hjc vs shoei

Trying to decide on a helmet still currently have hjc. Was wondering how they stand up vs shoei. A lot of people have did the rpha is an awesome helmet how is compared to shoei?
Would anyone choose it over shoei? I'm thinking between the shoei gtair or hjc rpha or is-16 i think.

Not going to speak to helmet quality, but will say that Shoei and HJC are really designed for two different head shapes. HJC tend to be more for a round head, while Shoei tends to be for a more oblong head. This should be one of the primary things you consider, because helmet fit is paramount to proper protection.

Crash tested the rf1100 and I have had a couple cl-16s

Work fine. I like the comfort/weight of the hjc, planning on ordering a hjc rpha from house of paint this week hopefully

I have a RF 1000 and a rps 10. I prefer my HJC, the padding has seemed to stand up better and last better.

I strongly agree with others about getting the one that fits your head perfectly. Besides, you can't go wrong with those brands.

+1 on the rpha. I crashed tested one last year in a 40 mph lowside, no major injuries(to head) only got up a little shook up and disoriented. Sensation passed in less then 5 min. Bought another rpha ro replace it. Fit on me personally is great, and with all venrs open the helmet breathes really well.
