    full face DOT helmet?

    I'm starting my search for a DOT full face, was hoping to get some suggestions. I don't want to go any higher than $300.

    Chainlove has had the 661 Fenix helmets up periodically.. $120-140 range
    really nice helmets, especially for that price.

    The 661 Flight is also an excellent DOT helmet

    Check out the new fly f2 carbons. Coming from m2r's for years and the last few years a thor force it's the nicest helmet I've had yet. Light, breathes well, and fits snug around your face but not too the point where its uncomfortable.

    For the money the 661 Fenix from Pricepoint can't be beat!

    I picked up my Fox V3 Latinese for $200 on closeout, I'd wager that the quality is nicer than my friends D3.

    Check out Kali helmets. I picked up a DOT approved Kali Mantra for $120. They have some rad designs too.

    I have the 661 flight helmet I bought off of Chainlove for $60. It fits really nice/comfortable, not to heavy, and looks pretty cool. It is DOT and SNELL approved. (SNELL Is a more stringent testing)

    I had a Rockgardn Blacklite last year which was a nice helmet.

    Thinking about going away from a DOT this year and back to something a bit lighter. D3 will be nice Kali Avatars are much more reasonable price wise..

    Using the "Update Cart" tool seems to apply the discount...

    It's your head dude, go to a moto shop and try them on. Pick the one that fits BEST. It should be a little tight because it will pack out.

    I'm not saying you have to buy it from that shop (that would be the nice thing to do since you used their inventory to size your melon) but you will know what works.
    You have just been mentally Rick Roll'd. Yup you're thinking about it right now aren't you? Don't fight it.

    Or just look at rocky mountain ATV. They have dozens of perfectly good DOT helmets for cheap.
