I am considering purchasing a full-face helmet. My old helmet was pretty standard and made by K2. I am a very aggressive skier, only hitting blacks and doubles up in the PNW. I ski steep and deep. I've been wanting to shred with these helmets for a few years now but I am finally going to purchase one if it's the smart idea... and that's the problem: Are they safe?
I want to look cool, but safety is the most important thing. I cannot grow the most impressive beard and I hate putting a mask over my mouth. I have dirtbiked before and I know how comfortable these helmets can be. But is there any dangers to using one of these helmets? Thank you for all who reply.
If anyone is wondering which helmet, I am either purchasing the Giro Cipher or the POC version.
