I have no opinion on brands but i do on price. I bought an hjc 4 years ago for $100. Good helmet but i am looking to replace it already for a couple reasons. Its falling apart, im not saying im rough with it but debris in the face does add up. Second and a big deal to me now is weight. I run a shifter and the g’s to go with it. After a 10 minute race my shoulder/neck are exhausted. Much of this is physical condition but a lighter helmet would help alot.
