These are so god damn ridiculous. They aren't providing extra protection over a normal helmet, you just look like you're playing Star Wars dress up. Thankfully this fad appears to be dying rapidly. Prepare to be snickered at all over the mountain.

didn't want to be the first dickhead chime in (Thanks JTG) but your grandparent dodged shrapnel and bullets in WWII and played tackle football without full face helmets. You guys will be fine without one as well. They look ridiculously stupid.

IMO they don't look as gay as a normal helmet.

I tried one the beginning of last year, or year before.

I got it because I will ride in stormy weather and needed better protection from the snow and wind than everything else I've tried.

It did block the snow, sleet, and wind.

But I only used the helmet a few times. Too heavy and I had problems with goggle fog. So I don't, and haven't used it since.

Besides, IF there's anyone out riding in conditions where the full face helmet is needed, they are miserable from what they have going on not working. See it all the time.



I tried about everything on the market and nothing performed to my liking.

So I made several different face shield / masks until I finally came up with something that wasn't heavy, worked good enough, and the parts I used are 1/4 of what the Ruroc costs.

Show some bizalls and put function over fashion!
