The old argument is that the MX helmets may not protect you as well in low speed crashes. And of course, ventilation is pretty poor sometimes. And I guess weight comes into play too.
really...I always thought MX helmets give more protection

motorcross helmets are usually going to be heavier but thats besides they have higher crash standards then a full face bicycle helmet like a giro mad max or a troy lee d2. Not all motocross helmets are going to have poor ventilation, like many people say, you get what you pay for.

Until someone starts selling replacement brains I am going to stick with moto helmets.

I started using a moto helmet this past year and didn't notice any big difference. The difference that you will feel go away after a day of using it.
