I am sure they will have the Scorpion 1000 at the motorcycle show. That will be the chance to test fit and check it out.

I am not sure any of them are completely safe.. every crash i have had. i have always gotten my bell rung.. cuz i always hit my head.. but i know what the scene would have been without any helmet.. thats why i always wear mine if i am just going across the street..

trust me ... its not worth it. I have the chromatic visor, and yeah, it tints up in the daylight, but really not at all enough to do anything. i still have to put my hand out to cover the sun! it sucks!!!!
I got a fever....................and the only more cowbell!
