    I have a 661 skate type helmet. I'd trust that thing in the park, etc.

    use your best judgment according to how much risk you take and how much comfort you want.
    Safety : MX FF>MTB FF>Bmx/Skate> XC

    Comfort/cooling would be the direct inverse IMO
    Honestly... ahh I give up

    I am in the same situation. Just returned a Specialied Max. Didn't feel right. I am thinking about checking out the Giro Phase and I am stopping on my way home at the LBS to see what they have. Good luck.

    just get a helmet that fits. dont dwell too much on what "type" it is. it sounds like youd be fine in an xc/ skate helmet.

    Skate helmets (as in the Pro-tec style, hard shell/fabric foam construction) provide lower crash protection than an XC helmet. Though most of the companies producing the classic style skate helmet are now making a EPS foam version of their helmets to meet CE/CPSC certification standards (ex: Pro-Tec Classic). Any helmet is better than no helmet though, and any helmet will work for what you want to do. I would get a XC helmet with good back of the head coverage like the Giro Xen. Fit is the most important part of any helmet, so don't just buy something on the internet if you've never tried one on.
    Don't you hate it when a sentence doesn't end the way you think it octopus?

    I have a Giro Venti... amd it's fine, but I think I would prefer a helmet like this... I only do single track stuff at the moment
