Here's a link to Bell Street Star: https://www.amazon.com/Bell-Street-M...%2Bhelmet&th=1

These are from the family of non-current graphics, but who really gives a rip if you can grab one at half the price. Be careful when shopping though as the vendors adjust the price based on the size as well. Whether you go Bell or Nexx, as long as the lid is comfortable you will not go wrong.

I appreciate your replies, folks.. noggin's story about his Nexx helmet is just impressive!! I mean, it means way more, than the ads and video reviews, you know..
I will go and try both helmets again, just to make sure I am making the right decision when I'll be buying one of those guys.
Thanks...

You know that if you don't read the first two letters, you end up with 'ogle' which is actually quite apt (and ironic) for such an avatar!!

You can always check the Sharp ratings on helmets too.

I just bought a Bell Qualifier DLX - the Bell helmets just fit me great. No gaps all around, no pain.

This one has the MIPS liner, transition shield and built-in mount for my existing COM unit.

I didn't even know Simpson made motorcycle helmets. NEXX makes really nice helmets, I should check them again.

I almost bought a Shark this time around, Skwal 2 for the LED light feature for lane splitting in CA (if it fit) since the Bell Devil May Care wasn't out in MIPS until just a week ago and I was looking...
