Shoei Rf-1100 or HJC Rpha10?

Looking to get a better lid than my off brand TMZ, looking for less wind noise as possible, no fog, comfortable and light helmet with good air circulation... Read tons of reviews, now trying to decide..... Any feedback welcomed!! Thanks.

Rpha10 is an awesome helmet if your on a budget.

Shoei all the way otherwise!

I've had my rf1100 for a year and it's so comfortable and light it's like there's nothing on your head.

BD, I norm wear a MD, but when I tried on the Shoei seems like a LG feels more comfortable. I'm actually looking for base white with black and/or grey design, trying to move away from the solid colors. You have anything like that? Thanks.

I have the HJC, best helmet I've had so far, I've tried the Shoei and while is superbly nice, the HCJ is more comfortable in my head, and the quality is outstanding.

I think, to my head, the only thing better than the HJC would be an Arai, but whoa, talk about a pretty penny.

I have owned both, my shoei is about 7yrs old (a lot has changed) compared to my new hjc. Hjc was the best bang for the buck, great air flow, no fogging and very light. Make a decision already bro. We need to ride soon.

I only have the matte black in stock. I do stock several solid colors of the RF-1100 . Feel free to stop by and try them all on. Purchase the helmet that fits you the best. All helmets have a different feel, the one that fits you the best is the right choice. Both the Shoei and the high end HJC are great helmets.
