[br]i have a polaris modular. don't ever wanna go back to the full face. i love mine.
some of the GMAX's are better than others. they made them cheaper this year and the breath mask is kinda like a full face's. not near as nice as the rubber polaris/skidoo ones. but my favorite thing is the built in sunglasses.
this isn't true. Lazer used to make a modular that was snell rated.Originally posted by Octane
[br]I would pass on the modular. I personally wouldnt wear a helmet that doesnt carry a Snell rating. No modular helmet has ever been able to pass the Snell test. Consider the fact that the only thing that holds the front of the helmet closed are 2 little plastic hooks. If you go over the fars and do a faceplant, its very possible that the hooks will fail and the front of the helmet will pop open, making your face vulnerable to serious injury.
IMO, the negatives outweigh the positives. Im not willing to sacrafice protection in order to get the convenience of a helmet the folds up in the front.
