    TLD is the only way to go


    Super light and breezy. A tad on the expensive side though.

    Id definitley have to say TLD D2 would be my first choice. If not then a giro remedy or a 661.

    TLD D2



    Like other post said, it's very light and expensive ($330). Nice fit and nice finish/graphics. Not DOT/Snell approved though.

    I disagree, it's not the only way to go... it is my fav tho . Love my D2 Carbon (to be really honest the extra cost for the carbon is just as much about style as performance - far from essential).

    Bodhi3, looks awesome.

    The new CG edition bell looks sweet as well ...and I've always liked Giro's.

    The good news is that there's plenty of choice!

    The Giro Remedy is the best helmet I have had. I like it over the TroyLee. Other helmets I have had are the older Bell Bellistic and an O'Neal Titan. The big plus with the Remedy is its right at $100 or less.

    Good luck man,

    I just got the SixSixOne Full comp helmet yesterday and i love it. I reccomend this if you dont want to spend a lot of money. I got it for $55 with free shipping. The designs are really cool and it feels like a real solid helmet. There is a pic of it in red online somewhere and it looks like a gross orange, but in person its actually red and looks really sweet.

    Troy Lee D2

    Another vote for the TL D2. You'll have a very hard time finding one that fits better with that kind of ventilation and lightweight - very well made and worth every penny. And they do make DOT approved versions too if you're really aggro but they're a lot heavier.

    Have FUN!

    This is the lid I picked up for about $100. Fits like a glove and lots of vents for cooling.

    For the most part it's decent. It's got a few problems though. The fit feels loose no matter what. I managed to compensate with some padding that I jacked from my skate lid. The chin strap is too far back, it digs into my neck. The helmet moves too much up and down, it'll rotate back far enough to expose your chin. My visor always wants to move down. The jaw piece is kind of flimsy, and it protrudes pretty far. It is one of the cooler (temperature-wise) FF helmets though.

    Deviant and Remedy CF

    I have the Deviant and the Giro Remedy CF. Deviant is more for aggresive trail riding/XC and the Remedy is my DH helmet.

    I bought a TL Razor carbon to find it was to small and it was the biggest they did. I thought i must have a block head or something!. But i then had company that my dad dealt with in Italy give me (birthday) a Dainese D Fiber in a medium and it fits Great! I wore it once and took the biggest slam in my riding years and KO'ed my self and split my front teeth. I can't imagine if i hadn't been wearing it. They definately do what they should. There also nice and light considering its not carbon.
