HJC or Icon?

Which helmet do you prefer? I saw a $279 Icon helmet for $99 and that's a steal. It's brand new online. I wear a HJC and it's cool, but wanted to check to see which one you prefer.

both about the same imo. personally id go with the icon, all icon use the same visors, and they change out very very easily. the hjc have like 987987099 types of visors and they all suck to remove.

The Scorpion EXO-1000 is not less than $200 as stated above. The 700 is (and the 400 is even less, ~$120-130).

The Scorpion EXO-700 line of fiber/kevlar was rated #2 under a $600 Arai! I've now owned two Scorpions and can share they have the the best fit, ventilation and are very quiet in my experience. If you hate the way all other visors attach, you will love the quick latch lock and the new light sensitive auto darkening visor. Oh yeah... they won't fog either!

The new EXO-1000 has a full air bladder that pumps up like a Nike Shoe to give you a perfect fit everytime.

All those features and less than $200 with graphics!
It's about time someone incorporate my ideas. I had this ideas for ages.
Where do I get one?
