No chin guard. In 64 years of riding I’ve never hit the top back or side of head. I’ve dumped chin on road 6 times. Stitches from e-room twice, broke chin once. Search term for ventilated bike helmet with chin guard is “downhill mountain bike racing helmet”. I’ve never raced in my life.
My Fox Rampage helmet is white with yellow letters on the back. I like to be seen if they are going to drive over me. OTOH the two other e-bike riders here wear black or dark gray on black bikes, and a gimme cap instead of a helmet. That urbanite color would fit right in. At least there are LED’s that might work in the rain. My LED bike lights fail once or twice a year due to rain damage. The $280 garmin light+radar is working into the 3rd year.
