I'm really interested in the new Arai XD helmet. It's basically a off-road helmet with a faceshield. Looks like the perfect dual-sport helmet!

At the price, I'd hate to wear it for serious off-roading and get it scratched up.

I always wondered about trying a full face shield for offroad. I'd imagine it'd be a whole lot hotter inside the helmet, but wonder if fogging problems would be better or worse?

I'm mostly interested for the protection from branches and leaves cutting up my nose an upper lip.
