Hi Guys, I am gonna buy myself an open face helmet for summer (for about $100-$250) and I need advice from people who have EXPERIENCE in open face helmets. The things I am not sure about are: - Do I need the peak/visor that are offered by some models? - Quick Release strap mechanisms. I have only ever used the old style D-ring setup, are the quick release ones any good? - "shorty" style hlemets - are they street legal? Comfortable? - brands: I know that different brands fit different people, but are there any brands that are absolute rubbish? What about really great brands. - any other advice that can only be gained from wearing open face helmets for years? My goal is to get a helmet that is light and will allow the wind to keep my face and head dry and cool. p.s. - I don't need any advice about having my face torn off or my jaw shattered. If I wanted 100% safety I would drive a volvo.
