how much do you want to spend? For around $350 you can get an Arai quantum2 and Soumy spec R1. Both are excellent.

I've had two Scorpions and crashed with one. While considering replacement helmets, I have also looked at the Sharks. Tried one on at Cycle Gear the other day and compared it to a Shoei.

The Shark sits a bit higher in the back, that was the first thing I noticed. If you have issues with your helmet hitting your collar in the back, the Shark is for you. It sits lower in the front, the chin area is huge. The shield is very thick and it is tricky to learn how to put it up and down (no tab like others).

The inside feels like velvet and the helmet feels like a big pillow on your head.

Overall, it fits really well but I just couldn't get comfy with it.

I guess just go to stores and try on the helmet and then buy the want that makes you say "Oh yeah! That's it!"

They said Sharks come out smaller but the medium Shark fit me just as well as the Medium Shoei X11 and RF1000. The Scorpion was also a medium. The Shark and Shoei did feel a bit more snug than the Scorpion which actually felt better. The Scorpion was always a tad too big but small was too small.

Go with the one that fits the best. Try on the helmet and compare with others.

You'll enjoy it more in the longrun and in a crash, it doesn't matter how it went with your bike.
