Helmet preference

well i been looking into getting a new helmet because the one i have was just a quick buy

i been seeing videos of riders and such and have been looking at their helmet

are there any specifics types of helmet you prefer (not brand)

like for example, the front of my helmet or nose piece is kinda long...are there any type of helmets that have a shorter nose piece?

Best advice I can give you is go try them on at different dealerships and see what fits the best.

I look for
1. Fit
2. Ventilation
3. Sound
4. weight

i have a vendetta....got it because it was cheap and i was talked into more of the safety rating since its dot and snell

now im looking more into something that fits my head on the inside and outside. the vendetta fits good inside but its bulky on the outside and tends to kinda get in the way when i try to turn my head when looking at blind spots

i only use arai, their are plenty of good ones out there for cheaper. and hjc has a new one that we have in stock that has awesome reviews. come by tues and see which style you like and we can fit one to you and get it ordered or if we have one in stock you can leave with it.
