    retirein the protec... what helmet next?

    i do trails and fr and hopefully soem DH this year!

    i dont think i will ever do anything too big like u guys are doin, most likely 10 feet will eb the limit, eah so i need a new lid any suggestion? i want a full face but they look really hot and whn i ride its like 30 degrees outside atleast...so havein an xc helmet on was great cuz of all that ventalation! but i also have had a shizzle load of oral sergery and orthodontist **** in the last 5 years (wisdom teeth, braces etc) so i want to protect my parents insurance's investment!

    thanks fellas, and i know oher people haev asked similar questions, but meh i too lazy to search

    isn't that pretty cold? oh nevermind your on celsius so that's like 85 degrees F. I would go with a mad max or a lot of people like those 661 bravo or full bravo whatever they are called. i saw one and they are pretty light.

    yeah, plus the switchblade gets a lot of mixed reviews here, I have a 661 full bravo 2, and I actually wanted a mad max, but found that the 661 fit better. I suggest you call around and try to find some shops with helmets that you have been considering and see what feels the best. Also, I have found that the ff is not TOO hot while riding, just go faster to make up for it .

    later

    I think that's really expensive. That helmet isn't too great either. the chin thing seems to stick out farther than a motocross helmet. also if you fell on the chin thing it seems like it would break, those things are made out of thin plastic. it wouldn't offer much more protection than your shell. i would say to get the 661, everybody seems to think those are pretty cool and not too expensive. good luck.

    dont get a switch blade man they no longer have a production line (they were retired coz they had many problems with them)...get like a mad max or a full bravo...there cheap and bloody good...the full bravo is lighter and has more ventalation (a very light and well ventilated helmet) but the mad max looks better and is stronger and has more padding (would rather be wearing this when i stack than the full bravo)...

    just remember its ur head man...dont sell ur head short....
