Helmets

I'm thinking about geting a new helmet soon, lost a bunch of weight and now my hjc doesn't fit that well. I'm torn between two helmets, the Shoei rf1000 and the Icon Domain. I have found a bunch of people locally who wear or have worh the Shoei and have nothing but praise for it, but I have yet to find anyone with the Domain. How well does it resist fog, what is the wind noise like in it, and how well does it ventilat? thanks in advance for any input you may have

'ey Flyboy.

I had the same problem. I don't know much about the Icons, but I did pick up the Shoei X-Eleven. Once again......nothing but praise for it. Fits perfect & ventilation is incredible. A bit pricey though.

if u got the cash go with the shoei, i have the Icon Skull Mainframe and i got nothing but praise for it as well but the shoei's are usually lighter, vent just as good, less windsound, and probably have a few little features that make life just a little easier. ie. visor lock and such.
