Personally, which ever fits better should be a first choice, then consider graphics as secondary.

The only thing you would not be able to tell while in a store is how much noise it makes in the wind. It's really hard to tell if a helmet is a good fit for another person... Have you tried them on?

I really liked the Arai RX-7 until I bought one. I can't wait to go back to Shoei. I have a melon for a head and the Arai fits...but there's too much going on with it and it's really quite noisy. I think my next lid will be an X-11.

I've got em both, and I like em both. I've got a HUGE Mellon head. I agree with Duc Man on the RX7 being loud, but it is noticeably lighter than the X11. Build quality on both helmets are superb.

I just recently tried on a ton of different helmets and the one that fits me best is an Arai profile with the long oval fit. I bought one and love it. If you have a round head supposedly the arai quantum is for you.

in all your trying did you find one suitable for a flat head.........most lids come down too low so not much vision bettween eyes and the top rim of lid openning
