My Arai Signet is getting old and tired and it's time to invest in a new lid. I don't mind dropping a few bucks on a quality helmet but I don't need to be forcibly sodomized in the process. In addition it's been my experience that buying one from someone who knows what they are selling and how to fit them properly makes a big difference. Standing in a store and just trying them on doesn't really tell you how they're going to feel after they're broken in and your riding. Any recommendations on dealers? I live in Clearwater but don't mind taking a drive or ride to see someone who knows what they're doing and will sell at a fair price.

You mention sodomizing and SS is the first one to chime in... coincidence?


from arai to scorpion? Don't see that happening
I had one of each with some overlap... Arai RX-7 had ventilation & "label appeal"... Scorpion was way more comfy & obviously better priced. But every melon's different. Just my $0.02.

I was sold on the faceshield. Couldn't believe what they were doing to it in the shop without breaking/scratching/kinking it.

I have the EXO-400.. For $150, theres no better lid for the price. Its both DOT and SNELL certified. The only thing is, its a little heavier than a Shoei or Arai, but not too bad. (just a few ounces).. Very comfortable padding and has pretty good ventillation. Faceshield is fog proof also! . Would definitely recommend to anyone not wanting to dish out too much $..

Fisrts off I feel its my duty to inform you that you can make that Arai feel totally new by replaceing all the padding. The secret in a good fit at least with Arai is having the padding replaced until it fits you best.(Custom fit) Most dealers dont do this but should.
