Currently running a Speed and Strength "United by Speed" (SS1200). Basically, I needed something better suited to a bike and didn't have a lot of cash. I'd been riding with my SA2010 rated Simpson Bandit, but the visibility was really poor seeing as it was made for cars, not bikes.

The S&S is light, but doesn't have a lot of padding. and with the intercom system it's even tighter. I chose it for cost and design. I'll be upgrading at some point.

I've got quite a collection:

Speed and Strength SS700 - for vlogging
Held Alcatar - for touring and offroading
Nexx x30 - was my first helmet, retired now, but occasionally use it
Shark Vancore - for riding at night, because all my other helmets have a mirrored or dark smoke visor. This has a light smoked goggles.
Some no name 3/4 helmet - that I use for my motorcycle licensing course and tests. Already passed 2 of the 3 available tiers, still keeping it around when I decide to get my 3rd tier license.

I use to have a SHARK Evoline something or other, it was loud & fogged up real easy, Now I have a SHOEI Hornet X2, I like ADV riding and it seemed like the best helmet I could buy and it is awesome, It's quiet, doesn't fog up & is great with the SENA.

Was running a Shoei GT Air for the last couple years, but just picked up the new Shoei X 14. Love how comfortable it is, and best yet, I can install a tinted visor! Originally bought it as a track helmet, but I think it'll pull double duty.

to be fair, ive only done 2 short rides since.

If he didn't hit his head on the way down, it's fine.
I did >.> and it bounced around a bit.

started on gravel, slid into a grassy ditch, up into a stubble field. Can see where the grass cleaned my helmet.
