Shoei X-11

After looking at all the high end helmets, with the help of a veteran rider, I determined the Shoei X-11 fits my head shape the best. Which one do you think I should get. I am looking at the Silver/Black/Red Vermeulen 2. Any special editions you don't see often that you may know about? I am not really a fan of most Shoei designs. I really Like the black/white Sete Arai Corsair RX7, but it doesn't fit my head right.

Yeah, I f**ked up my crappy KBC with the clothesline.

If you like the silver/black/red vermeulen you might also like the Wayne Rainey helmet which is the same colors but with some white. It would go better with your bike IMO

I'm not totally sure about the feathers thing, but the Norick 5 TC-1 is kinda cool, but the classic look of the Lawson TC-1 is nice too

They aren't the x-11s, they have a slightly different shape to them and my head fits best in the X-11s, if I was going to get a shape that didn't fit my head very well I would get a RX7. Model is very important. This can be seen the most in Arai, which makes each model designed for a different head shape.

I have a Scorpion. I think they are just as good as Shoei and a lot cheaper.

fit best on my head = Shoei X-11, choose one of them. Fit is most important, not cost or design.

You are correct. I should have been a little more detailed. What I meant was Shoei and Scorpion both fit me perfect and both are DOT Snell rated. Only Scorpion was cheaper.
