Sport Touring - Shoei GT Air.
However, I also have an HJC RPHA 11, and am coming to the realization that lightness might be the second most important consideration behind fit.
How do you like the GT Air overall? How do the the GT Air and the RPHA 11 compare?
Interesting. I guess when asking others, I should also comment about my helmets and experience.
My first helmet was an Large HJC IS-17. A regular helmet as far as I know, not race, not touring, just an all around helmet. Inexpensive and comfortable fit, noise wasn't terrible, good central visor tab with excellent positons, including two useful urban street positions, the sun visor works well and one of the best parts...the temple fit for glasses is uncanny. I have yet to find a helmet fit glasses as well as my HJC IS-17. I hear other HJC fit glasses well.
My next attempt at a "better" helmet was a Bell Star MIPS. I assume this is more towards the race spectrum, like a sport-touring helmet. I chose a Large and it fits snug, I think too snug. I know helmets should fit snug but I think this helmet is too tight. I also don't like the visor, although it has a central tab, it only has 3 positions. Locked down closed, down but not locked and fully open. Annoying. Also, Bell Star helmets have the WORST glasses fit. The glasses are too high on my face and at a strange angle. I chose a Large but it feels like it is too snug. Takes a lot of effort to put on and take off.
Another try, the Shoei GT Air. Better than the Bell for visor positions and glasses, has a sun visor but doesn't come down as far as the HJC IS-17. Large helmet and I suspect it is too snug/tight for me. Not as bad as the Bell Star but takes a lot of effort to put on and take off. Cheek pads seem itchy. Helmet doesn't feel the greatest. I suspect it is hard to do shoulder checks with vs the HJC IS-17.
The Bell and Shoei may be the wrong size or the wrong shape, but comparing, I can't get over how comfortable the HJC IS-17 is. I didn't wear the Bell enough to see how quiet it is. HJC seems average. Shoei is very quiet. Almost alarmingly so.
I may wear my IS-17 for a bit, but it is 3 years old and beat up. No crashes, but it's been dropped and scratched up plenty. I have new cusions for new. I am leaning towards trying another HJC helmet. Maybe pick up a new IS-17 for now or try an RPHA 70 ST.
I would like a sporty or sport touring helmet. Something not for fully upright riding and not full race tuck. Something in between.
