1. Arai Defiant-x
Disclaimer: this is only my 2nd helmet. I decided to upgrade from my first helmet. It was an HJC around 150 bucks.. would hurt my head after about an hour of riding (less if I was wearing sunglasses). After my first hour or 2 in the helmet I kept wondering if it was loose, its not. I just felt that way because there is so much ventilation in this thing I could actually feel it around my head. I thought that was a gimmick. Before I could not leave the vent closed while at slow speeds or stops because it was too hot. I was shocked how cool I remained in the defiant x. Also, I moved my cardo system to this helmet and the sound quality is hugely improved thanks to the tear away foam slots made for helmet speakers. The handmade quality of this helmet blows me away and I am so glad I made the right decision. I think I just became an Arai customer for life. Thank you Sportbike Track Fear for being the only ones who had my color choice in stock!
