    What kind of Downhill Helmet are you guys using?

    -Just wondering what kind of downhill helmets you guys are using ?

    -Are you using motorcycle style with the SNELL/DOT helmet standards or the regular bicycle safety standards?

    I bought T.H.E. T2 Carbon helmet. I received it in the mail and it seems really cheap. I'm sending it back and looking into getting a FLY helmet with the SNELL/DOT safety standards. Anyone using them?

    Thanks

    I bought a Kali Aatma a few years back. Great product for $300. I did a review, you'll find it if you search. Highly recommend it

    havnt used a fly helmet personally but my buddy ran one for snowmobiling and was NOT satisfied. It completely fell apart 1/2 way through the season.

    I have had a few, currently the Kali Prana Carbon DOT feels as light if not lighter than the regular Remedy. The Pads are super comfy, and Kali has the best Customer service.

    I liked the Remedy, but it was stolen, I also Broke one on a bad crash.

    I have had a few others but not liked them as much as the Kali or the Remedy.

    try a bunch on at a LBS and find one that Fits your Head, Fit's the most important part imo.

    I'm looking at picking up the new Bell full 9 when they come out at the end of this month. A little cheaper than the TLD at 400, but I like the features it comes with.
