Hopefully that gap isn't there when I wear them. :eek: Otherwise I'll be looking for yet another set of goggles... :roll:

EDIT: BTW, the visor is rad....

Personally, if they look that way on Brian, too, I would just return them. The Smith Phenoms that I have fit his helmet well - but they're girly. There are also a ton of Bolle and Dragon goggles @ TJ Maxx right now... might be worth bringing the helmet down and trying them out.

I doubt it. Your fat head should fill that helmet better. :razz: I still can't believe you're in a medium. I must have a bigger brain.

Nah, just a fatter head. Your body is trying to protect what little it has up there the best it can. Whereas, in my case, I've got plenty of brain power to spare so it wouldn't matter if I lost a bit in a crash... ;)

I tried on the Roots with the G10 briefly tonight and they fit much better on my head than Carrie's. Looks like I found my goggle solution. :D I got two pairs for less than it cost me for one pair of crowbars from Tramdock. The look very similar to the crowbar, but they have a much longer strap.

glad it all worked out. :D

One popular fix for a small gap is an inexpensive but high quality thin skull cap,
about $10 plus you look really cool in the bar after you take off your helmet. :wink:

Yeah really, I'm at least a half foot shorter and bald as an egg and I barely fit my melon into a medium. He must have to run into a wall head first to get the helmet on. :wink:

Yes it is. I have that helmet in black. Awesome for tree skiing. When you see branches coming that will slap your face, just lower your head and the visor protects you.

at one point last season in the trees at stowe my face was getting so whiped i actually considered getting a full face. i was out at dinner one night at the bartender thought i had been in a fight.i have a visor on my burton and im neither here nor there with it.

I could totally understand the advantages of a full-faced helmet in the trees. Heck,when I get to that point, I might want one. I'm so accident prone I might need it. :oops:

Burton does not have a model that has a 'real' visor. The Mutiny's is so small it would do nothing. My G10MX has a real big visor just like a full face Moto-x helmet.


Works good for me.
