What do you think about wearing a full face helmet for racing? I am trying masters racing/training at Mt. Rose this year and thought I might get the full face POC with MIPS. I just started wearing a motocross helmet while skiing at the end of last season, and when I went back to my 3/4 Briko I felt naked. At the speeds I ski, seems like the extra protection would be good. But how about the additional chances of a broken neck etc.. I know it looks a little kooky, but the added protection seems worth the stares etc.. I would tell others that I had alot of very expensive dental work, which is true. Was also thinking about the POC 3/4 helmet, as my Briko is now at least 10+ years old.
Also, what do I need as far as gear to train? Have skis, Volkl Racetigers (sl and gs), Head wc (sl and gs), and a pair of Rossi wc cheater skis.
Is the full face POC legal for race training and racing?
What else? Shin gaurds, forearm gaurds? Not sure about getting a speed suit, as honestly, I might never race, but think the coaching and training should help my skiing.
