    I ran a similar helmet for quite awhile. I found the overall lack of venting to be a problem, and eventually bought a more purpose built helmet. Sight lines and protection should be fine though.

    I used a helmet like thatm, With zero vents and weight, I think it will be on the shelf ..
    We use the Downhill Mountain bike helmets all are around $65-75
    I use a Bellistic, and my kids use the 661 You can search on AMAZON, Whats awesome is they are as light as a potatoe chip and super vented

    I've found a few trials helmets on ebay, and craigslist, cheap. I like the "Gazoo" looking Shiro helmets, removable liners but they dont make them anymore, but new was only $120.
