Gear What helmet(s) do you wear?

Have recently swapped my HJC IS17 for a Shark Spartan. Tha HJC was a great helmet. Think the Spartan has the edge on it - probably because it is a slightly better fit. Have gone from a medium in the HJC to a small in the Shark. Was amazed how different my bike sounded with a different lid.

So many great looking lids out there - difficult to choose. Even when you think you've made the right choice you never really know till you take your bike for a decent ride. Same with jackets and gloves etc. Can become a very expensive hobby if you're not careful!!!

My new helmet is a Shoei RF-1200 Recounter with the blue iridium visor:

I like the looks of it, it vents great, and it matches my Rev'It Vapor 2 jacket really well. It fits great all around my head, but the wind buffeting noise above 40mph is something I never experienced with my older (and ill-fitting) HJC. It's not bad enough to warrant a chnage, but it was unexpected. I might see if it's possible to bolster the lower pads below my ears a bit, because the wind noise dissapears entirely when I cover that space with my hands.

Lovely looking lid. A great match to your jacket and bike. Love that co-ordinated look!
Had a similar issue with my helmet - a Shark Spartan. Was able to order slightly thicker cheek pads which will hopefully help. Maybe Shoei do something similar?
