anyone else pissed off at those plug in helmets? i take the cord out every time i do something i might fall off. if the least bit of snow gets in there your screwed. right now i took the assembly out of the sled and have it sitting on my desk to unthaw. today i rode home 10 miles from where we ride with frost on the visor. im in the market for a snowcross helmet.

this may be a dumb question but only because I've never used them but do you get any heat on your face from these or doesn't it get that warm I'm useing a TXI and love it but now and then I get air under my chin webbing.

I have on of the original modular helmets from bombardier they rock even at minus 35 no fog. I would never go back to a plugin one. heard the 2nd gen of the modular was not so good though

Same here. And with -25F riding this weekend, I'll be REALLY glad I've got a heated TXi instead of a snocross helmet!

its not the concept of it thats the problem. i love the heated visor, it keeps the frost away. but the problem lies with the connection from the cord to the sled. i get snow in there, it melts, my cord doesnt fit in it. now, if there was a magnet connecting the cord to the sled that would be ppeeeerrrfect. im soo sick of pulling the cord out every time i do something i might fall off.

has anyone fell of when theyre helmet was plugged in? what happened?

mine doesnt work like that. if i fell off either the assembly would rip out of the sled, or my visor would snap
