The one that starts!
Nice, one of my first helmets was the Shark 'Foggy' replica. Back then it was one of the lightest, comparable to an Arai. Things do move on don't they!

First one I got was Shoei.
This was 11 years ago, had several models since, all Shoei ;)

I would argue that Shoei is the best brand, as much as person next to me wearing Arai.

Dont believe in the 'best one'. Its the case of familiarity and individual preference.

Thats exactly why I would never buy a helmet without wandering round the shop for 20 mins!
One of my faves for all day comfort was the old Suomy Gunwind.

Shoei, Arai and AGV are all up there for sure. I have had AGV Ti-tech, AGV GP-tech and this is the AGV Pista-GP which is really light and comfortable. The thickness and fitting of the visor is un-real :cool:

I remember my first full face helmet....£25 or there abouts. New Suzuki 500 £630. No doubt the cost of both the helmet and bike have increased slightly :)
