Go dual or buy a FullFace helmet? (i’ve already got a moto one)

So im almost done completing my first board and i cant make up my mind on this last part, should i spend the money and go dual 6374’s or buy a TSG Pass and go single 6374? if i go dual i have a motorcycle helmet i can wear but i hear that might not be a good idea considering weight and field of view… so what should i do?

(i cant afford both right now, so what i end up going with is what i’ll have to live with for 3-4 months)

and for reference (or whatever else) this is my motorcycle helmet that i’d be using for the for seeable future if i dont get a tsg: 051915-AGV-AX-8-EVO-Naked-f-633x388

(AGV Evo 8 Naked)

Dual and use the MC helmet until next year :slight_smile:

Go with the helmet. You can always get another motor but you can’t get another head.

What kind of board and how hilly is your area?

depending on your skills and if you have ever skated you can get a brain bucket type helmet that will be better then nothing. how fast do you plan on going on the board?

ive never touched a board before… but i have had my board for about a month now and ive been getting used to it as much as i can. and i plan on cruising at like 15-20mph probably.

not even a non powered longboard or skateboard? if that is the case maybe get full face helmet.

maybe go dual 6355’s then and buy a helmet

also isn’t it hot as a mofo out there? the tsg doesn’t have great ventilation with the visor down maybe look at a full face mountain bike helmet it’ll have a lot of breathing vents

totally agree , I had a full face BEFORE my first eboard even arrived (and I’ve skated ~34 years!) I saw what happened to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kevin_Pearce_(snowboarder) don’t risk your ability to skate just to go faster!

I find the “tsg pass syndrome” the most intriguing. Any good helmet is up for the job. If you own a motorcycle helmet use it. Unless It is a very low quality one It will be better than the tsg. I use the same helmet i had for my electric bikes.

i rock a basic skate helmet from walmart… better than nothing and safety first, plus youll have the extra coin up front for the dual

Its actually been really nice the past few month surprisingly. and i already have a 6374 motor so its too late to go 6355’s… the full face mountain bike helmet is something i may consider but i really like the small size of the TSG, always found dirt style helmets a bit big.

i’m really leaning towards just using my motorcycle helmet tbh… i did some research about why its a bad idea to use a MC on a board but i mean, if my MC helmet can save me flying off my bike at 80mph+ i should be find taking a tumble off a board going 20-30 right?..

I got a double certified helmet from zumiez before I finished my board and when I took my hard fall a month ago it definitly saved my life.

Going dual is also a safety improvement, as braking is so much better with two motors. That’s the most important gain with 2 imo. Insufficient braking power could also kill you. A good helmet is a must though :thinking:

Go dual, Having stronger more reliable brakes is a good safety feature :smiley:
