Hey Sam.

You looking for a street, dual sport, or a dirt helmet? There isn't a lot of choice around here, but if you what kind of shape fits your head there are a lot more to choose from online. Check out Canada's Motorcycle or Atomic Moto.

popular lid on this forum and others. I'd like to try the LS 386 modular but can't find one to try on first, and unsure about returning it should it not fit.

shame they dont do a white one

looks very like the more expensive x-lite dual sport one. they're both abit like a road helmet with a peak added. which supposedly makes them a bit more stable at speed

Atomic moto shows a white one, might be worth a call to CM to see if they can order it.
