all great helmets, you need to go try them on, from my understanding each helmet fits a little different.


try them on, once you decide on the brand you want ask to look through a helmet catalog and pick the color scheme you want, and then go from there boss.


I would highly recommend going to Motorcycles Unlimited off of 1960 right pasr kuykendahl and ask for Suzanne. She is a helmet expert and can get you in a lid that will fit your head perfect.

that is bad advise. Everybodys head is shaped different. All the helmet manufactures shape the liners different. shoei fits my head like a glove and arai fit like . best advise is to try on every thing.

i use to have a kbc before i got my shoei rf1000. after shoei,i never went back to anything else. but shoei and arai should cost as much as each other and have the same great quality.
