1st, why?Sneaker_Geek said:Yea, like a strap on a football helmet, but on a bike helmet of course.
Good advice... I'm talked out of it. I'll go for this fox helmet I found for like 60 bucks. Whatta you guys think. http://www.pricepoint.com/detail.htm?stylePkey=17858&style_id=215 FOXFL8boomn said:I find a the little buckle on a bike helmet much more comfortable than the football helmet style. Those chin things acted like a cup and collected the sweat on my chin, didn't ventilate well, and always ended up smelling funny. My Cascade lacrosse helmet was a lot better though, but still more restrictive and less comfortable than a bike helmet
A football helmet needs to be anchored stronger to take direct frontal hits over and over, so they use that chin strap to anchor it from pushing back on your head. A bike helmet doesn't have this problem.
I agree. The influx is a great helmet for the price.Finch Platte said:Don't overlook the Bell Influx. MTBR reviews of it are here: http://www.mtbr.com/cat/mtb-apparel-and-protection/Helmet/bell/influx/PRD_361056_126crx.aspx
You can find these for a good price (I think Nashbar might have them on sale).
I had one & loved it. It was getting old & I got a killer deal on a Giro at REI, otherwise I would have gotten a new Influx, no bout adoubt it.
