I recently purchased a SparX helmet from HelmetHarbor.com. My wife and I were on vacation in Phoenix, AZ during Christmas and I got a chance to visit their store. I tried on several helmets and initially really liked the Scorpion EX-400. After viewing the online helmet reviews on HelmetHarbor.com I decided to give the less expensive and better rated SparX helmet a chance. I did not want to spend as much as I did on the Arai. I like it but really can't justify spending 5 times as much for the Arai as a Scorpion or SparX. My Arai Quantum-f is nearly 5 years old and has 55,000 kms on it. Because it is still Winter here in Windsor, ON, Canada I have only taken it out on one short ride. It is really light and quite comfortable but beware that it fogs up very easily. To solve that problem I have ordered a Fog City insert for my visor. Once I receive, install, and ride with it I will report back with an update on this inexpensive helmet. I purchased it for $119.95 shipping included within the US.
