yeah it was less expensive, but i read a lot of good reviews on it. in this case it was purely vanity because i really didn't like a lot of the hjc helmets that actually had the right color scheme...the ones they had in the store to match were downright ugly.
. unfortunately i have a small head too, and the selection in the store wasn't that great.
As far as the protection, it doesn't feel cheap (and i've felt some cheap ones..THH for example), and has padding similar to my old grey and black HJC CS 10. My sister just got a Scorpion EXO, and it's way more padded than either of our old HJCs, but was still reasonable at about $200, so I might upgrade if i find one i like. but i'd say it looks and feels like my hjc, but it's never been tested in a crash
