Thats a toughie,, more personal preference,, I have the HJC AC-X1 and like it,, I'd like the CF version of this and I'd like to see the Hebo CF helmet,, heard it was way light!

I have an AIROH.
The best helmet I have ever owned. May be pricy, but well worth it.
It's amazing no one sells them here in the U.S.

Lookey here.........

Whatever kind/ brand you get, you'll probably want one that is "Snell" rated. There also is a European standard ECE 2205, I'm not sure if that number is correct. The snell helmets are tested to a higher standard than DOT helmet. The Snell foundation updates their standards every five years so a helmet with a 2005 sticker may be only a few months old or it could be 4 1/2 years old. I have an HJC, Snell rated, that has been good for me, I might get a Bell next time around.

try an Arai. They are light, they make different shapes for different shapes of head, round and oblong.
