    I put on my full face every time I ride on trails that slalom around trees. Even if it’s not that gnarly. It only takes one tree to the face…

    There’s 3 types of helmet if you categorise them that way.
    Open face
    Full face
    Bell Super 3R which features a lightweight removable chin guard.

    When i have full face i fell more comfortable on every trail

    I grew up nobody had helmets we also made homemade jumps and did all kinds of crazy unsafe things. I don’t disagree with using helmets, but I think sometimes we are going overboard.

    why isn’t there a whole video today ??

    Don’t forget the classic skateboarding helmet, good for street riding.

    I only wear a helmet when there’s a need for one. If I’m cruising over to the grocery store there’s no need for a helmet.🤨🤔

  8. REWIND on May 19, 2023 at 9:37 am

    still trying to figure out when i need to wear my full face, i never wear it because its big.

  9. edy_N1s on May 19, 2023 at 9:41 am

    SMITH helmets are just the best ❤👌🔥

  10. Brian Allen on May 19, 2023 at 9:45 am

    Learn how to fall!!👍👍

  11. 夏天青 on May 19, 2023 at 9:49 am

    Full face save my face twice (one is street riding one is trail riding )definitely gonna wear full-face every time I went trail riding

  12. Commander FPV on May 19, 2023 at 9:58 am

    Giro Tyrant 3/4 helmet…

  13. encore surfacing on May 19, 2023 at 10:01 am

    Full face for ebikes. Always. The speeds can be much higher and the falls hurt a lot more. Don’t ask me how I know.

  14. Emil on May 19, 2023 at 10:05 am

    A lid? Have never heard that before. 😅 Brittish thing?

  15. lorna. on May 19, 2023 at 10:11 am

    The thing I don’t understand is why mtb’ers use helmets to Protect their heads and face but they don’t use a gum shield to protect their teeth.

    I have a bmx helmet that covers from my forehead and back its better proctection and a fullface moped helmet
