Exclamation Looking For New Helmets

Size:
female Large and Male XL

Color:
Female: Blue and or black ( to match her 09 ZX6R)
Male: something that matches 675R (Black, White, Red, Carbon Fiber any combo)
we both like solid colors, simple designs.

Price Range:
$300 - $600

Head shape
Female - Semi oval
Male - Oval

Previous lids
Male - HJC RPC10 (too much pressure on forehead), Bell Star Carbon Union (need more view up to when semi tucked, need more racier cut)
Female - Speed & Strenght SS1000 (need more of a race cut helmet hard to full tuck with lid)

Options we like:
SNELL & DOT/ECE (big Must have)
Mirror Faceshield option
Faceshield baggy/carrying case
air vents for TX 100 degree weeks
Chin Curtains
Good Warranty


Is that enough detail or am I leaving something off?

Me too. I wear mine until the liner starts making me look like I have black dandruff. Check out cycle gear they have always done me right. You can always have the helmet you buy airbrushed or something.

Same here!! LMAO!! That's why it's so hard for me to find one, I keep them all for at least 4years and use them for everything that requires a helmet.

How much is Airbrushing? I like the color scheme of the HJC RPHA 11

Revzilla.com has a plethora of helmets, gear etc. Only issue is there are no Revzilla stores here in Texas. They have great vids though and plenty of reviews are available.

As another member mentioned, The Shoei RF1200 is quite comfy.

I have the Shoei-x14 Laverty and I love it...feels extremely light and helps reduce buffeting. Flows a lot of air as well and the padding can easily be removed for washing...can also be readjusted to tilt your helmet, depending on what type of riding you do.

Review can be found here:


(It's ridic pricey tho.)

Cycle Gear. Thereís 3 locations in Houston with a wall of helmets to choose from and they can order anything online and have it shipped to the store or your house.
Iíve had the rf-1200 and x-14. Canít go wrong with Shoei! Best airflow and most quiet and definitely comfortable. If price is a factor, go with the rf if itís not, stick with the 14. The rf padding is just as comfortable as the 14

Yup! I frequent CG a lot...the one near me has a nice selection but it isn't huge. I also like Revzilla because I've shopped there a lot and have "Revzilla Cash" to spend on some purchases

But yes, when I tried on the RF-1200...it felt amazing. I could be wrong but I think I had more "room" to rotate my head from side to side with the X14 and ultimately, this is one of the main reasons I purchased it over the RF-1200....well it was green too!
