    Fresh Air ventilation helmets

    Had one before my Simpson. Not bad just wasn't a fan of the side draft that I had. Had good air movement though. I'd i was to get another, it would be the top mount.

    On edit... If you're laying out that kind of coin on a carbon helmet, go put your head In a Simpson Vudoo. For a little more you will get a bad ass helmet. Lite, great view, excellent airflow throughout the helmet and very well built. You won't be disappointed.

    So you had the OS20? I like the top mounts also but not sure what my clearance will be to the cage top. I am thinking the top or topside mounted will be better than the one mounted on the jaw area. For just A little more $$$ is the story for everything it seems. I found an impact OS20 for $549. so thats a good discount

    Yes it was a side draft carbon fiber os20. I'm guessing that for the 549$ it's the fiberglass Version which is substantially heavier. I think it still has the same air cavities for the flow which is good but the side draft would make the hose get caught up in the cage. I thought the same thing about the top mount as you did but after getting it, I should have went top.

    same one except the shell material is different like you said. So you liked it? but not as much as a top mounted?
    were you able to velcro mount a dust skirt underneah it?

    Yes. Skirts fit fine. It's a nice helmet. The side draft would put the hose right into the b pillars of our car. Got tired of having to wrestle with it when looking over my shoulders. I was at GBI one weekend and tired on one of their vudoo's and I was sold. Not that the Impact is not nice, just not as nice and was tired of the hose issue.
    My Impact dealer is back on Monday. If you pm me then, I'll send him a text and see what my price would be for you. I'm sure he could hook a brotha up.

    I am going try and find a place locaaly that sells them so I can test fit it just to see if I like the fit and get the correct size
