Fox Proframe or POC Coron Air Spin?

Recommended Posts

I believe @Kevin Grandon rocks the Fox.

It'd be great to meet and ride with you and your wife someday here in San Francisco! A bunch of us (including my wife, who isn't on the forum yet, @Kevin Grandon@Nevin@Tec-toyz.com, @Voodoo Circus) ride most Sundays as an "eWheel" ;) group, and join other riders (eskate, Onewheel) on Friday nights and Saturdays. We also ride many evenings along the waterfront from AT&T Park to the Golden Gate Bridge. I think I may have seen your wife on her V5F on Mission near Bernal? CHEERS

Just checked out paragliding helmets. While they look cool, they seem optimized for the wrong things with respect to EUC use. For riding an EUC I want a helmet that is optimized for multiple, relatively low speed impacts (like a skateboard, ski, DH/enduro bike helmet) and is more about preventing concussions (absorptive / deforming) than skull fractures (hard shell, intrusion protection; like a motorcycle helmets). I'm also looking for something that will not interfere with hearing my surroundings, rather than something designed to reduce wind noise (i.e. motorcycle, car racing, paragliding, etc.).  I also want something with good air flow.

The only full-face helmet I've found that seems to meet these criteria is the POC Coron Air Spin. I'd buy it, but I got the older model of Coron (non-Air) and it was uncomfortable (my current helmet is a POC Receptor Backcountry MIPS, which is great but it's not full face).  The Fox Proframe meets all the criteria except multi-impact.  The new Bell Super DH looks promising too, but is also not multi-impact.
