I've been thinking about grabbing a cheaper DS helmet. I had an Arai XD-3, but it was uncomfortable at speed. Don't really want to take another $400+ flyer. Really, the main reason I'm looking at DS helmets is for airflow. Even with the windshield in the lowest position, my helmet gets pretty toasty on my Vee. So I was thinking I might grab a cheaper DS helmet to get better airflow. The AFX/Fly ($120) gets pretty good reviews. I tried one on and it fit well, but it felt pretty heavy and the Visor/Peak seemed useless for blocking the sun (I'm not concerned about roost). If I'm getting a DS helmet, I'd like the visor to be there for something more than show. My Arai did a great job at blocking the sun. The GMax ($90) has very few reviews, but they seem positive and I've had a GMax helmet in the past and thought it was a lot of bang for the buck. I'm wondering how heavy the GMax is relative to the AFX (couldn't even find specs) and if the visor/peak is actually functional. (And, YES, I have a $100 head in case somebody is inclined to post a generic condemnation of cheap helmets).
