So i'm probably one of the few that's not converted to full face helmets yet... I've fallen a couple of times now (only once concussion inducing) but never face first.

But coming winter (well it's a possibility here in Belgium) i'm looking for one that is more winter suited. (as in higher visibility and warmer ears mostly)

Any of you have experience with these or would recommend something else? Below are actually mainly targetted to speed-pedelec's.

Cratoni Vigor Abus Pedelec 2.0 ACE Giro Bexley MIPS or Centro Winter except the last one they are all around 200€. (last one is half)

Goggles, sorry for my english.

Ah like that. For eye protection?

I wear sunglasses and I have some clear glasses that are about the same shape too. When riding the Onewheel I don't use them. When EUC'ing I try to think about taking them along, because insects in your eyes, that's not a lot of fun

Mmm interesting, and what about the size of the helmet? I have read that is a bit bigger than others.

It has the same system as bicycle helmets to fit around your head, so you just turn a wheel on the back of your head.

Cheekpads can be bought in different sizes. I bought thicker ones.

My TSG Pass arrived today. Satin fire red. So sexy! I was super excited.

My wife less so. “That’s great, at least it will protect your face. Are you going to pick up that box or am I going to be tripping over it for the next three weeks?”

Ahh Marriage...

I live in Philadelphia and I would give up EUCs before riding around in a dirt bike helmet. I wear a POC

I wonder, is it reasonably comfortable to wear a POC + chinguard amidst Philadelphian😁 summer? 
(My search for a helmet has brought me into the same alley: skiing helmet with a a chinguard). Very curious.

I'm going to be throwing down my money on one of these puppies when it launches this year. I already own a Livall smart cycle helmet, and while expensive, I think it was worth it. It has Bluetooth built in, indicators, rear light, and also a crash sensor that hooks into your mobile phone and will send a message plus GPS co-ordinates to a designated number should you have an accident.

This motorcycle helmet builds on that, and also features a head up display with your speed, heart rate!? and gps map....which for riding a unicycle will be fantastic :) Plus for you nutters happy to risk losing your jaw/nose ;) It converts into an open-faced helmet. But I suspect the biggest drawback will be the price! 

edit: oh yeah, and a built in 4K camera!

Yep, standard issue Ebay kit! Millions of them on there, all the same. About £5.50 IIRC. Cheap as chips!

I went for the double stripe. But I fancy ordering another kit in a different colour so that I can have two colours at once :)

The very front section on yours that doubles back, I had to cut that bit off, which is why it looks a little different. Amazing how that stuff lights up though!

Possibly Odd Question: Will the trolley handle on the Kingsong 18XL pass through one of the wider full-face helmet visor holes? Would be nice to be able to have the handle do double duty as a helmet rack while I'm doing the shopping.

Well, I have a 4 xl full-face helmet, and it doesn't fit through either the visor hole or the head hole:) I use this flip up helmet for shopping: https://www.shropshiremotorcycles.co.uk/product-page/tuzo-flip-up-cycle-helmet and I don't really care that I look like an idiot wearing a helmet indoors. My routine for taking on a helmet is so strong that I've managed to walk the dogs with the helmet on a few times:)

Anyone have any experience with the S One Lifer full face? Kind of like a TSG pass but waay more accommodating for folks with larger domes.
