Smile Helmet Help ! What helmet do you use?

Im shopping around for a new helmet, ive tried from the inexpensive bluetooth helmet from walmart (SIGI brand) , and found it to be extremely heavy, and turning from side to side is difficult. Air ventilation was terrible as well ..

Im looking for a light weight full face helmet, that has good ventilation in the $80-150 price range. Reason i go so low as $80 as ive seen on a couple sites some HJC helmets going for cheap. I found a HJC CS-R1 for $50 bucks, a CL-16 for $90...

This site seems to have decent pricing :

Let me know what you all recommend! Thanks in advance!

Check out sportbiketrackgear.com or ridersdiscount. Both have good prices on Scorpions which I would recommend over HJC any day of the week.

HJC aren't too bad. I've heard some bad reviews for the CS-R1 though and some great reviews for the CL-16. I have the CS-R2 and I love it. You can get extra visors for pretty cheap too. I've had the helmet about 7 months now and haven't found any major flaws. HCJ's are known for not lasting very long though, but if you take care of it, it'll stay looking and feeling brand new.

^ agreed they are a very decent helmet. But owning both a Scorpion and a HJC, I'd take a Scorpion all day. Their clearance prices are pretty much the same and the visors are way better and just as cheap too.
