    I have had my Shoei Hornet for a couple of months now and find it a bit quieter and more comfortable than the Zeuss but can't fit my Autocom speakers in the Hornet :cry , will have to look around for thinner speakers or go talk to Chopper Reed :lol3

    The only complaint that I have with mine is the hose off the camel back has trouble getting in under the front of the helmet because it has a rounded front more so than the Aria and Shoei. I like the price of the Zeus as well. I got mine from Bikebiz.

    Just found a great deal on Zeus helmets online. I've spoken with the guy on the phone and he seems quite genuine.

    I think I'll order myself a second one!!

    More on this...I've had mine for about a year now and find it really comfortable and generally easy to live with. It's the XS 54?! And is a good fit... BUT, my god it does make my melon look HUGE!!!:norton My previous helmet was a Suomi 57-58 Medium.

    That is a good price. I paid $224 for mine.

    Any yes the Camel Back is hard to fit under the front of the helment but i dont drink that much.

    The buckel is hard to do up with Gloves. Have to do it up before i put on gloves.

    Other than that for what it cost is a good helmet. Very quiet. No need for ear plugs.

    Used mine three times so far and for the price it is acceptable, it ain't no Aria or Shoei so don't expect the same level of fit or comfort, but then again it is a quarter of the price so I think it is good value.
    Comfort factor is OK but I expect it to get better as it wears in.
    Happy so far.

    I just ordered a mine from Bikemart in Ringwood, in the graphite colour. They also had the new RJ's DS helmets in stock. I tried both on, the RJ's looks better and appears physically smaller than the Zeus but for some reason felt it was heavier. I also noticed the visor on the RJ's doesn't fold up as neatly under the peak as on the Zeus. Just my opinion of course.
