- Which Full Face “lite” Helmet?
I’ve had a full face helmet before but stopped using it as it was blisteringly hot (Troy Lee D2 something or other).
I’ve spotted a few of the more airy looking ones at reduced prices but was wondering if they really are as versatile as marketed when doing a mix of riding and grinding out a few long climbs along the way?
Any experiences / recommendations?Posted 2 months agorossburtonSubscriber
Related, is the Bell Super still the go-to for convertible helmets? I only need a full-face a few times a year but can’t decide whether to get a new convertible to be the One True Helmet (and have the advantage of being able to carry the chin bar), or spend the same on a Proframe for the occasional full-face use.Posted 2 months agodai3015Member
I’ve just bought a uvex jakkyl convertible helmet. It’s my first full face lid and have to say that I’m very impressed with the weight and ventilation whilst wearing with the chinguard, not much (if any ) hotter than the bluegrass goldeneyes trail helmet I had beforePosted 2 months ago1timmy1Subscriber
I had been going back and forth between the Bell Super DH and the Troy Lee Stage, when I saw the price on Merlin that made my decision. It is very light for a full face even though it Mets DH certification. It won’t be as protective as a full fat full face but looks to be spot on for enduro type riding.Posted 2 months ago
