    Price?

    If price is no object, get a Troy Lee D2 Carbon.

    If you're on a budget, get a Bell Bellistic.

    $338 from go-ride.com, plus you get free Dragon goggles. Troy Lee also makes some heavier helmets for cheaper.

    I would go with a Bell Bellistic. I ride Bell and its the best helmet I have ever worn, its really light has tons of breathability and just won't break!

    The whole top foam part has seperated from the helmet and is only being held in by the little pads around the ear area, and I'm too broke for a new helmet. Life is awesome.

    I saw it a while ago in a fox mag, very cool(and light)...but I don't want a mx helmet. I want a DH bike helmet. Most mtb helmets crumple when you fall on them, making for a longer period of impact time and lowering the force distributed to your head. Where the mx helmet would not.

    I got a D2 and it's an awesome helmet, get one if you can afford it. But in terms of staying cool and breathable, I wore my friends Giro Madmax II, and that thing kept cooler than my D2. Didn't fit as perfect as the D2, but it was comfy enough to ride in and I think he got his for $180 in carbon.

    are you trying to make the claim that a non-MX aproved helmet is safer that a snell or DOT approved helmet?

    At lower speeds, theoretically they are. At higher speeds, such as in most DH races, i want an MX lid on my head.

    for mtb use other than DH or Freeride it may be better but considering this is a DH/FR forum, a moto helmet would be the better option. taking a slow hit in a MX helmet is much better than taking a high speed crash in a mtb helmet. that's why there are so mant pros that use MX helmets.

    I dunno Corbin, mx/moto helmets are designed for a lot higher speed crashes. And sometimes if you impact real hard you want the helmet to crack and with a moto helmet since its designed to uphold its structure over much higher forces then it might do more harm than good in some cases.


    See you in Angelfire.

    if you hit something hard enough to crack a moto helmet (which is what i think you are saying) your head's frikkin gone anyways. they work better for DH and are not designed to crumble.

    i just read in MBA(mountain bike action to the uninformed person) the most pros if not all, are switching over to MX approved helmets because of the better protection they offer for DH.

    word, i'll see you and your pimpin gold ride there.

    Heres the deal. When you hit your head, your brain comes to a sudden stop on the side of your skull. The point of a helmet is to absorb that impact so your brain doesent come to that same abrupt stop. Therefor, mx helmets are meant for high speed crashes, so if you fall at low speeds the helmet will not crumple and therefor it is not providing the safety of a low speed crash that a mtb helmet would. From that, pick your poison...

    You do understand that you can have a high speed impact at relatively low travel speeds? I'll take a minor concussion over death anyday.

    Exactly what I was trying to say. If you're riding through a rock garden and suddenly crash, if you're wearing a MX helmet then it may or may not craack. I mean, while it will protect your head your head is still taking A LOT of the blunt force because of its rigidity, whereas if you are wearing a mountain bike helmet they're more pliable and it might crack in the impact. That is how it absorbs the impact and in so doing protects your head.

    Whos to say an MX helmet is that much more ridig and isn't meant to crash/crush at lower speeds. You know, MX peeps do crash at low speeds and noone complains then.

    Hell if I know... I was mostly referring to the moto type helmets that are DOT approved and all that. I'm just trying to sound smart, sorry if my logic doesn't fit yours Will.

    As someone who wears a moto helmet I feel they are much better than mtb helmets protection wise. They have two main downfalls-weight and size however these are rapidly improving with thew new helmets like the TLD SE and Fox V3. I have never heard of mx helmets actually hurting people in low speed crashes ie. laying down in a corner.
    It is your head and I agree with sherpa on all points

    I'm sure that its probably circumstancial in all cases, so its probably fine to wear a mx helmet in most cases, and in some I'm sure it helps. But there could be some instances where you just fall a certain way and you get screwed having it. Who knows...

    finally there's something i solidly agree with you on.

    see ya at the races.

    red bull: when you race DH you must be going pretty slow to have confidence in that mtb helmet of yours. do you think you could come back and tell me what death is like?

    seriously, if you are a DH racer or FR hucker, get a Moto approved helmet. seriously. it could be the difference. pros don't use equipment that could potentially hurt them if there is another option.

    Then why do so many use D2's? Like i said, pick what you want in a helmet... Mtb helmets can take high speed crashes, FOR A MTB, but on a mx you have a motor under you and your going faster...

    pros aren't given a certain helmet. they are given helmets to choose from. like if they are sponsored by TLD, they could choose either one. nowadays, pors are starting to use teh moto helmets for their better safety for DHing.

    like with my fox sponsorship (and i realize i am no where near pro but this is an example), i was given several helmets to choose from, but chose the V3 because it iis moto approved and safer.

    Really, did you call 661??? They would replace that for free
