    Same helmet I have been running for a couple years now, No damage to the internals, no reason to replace it every year, Vigor Vamoose2 with the goofy Helmet strap removed and repainted.

    First time It was painted it looked like this


    Now it looks like this

    giro xen and 661 full face(no idea of the model). they are kind of old(not so old that they are unsafe) and not pretty right now, but they protect my dome and fit just fine.

    edit: i should get one of these since i think i'll only be racing slalom next season...

    Ditto on both for me.

    EDIT: well, for the top 2. I used to have an employee who used to wear the tin foil hat, waiting to be beamed back up the mother ship.

    My helmet options are greatly limited due to the size of my humongous cranium. The Vigor Vamoose 2 is the only one I have found that fits without modification.

    Is the visor on the back so you can wear it backwards and still be covered?

    It actually looks awesome, it just reminded me of a visor conversation we had over the weekend.

    I have never looked at the Fox lids, what did that run?
