Has anyone tried/used any of the NEW Bell motorcycle helmets. My Arai Quantum is now 7 years old and pretty beat. The prices for the Arai Quantum II
and Shoei RF1000 are like $427. to $566.!!! Yikes!!! Never mind the RX7 Corsair at $700.
I decided to look at Bell, their Apex Model at $199. weighs 3.5 lbs like Shoei/Arai,is M2005/DOT Rated, has a KEVLAR shell, unlike Arai/Shoei who still use fiberglass, The liners in the Bell are fully removable for cleaning, cheek pads only, Arai/Shoei, replacement shields are $34. versus $55 for the Arai.
What do you think? Worth a try?
