    Full face helmet help

    I'm looking into getting my first full face helmet, so that i have adequate protection so i can go ride at more rougher trails. I probably wont be riding at these places as often because they're all such a long drive, so i don't want to spend a great deal on the helmet. In my search however, i have found a nice helmet i really like, for a decent price too...

    It's the SixSixOne Comp II which i think only came out recently. (Here's a better picture of it). Because it came out recently though, it's hard to find any feedback on it. It's predecessor has pretty good reviews, but i don't know how well this can reflect the reliability of this helmet. Can anyone comment or advise me on this helmet?

    Also which color you think looks better: black or black/white?

    Forget looks. If I were buying one, I'd worry more about heat... so I'd get white as it will reflect radiant energy whereas black will absorb it.

    In the same position as you and just bought the Oneal Fury pretty cheap ($59 on jensonusa.com) and happy with it. Rode with it a couple times now and comfortable. Definitely a big differnece while climbing, harder to breathe, but good visibility and good piece of mind.

    I'm trying to decide between the Giro Remedy and Specialized Deviant myself. I really liked everything about the deviant except that the top of the head was somewhat uncomfortable, anyone else notice that or find a way to solve that issue? I like the helmet overall more than the remedy except for that and that might be enough to point me towards the remedy.

    The top of the head seemed really uncomfy on the deviant though... Anyone else notice that?
