one less horse
I've been doing quite a bit of dirt jumping lately, and I'd like to find a helmet that will give me a little more protection on the back of my cranium. I think I am looking for a skate style helmet, but will consider other options. After the increased protection, my primary concern is good ventilation, as the North Carolina summers can get rather hot and humid.
I'd like to hear your experiences and impressions.
I now work part time at a shop, so cost is not necessarily of huge importance, since I get good deals.
Skate is probably way to go, since full faces get hotTER.
For full faces, I know people don't like having multiple small vents in the front and say they do nothing. 1 big vent is better, for breathing.
For skate, I hear pro-tecs (B2's and Aces) are really nice and strong, I don't know about Bell Factions, but they seem in the zone.

Go with a quality skate helmet, (not one from wal-mart), but get it from a LBS. I have a louis garneau and it fits pretty good.
Have a gander at the Six Six one mullet and other helmet by them, apparently TSG are pretty good aswell..
Try em on. Most of the helmets don't fut my head for sure. 661 doesn't make one that fits right. I always end up having to buy off brands
pro-tec has some good ones, go to a skateshop and have a look
I have a pretty regular pro-tec helmet and its awsome...cheap, comfortable and not very hot.
