The rf1100 doesn't fit me one bit, I tried on today the new RF1200, it fits me but the pressure is intense. I'm still having headaches from it.

That one of a kind love to ride

i've never spent more than $350 for any of my helmets.

Just got great deals on Shoei closeout models on Compacc.com

Chrome shields are not worth it. Unless arai figured out a way to give it a protective coating, the chrome won't last long, get pinholes from cleaning and pitting. I can toss my visors every 5000km cuz I ride a lot on the hwy.
One dark smoke costs 30% less than a chrome... by the time i get the 2nd dark smoke i only paid 20% more than for 1 visor but got twice the fun.

chrome $100
dark smoke $60 x2


How come you want extra cheek pads? I ordered extra ones to fit my XXS head since they didn't offer the xxs helmet i converted it from a xs with the pads.

I'd honestly give one of the guys here a call and we can try to help find the right shape for you, within your price range. I wear the Bell RS-1 and it is hands down one of my favorite helmets; it may be worth trying out if it will fit you properly.

I got an Arai RXQ Dawn from the most recent bike show here in Toronto and after taxes it came to 680 which also included a Visor of my choice for free! .. I also got a 50 Dollar gift card because I spent more then 500 bucks

I call that a win

HJC Rpha10, nice fitment and ventilation a step up from the RS-1 which i both own. Also lighter than the RS-1. Sizing is very similar large=large im a 7 1/4 hat size and bought large on both, i went to the store (after i had bought them) tried out the medium fit perfectly for race setup.

good luck

I think you should look into a K4 EVO. I see them on sale all the time. CycleGear here in the U.S. is currently running a promotion where they're like $150 or something.

I was gonna buy one until I bought my carbon fiber Xpeed XCF3000, which is more of a neutral to slightly round head shape.
