Choosing a helmet...

...is killing me, I can't settle on one. Looking at agv, arai, shoei and every other bucket that's on the market. After hours and hours everything is really looking the same with nothing jumping out at me design wise.


Whats your favorite design that is out there for sale somewhere...


<edit>
made up mind....

Re: Choosing a helmet...

I had the same problemo picking a new helmet. I searched and waited for all of 2012 until finally Riders Discount had a helmet blowout for Black Friday week.

my advice is once you see it and your jaw drops, you'll know. spesh if it's on sale.

find the one that fits properly, has good venting, is lightweight and is snell rated. after that, if there's more than one contender, it's cheapest price. who gives a shit what design is on the outside?

set two otherwise identical helmets down. one full price cuz it's got some fancy design on it, the other is 50% off because it's pink with care bears and flowers and shit on it. 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...
