anyone seen these in the flesh looks good on paper removeable chin section and peak.

why would you remove the chin section? It isnt vented enough for xc use. Oh and I have never heard of it, neither has google so it would seem. You really need a proper picture to look at. They say it meets all the necessary standards which is good, having said that most DH lids exceed these standards.

you could get a 661 comp or O'Neil Fury for example for around the same price.

I like the idea of useing the helmet mostly without the chin guard then fitting it when needed. Also tried googling it and found nothing.

well a little playing with google and found that they could be a ventura:

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Ventura-Full-Face-Cycling-Helmet-Black-60-62cm-39-95-/200473837359?cmd=ViewItem&pt=UK_Cycling_Clothing&hash=item2ead2bff2f">http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Ventura-Full-Face ... 2ead2bff2f</a><!-- m -->

and £10 cheaper

This is just my personal view though, would it not be less strength in the jaw protector if it is made to be removable? it does say secured by 4 (possibly 2?) aluminium bolts so i could be wrong about the strength issue.

its a bit strange though normaly im good at finding things on google but other than the original link and VENTURA brand names i cant find any more info about them

i would spend the same money on a decent pisspot lid as you will get better use out of it, i use mine for everything including, xc, dh and sessioning the local jumps, i have a full face but its heavy and hot despite being carbon fibre.

Agree with sailor, there is nowhere near enough venting for XC use, your head will boil! Do you really need a full face helmet?

As I get older I get more delicate, thinking of wearing bike leathers next, then just need to fine a way of fitting cleats to my steel toe cap boots

long as they have the steel sole you shold be able to weld them straight on Smile

ps think you might be able to get your zima frame converted with wheels and rear fox shocks as well Smile though i wouldnt advise putting anything more than 100mm forks on the front it tends to make them a bit nose heavy
