"wears"

Just check the mfg date under the padding to make sure.
I've bought new lids that were a few years old for discounted pricing.
Figured I'd smack em on the ground before they expire anyways.

My rps10 is flawless. Like it a little less than my old profile. But never fogs for me.

I have not owned an arai. I have worn them before. I have owned Shoeis, Suomys, and a RPS10 HJC.

I loved the extra comfort of the shoeis, but overall I prefer the lightweight and comfort offered by the rps10.

But I might not have as big of a head as you do...

prob. , i wear XL in both HJC/arai and shoei.

so it's comparing XL in brands and i still prefer Arai, would like to try Shoei, but i don't like any of their paint jobs. dragons and skulls aren't my thing.

But, there is nothing like a new arai. Wether its the paint scheme or just the plushness. Makes me want a new arai just because there is a new purple dragon paint I like, lol

Arai hands down the masters of helmet-making. IMHO, and this is coming from top of the line AGVs, and Suomys, still couldn't match my old Arai Quantum F Doohan.

Anyway, out with the old, in with the new:

Arai Corsair V

Melikey! I am going to thread jack for a second and remind everyone Suomy pulled out of N. America. I've had A of a time finding replacement parts. I may have to switch helmet manufactureres.
