    New helmet?

    Hey, I've only posted on this site a few times but I've always gotten the best info.

    So this time I am looking for opinions on my next helmet. I cracked mine after a face plant on a recent ride and need to get a new one. I am looking for something that's light enough and breathes alot to do XC riding with, but can also withstand the abuse of FR'ing.

    Thinking about the Azonic Fury...?

    I looked into it a bit also. I can't find it online for sale anywhere tho, Spec's site is outta the size/color combo I need.

    I like the 661 BRAVO XC myself. Not that I wear one, I have a cheap Bell.
    I seem to go through too many to fork out big $ on one. I don't know how much better the expensive helmets are really anyway?
    Makes me wonder....... am I a bad rider or just a little crazy, or both, LOL

    I'm making some helmet decisions right now as well. For a while I was sure that the Deviant was the best option, then I started looking at the sixsixone 2006 Pro Bravo, it doesn't come out till the 15th, but it looks cool. Either helmet will be lightweight and ventilated, so I'd say choose between those two.

    I like the idea of the "light full-face" helmets like MET ParaChute, I think Giro and somebody else has had similar designs. They are just pretty rare and it is hard to find one that you can try on.
