AGV 5 Continents

Just bought the AGV 5 Continents GP-Tech helmet for my wife. She said it is amazing "feels like my head is surrounded by pillows"(she had an old HJC). My question is what other helmets are as comfortable as this one? I currently have a Shoei X-11 and it is pretty comfortable but looking for a little more comfort. Please share your thoughts with me Thanks.

I have heard good things about Bell Star CF line. The guys at 2 Wheel Toyz said that they were good helmets. Any thought?

There is nothing as comfortable as the GP-Tech line. I have had a few Shoeis, Arais, and HJCs and have worn a friends Bell Star a few times, none of them are as comfortable as my GP-Tech was.

They are all very nice helmets. There is only one place in town that you can go to try them all on and compare. Can anyone guess where?

Arai. Their helmets are like armored pillows. The key is the cheek padding; Arais have the most I've ever seen. The visors are a bit of a though.
