Always been Arai, until 2 years ago and switched to Shoei.

Much happier with the comfort, weight and visor mech.

Had an Arai, but switched to Shoei last year as my glasses wouldn't fit properly in any of the new Arai helmets. Have to say it is probably better than my Arai, definitely better visor mechanism

I tried a few on today.
Favourite is the AGV Corsa R.
The Shoei was arguably the most comfortable, but the Large I tried seemed to have a really big shell.
Just need to haggle a bit because I fancy the VR46 blue one, and the visor is £82!

Have always had Shoei. Got an AGV as a spare and its much noisier and the paint quality is nowhere near as good

The helmet is £699!  Not sure I'm willing to pay the extra £150 for the VR homage!

Infinity have some good discounts on at the moment

I also just got an Xlite X802-RR for a very good price, only drawback is it is a bit bling as it is the DK Moto3 champ rep

Feeling smug :)
