Where are you looking at them on the internet? I'm trying to find a good deal a Astral X blue/black in XL.s2kbrian said:my old shoei x-11 bostorm fit so well but i need a new lid now and looking at arais off the net. anyone had both helmets before? would large be the same in both?
You're not going to find an advertized deal on them or the Shoeis anywhere on the net through an authorzied dealer. Arai currently won't allow internet sales, and they both won't allow anything less than minimum adevertized pricing. The only place you may find a "deal" is on Ebay. You have to be very careful with Ebay sales, there has reprotedly been fakes a while back as well as the helmets may not be DOT or Snell spec, if they are an asian market model. The headshapes change for the market region as well. The headshapes listed for the American models on the Arai Amercias site may not coincide with other market versions. Arai contends that headshape is of enough importance that you should be properly fitted for one which also considers the thickness of the cheekpads along with proper positioning on the head.MikeyB09 said:Where are you looking at them on the internet?

If you're not sure of the sizing or shape consdierations, or the market it was intended for sale in, or of the authenticity, it's probably not a good idea, but you certainly want to be sure all of that is specified in the auction or verified at some point and sure of proper fit. It's pretty much like buying a pair of shoes or jeans, only typically more expensive.jim schmidt said:I did. It was fine. But there are a lot of sketchy helmets there. Be careful and don't take anything for granted.
Forget about which helmet fits what type head, or about you being asian? Oh well.....I better just plain forget it ALL before I get confused (which is a terribly easy thing to do).MT Wallet said::bitchslap
