Re: RC: Helmet Opinion Check
I was in the Army (active) and National Guard for 11 years, hated my 9 lb
steel pot because of neck problems,which persist to this day but not
related to my military service. You'll be pleasantly surprised by the
newer riding helmets, might even forget it is even on your head. Try
either the Troxel Sport or the Lex Lidlocker if your head is roundish, the
Troxel Legacy if it's oval. Because of lots of falls over the years, um, I
have one of each. (Gotta send the other two to Trox for the free
xray...one of these days!) My old helmets go to a handicapped riding
group, once they vet out ok.
