Default Need a new helmet and goggles

I'm in the market for a new helmet. I have a fairly large head. While all the features/adjustable vents are nice, I think they are a bit gimmicky since I don't notice an actual difference in heat/cooling.

I need something light and protective. I was thinking about a sandbox legend. Any input on these? Would likely snag the sandbox goggles as well, but there aren't any reviews on them.


As a side note, stay FAR away from smith helmets. Two concussions and two broken helmets in the past few years.

Better than two brain bleeds. Sounds like the helmets might've done their job!

This would be the case if they were serious falls, however, these should not have caused the shells to crack apart.. Frail materials, the helmets barely even reduced the impact too.

I have a Poc Receptor bug and it is easily my favorite piece of gear I have ever bought and was the only helmet I could find to fit my head. It isn't really too light but it has taken some solid bumps and not taken any damage or hurt me in the slightest.
