    Re: helmet poll

    my first was a z1r....garbage.....then i bought a shoei and loved it....scraped it at louden and bought an arai and it dwarfed the shoei (fit and comfort....i actually was "fitted" to the arai instead of just picking it off the shelf randomly)

    What is the word on the newer scorpions (EXO 1000 I think?). Lots of gadgets, fiberglass/kevlar shell..

    Seems they are starting to pop up everywhere.

    I'm currently using an Arai, and probably will do that again when it is time to replace.

    L3uddah, if you like Shoei, chances are you will not like Arai, they tend to be shaped for different shape heads. Just my .02

    Re: helmet poll

    im the only one with a suomy eh? nice. My suomy is real light and the padding inside is real comfy. Only gripe is the wind noise. After a while on the highway it gets pretty annoying. but i guess its the trade off for lightweight. i just use ear plugs now

    I love my Suomy. It is the lightest helmet I've worn so far, and I love the Extreme visor. The pads are also very comfy. The vents are ok, but not as good as the ones on my Arai RX7. The Suomy is also somewhat loud, but I always wear ear plugs, so it's not an issue for me.

    Suomy Spec 1R

    Arai RX7 Corsair

    Shark RSR

    Of my three helmets I would rank the Shark as the nicest of them all. It's light and the fit and finish are great. It not quite as light at the Suomy.
