    HJC is another brand that is good.
    This is so confusing!
    How do I decide which one to go for.!
    What shall I be looking for in a helmet which is to be used only and only for touring purposes ?

    Be it touring or daily purpose.
    There is always the need of :
    Not light-weight to fly with air on high speed.
    Not too heavy to stress on head & neck.
    Proper Air Ventilation is more needed in touring as you're going to wear it for long time.
    Proper viewing angle's (sidewards).
    Good Visor that does not make you blind when in night when some light reflects on it.
    Adjustable cheek pads, in short, In Which You Feel Comfortable.

    Not really. These helmets are more or less, "cat on the wall" sometimes you get really good (most of the times) but at the same times there are tiny quality glitches which are overlooked. And there is always a price equation, even the best have the defect but to ratio of defective pieces to the helmet sold is lesser on higher priced helmets than cheap helmets, at in my opinion.

    The fit of the helmet is really precise & snug. Did not try the helmet before getting it. My Daijya Dragon Helmets size was L based on which I went ahead and got the Airoh in L.

    I have still not tested the helmet. Will do so this Sunday over a 500+kms ride and then will post an initial impression review of the helmet. By the looks the fit & finish is really good and the unique florescent based graphics are mind blowing. The dual visor system is much batter then the one on my Daijya helmet (No optical imperfection seen)

    I have also posted a pic of my 3 prized helmets (P.S: The one with Shoei written is a stickered Cross Dragon Helmet)

    Stay tuned until I post the detailed review. Ride Safe & Cheers
    That real cool, Akshay. Please do post some photos of the interior if you can a detailed ride review. I guess you paid 12k?

She has not been on any ride with me other than within city.

    Question is should I keep the other unused brand new helmet for once in a while ( read max 1nce in a year maybe) usage for her or try to sell it, cause the cushioning and shell might just degrade sitting in shelf without any usage ?

    Nope, a helmet will not degrade from not using nor does the cheek pads become flaccid. Fact is will get dusty and after a while it will start emitting some foul odor if it's used and never take care of, it's even worse in helmets in which cheekpads aren't able to removed.

    If you can remove the cheekpads, then there is nothing to worry at all.

    Now coming to the issue of your better half, why don't you take her for some helmet shopping, perhaps, she just didn't like this helmet's fit and feel. Try advising her the uses of full face than a half face. And I'd suggest you do the same I mentioned above to see some different full face helmets or modular ones for dual purpose. Make her wear some helmets (full face) and try finding in which she is comfortable, there should definitely be one.

    Also as a thought, try going for helmets with good peripheral vision, most poor quality helmets have poor peripheral vision (the ability to see till the corner of the eye both sides) because she might not felt comfortable with Cross, but there are good helmets out there with good PV just for the sake of this.

    Do let us know which helmet you zeroed in on.

    This is the exact helmet, exact color, exact decal helmet one of my friend has. Really really VFM. Nice, please do post a review. I've advocated a lot of times to people who are planning to get an entry level helmet to get their hands on a helmet like this.

    Cheers!

    thanks B7ACKTHORN for the clarification as always. Well all I can say is that will have keep pestering on her safety to use it. Well I did one thing right, I had taken her to shops before getting the helmet, because I wanted both to wear the same graphics. She liked CROSS over LS2 (which I liked). My preference of LS2 was just cause of dark color of inner fabric, less cleaning. Will surely post some pics soon.

    For self, short ride, planning to get the open face of Vega but can't find a good outlet where could find nice collection in Delhi/Gurgaon.

    Let me clear the air there mate, you had got your answers, hence i din't chip in with my suggestion, to avoid the multi post, and by no means was i calling your questions weird, agreed i should have phrased the point better myself. I was referring to the thinking thought of the cops to pull over someone just for having flashy gears.

    And as far as wasting time is concerned Members are more than welcome to skip a few random posts if they wish to on finding it irelevent, its an open forum where one can express his/her views apart from the strictly question/answer sessions, i intent to use that as much as i can. No offence meant to you on this mate.

    My LS2 is having the chrome finished one too, has many scratches to it within one year, had a fall a few months back and a small patch has been scrathed off, but till date, no flaking off has taken place, IIRC we have no reported case of the chrome flaking off here in this forum too. So my suggestion is, no need to worry about that as of now, if you can maintain the visor perfectly , then it's nothing to worry about.
