That's a paintball helmet and probably doesn't provide that much protection unless you are being fired at by paintball guns.

Even then he's shirtless and doomed.

i already killed all my brain cells with pot. i wouldn't be protecting much. hehehehe and yea,  with the visual restriction a helmet like that would have, i think youd end up falling more. and when you did  fall youd have pretty much no protection.

Yeah.,.. bam from urban freeflow.

I think having a unique thing that you do is kind of in the spirit of parkour.. thought a paintball mask might get you kicked out of more places and the cops called on you. After using it a while you wont even realize its there... I learned that from my lacrosse helmet with the cage.

One of my unique things is from now on whenever I do a show (music-wise... and if I ever get to do a show) I wear my flyers jersey... I might do that for parkour now to... I'll be a real flyer ;)

lolz haha ya i definately fell more there was kind of a weight issue lol. but it looks awesome. I might wear it more but i just thought it was funny because one guy told be to be safe. so i asked if the helmet counted towards it lols. Ya thats a good idea for the the poll. that thing was pretty high!!! It most likely wont be the last time so i will keep that in mind Fox! Man i just wish i could find some people in fort wayne. i met up with one guy but he is moving once school starts.... so much for that. Not to big of a deal he was a total nugget any way!

They don't look bad, but its highly not reccomended. It restricts vision and makes your head....bigger lol. Just imagine if your trying to roll but you end up hitting your head on the ground and it messes up your roll making you fall off the edge of something.

It could just be that I'm missing tons of sarcasm here, but...

The reason why, as a traceur, you shouldn't use helmets, gloves, pads, crash mats is because you should be training yourself to be self reliant. If you are doing something that is dangerous enough to merit a helmet (crash mat, pads, yada yada) you shouldn't do the movement.

ya Bro you are definately missing a ton of sarcasm. well except the part about it looking cool, but it certainly isn't for safety.

I agree. Looks like some sarcasm, but also some seriousness.
