    full face helmets - field of view

    so I'm thinking it's just about time to replace my Giro Remedy I've been using since 2008. There's a buttload of new helmets out there and I'm just beginning my search. To narrow it down, I'd like to consider the aspect of field of view.

    What helmets are known to have excellent field of view?

    I seriously doubt any full face helmet restricts FOV more than any other. That has got to be down there on lists of requirements when shopping for a FF....

    I agree, I have never observed significant differences in the field of view of any of the full face helmets I've used.

    I buy a helmets based on fit, weight/bulkiness, and safety features (pullout cheek pads for removal in case of neck injury, MIPS technology).

    Right, goggles are the limiting factor
