Regardless, IMO, the Corsair V/RX7-GP is the way to go. Arai takes some hits for their shield removal/installation from those who don't know how to do it.
Once the proper method is learned, it take 1 second to remove the shield and 3-4 seconds to re-install. I won't wear anything else.

Cage is correct about the Arai shield system............I was afraid of breaking something until an Arai rep demonstrated at one of the bike shows.

He just pulled the shield out.........and then jammed it back in again.......told me not to be afraid to ram it home...........

My take on the helmets is get something that fits and is comfy.........then you will wear it!

"...My take on the helmets is get something that fits and is comfy..."

Good words. I have always preferred the convenience of a flip up and upgraded my old Nolan to a new one last year. At the NYC show in January, on a whim, I got fitted for the Arai Vector. A month later I found one on sale. It is the most comfortable helmet I've ever owned and choose it for most of my riding over the Nolan.
Ride Safe,
