Proper SM helmet.. what do you wear?

Recommended Posts

Alright, everyone knows that wearing a helmet is for your own good but for sm riders it seems that you could get by wearing almost any helmet be it an mx or full face job. I just wanted to get an overview of what everyone sports on their thinker.. my guess is the majority are mx just cuz thats what I wear but it seems like there is a 'crossover' market that is just waiting to be tapped by the manufacturers here..

Tell us what you rock!

I don't have an SM, but do have the S and I tend to ride it like an SM. I bought the Shoei Hornet DS and love it. It was a choice between the Shoei and the Arai XD just based on knowing that Shoei fits me well.

Not that exact paint scheme, but very similar. Matches my yellow bike and blue jacket nicely.

I sport an HJC CL-SP. Bought it because it was affordable. Love the interchangeable shield system, but its a very LOUD helmet. My old cheapo ZR1 helmet was much quieter.

I always wondered if a more expensive helmet was really that much better. BIG price difference between a HJC and an Arai/Shoei.

CLX-4 for the summer. Hopefully it will be replaced by the AC-X3 carbon soon.

I used to wonder the same thing. My previous helmets were all HJC, now that I've worn a shoei for the last three years I know the answer. I would not buy a cheap helmet ever again.

I'm new to riding but just got my Nolan N102. I love that the chin bar moves up. I love the way the strap clicks locked and releases with one finger and I love the integrated tinted shield. Not as comfortable as the Shoei but less expensive. I got a great price thru TT and they took an additional 10% off with the coupon. :thumbsup:

i've always worn mx helmets even on my sport bike. late afternoon rides i need that sunvisor. full coverage also makes me feel too "isolated" (safe?) if that makes any sense.
