I'm not limiting myself per say. It's just that I'd like to stay with
something reasonable. If it turns out that the best helmet that fits is
$350, then $350 it is. I think I got my Shoei for aroun $225-275 (been 6
years now), and I think the Caberg was the same. I also agree that one's
head is irreplacable (not what my wife says, BTW) and that it should be
properly protected. I understand that + $$$ = + protection (most of the
time). I just want to stay away from the race versions of the helmets
(replica paint), the ultra light helmets (weight never really bothered me),
and the other useless gadgets that drive up the price.
I was just reading about the Aria sizing on WebBikeWorld, and was going to
check it out. I'm 5' 5" and have to wear an XL because of the long oval
shaped head (top down). I guess my head is just naturally aerodynamic!
Thanks for all the tips!
