It's nice to know I'm not the only one who likes riding in a skate style helmet.  I've been riding both MTB and BMX in a TSG Dawn Flex for a couple of years now and really need to replace it, but am struggling to figure out what with.  Modern mountain bike helmets have all sorts of new tech that should make them safer, but even more aggressive ones sit so high that I don't feel safe in them and the retention drives me crazy.  I suspect that I will settle on either a light weight full face or a Fox Dropframe eventually, but I struggle to wrap my mind around the price, especially when there's so little independent testing to verify what is actually safer.
