Due to a recent crash, I need a new helmet. I've had Bell, Shoei and Arai in the past, but they all seem like they could use more airflow. With the heat here in Arizona, I'm looking for suggestions on what helmet gets the most cooling air to your head.

The Thor SVS5 provides you with adjustable airflow vents.

I won one of these jewels at DirtWeek! :)

I haven't tried it yet but the new Troy Lee helmet is suppose to have superior air flow. Supposedly he designed specificly to have better air flow.

No helmet will actually let you "feel" airflow, at least none I've tried, but the Fox Pro Pilot is the best I've had, better than even the Arai VX-Pro I've had (and loved) for years).

The old 1990? Bell moto 5 flowed so well you could easily feel the air, wish someone would make one that vented like it.

I can feel the air flow in my HJC ACX-1 when I'm snowmobiling! But I can not tell when I am riding my bike in the summer!
Good Luck!
