So, what do you guys like to wear for a helmet. I use a full face now. BUt I'm thinking about converting to a open face helmet, with some goggles. I just hear they are better to wear. And I want to try something new.
I went to an open face snocross style with goggles this year and love it. It is lighter on your head, gives you more side vision, and the only time I have had fogging problems is when I stop and it is very slight fog. I kept my modular helmet to wear if it gets real real cold out since i have not had a chance to test my open face in really cold conditions.
I use a Troy Lee D2 open face with googles.I just prefer this over a closed face thats all.Have not had problems with fogging unless at a stanstill for a while.When its cold I were a mask that covers my lower face.Plus I have duc-taped the front vents shut.
I use a full face now, but will be trying that new dual purpose lid next year. Combo, open face that converts to a full face for them cold days. Speaking of Combos, some McDonalds would be yummy right about now

Is that a real carbon fiber helmet? Where did you get it? I really like the style of it. What is the typical amount you spend on a open face? Thanks a lot guys.
I wear a full face helmet, but always ride with the shield up with sunglasses on 90% of the time, unless its really cold out, I like the fresh air.....I've thought about the open face with goggles but I was concerned about fogging, I guess today's goggles are pretty good, so maybe it would be worth a try??
To 02MXZ600, yes its real carbon fiber.The helmet is super light but is not intended for motorized usage.Its geared towards Downhill mountain bikers & such but you cant tell me those guys dont go fast & may hit hard objects like trees.
I wear a HJC sno cross helmet with Smith Warp goggles. I used a pair of Oakley motocross goggles part of last year, big mistake. You need to buy a good pair of double lensed snow goggles or they will fog up and freeze.
I use Arctic Cat TXi fullface, has removable visor,and gasket that goes around nose/eyes to prevent fogging. I've tried Bombardier modular, but didn't like the way rubber mask fit,found it too restrictive.
Helmets!!?? You guys wear helmets?? No thanks, Just a fur bomber cap and sunglasses for me....
When I actually get out of the house, I usually wear a snowcross style with goggles, though. I still have my full face helmet for those really cold days, but have not used it yet this year... I like wearing my MX style helmet 10 times more than the full face.. better visibility, lighter feeling.. and with the proper headwear and the front vent duct taped, it is pretty warm, too... Also it fogs up a little when I have been stopped for a while, but what helmet doesn't?? My full face helmet was way worse for fogging, and my goggles only take about 10 seconds of riding to clear up... cant say that for a face shield.
