Lids with inner visors...

Current lid is EXO1000. I LOVE it but it's time for new...

Any other lids to look at that have a inner visor?

The inner visors on the helmets I've tried were optically distorted...Its looked wavy at some spots, and would probably be annoying as on the road.

Looks like the 1000 is being replaced by the 1100.

Take a look at the Shark Evoline 3. I currently have the Evoline 2 and like it. Will upgrade here in the next year due to age of the helmet.

Don't like modular helmets. Don't like polycarbanate helmets.

I love the convenience, but I understand maximum protection.

You have to understand with me, I come from the Harley world where I ride without a helmet, wear a tank top like a rolling organ donor.

So, this was a great compromise for me to be able to lift it open for cooling purposes.

I can already tell I want to invest in the LIGHTEST, safest full face helmet made. My neck is already sore and I have 220 miles on my Ninja.

Props for seeing the light. I "get" it, but everytime I see someone with no gear other then their fashion accessory leather vest and d ring boots it makes me queasy.

EVERY single person I know who is jacked up or dead from riding a scooter on the street wasn't wearing any gear.

It looks like the 1100 will be my next. Should be everything I have enjoyed with the 1000 but a little lighter.

I'm currently using an HJC IS-16. The visor mechanism and optics are good. Wind noise and ventilation are not as good as helmets at higher price points, but ventilation and build quality is decent for the price. I like the way it looks too.

Currently in the market for either another internal visor or a Shoei RF-1100. Now taking a look at the EXO too.

Use a better lid.

The ones on my Scorpions and Caberg and those i've seen on Bell, Nolan and Schuberth are flawless

Lightest?

Take a peek here:

http://www.webbikeworld.com/motorcyc...et-weights.htm

Safest? That's a tough call. Is a $600 helmet really 3x as safe as a $200 one? Assuming they both carry the same ratings (Snell, ECE, XYZ, M-O-U-S-E), no, it isnt. Is a $600 helmet a fuckload more comfortable than a $200 one? MAYBE. All depends on your head.

A well designed 3-5lb helmet that fits you properly is going to feel a lot better than an ultra-light you have to shove your skull into.
