Best possible head protection
 
So I'm a new snowboarder (2011 season was my first) and I was wondering if anyone had ideas on helmets that could protect the front of my face more (nose specifically.) I was in a severe closed head injury as a child so I have to be safe as possible! Thanks.

Check the Ruroc helmets and Sweet helmets. Both have full face options. I think the Ruroc would be the better option personally though.

The ruroc looks like a great option, super low profile.

Hahaha! Yeah, that's all I could think of too.... x___x
And those Roroc helmets are kinda creepy with those masks, but that definitely looks like it might work... Thanks!

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

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

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.

Yeah I guess that is my issue too. Like that other guy said, they do make the people wearing them look like storm troopers, and I don't want to bring more attention to myself. (Already do that with the falling I do!)
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.)

I just need face protection permanently, I guess. (Doctors told me I cannot afford another head accident like I had.)

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