    Beautiful writeup Rachit! Didn't you have to face any customs issues since this was coming from outside India?

    Also, its generally recommended to try the helmets out before buying to ensure the size fits perfectly. How did you get around that?

    So finally after a wait and want of 4 years, I finally got the courage to upgrade to my dream helmet. I bought my CBR 4.5 years back, and my research on better helmets started then. I was using a Bell Vortex at that time which was a perfectly fine helmet, matched perfectly with my bike's color scheme too, but I wanted something nicer.

    I think roughly this was the time when Shoei launched their new flagship in the form of X-14. I read the reviews and really liked it. About 4 years back, I got an opportunity to travel to US, which I used very well to buy some good riding gear for me. During that time, I got to try a Shoei X-14 in one of the shops and absolutely fell in love with how it felt. My wait for a possible discount or a price drop started then.

    Over the years, I tried many helmets but for some reason or the other never felt as good as that Shoei had felt on my head. Being a Rossi fan, the desire for an AGV was always there, I have huge respect for ARAI and I absolutely loved the interiors of my Bell. Tried many helmets, some at shops, some with friends but that Shoei was bloody stuck in my head.

    To make matters worse, Marc is the ambassador for Shoei and he starts wining championships left right and center. The net result, any dream of mine of seeing a discount or a price drop on this helmet went down the drain.

    I check this helmets price every week on Revzilla. Rather than going down, it actually went up. To make matters worse, Dollar became stronger by 10 Rs as compared to Rupee in the last 4 years. What was a 40ish K helmet was a 60ish K helmet today.

    Then is the challenge of bringing it from the US. Helmet is one of the toughest things to carry in flights if its not your own. You would be sacrificing relations/friendships by asking anyone to bring your helmet. I tracked prices in Singapore, UK and USA. But could never gather the courage to pull the trigger mostly because of price and then didn't want to screw anybody else travel because of my helmet.

    This year my Bell was almost touching 7 years now, which is generally the recommended end of serviceable life of a helmet. I was quite bored of it and it was starting to become a bit loose too. This particular color them is named Bring TC-1. This color scheme I think came around a couple of years back and ever since I saw it, I was a complete fan. Although I dont like very bright colorful things, but this theme just stole my heart. This year the want of the helmet was really big. Most websites in US and Singapore had this color theme as sold out and I really feared that it might be on its way out. However most UK websites had it in stock still.

    The savior came in the form of bikegear.in. They had this helmet listed at 65K, which was exactly equal to its US price. The added benefit was I would get it in its box properly packed and wouldn't have to sacrifice any relation for it. I could convert the charges into EMI as well. I pinged bikegear and their entire communication and service was top notch. They gave me a discount of 2K. I ordered the extra dark smoke visor as well, which had a discount of 1K. So total 63+6K for the helmet and the extra visor.

    They had initially committed me 3 weeks of delivery time, but the helmet was in my hands in flat 8 days from ordering. I think they get it directly from Shoei in Japan and the day they got the helmet in Pune, I had it the very next day. Overall an excellent experience with them and would highly recommend these guys.

    Now coming to the helmet:
    Most reviews say it is one of the more comfortable and plush race helmets and I would agree. The quality of interior and feel on your cheeks is really likeable. I had become very fussy of how a helmet feels on your face maybe because my Bell was quite plush. It is tight fit helmet, but does not feel too tight. The quality of the thing is just top notch. You hold it and you know it is a premium helmet. The thickness of the shield, the tight indents that it goes through when opening and closing, the feel of the vents and switches is all very tight and well machined. In terms of features and headlines, I agree this helmet lacks a bit to the more modern competitors but in terms of fit and finish it is right up there.

    I have only ridden in it 1 weekend, but the initial impressions are good. It feels snug and stable. The wind noise is fairly well controlled and the ventilation can really be felt. Fits true to size.

    Thank you brother!!
    So customs shipping everything was taken care by bikegear.in and it was all included in the 63K that I paid.

    So I had seen many reviews of this helmet and all of which said it fits true. I wore a Size M in Bell and ordered an M.
    I actually also had tried this helmet in the US in Size M, some 4 years back.

    CHEERS!!
