Full face helmets and elbow pads

I'm trying to find a good full face helmet and elbow pads. As I've been researching I've heard good things about the sweet full rocker- currently I wear a sweet helmet but its a small/medium and they don't make that size in the full rocker- how is this fit? Any suggestions for other helmets that would fit a smaller head?

Also checking out elbow pads - any tips would be helpful.

Thank you!

M/L rocker will probably fit you. You may have to do a little outfitting with the pads that are included.

+1 on the sixsixone elbow pads.

I have a full-face WSRI Moment in S/M and I love it. When I've tried M/L helmets from WSRI and Shred Ready, I've found them to stick out too far, slide around, and generally be unwieldy.

I strongly recommend a full-face helmet. I did a stupid tip over in an eddy on a Class II run in a WSRI Current (not full-face). A rock hit me on the ear, where the helmet didn't cover. I ended up with a ruptured eardrum that required surgery to repair it and two years (and counting) of complications from the concussion and ear injury. I also still have a groove in my skull from where the impact shifted my skull plates.
