    for me i have the liberty of choosing if i want to use my full face or my skate. if im doing stuff i have hit many times, and im very smooth on i wear my skate helmet. but if its something im sketchy about or first time hitting then i wear my full face. this is more of how comfortable u feel with either helmet on. plus full face gives u more confidence!
    Looking for a 7.87 x 2.25mm shock, any brand any age that runs well!! cheap would be appreciated!

    Def. full face for all DH stuff. I actually wear my DH helmet all the time unless just riding around on the street. I little more heat is worth dealing with when compared to a busted face.

    Full face always - seen too many people wearing their 'cool' skater lids for street/dirt and getting dental work done because of it...

    Full face, always. I've had enough dental work done with out meeting concrete head on to warrant using a ff and possibly requiring more if I didn't use one, in fact I usually go shin/arm guards and ff everytime I ride other then dinking around in the street in front of my house.

    Used to use a skate lid till i had a buddy hug a tree on a DH run. Then when i had the money i opted for the Azonic T-55
    I'm UNIQUE... just like everybody else.

    TLD D2 carbon.
    It's the "bling-liest", and I'm an ugly dork, So the more cool stuff I can pile on my head and hide my face, the better.
    It's lighter than my skate lid anyway.
