Your Bilt helmet is better than any Icon. Icon makes terrible products.
I believe HJC even makes the shells for Bilt (CG housebrand), at least they did for Cycle Gear's old brand 707.

Remember you can prob recoup some of the money on the new helmet by trying to sell the Bilt too, unless you wanted to keep it.

Yea im keeping the bilt helmet just in case my girl wants to ride. It has that air pump in it so it fits her perfectly since she has long hair and all. Its a good helmet I just need to get a second helmet and i might as well get something worth while since i ride almost every day.

I have a Shoei X-11 that I could sell you for 200 bucks. It is size large and used a few times only. That helmet would beat any of the options presented in this thread, even if used.

I don't know which MH vendors carry Scorpion, but I'd check first.
2 Wheel Toyz blew CG out of the water on the price of my Shoei RF1000.
