    I've been debating between picking up a Scorpion EXO AT950, which seem to be very popular here and in my local dual-sport groups, or buying a Scorpion R420 and a Bell MX9 MIPS.

    Hi, folks, I pretty much regularly get foggy visor when I stop for a light on a cool day. Normal, right? I see all sorts of solutions and I've tried two masks, the BILT Fog Shield Mask and the Raider 26-991 MX-Breath Deflector. Neither of them fit my helmet. Pinlock looks promising but I...

    So I've worn HJC Modular Helmets for years now. They're decent quality for a good price. Not as fancy fancy as the Nolans or Shuberts, but they get the job done.

    Do you use a helmet similar to the Shoei Hornet, Icon Variant, or Arai XD4? The common characteristic of these is the visor over the top of the faceshield. If so, what is your experience with how the visor handles the air pressure at highway speeds?

    Best helmet for v-strom rider Hey, I tried a post attached to a different thread, and got some good information, but thought I would try a separate unique post. I currently am wearing my first helmet, a BILT modular lid I got at Cycle Gear. It's okay, but fogs terribly when riding, but what...

    Alright all you Pacific NW, year-round, rainy or not, cold weather commuters: What helmets are you all using? What strategies are you using to keep clear vision? I'm asking because I've had just about enough of my current setup. I use a Nolan N102 (flip up face) helmet. I decided on this...
