One of the advanced guys in our club started wearing his full face for practice and events. He gets a lot of why? comments from the other members. His takeaway is he feels more comfortable wearing it than an open face due to crash concerns. He is an aggressive rider and has moved through the classes pretty fast. For me it's a weight issue. The lighter the better as long as it's still going to protect my skull from rocks and hard knocks. I still wear knee pads though as my legs always get hurt in that area if I don't wear them even if I don't fall. I bang around on the frame, foot pegs and the occasional rock pretty much every ride. I hate taking a foot peg to the back of the knee when I don't make an obstacle.
