Full Face Helmets, ever wear one?

I wear one on the track, and occasionally at the Park. Anybody rock a Full Face Helmet?

Re: Full Face Helmets, ever wear one?

When I'm at the track, absolutely. Seen too many vids of guys blowing their faces out. But usually just my TSG brain bucket if I'm going to do some work in the park. A lot lighter and then I don't have to Febreeze my helmet before race day. Still, if you're going to race, full face is the only way to fly.

Re: Full Face Helmets, ever wear one?

I crashed last year and was so glad for my full face helmet. I went over my bars head first into a rock face. It wasnt a very hard impact and I wasnt going that fast, but if I wasn't wearing it I would have been a whole lot uglier. Pretty sure i would have shattered my jaw and lost all my chiclets...

Re: Full Face Helmets, ever wear one?

Always did.   Now I am a ski racer and I am the only guy with a full face.  Broke me front teeth when I was a kid due to a crash on my bike, so now anything that needs a helmet I wear a full face.  My avatar is the visor from my old BMX-2 Monarch full face.

Am thinking of buying a new JT Racing helmet if I decide to start freestyling again.

Re: Full Face Helmets, ever wear one?

I always wear a full face helmet to ensure my safety. There are a number of full face helmets that are available in the market that you can use for yourself. You may choose some of the trendy full face helmets that are available. Full face helmets not only protect our head but it also protect our face in case of fall or injury....

Re: Full Face Helmets, ever wear one?

I always wear one when I ride park or vert. It's a must and to be honest, I feel a lot safer and more confident with it on. The extra weight and protection is worth saving your head. I haven't worn a skate style helmet ever since.

Re: Full Face Helmets, ever wear one?

Spend the money on a light weight one...Its really worth it after a few hours of riding.


I have no idea were my full face went, but a "skate park" helmet just to wear for now. Going to get a fox full face soon along with some armor.

Re: Full Face Helmets, ever wear one?

I was riding in a bike park last year with just a top cap no full face and took a bar end to face.  Cost me $22,000 took out 13 teeth and cracked a few. Had to get all my teeth taken out and inplants in. Nothing like having bolts in your gums to hold teeth in.

Re: Full Face Helmets, ever wear one?

^^^^
if that post ain't enough for you to get a full face, then you must be rich. Armor up, you have one body..Thank me later.

I look like robocop when I'm in the gate...I don't care.  I get made fun of, but I'm makin mains, so it's all good.

Re: Full Face Helmets, ever wear one?

Only full-face.  Both when on ramps (BMX) and certainly when downhilling.

Used to ride open-face with a mouth-guard back in the '80s, and it took me a while to get used to the restricted visibility of a full-face this time around, but it's worth it.  DO NOT want to have unnecessary dental work.
