    Best Helmet/neck brace combo

    after coming off my ski at over 80 twice and somehow avoiding the er room twice i dont think my luck will last forever. My ski will now be capable of much faster than it has already been so when screwing off at full tilt if i do come off i want to be as safe as I can be. What do you guys recommend for Helmets and neck braces?

    take a look at the jettribe gear. http://store.jettribe.com/other/
    you can also use a mx style helmet and a leatt neckbrace, some cc racers here in europe
    use them.

    While the Bell Transfer 9 is technically a DH MTB helmet, many guys use them in freeride/freestyle because they are relatively cheap and very light!!

    The JetTribe is purpose built to be a PWC helmet but its not cheap. JetTribe also sells neck-braces...so does SummitRacing.

    BTW: If you put back to the OEM ride plate and pump, I don't think you will have ejection problems any more. How much boost are your shooting for?

    my concern without a neckbrace is the bucketing issues. i can live with some broken limbs and what not, but my neck is what concerns me coming off at these speeds.

    Yes but if you don't make it to 90 you will need to stay far away from sharp metal objects... So its a wash.
