    You guys do know that the 'saddle holding part'* of the post is alloy, not carbon?

    XC lid and goggles

    Hey, just wandering if anyone here has used a set of goggles (like Oakley's MX series) with a XC helmet (open faced). I'm aware it looks daft, but I've seen some riders using them in enduro events...

    Regarding the x-raying carbon - would the fibre/layup/damage really show on an x-ray? (I doubt it, but I've only ever studied x-rays into medical uses, and even that was a low level of education).

    I don't think Hoy would do something like that without reason/it was a mistake (which I doubt).
