    Anyone Running a Fox Dropframe Helmet?

    Curious how you like it or not.

    I can't speak to the Dropframe specifically, but I like 3/4 helmets in general for non-XC non-super hot riding (and the Dropframe seems better ventilated than my helmet).

    They look so badass. If I hadn't purchased a TLD A2 on deep discount a week prior to the release of the Dropframe I'd probably own one right now.

    I went ahead and bought a Drop Frame anyway because I just couldn’t help myself. I want to love it but there are these elevated ridges or spines that fall right against my temples. They clamp down on my head like I’m in a torture device. If I were to crash onto the side of my head the ridges feel like they’d punch a hole into my skull.

    On the plus side the helmet plays well with goggles. Seamless fit with Smiths.

    I thought the helmet was great, but sadly had to send it back.
    There was a pressure point right in the middle of my forehead with this helmet.
    I am about 59cm, so I had their XL size.
    Overall great helmet, but looks like for this one, it does not fit my head correctly.
    I ended up keeping the switchblade. For my condition, I like the added confidence of more protection, which is why I like these open face helmets.
