    I’ve been using the same full-face helmet for the past 6 years.  Until today. Yours truly went down to Cyclegear on a mission to find a 3/4 helmet with a screen that I might like.  And i have been successful.  Walked out with a carbon Schubert 3/4 with a full face screen.  Took it for an hour ride and gosh darn it i really likes it.  So i think I’m hooked.   For long rides maybe switch back to the Aria full face but this Schubert increased visibility.  Especially turning my head.  I can see everything now.  Which is a weird feeling!

    Was very curious as to what you all ride with on your Trophy’s!

    I put full face because you didn't have a flip front option. Have used a flip front for at least 15 years. Currently a Shoe Neotec. Would not go back to anything else.

    A full face since a very bad injury of low jaw back in ...1973. when I fell over the bike, got my right ankle trapped between the fuel tank and the hadle bar and slid 15 meters on the road face down, I was wearing an Altus cheap French "equivalent" to the famous Crowmwell I could not afford at the time. Have been a loyal customer to Araï since and perfectly happy with them (I can smile again  :008: :745:)

    I have used Flip front for the last number of years (probably 10) Had caberg but for my head shape that became very uncomfortable so went to schuberth C3 pro  I am currently in the market for another and want to try the neotec and C4

    I've been wearing a Shark Skwal full face helmet for a few months now - it's comfortable and very quiet.  The ventilation is good, too.  I've worn it in hot (Florida) weather and rainy weather - works well in both.  No fogging with the pinlock insert installed, which is included.

    It's quiet with or without ear plugs.  Though, with ear plugs the music through the bike speakers sounds better.

    The helmet LEDs, front and back, may be somewhat gimmicky, but I like 'em.  They show up well in the dark, on the way to work - steady or flashing.

    I have two, HJC I MAXII and a Schuburth C3Pro.  Wore HJCs for quite a few years because they fit my round head very well.  The Schuburth fits good also and is a little more quiet, lighter, with better ventilation.  Like them both.

    Late spring to early fall I wear a Shark Evoline modular so I can open it up and use it as an open face when the weather's really hot (90+ degrees). In the late fall to early spring I wear a Shoei RF1200 since it's too hot during the summer months but perfect during colder weather.
