- Full face for warm ears commuting in winter?
Riding in to work on Monday, it was kind of chilly, so I made one of those mental notes to find my skull cap. But then I remembered is just been bought a shiny new full face lid for my birthday. Which would be lovely and warm for the winter commute. But here’s the problem: would I look like an utter bell end on a flat bar 700c with mudguards wearing a bright yellow full facer? With goggles! Think I know the answer…Posted 4 years ago
Pretty much what I expected then… Gotta admit they make sense though. Huge peak to keep the rain off your face, few vents to keep the rain off your head, bit more protection when Captain smidsy has dark and rain to contend with… Perhaps it’s like bum bags or bib shorts – makes sense, but I ain’t wearing them!Posted 4 years ago
@glasgowdan, hadn’t considered the visibility thing when riding through the woods, but trees don’t pull out and run into you. Though that would explain some of my crashes… So I’ve just tried the lid on, and without goggles, it’s pretty much the same as an open face. Apart from the chin strap obscuring the bars. With Oakley MX googles on, I reckon I lose about 2 degrees each side. Noise didn’t seem too different, perhaps a bit less directional, maybe offset by less wind noise from my immense speed 😉Posted 4 years ago
