Recently I succeeded in converting a friend to the EUC religion! As a good preacher, I am helping him choosing the EUC and the gear Now we are looking at full face helmets and I am struggling to justify my decision of buying a TSG Pass... Well, the reason I bought it is because I read in one thread here many good things about it (concerning safety) AND I found it on sale during the last Black Friday (It is an outstanding helmet and I even forget I am wearing it!) My friend would like to know if he should go with a similar model (not on sale though) or one of the MTB/DH helmets also mentioned in the previous thread like the Leatt DBX 6.0 Carbon. I told him that, in my opinion, it is a trade-off between convenience (being able to just remove a piece of equipment + not having to buy goggles) and heat (as I tend to boil with this helmet in direct sunlight even in winter). Though his point is that the Leatt's shield will protect him from the rain and sun during the summer, plus during winter he could just put on a balaclava. He will mainly use the EUC (one of the new Inmotion V8F) for daily commuting and to go with me off-road once in a while on weekends. One important remark is that he has glasses, and I am not sure how would that play with goggles, although he's been snowboarding with them inside goggles with no issues... What would the helmet gurus of this forum recommend, DH/MTB or longboard/skateboard full helmet? PS: Any suggestion regarding goggles?
