    Fullface Helmet.

    Hi all,

    I finally got myself a fullface helmet after a loooong market search. It seems that if someone has a large head then he is in big trouble with helmets. After trying Giro, Bell, 661, TLD i lost all hope since all where small. Luckily only Fox makes an XXL helmet 63-64cm and it fitted me like a glove. The helmet weighs approx 1400-1450g but it is MX-Race certified so it offers loads of protection. The build quality is next only to TLD, imho better than 661 and Giro. Only 3 vents though due to the MX nature of the helmet.

    Here is a pic. I highly recommend the helmet to anyone in search for a supersized helmet.

    PS the pic makes the lid seem larger than normal. Thats the lens of my cameraphone that are to blame for.

    Loads and loads of more protection. MX helmets have a proper shell outside the polysterene inner shell. Bike helmets have only a very thin outer shell. What you loose though is weight. MX helmets are 10-20% heavier than bike helmets. On the other hand they are certified for MX-Racing, which means they can protect you several times more that you will ever need while riding a bike.

    Overall, the main advantage is that MX helmets offer more sizing options and higher manufacturing quality for a given price in direct comparison with a similarly priced bike helmet.
