I have a schuberth S1. It's the perfect helmet for me. Excellent vision. Very, very quiet and stable @ high speed.
May be a little heavy.
I also have a C2 flip up who is also nearly perfect.
Don't hesitate it's a good choice.

Suggest the following appproach :-

Go to a store such as Hein Gericke and spend an hour trying on the vast range of lids that they usually have on display. I'd agree that ALL new helmets feel a bit strange at first, but personally I found that Arai fitted my particular skull shape a lot better than an Shoei or indeed a number of other brands - and I only discovered this by physically trying a lot of different lids on and trying to feel 'tight spots', 'check for wiggle room', comfort, discomfort, chin clearance, nose clearance, visibility. It ain't a five minute job and it cannot be done via a catalogue or on the interwebby.

They all give a little bit - after a few months of regular use - and the advantage of the more expensive helmets is that you can wash the internals as well as buy new pads and liners to freshen them up.

At the end of the day, the old saying "are you buying form or function?"..factor also comes into play - is the look more important than the technical content? I always smile at bikers who purchase a helmet on the basis of its trendy applied graphics or perceived style content, rather than its ability to protect your brain/head in the event of an accident.

Two simple questions to anyone buying a helmet "How much is your brain function worth to you"? and then "Do you have someone who loves you enough, to feed you baby food through a straw and change your incontinence pants - all because you saved 100 by purchasing a cheapo helmet and then had a quick snog with the tarmac"?


Both the helmets you've chosen a superb quality models, and I would go with the one that fits the most comfortable..

Get a plain design and custom paint it like some of the MV members have done..

It's easier to paint a helmet than buy a new brain !

I've been using the Shoei X-11 Lawson helmet for a couple years. I like it because it is very well vented and I get hot easy. However, it lets noise in with the cool air. I don't think you can have a really quiet helmet that vents really well. I had to sacrifice noice for ventilation.



While I like this helmet I'm still looking at the Akuma Shaolin Dragon Helmet. I'll need to find a dealer first so I can try it on my gord to see if it fits properly. I'm all for function over fashion but this baby may cover both bases.
