I've been using the O'Neal helmet for years now. I just got a 7 Series O'Neal for Christmas, if fits perfect, has all the good stuff (removable liner, good venting, etc.). I can't wait go scratch that thing up, it's just too new looking. :)
Get whatever you want as long as its over $150. Believe me any less you'll be getting a crappy helmut. Sales don't count though. Original price. Im not talking about good deals on ebay and stuff like that.
I have always worn HJC helmets and crashed on them quite a few times too.They have always stood up well and been comfortable.I just recently bought an HJC fang helmet and love it,looks really nice too.I think the HJC helmets are a little heavier than some,but I prefer a sturdier helmet.
Weird shaped head here! I have a hard time finding helmets that fit me well. All the top line brands that i've tried didn't suit me for one reason or another and i had made up my mind that i wasn't going to settle on a pricey helmet if it didn't fit. Found the Thor force and i really like this helmet!
