what? are you too good for your local shop?
Well I guess it's good we have a website then....

Don't have any in stock, but I know we can get any FNAs, Sweets, Shred Ready, WRSIs and Predators.

My recco would be either the FNA or the Sweet.

And I heard a rumour that if you give TonyM some rough man lovin he might even give you a deal

I sure as hell ain't no Floaty22... he'd be keeping word of TonyM's man lovin all to himself since he enjoys it so much...and now that he's a college grad, Johnny'll have plently of time for Tony's "Pickle Salad"

Seriously though, give him a call at the shop (1.800.4CORNERS). I'm sure we can ship sumthin to ya and since you're outta state, you're tax free.

I picked up a Sweet from CKS during their sale in Aug and it's..well, pretty sweet. I know people who picked up the snowsports version (basically the same but with a goggle loop) and they're using it for double duty.

I'll Give you Punks Baseball Bat Lovin'

Hey Dano, Sure enough smack talk when all ya wanted was a little direction. I'll deal with the kids later. Here is what I know. Sweet does indeed make a very nice full face that we are stocking in 08, it comes in 2 shell sizes, either red, white or black, and sells for $359. Predator is making a nice full carbon called the Six that sells for $239, comes in black or white, and looks really good, though I have only seen the prototype, we will be getting those in 3/1/08. Then, both WRSI and Shred Ready are going to have a full face, I have not seen the final product yet but we are planning on selling those as well. They will be a plastic shell with removable face guard and will sell for $100-$180. I too am going to make the move to a full face this season and am undecided which one to go with though I am leaning toward the Sweet or Predator. Drop in and check em out, bring your girlfriend in for a discount.

-Hey there stormy weather. I ain't out the asian "bush" yet.
-As for the underground pickle salad market, I think that's been cornered on ebay. Listed under "Christmas BMX bicycle" or "Small ride for children". HA!
-Oh yea TM, I roosted it up today on a four hour by the lower Bolan meadows. I talked to the san juan sasquatch, he wants to know why you don't call him anymore? He wants to give you a unicorn T-shirt for christmas.
-Yea, Dano, leave it to Matt to start some shit huh?. But while the water is solid, might as well. Hopefully this snowpack continues...Johnny

I have an FNA x-stream full face helmet. I think the FNA's are great helmets. Well tested and bomber.

The sweet helmet appears to have upped the ante by fixing a few of the minor problems with the FNA, namely holes for hearing by the ears and holes for you voice to be heard by the mouth. While the sweet is the most expensive, its also nice and has the most bells and whistles.

I haven't seen the WRSI model, but they come in much cheaper and the impact foam designs that they have are attractive as well. Probably worth a look.

So... FNA... old reliable. Sweet... expensive and fancy. WRSI... bargain.

All should keep your teeth in you mouth where they belong.
