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
Who is your contact in Japan? I know there was a guy on ebay that was selling our exact helmet. Do a search for Helmet_Maniac :yesnod A few members on here have bought from him without a problem and he killed the price that I paid from the UK.


EDIT: he isn't selling at the moment... but you could always contact him and ask.
Here is his ebay account... http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback&userid=helmet_maniac&iid=

Just the info I was looking for... that very same guy is my contact... I emailed him directly. Good to hear everyone got their helmet safe and sound. I think that sets it in stone... Im ordering!! :yesnod

Other then look wise how does the helmet perform and fit?

It's a BADASS helmet for sure. It's very plush on the inside, just like the latest Shoei's and Arai's. Fit is excellent, I wore a Shoei before the OGK and it seems comparable in size. I had an XL Shoei and have a XL OGK now. Ventilation is very good, although because of that fact... the helmet is louder then normal due to the airflow but I ride with earplugs so it doesn't bother me one bit. :boobies


Here is my current helmet collection -

OGK FF4-GP


VEMAR CARBON FIBER VSR


ARAI RX7 CORSAIR
