FF? What options have you considered?
Obviously, the range of options in quality as well as coverage are considerable.
I've ridden in a 1/2 helmet, 3/4, and FF.... never tried a modular.
I would have given a modular a try except every one of the things I have been around are noisy as heck. I like the idea; just haven't been convinced it's a reasonable compromise in safety.
Not to mention the pivoting mechanism has to live somewhere, that I would rather have protection for my skull. The hinge has to be of some mass and size, which means it has to compromise the layer of crushable foam at that point. -- I envision it as similar to putting a stack of quarters in the foam, somewhere around my temples.
Are there any racing organizations that allow modular helmets?
