Helmet facemask vs chin bar
I'm thinking it's time to invest in a helmet that has face protection, and wondered if anyone can offer advice on merits or problems with wire facemasks, protection bars, and/or chin bars. Seems like face masks would offer more protection, but chin bars wouldn't be in your field of vision and the bars might be stronger in the event of a hard hit. I wear glasses and need to have ready access to them because they fog. I'm leaning toward the Cascade full helmet with their chin bar because it comes in sizes (I also have a small head) and looks to be well constructed - any comments?? I was hoping that WRSI would release their full-coverage helmet, but it seems this might be some time away.
