there are plenty under 300 on e-bay, but you gotta get what fits.. Scorpions suck for my head shape, I'm in love with Icon helmets though. Try on many, find what fits, and purchse one New In the Box on E-bay.
unless you're going top shelf, you cant really tell the dif. I tried on a ton of helmets last time i went lid shopping and since i was just gettin something to last me until i ride more this spring i didnt try on anything over 250. Its all personal preference really M8, all helmets are supposed to protect your noggin (and as long as they're snell you're good to go) but the best one for you is the one that fits you the best.
[email protected] can't keep HJC straight from HJC... They both seem to have a weird shape tho.ugh Don't fit me at all. One I tried was sloppy front to back, and was short top to bottom. Instead of the bottom part of the padding coming to my jawline, it mashed my ears.
Yeap, with the scorpion, the Small was WAY WAY tooo small. But the medium ended up moving around on my head after the first month of wear. With the ICON, the small is comfortably tight. Differnt manufactures have both different sizes and shapes. Try 'em on then when you know what works, snipe e-bay.
well my lid I got when I was riding the 250 was a HJC CL-14. The fit was ok I guess, but the venting was horrible. I literally couldn't tell the difference between open and closed. I hear a lot of HJC are like this... I really need some decent venting for this southern heat during the summer.
Also, I really can't try any on b/c the local shop here doesnt really carry anything under 400 dollars except HJC's.
I'll do some review search and see what I can't come up with. I DID like the KBC's but I read some reviews on them and heard they have sucky venting too. Icon aprently has crappy protection too. Anyone konw anything about those rumors?
WOW some of the stats towards teh bottom on the right (near the "the rules rule" section I believe) and VERY surprising. Some of the higher end helmets did worse than the no-names, or lower end brands.
