#!markdown I have Bell Super 2R but I'd never race any real Enduro in it, nor would I ride it in the bike park. I have smacked my face enough inside TLD D2, a legit full face to not trust any removable stuff for full on gravity riding. I am surprised I have my teeth in place, when I hit my chin into the ground after my front wheel went over the edge of a berm. That was with D2 on my head and my mouth was hurting for a week, with a big abbrasion on the chin. Check Barry Nobbles Facebook, he just broke his nose in a MX helmet when riding in a bike park. I agree with Pinkbike audience on this one, Industry has to be quite clear that these helmets offer an ounce more abbrasion protection so that you can show your face on a monday meeting, after a weekend with AM gang, but aren't real FF helmets for gravity riding. Don't think for a moment that you can ride them in the park instead of D3 because you aren't pushing that hard. That thought alone is a hint that you actually should wear a D3-like helmet because you have no clue what you are talking about.
