AM Helmet


Recommended Posts

After having a go at a couple jumps this weekend on the AM bike, and watching an epic face bail, it has raised the question that it might be a good idea to look for a lid with more face/rear head protection.


I don't want a DH helmet, but would like jaw protection for that posible fall.


So far i have looked at these:


Met Parachute - looks like the best option for my type of riding.


Specialized Deviant


Urge Archi-Enduro


Any other recommendations?

If you just want rear head protection, the Fox Flux, Specialized Vice and a couple of the Giro helmets all do this pretty well. For full face protection, nothing beats a full face helmet, but climbing in it is going to be hot so maybe the MET is the way to go.


I have thought about taking a full face with attached to my hydration pack so that I can switch helmets at the top of the descents, but I don't think I'm that hardcore yet :thumbup:
