HOLY SHIT. (Idon't like to swear) . You want the best helmet availible , Buy an Arai. That was painful reading this. Too much crap and for to long to change my mind. Your head is worth ,what you pay for !
You wear a $100 helmet you have a $100 head.

I didn't find it dry at all. I thought it was rather interesting. Kind of like reading an episode of Mythbusters.

Yeah it was interesting. My next helmet will be an Arai. You only get one head and brain until science perfects that transplant too. Might as well protect your noggin in the mean time.

I think it is all about fitment. Shoei and Arai tended to run a bit narrower so since I have a wider head this was not an option at all. For street I run with an Icon helmet. On dirt I have a Fly Racing one. Both work well and fit great. You just have to see which fits your head best.

I got a SHIFT AGENT for mine it is comfy to me. Looked at the fly racing helmets but ended up getting mine on closeout at rocky for almost half price for my b-day. I liked the Arai jolly roger helmet but the budget at the time wouldn't allow it.
