I love Bell helmets, but their shields are crappy, in my experience. Problem avoided here!

It actually had a feature the Shoei didn't (magnetic side pads to allow easier removal in a crash so the head & neck aren't twisted as much) and I think the colors match the new dual sport rather nicely. It was a steal. $220 OTD on a $500 retail helmet. Brand new in the box!
