    Well vented FF Helmets?

    Thinking forward a little towards the summer and wondering what's out there in terms of really well vented Full Face Helmets. I'm currently running a Giro Remedy (which I Love), but it does get kinda hot (read: sweaty) on some of the rides in the summer...especially the ones where i'm doing a good amount of climbing too (I wear a FF on all of my rides).
    So, I was looking for other FF helmets that have more ventilation. Initially was looking at getting a Specialized Deviant, but have heard others reference other well vented FF helmets in other threads without actually naming them. So, what other well vented FF helmets are out there like the Spesh Deviant? Pics if ya got em too. Thanks!

    Hey Alvin, check out the Bell Bellistic. I wear mine on all my rides since my crash last year. It does get warm on those long ass climbs, but any FF is gunna be warm when climbing. btw. hows that little one doin?

    Go try TLD D3 if you are willing to pay the price.

    Man the Remedy is really well ventilated. After years of searching they all are pretty much the same. Keep your remedy...I live in hotter Simi Valley and sport a MX helmet....and it doesn't have that many vents and it is still about the same as a well ventilated Remedy..

    bottom line....when you start to descend it really doesn't matter...at least for me

    Specialized deviant. I have the old one, I like it, its not great if your looking for max protection but neither is the remedy. It is vented very well. The new version looks much better. I will be rockin one this season.

    Deviant is easily the most well ventilated fullface you can buy

    The downside is that it isn't tooo safe....

    I don't have any problems with getting too hot in my D2, it's soooo comfy that it doesn't even matter hahahah

    My TLD D2 carbon is so much lighter and better vented than anything else I've worn. Do a google search for the Smith labeled version and you might find a deal. I paid $165!

    I have taken some pretty nasty diggers waring my deviant and it has done me really well.The main reason I am replacing it with the new version is because I dont think it can take repeated impacts by trees and rocks cause im a tard on two wheels. When I ride something really gnarly I have a DOT. And like I said before the new version is a huge improvement.
