    I have a bell super 2r. Removable chin piece. I think MET has something similar.

    There are a lot of solid ones - Bell, Kali, SixSixOne are the first ones to come to mind.
    Any new hemlet with proper certification is going to be great, the more expensive ones just achieve the same protection at a lighter weight with sometimes more ventilation, but the more affordable ones are still excellent.

    I just picked up the Bell Super 2R as well and I can recommend. It's great for having two helmets in one!

    I've got a MET Parachute, I can highly recommend. The faceguard is not removable, but is burlier than the Bell. Not that the Bell is a poor choice, just a FYI.

    Link to a current Parachute thread...

    The Helmets with a removable chin guard are not rated for downhill. They are good for all mountain \ enduro..If the O.P. is looking for a helmet for a bike park or real d.h. trails these are not a good choice.

    The Thor MX Quadrant helmets are only $160 USD, a bit over your budget at 100 GBP but I think they're good.

    A lot of people will say that MX helmets and MTB helmets are different and designed for different uses and MX helmets are for "higher speed" but TBH I don't think they're really all that different. They both protect your head from a crash and reduce the impact of hits to your head. The O'neal and LS2 MX helmets are probably also in the same price range.

    I personally use the Fly Racing Three.4 helmet for MX/Dual Sport stuff and a bit when I'm doing DH MTB. For AM and XC racing I use the Giro Xar "3/4" helmet.
