What lid has the best air-flow???

I've got an EXO400 and it SUCKS for air-flow. It's pretty quiet and reasonably light but in the summer it's a convection oven.

So...what lids aren known for awesome air-flow that aren't $800??

Thanks!

Step up to the Exo-700....more vents and it's still priced as a Scorpion

I've used Shark RSR2 and Shoei X-11 and they both offer great ventilation. You can get great deals on them now, I've seen X-11 for 450 USD and Sharks for less than that.

x2, and you can close the ports during winter for a warmer lid (I ended up taping them with blue masking tape for wet winter riding)

Also, the "spoiler" on that Gmax 68s makes for some turbulance in cross winds or if looking LorR at high speed...and the light on mine quit working after a few minor drops.

aaron, if you put an arai on your head, you'll walk out with an arai. my profile is great for me. but could flow more air. the corsair is pricey but i bet well worth it. the new shoeis look killer tho.
