Re: Choosing a helmet...

I don't have a carbon, but my bell star (m.behavin) is one of the most comfortable I've ever worn. I would buy another bell in a heartbeat. I'm strictly street though, not sure how they hold up on track days.

Make sure, whatever helmet you buy, to hit up the vendors on the forum. Riders Discount in particular can make you cum with the deals they can get for us.

THAT'S the one i'd get. i don't have to look at the outside of it when i'm riding. plus, the thought of passing someone at the track with the gayest helmet ever made would be hilarious...

bell carbon is awesome and it has the best air flow you can get...when you go from wearing the gp tech to the carbon youre gong to be like wtf with all the wind going through your helmet lol

wind noise is about the same with the gp tech noise wise(i use headphones so i could care less)
