I was wearing a Shoei GT-Air with the integrated Sena unit up until last year when I had the opportunity to sample a Scorpion EXO-R1 air and have been wearing that ever since. The liner is sooooooo comfortable. I probably would have gotten a GT-Air 2 but I wasn’t a fan of the changes they made for the second gen.

I have a Shoei GT air also with a Sena unit. I wanted a helmet with a drop down visor and this fitted my head. I only purchased the Sena unit as they were offering a good deal with the helmet. I had previously had a Arai chaser with a dark visor for daytime use and a HJC which had a drop down visor. When the Arai became too old I tried the Shoei and have not worn the HJC since.

That is probably the one thing I do miss is my drop down visor. Now I just have a smoke shield and a clear shield both with pinlock inserts. Minor inconvenience to have to remember to have both shields with me but I did just finally cave in and bought a top case so I just have the spare in there.

rolling with a Shoei GT-Air II. Great full protection with integrated movable sunscreen, kitted with SENA SRL-2 wireless headphones/mic that pairs very well to the BMW Connected app for full music, intercom, map and phone functionality. 21st Century!

Did have a Shoei GT Air which was lovely and comfortable, last year got an AGV Sport Modular which is so light! Only thing I noticed with the flip fronts is the strap sits slightly further back towards my neck on my chin...to begin with this really bugged me but I've got used to it and don't notice now. Not sure it's quite as comfy as the Shoei but more convenient to wear and feels lighter.

Shoei X-Spirit III.

Why? Because my X-Spirit II was the best fitting helmet I ever bought, so when it got time to change I just stuck with it. Previously I had 4x Arai RX7s, but they always needed to be customized with different size liners and cheek pads.

I wear an Arai Signet-X and it fits my head perfectly. Not the quietest helmet but I wear earplugs anyway.  Top construction and safety and great ventilation.   Whatever you choose be sure to get it professionally fitted - many riders wear helmets that are too big.
