    Any US Full Face XC helmets?

    I use a full face Pryme AL when freeriding, but even though I love that helmet, it can be just a little much when riding trail or cross stuntry. I have found about the Met Parachute, and the Casco Viper, but those seem to only be available in Europe. Is anything available stateside that has just a little more face protection than a standard XC tpe helmet? Thanks

    Not that I have found, and I have searched. So I purchased a MET Parachute many years ago from an e-bay retailer (in GB). Since my current helmet is getting old, and in case I actually crash on it, I just purchased a second one from another e-bay retailer out of GB. They are very expensive, and do not seem to warrant the price. But they are the only XC FF helmet that I have found.

    And they are a XC helmet for XC (or a little more intense) riding. They are not for FR or DH. When you have one in your hand, you see that it is a XC helmet with extra parts. One hit from a crash, and you should throw it away like you should for a regular XC lid.

    I find that e-bay is the best place to get one--still expensive, but not as much as CRC or Wiggle (for example).

    Cratoni Shakedown.. Not a proper DH full-face, but some added protection is there. My daughter has Cratoni C-maniac.

    Its some really minimal chin guard. It actually flexes. But should provide some additional protection for your dental work.

    Just buy from chainreactioncycles. I get stuff from them in California faster than from many online shops on the east coast.

    I wear the 661 comp shifted, just because I end up with a whipped face and neck. It really is a good helmet but I would like some more vents it just gets so damn hot.
