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!

Ruroc RG1-X helmet review

[QUOTE=Jet;549554]This is exactly what I hoped for before I got my Ruroc and unfortunately even now there is very little user feedback to be found on the Internet. So I thought I'd start off my contribution to this forum with my thoughts on the Ruroc.

Hi guys I just spotted this forum looking for feedback on the Ruroc lids. I reviewed one in detail last year and though you might find my comments helpful.

I only wore it for a few days as I found it wasn't very comfy. This was mainly because I have a large neck and the helmet base comes down low and is too small for my neck - thus making it uncomfortable and even limiting my head movement by about 5 degrees (not good). I also didn't get on with the facemask, too fiddly to put on and needed to be put on after your goggles which was annoying. It is also too big to put in a pocket.

You can read my full Ruroc RG1-X helmet review here - I go into 1500 words worth of detail.

Whether you wear a helmet or not, or think the Ruroc helmets look awesome or look awful is a personal preference. But they provide additional protection compared to other helmets. They are also doing something different that may encourage more people to wear a helmet. So for innovation sake I respect them even if I personally didn't like the helmet.

If you never fall you are not trying hard enough.

ok so my gripe with this post is the fact that rurocs can fog up like mofos sometimes. They can and do fog if you arent extremely careful.

Only time I have ever had my Ruroc fog up is when I pulled a balaclava/bandanna type thing up under the mask so that my breath was shooting straight up into the goggles all day. Other than that and the fact that it can be a little hot, I've had no issues.
