I think he meant he was more damaged than the helmet.

I'm thinking of retiring my 10 year old helmet for one of these new fangled wrap around jobs. Does anybody own one of the following helmets and can they offer their thoughts on them?

1. Fox Flux
2. 661 Recon
3. Giro Hex


I have a Flux and love it.

works quite well, but not so sure how it would compare ventilation wise to the others.

I've recently got an Urge Endur-O-Matic. Super comfy helmet and gives a god feeling of security. It all depends on what style o riding you do at the end of the day. Mot as much ventilation as a road style hemet but more than you think looking at it as the holes are big and well placed. I seem to have an awkward shaped head and have always had problems finding a helmet that is comfortable but this one is very good straight out the box with some nice design ideas.

ive been trying to remember the 'THE' one for ages!
what is the model?
its trials based as i recall?

that urge looks pretty good too although it looks like it lack ventilation on the 'sweatband' of your head? as do many helmets

I looked at this helmet as well for the same reason.

I always felt that with the MET helmet I had before if I'd hit the deck sideways the extended back of the helmet (if that makes sense) could twist my head round and damage my neck. The ones that cup the back of your head seem a bit safer in terms of twisting your head when hitting the ground.
