Default Got a cool helmet idea!

I'm a big hockey fan and love snowboarding. I think the visors the pros wear look sick. So I was thinking about getting one of these and tinting it blue and mounting it on my snowboard helmet. What do you think?

That doesn't really sound like it would keep the wind out of your eyes...

Looks good in theory. But i think that the wind will get in underneath the bottom of the lense. How you can over come that, is to wear a plastic shopping bag over your head but under your helmet. That should take care of the wind.

an idea but it would suck cuz you have a lot of area around the "face shielf" that snow or wind could come in, it would be like wearing sunglasses but farther from your face so you get more wind. I suggest you should just get next years VZ fishbowls cuz they are all lense, a big ass lense on your face, scince your a fan of VZ.

But go for it,

we sold a helmet like that in our shop this year, made by bolle I think. Never did get any feedback from folks but my guess is that it doesn't do a super job on cuttind down wind

Not just wind, but sun reflection off of the snow as well.

Default visor-style lids

As you can probably guess from my name I know a bit about these helmets, but you if you're after a pretty sweet lid you should defo check them out... Ruroc: Extreme Snow Sports Protection ? The Ultimate Integrated Helmet For Alpine Sports.

Cheers,
Chris.
