Nevermind, it's only in Red White Blue and only in Xsmall. Sorry, I edited this after....

I have 10 helmets... Icon (2), HJC(2), Shoei, Arai, Scorpion(2), KBC, and a Sparx

the Sparx is something I just wear when I know I am going to be just riding around on the motard locally... it's pretty noisy at any speeds over 55/60 and for some reason the neck pads slide out consistantly...

as for as the most comfortable helmet i have... it would be my HJC (diablo) or my Scorpion (exo400) custom paint
yes, even more comfortable than my arai and shoei (which i actually never wear, they just sit up on the mantle

and my KBC is the most uncomfortable... the pads are so hard


hope that can help your decision a little

good luck with purchasing a helmet...

Hmmm, interesting numbers. I got my HJC for $130.

You know Racer X, ASKING every question with cynicism and ANSWERING every question with sarcasm doesn't make you right. State your opinion and the facts that back that up, but you don't need to be a about it and talk down to everyone else.
hint: those are ECE certified, not DOT/SNELL, your results may be diff.

Funny, open up a men's magazine and what do the women in the articles look like, not like the one you married.

Funny, open up a car magazine and what are they writing articles about, not the Hyundai you drive.

Funny, open up a karate magazine and who are they interviewing, not the yellow belts.

Funny, open up a music magazine and who's got the center spread this month, not Hot Pocket Joe from open mic night at the coffee shop.

Life can be funny that way sometimes.

lame comparison.

those ZR1 lids recomended by motorcyclist mag. are only ~$100-150 you'd think the mag. staff would be all over that, but they're not.

btw, the ONLY dist. for those lids is also the largest advertiser in that mag. CRAZY.

I've gotta agree with X on this one. I've ridden for 25 years on and off and owned a LOT of helmets. The helmet I currently own is also the best. I have had Bieffe, Bell, HJC, etc. My newest one is a Shoei X11. It's not only the safety features but the comfort and fit. If you ride to the corner store once a month, then a sh^#@% helmet is okay. If you log around 800-1000 miles a month (like I do), not only do you want peace of mind with safety, but you want comfort. I owned my HJC Paradox only until I could afford my Shoei. Yes, it's a $650.00 helmet (OBVIOUSLY THE SHOEI), but my head and the long-term comfort are worth every penny that I paid!
