    The fact that you are prone to meet the ground with your face sounds like you should get greater protection rather then cooling, so I would recommend a dirt bike style helmet from a motorcycle shop. Something that fits well and has DOT certification.

    Heres what i got. Oneal Threat 06. No major crashes yet but it feels soooooo much more protective than my carbon 661. A lil heavy and hot but worth the protection. Its only ur head. close to 3 bills and DOT certified.

    Bought a Vigor Vamoose II from Go-Ride.com for $109 I believe. Great light weight and came highly recommended.
