Nice ventilation features, consistent peak, no internal sun visor. Feels comfortable (whatever that means).

There wasn't any yellow one at the stand, nor in the catalogue.

I agree. I currently have an AFX FX-41, after riding a Shoei RF1100 for 5 years. I LOVE the combination of the beak AND the internal sun visor. I have the perfect setup at all times to deal with ANY lighting condition.

When my buddies ask how I like the FX-41, I say "I LOVE the piece of shit helmet. I wish I could buy the $500 version."

The features on the FX-41 are great, the build quality is cheap shit. The build quality of my RF-1100 was amazing, I just wish it had the features.

This new Shoei is a disappointment to me.

Which is the $500 version?

Not only are bikes getting bigger & klunkier, now helmets must too?
