I see alot of the big motovloggers get sponsored by Ruroc. Though the helmets do look cool, anyone ever own one or tried one on? thoughts?

I have the Shoei RF-SR. Great for upright riding. Good ventilation and TONS of colors and visor options. Also the handy comm system pockets for speakers. Shoei makes great helmets!

I have the AGV K3-SV. Very comfy helmet, only complaint is would prefer the sunvisor to be slightly longer as low autumn sun can sneak under it.

I used a rattle can on my helmet, but still need to make a new photo.
All black is nice, but hard to stand out ;)

Shoei RF-SR is the second helmet (and current) that I am rockin'. Great for comfort, ventilation, has pockets for the comm systems and looks good. Pricey ($400) but worth the great protection it offers. They included a pinlock with the helmet which was nice.

Scorpion EXO AT 950 Battleflauge with Pinlock visor. It's not the most quiet or most lightweight, but is my compromise helmet that I subject to everything. Then I have the overly noisy AFX FX41DS that might get used as a goggles off road helmet from now on.

I wear a HJC IS-17. Nothing crazy but has all the features I need including a pin lock visor. Been the only helmet to date I have been able to wear all day with no comfort issues :)

Shoei RF-1200 along with the photo chromatic visor and pin lock. Love it, turns dark in the sun and stays clear in the dark/night. Pretty good venting and built in pockets for speakers for your choice of Blue tooth communicator.

Bell Eliminator. Would I recommend? Eh.... probably not. It's a comfortable and good looking helmet that's hobbled by the inclusion of stupid features that are designed stupidly.

Magnetic chin strap holder that magnets itself to your tank all the time - stupid.
Visor you can fasten down but takes the might of a million giants to undo - stupid.
Visor fastening and changing that takes multiple allen keys and correct torque - stupid.

Lol yeah visor sounds crap, when every other manufacturer has got simple quick release systems.
I've also seen a few new helmets with the magnetic fastening, no experience myself, i would imagine could become not only annoying but also potentially damaging if it does try to attach to painted surfaces such as tanks at every opportunity.

As I'm starting out, I bought a bundle from my local motorcycle shop (Thunder Road). I upgraded the helmet because I wanted a sun visor, and went for a Shark Ridill.
I bought the lot at the same time though, and didn't have much of a budget..so in a couple of years I'll probably upgrade..but it will do the job for now!
