    So beside's chic euro styleing,
    Is there anyway that a trails helmet is different then say a 3/4 from Shoei or Arai?

    Me personally I've grown attached to my chin and have a hard time riding without a full face, even at slow speeds. But for those that feel like you have a better view with a chinless helmet, this might be the way to go.

    Trials helmets are quite different. First they are MUCH lighter than a traditional open face helmet. Second they are cut different in the back to allow more neck movement (like tilting head back....way back). Usually well vented as well.

    I had the same reservations about the open face as I have ALWAYS worn a full face. Took some adjusting but now I couldn't go back...for trials riding anyway. I've been riding trials since 2001 and have yet to tear my face off...yet :D
