Hey Guys,

Well it's time to buy a new helmet... been scrutinizing over it for a while... I believe I have it narrowed down to 3. Although Im pretty much leaning towards the OGK Im not thrilled about sending money to someone I dont know in Japan and waiting 3 weeks.

So thoughts? Experiences? Other suggestions to totally confuse me?? :lol

If youre considering an AGV you gotta go for a Ti Tech:fact

It depends on your head size and the type of fit you want. The Arai will fit "snug" and will 90% probably fit you no matter what,the AGV will either fit really well(alot more snug than the Arai aswell),or it wont-simple as that:yesnod

All the best,

Okay, I just got done using my friends helmet. Its a Suomy. I just bought the Arai Wraith, Brand New and it's not even nearly as comfortable as my friends Suomy. My advice to you is to go to a dealer and try some of these on, because my Helmet looks awesome and has great ventilation but its not as comfortable as my friends Suomy. So go check some out before you drop $500 on a new helmet.

That OGK looks tits man, i wouldn't worry about the sending money thing. Lots of people send money to sellers on e-bay and elsewhere in the world without any problems. It's the way business is done nowadays. BUT I WOULD make sure that it fits you comfortably before sending my hard earned $$'s . See if you can find one and try it on..(Friends acquaintances etc,) failing that ...may the force be with you!

I've got a FF4 gp (hislop rep) and it's a beautiful helmet fits a little larger then an Arai, I just bought an AGV Ti-Tech (VR 46) and must say it has to be one of the nicest helmets.

My wife ordered my OGK from the UK without a problem from a place called Dexdirect. I'm not loving the Suomy the way you have to change visors to me is awful + I found them to fit really small nice designs though.

PS:While YEAH its natural for companies to plug their own products,it was also comparinig ALL helmet makes as theyre the distributors for them aswell:fact And YES there was some very disturbing results:no

Don't forget they're blowing these ff4-polen's out for $199, regularly $450. Little heavier than the gp, but for $199 it's well worth it...
