I have a question about helmet quality. I currently own a HJC CL-SP full face helmet that I ALWAYS wear when I ride my motorcycle. I ride between 3000 and 4000 miles per riding season, April thru October. My current helmet is 4 years old and I am looking to replace it. Looking at new helmets I can spend $175.00 for a new HJC or I can spend $450.00 for a new ARAI. Is the ARAI a SAFER helmet? They are both made to the same DOT and SNELL standards. The ARAI will be lighter and have a better fit and finish but will it protect my head better in a crash? If the higher cost helmet is safer I can justify paying more. I do not want to pay more money just to have a name brand sticker on my helmet with fancy paint.
