I have a Bell Apex, I'm not real happy with. I previously had an Arai Quantum II which I loved.
The Bell impressed me with construction, Kevlar mat in the shell, easy shield removal, removable liner pieces for washing, BUT the helmet is noisy, and aerodynamically it yanks my head off in crosswinds. They are inexpensive, (they are made in China) and at times show it, loose vents, breath deflector.
My gut is telling me to bite the bullet and go back to Arai.
A self darkening shield, that is cool, I would LOVE not to use a clear shield and sun glasses!
