It all depends on the shape of your head, no really

what works for me may not for you or the other way around.
The only thing that has been agreed upon regarding helmets of any brand is:


Now maybe you could take a moment and tell us who you are, and where you're from etc,
in other words please fill in your profile. (user CP)

Man, I'd hate to see how you would react if this had been an emergency.

as you can buy a System 5 and mentioned the price in GBP I will assume you are in the UK. I have had a Schoei and a System 4 and presently have an Arai QuantumF and a System 5 size 61/62. The 5 is the quietest of the lot and is my helmet of choice. I will allways have a full face for winter (wear glasses and need a breath gaurd to stop them getting misty) but there are so many things I like about flip fronts that I will allways have one. Also try Schuberth (who make the BMW helmet) and the new Schoei Multitronic.

If you are passing and think it will fit you can borrow mine - and if you give me enough warning I may even try and clean it ;-/
