    Full Face Helmet w/ best visibility

    Hey everyone I am wondering what of all the full face helmets out there has the best or better than some of the others in terms of visibility specifically on the low side. I have never been a fan of them but I will be doing park riding this summer for the first time ever and my co worker is telling me that I must get one. The thing I dont like about them is that the part of the helmet that covers your mouth blocks seeing the front of your tire and that makes me uncomfortable so I'm looking for one that is a bit shorter in that spot. I can pretty much get any brand I need so money is not an issue just want some good recommendations. Thanks.

    I can tell you that the THE helmets ride really close to your jaw... I'm not going to pretend that little extra visibility matters at all though.

    If you're riding anything that demands wearing a full face, you probably shouldn't be looking at your front wheel, you should be looking ahead on the trail.

    This. You will be looking way forward. You don't drive your car at 80 mph looking at the road in front of your bumper? Same thing with riding fast.
