Thor Force and Fox v3 are lightweight >2lbs and the fox really moves air through the helmet, what are you looking for in a lid?

Various Equipment for various uses.
Dirt, Street, Track, Dual Sport, I like em all.








The Arai is pretty sweet, but lil expensive for me. I dont know why I say this, my street helmets are arai. My dirt helmet currently is Oneil. I am in the market for a new dirt helmet as well.

i got mine on sale at cycle gear for 150. But all the others are good brands, I started of with an Oneil helmet that was only 90 bucks and it took a beating, now that I dont crash so much I went with a nicer helmet.

www.rockymountainmc.com sent me an e-mail yesterday on some clearance stuff, they have the Fox V3 for $159 and $179, The cheapest Thor force carbon I found was $400.

The V3 comes with a nice padded bag and a spare visor.

One more for the Fox, I have wrecked in them many more times than I care to remember and always held up great even on direct impact. Great padding, light weight, good price, and cool looks
