I've been skating for quite a long time now both down hill and free ride and im looking to do more racing next year. ive been using a Bell drop ful face for DH and the other day i took i fairly nasty crash and hit my helmet pretty hard and i will probably need a new helmet.
so any way my question is whether or not you think i should go for the cheaper option and get another bell or invest in a more expensive helmet like a charly or a predator.
what is your opinion on this
Go for the in-betweener and get a SpeedMaster Pro.
Speed masters are rad helmets. Nothin wrong with the Bell Drop though.
he johnny how much do bell drops cost ?
friend of mine just bought a speedmaster type helmet for $160 shipped from the states with s mirror lense. but again if you are cracking your head still I would go with the safer option of the bell but with a charly lense.
bells are great and in nz you can get the drop for as cheap as 80nzd so thats peanuts with the exchange rate, i payed 150nzd and felt slightly ripped off, check nz bike shops online for a bell drop
