Sharp looking lid. I like the bright purple.

This is a copied picture but its the same as mine

looks boring, but I needed a cheap helmet to get me back on the road and this was the best mix of budget but not crap!

and, being white, if its sunny and warm it means you don't boil your own head!

I guess I should put up my new one...

Nolan N91 Modular

Modular chin bar
bar lock for locking it in the up position
NCOM ready cutouts (worthless if you don't buy their expensive not functionally great NCOM system)
Pinlock system (love it... I ride in a lot of rain and it has never fogged even one bit)
Ratcheting quick release on the chin strap (fantasticly easy), though this means I can't lock it up with a typical helmet lock on my bike (bummer)
In-helmet sun visor (my favorite feature), though it isn't very dark compared to my sunglasses. I won't go back to helmets without this from now on
The ventilation, to be honest I don't even notice it... so I guess I'd say poor, but being able to flip it up does make up for this when riding in the city.

I go back and forth between my bell vortex (patriot color scheme) and my bell qualifier.

I love my Airmada Stack Hi-Viz! Icon makes good helmets and the Airmada has a ton of great features. I almost got the purple Spaztyk but decided to go Hi-Viz yellow instead. Admittedly, I wish I would have gotten the purple.

Before the Accident I picked up a Caberg Sintesi 107 and it looked something like this!

It no longer looks like that though and I'm looking at either getting another one as it saved my life or a different one.
