Before you buy any helmet online. Try your best to find a place where you can try one on. They are all different, and fit different. Makers are constantly changing the padding so an XL in one series of helmet might be an XXL in the next series of the same helmet. Happened to me with the LS2. Shoei, Bell, Arai, HJC all make some nice helmets. Shoei and Bell have always seemed heavy to me.Years ago the Shoei RF105V was my favorite. Now I use an LS2 Valiant convertible helmet. It is a full face and a 3/4 combined. A full face helmet is a PITA at times. Nice to be able to flip it over for better airflow in the heat. And about a million other reasons. If money isn't an issue. And you want the best helmet you can get. Look into Shuberth. They are the most quiet helmet on the market. Very high quality. And priced that way. You will find that helmets are a lot like Oil and Tires. Everyone has their favorite.
