I was very partial to scorpion helmets for fit/price. My first was an hjc, and frankly it didnt fit my head shape. I bought a shoei last year, and ended up buying another cause I liked it. Now I guess Im hooked.

hjc is a great helmet for the price. for the price of the helmet you are looking for you can find some closeouts like this one and come out with a better helmet. not saying to get this brand, as they all fit differently, but search because you can always find bad deals. i personally rode with a kbc for a long time and i really loved the helmet. im partial the agv's though.

and a bell star for like 10 more bucks than the hjc but with a savings of 350 bucks

I think HJC and Scorpion are opposite ends of the spectrum fit-wise.
I have a big head (for my size) and HJC fits perfect.
Can't even get my head into an XL Scorpion.

HJC is comfy and roomy, but a bit heavier and not as quiet as a Shoei.
Like the others said, good bang for the buck.

the bell star is 100 grams lighter than the helmet you were considering. and 60 grams lighter than the shoei rf1100. the corsair weighs in at 1758 grams.

good luck

The issue with Bell is finding a shield readily available.
The CL16 is a great helmet for the price range, just make sure it fits your head and is sized correctly.

I was planning on purchasing a CarbonFiber HJC. was hoping it would significantly cut down on the weight. Anyone ever have experience with them?
