I wish I could ride dirt to work vs having to sit in traffic. As a bonus, you have a DH track on the way to and from. You sir are winning at life!!!

I do appreciate everyone's comments and it's interesting to see different perspectives. We all have our own comfort zones and with that, determine what level of risk we are willing to take. In the end, I hope that we all continue to ride on and enjoy ... more »

It's not just that I've seen riders on 5-6 inch bikes riding aggressively in open face helmets. It's that they are riding and racing enduro on the same trails they rode DH and full gear in the recent past. Even I wear an open face on my Covert. It's ... more »

One things for sure, most could ride circles around me. In terms of the Joey factor, I think that's where the fad issue might come into play. If it's not cool and you see the rippers wearing half shells, or open face, then I think it could potentially ... more »

You make very valid points. My primary curiosity stems from seeing a fairly large number of former DH riders/racers who within the last year or so are now riding the exact same trails on enduro bikes and open face helmets. Trust me, these guys rip and ... more »

I feel naked at that speed without my full face and neck brace.

Yesterday, I may have worn a tshirt. I don't remember the last time I wore elbow pads. Always knee pads and my neck brace though.

I'm sure those that have chosen to ride open face have weighed the risks, but the ones I see are charging just as hard. I guess it's the sudden shift in rationale that puzzles me.

I completely understand the climbing aspect. It's the descent that I can't understand. Again, same trails formally considered DH worthy are now being ridden with open face. To each their own I guess.

I hate to say that it appears to be a fad, but it appears to be a fad. Whatever it is, I simply can't imagine waking up one morning and deciding it is safe to wear an open face helmet just because I decreased travel by two inches while riding the same ... more »

I can understand the pedaling aspect, but it's just crazy to me that a person can go from thinking full face on one bike, open face on another bike (same trail) and risk facial injuries or worse.
