    My Skid Lid

    Just thought id post my beloved Protec Bucky Lasek Ace Helmet. It is the most-bada$$ helmet I have ever owned(not Full face). I did the sticker job myself and just added the Dragon stickers today when they came in the mail The helmet weighs in at 357 grams, almost beating my friends XC helmet. It is also the most comfortable helmet i have ever had the pleasure of bestowing upon my dome. For 30 bucks I think this is the best helmet you can buy(non-fullface) and best looking, and it fits all shaped heads.

    Ps. Sorry for the crappy pics, my camera decided to be shitty today.

    Uh...cool...I guess.

    Not a huge fan of stickers...but those skate lids usually have boring paint jobs to begin with.

    to each their own

    i have scars on my left knee because my 661 pads slide to the side of my leg on impact then i proceeded to deflect the rocks with my patella... and i have had issues with the gloves. so those products at least i will not buy again. no idea on their helmets, maybe they kick ass.

    I like it, the stickers give it personality Skate style helmets just look so much better imo. But I guess looks don't matter much when it is there to protect your noggin. I just bought a Giro Flak (08) and love it. Fits perfect.

    The guys at work call me a poser since I got that helmet. But who cares what they think right?

    I am sure those sponsors (?) will replace it when you break it someday (inevitable with helmets, not wishing any harm).

    And by sponsors, I don't meant the corporations, but your job!

    I've had a Protec Ace for over a decade and I freakin love it. Just can't seem to kill the thing. Used it for climbing, paddling, riding, skating etc etc.

    The foam lining is in an advanced state of decomposition and there is duct tape holding one of the chinstraps on but the padding and shell are still going strong.

    I've been rockin' an Pro-Tec Ace Dig. Killer protection and I like th' fullface type visor, it helps when the limbs try to whack you in th' mug.

    While I will concede that skid lids are better than no helmet at all, I don't have a chin like the UFC's Dan Henderson, so it's full face all the way for me.
    Jump it onto something off of something or over something.

    There's more to freeriding than dirt jumps.

    I use the skid lid for xc, urban, and light jumping. FF for everything on the xtreme end of the spectrum.

    I'm thinking that if you took off the stickers then it would be lighter than the XC helmet.
