Hi all, looking for some advice on helmets before I pull the trigger.
I currently have a standard triple 8 brain saver (which, can I add, saved my brain recently). I also have an Oakley Mod5 snowboard helmet and it’s very comfortable and fine on the slopes but frankly looks stupid on a board.
I’m considering a TSG Pass but I’m concerned about my awareness while using it, I’ve not really spent much time in my adult life on bikes or needed to use full face helmets for any other application so I’m not sure how much gets taken away with it on. There’s no where local to me that I can test the pass.
Can you still hear traffic well? Do you find the framed vision ever gets in the way at all?
I’ll take some pics of my triple 8 tomorrow, it’s outside in the car atm and I have no pants on. I basically hit a groove in the road on pneumatics from an angle and the board went one way and I went the other, it all happened so fast and before I knew it I was on the ground, got some mean road rash on my elbow, hip and my neck muscles were tender for days. Helmet crunched off the ground on the back, small but deep gouges that would likely have put me in hospital. Now I’m concerned about the front of my face, I’m really pretty.
Any advice welcome please.
