Default Re: Full Face Helmet Recommendations??

I also have a KBC VR-1 and like the fact it fits my oval head with absolutely no pressure points. Shoei helmets don't fit me at all and resulted in severe headaches because of the pressure the thing placed square in the middle of my forehead. That's another thing to check for. The helmet may feel fine while your standing still, but at 60 or 70 mph, that's when the pressure comes on. That was the story with my old Shoei. I have driven all day in my KBC in temps of upper 90's and low 100's and the helmet was always comfortable at speed. It's even black by the way.

seruzawa & sarnali.



I will be looking into both. My Arai just returned from warranty (the pull-down chin spoiler and the trim piece just fell-off) and they put a new one on poorly. Man, it sucks when the company can't get it right. Still love my Arai, but I'm looking. I was once in a BMW dealer when I saw an ad about a particular helmet and asked why they didn't carry it. I was told (all unsubstantiated) that the European manufacturer was involved in U.S. lawsuit and never intended to sell their helmets stateside again. I do know that Europeans' feel we are too sue-happy.

We went through this exercise on 2/24. Here's a link to the thread.

Then as now, the consensus seems to be good fit! For that reason I love my Arai - it fits my blockhead perfectly and is worth sacrificing the arm chaps to come up with the extra bucks.

Seems there is a new kid on the block with full-face helmets. The EXO-700 and EXO-400 from Scorpion Sports. http://www.scorpionusa.com/index.html

DOT/SNELL ceritified ,seem to have all the proper technolgy, prices ranging from $130 -$200. I've never seen one and other than what's on the net, know nothing about them, but they might be the young upstart that ends up knocking over the big boys. Finding one may be a problem. Only one delaer listed for Colorado.

I've had good luck with Shoei, but any brand that fits the best works the best.
It's a cliche! The best helmet you could get is the one that fits your head!

You better consider such things too before you have an eye for your desired helmet.

Does it meet the DOT standard? Is it quality-made? Does it fit your style? Does it offer full protection?

Hope it'll help!

I wear an HJC modular - full face protection with the ability to open the front at stops. A little bit noisier than the full face, but not very noticable with a tall windshield.
