I have just bought snowmobiles and are looking for some advice on some helmets. Anybody have some good suggestions for reasonably priced helmets? I have used some in the past and I am looking for a good one with ventilation and anitfogging lenses.

Buy something good!

If this is a sport you want to stick to, go Modular, for the ease, convenience, and excellent ventilation and anti-fogging features. As I stated in another helmet thread, it's the best money I've spent on the sport, hands down!

i prefer to see where i am going, so i spent the money to do so, remember you get what you pay for.

I prefer one with a heated shield myself. since Iam a heavy breather and I have trouble with fogging.

HJC makes a good helmet ,I use one myself and I love it . ski doo modulars are an excelent anti fog helmet but I have seen one brake in a crash . I have always had my concerns about that and belive me it is a shady design.

Ditto: I think the earlier modualrs were a great start to an awesome helmet concept, but i'm not too confident in their strength. I would say today's modulars are a pretty good bet though. Like someone earlier posted, i think you'll get what you pay for. Don't be a cheapskate:D

How effective are the heated face shields. I have very little fog problems with my current closed face helmet. However, my father is constantly fogging his up. Should he look into a heated face shield?

Heated shields are ok ,my dad uses one but a good breath box in your lid will be fine. Plus you dont have the worry about trashing a big$$$$ shield .Oh yeah I had one and never bought another, so take it for what its worth .

I use a BRP modular helmet and never needed a heated visor, even in extreme cold temps. Just make sure there is good seal between breath mask, and your face and it just fine, it is also nice to have a built in sunshield for those bright sunny days. Look on ebay you can find new ones in the box from a dealer for $180 - $250.

Ditto to FBIs thoughts! I forgot to mention that built in visor. It is another nice feature at your fingertips on the go with the modular:D

i have 3 skidoo modulars. best dang helmets ive ever had bar none

Ski Doo Modular all the way. Ive never had any problems with fogging up or anything to that matter. They are a bit exspensive, but you'll never have to buy one for a long time.
