Did you pay the 162 or the higher price? I still curious what the deal is. Wonder if it were a mistake or if they had like 50% off already clearance items for a limited time.

I got mine for $132, I think it's a team yellow. My head measurment seemed to work with a L or a XL, XL was available. My Arais have all been L. I'll find out Monday how it fits in comparison and post up.

My helmet just arrived. Manufacture date is 11/2005. Good for a couple of years on the street tho'. Tight as fit ... my son assured me that's the way it should be when new.

I'm glad I paid so little for the new Suomi ... more wind noise than I've had before.
