OSBE helmets

I tried a few of these on at Christy Sports in Vail. Never heard of them before, but the helmet was very comfortable and I loved the visor instead of goggles concept - no pressure on my nose, and therefore no restriction in breathing.

I'd love to hear from anyone who's actually used one.

Saw an asian lady at Big White who could barely stand on skiis wearing this contraption.

Do I need to say more?
I rode with someone who had one of these. Apparently they are glasses friendly?

Absolutely serious.:thumbsup:

Not the one in your first picture mind you, but the second one (Proton model), or the United model.

I tried the Proton model on - very comfortable. Great vision parameters, and no pressure on the nose, as I said. Less claustrophobic than wearing goggles. Hasn't the trend in goggles been to bigger lenses lately?
I asked a guy at A-basin who had an OSBE helmet about it. He loves it.

As for the Asian woman who couldn't stand up on her skis: you really think a helmet and visor that is more open than a helmet and goggles was the problem?
I don't.

Banjo, your reaction reminds me of skiers reacting to snowboards appearing at snow resorts. You don't have to like these things, but keep an open might be wearing one some day!:giggle:
