This is because I can't drop my jaw and suck in huge air when my body is really exerting effort. The chin guard that comes with the cage doesn't really give a huge breathing room; just so-so.
Easy solution, get a bigger cage. Or if you're not in a league that requires it, take off the chin cup. Just make sure the cage is fastened to the helmet with J-Clips properly without any "hang". Keep the cup in your bag just in case.

I went to a larger cage this summer and it works great. I had to try on a few to make sure it wasn't going to smack into my chest when I look down. The Bauer Reakt was the best for me, plus the lightest and thinnest.
