i wouldn't use a leatt with a helmet that wasn't a true full face. the leatt needs the chin guard to be solid to protect your neck. i know bell's helmet isn't certified as a full face, that's all i need to know. if they won't stamp it, it's because it can't pass the tests

the issue is the chin guard can snap off and cause more injury than if you were riding with a regular helmet. the idea has been tried before with little success, in fact with it being pulled from the market. the issue is what constitutes when it is applicable?

google met parachute mishaps if you want to see what a helmet like the bell offers. met now makes a certified version after taking the original off the market because of the injuries from it. the bell isn't a full face and has zero certification as one. if you want the false sense of security wear it. if you want full face protection, buy a fulll face

Airborne Toxin - Review
Ultimately it's because airborne has no r&d department. It's a catalogue bike like you'd get from bikes direct. They have zero invested in engineering. They go through a catalogue from one of the Taiwanese manufacturers and say put airborne on the downtube. Spec some cheaper parts and bang, you have a bike. That by no means makes it junk, it's just how they can offer a bike cheap. No engineers working for airborne. No testers. Ask them any tech questions about the suspension design or what the linkage ratio is and they'd have to go look it up. You can't compare a mail order company to Santa Cruz or others. Airborne isn't building prototypes and having their guys ride them and refine them before going into production. They are buying a proven older design. That's it. That's why it's cheap. Zero investment. But it's a good thing because it can get people into the sport who may have initially been put off by high prices. Not many people who buy one will buy a second airborne.

if that is the case then you should be asking pinkbike why they are deleting comments for you. none of the comments were inflammatory, just opinions on how the range issue was handled.

i see now the article is user generated by norco themselves. i imagine norco edited any negative comments all on their own. great pr guys, brutal. you have to take the good with the bad and you guys blew the range issue. take ownership, don't just censor, makes you look even worse
