came from a shoei to an arai viper gt. its a decent helmet but sort of wish i got an x-spirit 2 instead
I've got to buy a new helmet, since I couldn't post my old one back to Oxford from Lebanon. My old one was a Nitro (70 quid in the shop, 50 online). It fit well and had a nice design, but had a ratcet strap which REALLY pissed me off, so irritating on the neck (though it was more practical than a Double-D).
How much better are expensive Arai/Shoeis? They don't seem to do much better than cheaper brands on the SHARP tests, so is it just comfort? Because my Nitro, and the Ducchinni before it, were perfectly comfortable (apart from the Nitro's strap).
And also, can you switch straps easily?
I've been riding 3 months-already on my third helmet :P
Decided to buy the Chaser small again, same as my old one just a different pattern.
£249, compared to £330 last time.
Been looking into jeans and there are at least 10 different makes out there, confusing....
