I hear where you are coming from...

similar issue as after many seasons and a few m/c crashes I have a spur of bone inside my spine that is a bit too close to the cord. Dr. wanted me to give up riding due too "the weak spot in the spine"

I now wear a Uvex wing pro with a chin guard - And an Atlas neck brace...not forgetting a back protector!

Kinda feel like robocop out there...get a few comments but when I tell 'em why, other riders all say its cool I'm still doin' my thing...

wear what you feel safe in and if other boarders don't like it, they better learn to live with it.

happy riding to all

Yeah I agree. I need to find a place a can physically try on the helmet... And I don't like that other goggles wont really fit. You have to buy theirs. Or, that's what I got when I was checking up on it.

My boyfriend told me about the motorcross helmets, but I heard they make you kinda top heavy and make your balance different. (Also do not need help with that.)

At least you don't plan on skiing. Right there you are protecting your noggin more than any helmet ever will

Donutz And I would probably buy a Ruroc if I could just get a chance to see one "in person" first. Unfortunately they seem to be mail-order only, at least around here.

Having seen Slyder's experience with the corrugated pipe, I kind of like the idea of face protection when trying something new.

Donutz I've seen kids with motocross helmets on the hill.

Definitely agree here. And you look like a Stormtrooper with the Ruroc on!

And those Roroc helmets are kinda creepy with those masks, but that definitely looks like it might work... Thanks!
