    Help me Pick A full Face Helmet

    I recently had jaw surgery and I am ready to get back on the bike, with a little extra insurance. I mainly am a cross-country enduro rider so I am looking for a full face helmet that isn't too heavy and will vent as much as possible. I don't want to spend an arm and a leg on it, but I would like something that has a removeable washable liner. I thought a giro switchblade would be a good choice but they aren't really around anymore, and the mad max is probably too small, I wear a large giro bike helmet and ski helmet, but I may be wrong. I was looking at something others and would like some feedback on the Azonic T-55, Six Six One helmets anything else around or under a 100 bucks

    Thanks

    The MET Parachute is more than $100 and you'd have to import it from the UK, but a lot of people swear by it:

    I was not really looking to spend that much. Has anyone tried the Azonic T-55, 661 helmets, or any of the bells. I read reviews the bellistic wasn't that great.

    Thanks

    I use a Giro Switchblade that, unfortunately, they don't make anymore. I bought mine on ebay, however, and it's been great. I'll warn you. Any full face helmet gets hot.

    I started using one after breaking my cheek in a fall.

    Has anyone used a Prymo AL, can you pull the liner out of that, with 23 vents it seems like it wouldn't be too hot. Also how about a 661 Comp, Sierra trading post has a it for 60 bucks

    I have a Pryme AL that I got before my Switchblade. Fine for the winters, but I can't ride with it in the Texas heat. Even the switchblade just about kills me in the summer. It's a great helmet though. Just really hot.
