    Removable face guard?

    Hi all, when I was travelling last month I met a UK guy who showed me a photo of a helmet with a removable faceguard that he had gotten for his GF. I can't remember what it was called, and am wondering if they are available in the US. Anyone?

    Thanks.

    The older MET Parachute also had a removable chin bar.

    I've seen a good crash with that style helmet, may as well have been an open face

    +1 in 2015 they went to a fixed chin guard.


    I would say that for 2016, we'll see more of the enduro helmets come with chinguards simply based on the popularity of the Super 2R.

    I got a Met Parabellum, and I'm kicking myself for not getting the Super 2R for those days when I do more aggressive rides.
