    I have been trying to find some info on this helmet. I have tried on the Trophy and like the fit, but my OTG goggles won't fit.
    Does anyone wear the F2 carbon? How do your goggles fit and any info?

    Thanks

    So we did an experiment in the store.... With the Fly F2 Carbon on, the Oakley L-Frame seemed to fit inside the helmet the best. We also tried the Scott 87 OTG which did not seem to fit well at all and the Smith Option OTG which seemed to seal on the face nicely but did not seem to fit inside the helmet as well as the L-Frame. Hope that helps a little!

    Thanks for doing the testing. I really appreciate it. While I have been waiting for this kind of info, I was still searching for another helmet that might work.

    I found that Scorpion, is building a new helmet and will be out in the spring. It is a step up from the VX 34 and is the VX70.
    As I have worn the EXO 700 and the EXO 500 and really liked the build and fit, I'm going to wait for that helmet and wear my EXO 500 for the time being. It will be warmer anyway.:lol3

    Thanks again and happy holidays
