    New to mtbr and mtb in general

    Just picked up a used 2013 Enduro Expert Evo for a great price. My background is in MX/desert riding and Road Racing on motorcycles. I decided to get into MTB as a fun way to stay in shape over the winter. The way I see it, they are kinda the same sport on a continuum. MTB-MX-RR. A lot of other racers ride road cycles for training, but... I need more stupidity in my hobbies.

    I guess I'm going to need some kneepads and a helmet with a higher stupidity capacity.

    Looks like I can get injured in this sport. Rad.

    edit - forgot my question:

    What type of helmet is well-suited to AM/Enduro riding?

    If you're going to be out in the desert don't get a black one.

    The AM/Enduro kind of helmet
    Urge archi enduro.

    If you don't plan on any kind of faceplanting move then the regular mtb helmet would do

    Sage advice. I'll mostly be riding in NW Washington where an electrically heated wool-lined helmet could be handy at times.
