Eating shit on a bike off a 10ft. drop or 30ft. double into hard packed dirt, roots, rocks, trees, etc.. is very different than falling on snow (even ice) not to mention the addition of a 40lb. bike falling onto/into you. I've gotten way more injuries and scars in 4yrs of FR/DH mtbiking than I have in 20yrs of snowsports.

DH mtb is full-face helmet worthy and worthy of how ever many pads a person can fit onto themselves. Wearing a full face helmet for snowboarding is what a complete pussy would do on their most effeminate day.

why would any of you try to discourage a fellow boarder from protecting him self better from injury. I say if you want to wear a full face helmet, go for it.

More protection is always good if it gives you more confidence while on the slopes.

To save them the embarrassment of looking like a kook. Whether you want to wear a lot of protective gear or not is something for another discussion. But for fuck's sake don't wear a full face helmet.

For the record, I won't be wearing a full face on the board. But.. I won't be laughing if someone else chooses to do so.

I think there's a consensus here, and with that, I'm out...

whatever Rambo...

I wear a spine protector and a neck brace nowdays...that make me a pussy as well?

after boarding for well over 25 years (I had to make my first board as back then nobody sold them) I've landed hard and fast too often and now have a weak spot in my upper spine.
So its a ski helmet and a neck brace or no more boarding...I'm not prepared to give away my sport but sure ain't ready for a wheelchair

And what I wear is after considerable discussion and analysis with a top neurosurgen who deals with sports trauma and I bet he knows a lot more about sustaining head and spine injuries than most of the armchair experts posting shit like the stuff I read here.

Wear whatever you want and if people don't like it they better learn to live with it...

Your goggles are going to fog up like crazy with a full face on, the end.

I have Giro Remedy and Crowbars and I can tell you my peripheral vision is limited by the goggle itself and not by the helmet (I only see a tiny bit of the helmet nose trough the goggles). Also, the goggles don't fog up at all with it.

I just wanted to clear some myths some of the guys are spreading about full face helmets.
