Full face helmets. DH or MX?
I am planning to get a full face helmet. So far, 661, and TLD wont fit my head. My other options are Fox Tracer MX/DH helmet with Dot and Snell approval and the Bell Bellistic DH and Uvex DH. The thing is that Fox had great quality (same as the TLD non-carbon) and is 1450gr whereas the bell is 1000gr with more vents but is much less stronger/safer. My question is, should i go with a proper MX helmet which gives you more protection and more quality for your money or should i get a bike helmet? Any recommendations will be more than helpfull . My head size is 62.5cm so any helmets listed up to 61-62cm wont fit me unless they have a supersize fit in general (for example 661 have tight fit regardless of the XL size).
