    I like my Bell enough for the price... Paid 60 bucks for it on sale at Cycle Gear. Doesn't look like they have the solid ones anymore though... but they do have some on sale for 79 bucks. Can't go wrong with Bell...

    Maybe this link will help you put a lil...

    Got this one and I have no complaints. Super lightweight and feels like your barely wearing anything. Get some Biltwell goggles to ice the cake.

    I love how MX helmets look but I can't get over how it probably feels with the visor. Doesn't that crap pull your head up?

    The visors got a ton of air relief holes/venting in it, I thought the same thing, but I dont feel it pulling til about 90 mph.

    Ive been looking at the same kind of thing, in fact, just got back from running over to Cycle Gear on lunch break. I was looking at an HJC online that looked cool. I'll have to grab the model number but the price was right at $105 and I like HJC helmets, generally.

    Fly Racing makes one called the Trekker that's cool and a couple of CC guys have had good things to say about them. Pretty sure it's www.flyracing.com

    My head gets tossed just as much in my Biltwell as it does in my MX helmet. As long as it fits right, you will be golden. Don't get one that is comfy when you buy it, get one that hurts a little take off and on. It will break in. Pretty much goes for all helmets.

    i've had many mx helmets and by far i like my fox the best, little more expensive but definitely worth it. really good air venting & circulation, light weight and comfortable..night and day between an hjc and fox...think mines a v2 or v3 can't remember but it was around $200 like 3 years ago and it was a left over from the previous year so it was marked down but as most things you get what you pay for...

    Yep. I got mine for around $125, if I remember correctly. It's the only fullface I've worn on the street, but I love it. I rode from San Francisco to Phoenix in a day and was plenty comfortable the whole time. And, it's got a regular shield, so you don't need to wear glasses or goggles, or carry clears with you for night riding.

    Hey Sutton, pretty sure that's the one I was looking at, the CL-6X or something like that. Hey, is the visor removable on it?

    Anybody else remove the visor from their MX lid or have one where the visor is removable?

    Dutch, it may be true that this is trendy but I have begun to see the practical logic behind it. These helmets are lightweight, inexpensive and offer better protection than an open face for obvious reasons. It appears that many of them are now DOT and some SNELL approved so they are legal in all states. They retain the open eye hole so that you can choose whether to use goggles or not and what kind and they still offer great ventilation for those of us who live in hot weather states.

    Seems very practical to me. Perhaps Ill buy one to wear with my Vans, Mechanix Gloves, flannel shirt and chain wallet. That combo will look great on my late model Sportster! Did I mention my flaked paint job?
