That's the beauty of convertible full face helmets, can wear a helmet all the way up and have a full face for the descents. I know if I had a dedicated full face I would never want to wear it aside from park riding/shuttling.

I have been running Shimano ME7 for the last 2 years. 1st pair cracked at the cleat and was covered under warranty and now my second pair has done the same.

Who makes a good "enduro" shoe that won't break on me and fit wide feet. Previously I had 5/10's and they were solid until the sole wore out but not sure about their latest offering.

Ive previously wore the ME7 as well, and also cracked the sole. I used a pair of 5.10 Hellcat pro's with success last season. They have a nice wide toe box, and seemed to work well for a Big dude

I bought a fox proframe last year and I am trying to wear it on a more regular basis. I run hot and still find it uncomfortable to climb in compared to a half shell.

I picked up one of these to give it a shot since it is cheap. It does a really good job of holding the helmet for the climb so I will actually use it. The only issue is you need to make sure you have enough spacers for it to be above your stem.

Wow! that seems like a useful product.

Im in the same boat with my pro frame...Ill defiantly have to give it a go

Yes! Another haf clip user. Was going to mention them..

Got one late last year and I use it all the time on the trail bike. Holds a helmet, pads, or jacket. Ideally I could use it to carry a trail bong too but idk yet...

That would be a sight to be seen! something like the old Syncros bar ends...That doubled as a trail pipe.

Better to have it and not need it than to not have it and need it eh

My bag is just a bit too small to carry a full face. I've thought of doing this too as I usually pedal up nonstop, but there are definitely some trails that involve a bit of down followed by more climbing and I'm not hero enough to ride it lidless and dont' wanna take it off and strap it on again (sounds bad). The more I think about it, the crazier it seems enduro bike riders are riding with these beater lids on.

Working in a bike store I always found it very concerning that we were taking dudes who hadn't ridden a bike in 10+ years, sticking them on a 160 travel Trek Rail that made them feel invincible and we were sending them out the store with a half lid and some XC-weight knee pads.

Good luck out there bud

Maybe five years ago, I sent a pipe screen most of the way into my Maxle Stealth. That way you could load your loud through the Allen key end, and pull from the threaded end.

We're creating customers for Doctors and Dentists, knowing that money will surely come back to the bike industry

It's compassion for companies like Niner & Yeti.

Nice! What’s the thickness on these?

3mm total iirc, but they’re the vented version, so there’s vents sandwiched betwixt two thinner surfaces.
