Motorcycle Helmet opinion

#1 Unread post by Qupanan » Wed Nov 18, 2020 4:27 am

All fellow motorcyclists need your opinion and advice on a new road/race helmet.

I've been wearing a Shark Race R pro. Great helmet a little warm if I'm commuting in slow traffic.

I've tried a few on but not getting anywhere..

I've tried on a AGV Pista, great design and the look but a little uncomfortable. No open close mechanisms. Only pads to block the vents. So on to the Corsa. Still same fitting. Uncomfortable. Want to get payday loan here for it

Suggestions please.

There is nothing "comfortable" about encasing your head in plastic and padding, especially in California heat. Go to a motorcycle gear superstore and wear your top 3 contenders around the store for 10min each and buy the least uncomfortable.
