I like my Shoei. (X-11) It is very nice.

I would really like to try an AGV. I think the inner liner material is superior to the Shoei stuff.

Can't comment on the Shark

True, just a lil hint. when i put on the shark it fit more snug. So different helmets fit different. I wear a XL in the suomy helmet, to me it just did not fit right. The x11 i wore a Large in. Out of the 3 the shark was for me. Your mug will tell you which fits besst, which is more comfy

old cartoon. they lived under the sea and had a snorkel that faced forward. but when they would haul it would turn around and help propel them. the snorkel looks like a shark helmet.

keep the helmet for 7 days and then return it?

Ok so you can by a helemet keep it for 7 days and then return it?
what do they do with the used helmet?
Clean it and put it back on display?
Oh! no I am not buying a helmet at that place, someone knows how that works?

I am kind of disgusted with that, not even thinking what if the helmet was droped.

Please someone must know what do they do with the returned helmets

well any helmet you try on off the shelf let alone buy off the shelf has been put on hundreds of times. but if you buy a helmet and feel that it isnt for you then they will let you return it. its not race in the thing and drop it and they will give you back your money. if its damaged its yours. you must return it in the condition in which you bought it

Ok but keep it for 7 days and ride for 7 days sweat of who knows head.
no!

You can drop a helmet and no visible damage can occur and I know the helmet from the shelf it is put on hundred of times but not gone on rides for seven days in Houston summer time 100+ degrees and that is ok with you?

not trying to argue with you I am just trying to find the answer, what do they do with the used helmets?

special orders they send back. and if you keep it for 7 days and wear it for 7 days it wont smell new anymore. but how many people do you think have gone into a store after riding in that 100 degree weather to try on a helmet with that sweaty head? do you not buy shoes because other people have tried them on with thier fungus feet? its not bad to be a germaphobe. i see where you are coming from.

same here, other than the vision thing, i love my shark!!
