What is it about Philadelphia that brings out these businesses who only wish to lead us down the path of retail righteousness?

Cyclegear was selling the "Apollo" graphic EXO-1000's for US$125.00 last week. Of course, when I finally wandered in, there were only smalls, mediums, and XXLs left.

Lol like I said before, I've only been workin here for alittle under a year, I've only really gotten into the helmets part in the last 7 or so months and I've only dealt with Arai. So yes you are correct I am real new to all the different helmets out there. Some brands you guys mentioned I've never even heard of. I'm learning new stuff everyday though and its awesome to read all this feedback you guys have. Thanks guys!

I also like a good, "Nazi" style half helmet. The fake chrome finish makes the pink adhesive mohawk stick on better.

I'm wondering what kind of biased "investigator" you are...

helmet

Arai XD3. Cheek pads swap for sizing, good fit (varies for each person), and the chin bar is not giving me a hickey.

re. visor vibration: superglued four quarters under the visor and solved the problem. Does that resonate with you?

Spam is generally just an advertisement disguised as an informative post. For instance, if you were to post on this site a review about how great Arai helmets are and what great deals and service you get at TSP, especially without disclosing you work there - that would be spam.

But, in my opinion, you were straightforward in your post and stated your affiliation and asked for input about helmets to help you do your job. Frankly, I think that's what forums are for and appreciate vendors trying to educate themselves on what customers want.

There are several vendors on this forum that provide a wealth of info on a variety of products without ever trying to sell the stuff in those posts. Who better to answer a question about the fit of an Arai helmet than somebody that sells a lot of them?

Perhaps even helmet fit in general. It is amazing how many wear poorly fitting ones. I've seen people lying on the ground that I could put 2 fingers between the helmet and their forehead. Talked to plenty that said they would wear them if they didn't hurt.
Lots of opportunity out there.

Looks like you passed the benifit of doubt test.

Arai, Nolan, HJC, Bell, Fulmer and a couple of Navas years back. The Nava pro was the most comfortable helmet I have ever owned, the Arai was number 2.

3/4 or full doesnt really matter much to me, just bought an HJC flip, we'll see.

Previously owned an Arai Renegade, but bought size too large. Got a Corsair next and rode with it for 3 years, saved my head when I totalled my DL650. It was light, fit well but was noisy. I replaced it with a Nolan N102. I wanted an integrated sun visor (learned my lesson riding at dusk into the sun). It's also noisy, but heavy as well. Looking into getting the N103 as the sun visor is inside and has better coverage. I like the quick release strap too as well as the modular, very convienent.

I agree with this to a certain extent, but there is a point at which that participation really does start to become a continuous advertisement for their shop.

There's a couple of threads I can think of right now where some vendors are giving us information on when they're going to have the stock, when there's going to be a delay in the stock, encouraging inmates to call them with sizing questions... Generally being "helpful". That's running really close to the edge.

Don't get me wrong, I appreciate when someone closer to the product can answer some very specific questions, but there's a lot of more generic info that really does seem to be as much an effort to drive people to their place of business as it is answering questions.

"Well, we really ought to buy that product from this vendor because they've been so helpful in that product's thread."
