Time to replace the trusty Remedy.

Im looking at getting a DOT to replace it. Cant risk a head injury from now until August...

Either 661 Flight or RockGardn Warbird series.
Any one own either one? I know a few MTBR'ers own the 661 Flight, would you guys care to share?


I already know it will be A: Heavier B: Hotter. I dont care.

I saw you a few times at Northstar holmes, and me and my buddy on the Chumba (Yes, Chumba) always kicked the 661 Flight. Its the most legit DOT Helmet out there. I highly recommended it. Definitely see if you can try one on, they're on the snug side of things.

my flight is the most comfortable helmet ive used. its not all that heavy at all, i dont notice the difference between that and my old giro. it breaths pretty well and one of them has already saved my life.( i feel 20 ft straight to my shoulder, whiplashed my head sideways into the ground. the flight i had on has about 100 cracks in the side of it, and one that goes all the way up the side through the kevlar. if it wasnt for that, my brains would be on the bottom of side o...) i STRONGLY reccomend it.

I have a frail little school girl neck. How much do all ya'll Flights weigh?

My only concern is that the Warbird weighs 3.5lbs.....

The flights suck compared to Fox V3. It was the lightest moto helmet avalible, not sure if its been beat yet. It has the most air flow out of any helmet I have ever felt. It does cost a lot more than the flight though.
