    Is you want a larger eyeport the Bell Sport EV is a good option. It makes the helmet lighter as well. I believe CSC sells those for about 450.

    Ah. The one I was looking at was $350. Now I’m looking to just rent one for next weekend and then buying a 2015 helmet for next year.

    Any comments on Open vs. Full Face, I have seen comments somewhere that in airbag equipped cars open face are a better choice because of the danger of the airbag hitting the helmet and driving the head back in a collision.

    On the other hand full face helmets are required for most track events in the UK if you car is an “open car”. My Boxster is in that class (or does the “open” refer to fully open cars with no wind protection)?

    Or is just down to personal preference?

    I did three track days this summer all with open-faced helmets. I liked it.
