#!markdown Yeah, it does make a lot of sense. I don't run two helmets on individual rides, I'll just hump it uphill with a FF donned. Mostly, the suck factor for wearing a lightweight full-face helmet isn't really that bad, and if bumping cardio redline isn't the plan for climbing, they do work ok. I'd still like to run a removable chin-bar option, as it makes lots of sense, it's just that none of them are $100 nicer (especially due to weight) than just running a lightweight full face. I think the second-gen ones will be awesome enough to start supplanting those, but I think some of the fancy integration will have to come into how the chin bar gets carried (backpack-helmet combos with some limited back protection). Kali may also roll out with a pretty awesome one. Still pretty cool to me that all of the Bell supported racing teams (FIA WEC, F1, etc.) also run the Super2R as a pit crew helmet where full fire suits aren't required.
