what he said, but let me add;stoneloco808 said:all i can say the best helmet is the one that fits snug and comfortable. i hope you tried on that type of helmet and knows how the fit and feel of the helmet.
different brands, have different shapes......
I liked a Shoei, but I could never get them to fit comftorbly, tried on an Arai, fit oh so comftorble, and knew that I'd halfto save a little longer to get it, don't sacrifice anything when it comes to choosing comftorbility and safety.
And wear the helmet your thinking about for about 10 minutes in the shop, to make sure they're are no pressure points, that would suck to realize your helmet doesn't fit right the next day when your on a long ride :cuss
FYI: Arai has a few differnt head shapes you should try on before making a final decision, like signet, quantum, and another.....And go as small as possible without any pain, Arai helmets break in more then any other
