Agreed w the exo; I have a chin guard on mine from a suomy helmet to prevent alot of that flow under the helmet and it still breathes well

Arai's are the bomb...but remember each helmet manufacturer has a slightly different outer and inner shell so what might fit one person like a glove will not fit another person with a different shaped head. I think the Arai RX7 has one of the best ventilation systems out there.

And Scorpion helmets test very well in crash simulations.
