    Crash broke my Uvex. So: 661 Recon vs. Giro Hex vs. something else?
    First off, my Uvex performed admirably. Crashed right onto my face. (caught a rock on the other side of rolling down a bigger rock, and endoed). The Visor folded into my face and I still look like a move star. The helmet broke right in the middle of the forehead area.

    So, I need a new helmet.

    Advice please???


    Liked the Uvex XP a lot.

    Have a 661 full face that I really like.

    Had a Fox Flux, not so much.

    Tried on Poc, felt awkward, didn't ride.

    And truthfully, I may be a candidate for a cross country full face. I have had three decent crashes lately. Two mechanical and one stupid.

    Lurking in the background are all of the pending announcements from Interbike.
