    Opinion on Helmet: Azonic Fury or Specialized Deviant?

    Well, I asked the wife for a new helment for Christmas, and I narrowed it down to these 2, I guess. I don't want to spend a lot since we have a 10 month old baby. And, for whatever reason, I want a new helmet even though my Bellistic is only about 5 months old. Tell me what you guys think.

    I'd go with the Deviant, they look cool, are well ventilated, and fairly light as well. There was just a big thread about the deviant, I'd search for it. Might find some good info there.

    I'm really surprised how many people on this board like the Deviant. I was a *huge* Specialized fan with four Spec bikes, but couldn't bring myself to buy this helmet after actually seeing it / trying it on. I was really excited to finally see it because I was waiting for a long time for it to come out. The problem I have with it is that I don't believe it is a very safe DH/FR helmet, IMO. The level of protection from this helmet is barely more than a XC helmet, which is basically what it is - with a chin bar. I just suggest trying one out before purchasing. If you don't plan on falling very hard, it might be ok. Just my $0.02.

    This is exactly why you need to spend good money on a good helmet. If the weather is cooler near you get a motocross helmet, far safer than any bike helmet. Do it for your child so they a coherent father. Not one who sustained major brain trauma from falling off a bike.

    I have actually been considering going with a DOT approved MX helmet for the extra protection. As far as heat goes, I don't care. I have been riding motorcycles for years and am used to heat because of protective gear. I used to ride my R6 with a full leather one piece Teknic racing suit on, for normal street riding. People used to always bug me about it untill one day I actually went down at about 50 mph, got tossed about 150 feet down a road, and just got up and walked away, with not even a scratch on me. I was sore as hell, but I walked away. There were other riders who went down that caused me to go down, and they had to get skin grafts because their jeans shredded away. Needless to say, they now ride with full leathers.

    My riding is becoming more aggressive as time goes on, and I just want to make sure that I will be going home every time once I am done riding.

    I was looking at the Sixsixone Launch as a possible DOT approved helmet, and HJC and Bell offer some nice models that are affordable as well. If you guys have any opinions on any DOT helmets, let me know. Thanks for all the input everyone.

    HJC's CL-X4 line of moto helmets are worth looking into. They are very affordable ($100 - 140), both Snell and DOT approved, high quality, and also fit very well.

    I have two and highly recommend them...
