend, there is no easy/clean way to get it off.

    the spoiler is doing a good job of keeping his back tire on the ground but its starting to strain his neck. an airplane pillow may help with this.

    Last night I found an alternative method to removing the spoiler thingy: crash directly on your head. You may need to repeat several times, unless you're really skillful like me.

    I'm pretty sure the "spoiler" is there if you want to wear goggles. It keeps the strap from sliding around. I tried it works brilliantly

    I took the spoiler off mine when I first got it. Its held on by 3 little pins just like the visor is. Just carefully pull up away from the helmet. You'll be left with 3 little holes though.
