I use a motocross helmet; I assume there's a motorcycle/ATV shop somewhere near you? Try a few different styles, see what you like, what fits well, etc.

I am a fan of the open face Simpson stuff, which can be had over at Motorsport Supply. I'm sure there are other places that carry them but, I just haven't been there so I can't tell you who it is.

Must be 3/4 face for XRRA this year. Greg are you stepping up for Moab? We will not have my new buggy ready for Moab but hopefully for the Springs event!!! I saw you posting on Pirate, let me know what's up when you figure out if your running in Moab or not. You need 3/4 face helmet, neck braces and window nets or arm restraints for driver and spotter.....but I think you knew all that.:beer:

Trials riders need lots of head movement and the helmets have a high back neck area so you can move pretty easy. The face is pretty open for good perefial vision. I've got a Yes helmet and it's really light and you hardly notice you're wearing it.

Here is a site to see similar helmets as the Yes website isn't that goood.

If you'd like to try one on and see it feel it let me know.

Trials riders play in the rocks too

G - check out SUN motorcycles - 84th and Washington. They have a huge selection. Ask for Garth and see if he can help you out - Garth is involved on STT.

Colorado Power Sports on 104th between Huron and Sheridan also has helmets.
