  • Which Helmet to get? Why?

    Ok guys.. i can either get a Arai Haga or a Bieffe Biaggi replica (a little old) Pics of each are below!

    Which one should I get? I like the looks of both. I want to know which one you would pick and why? What should I know about each helmet? ventilation? graphics, protection, etc?

    Thanks!

    Arai HAGA


    Bieffe Biaggi

    Well, my personal opinion is the Arai. Lighter by wieght if I had to guess, and Arai has top notch quality (nothing bad about Bieffe, but...). Arai looks better as well.

      Sorry to sound boring, but seriously, pick the one that fits best...

        Yeah, try em both on, and get the one that fits better and is more comfortable.

          I would get the new one which appears to be the bieffe. Weigh all the factors: cost, comfort, looks.
          I know nothing about bikes.

            Do not forget to pick based on who has approved it for safety ratings as well. DOT and Snell plus BSI is always a good start.

            Fit is essential and removable lining is also a good thing. Some helmets are quieter than others but you should always wear ear-plugs IMHO

              The Arai is the better lid, but comes with its own headaches. I used to wear bieffe and they are nice too. It comes down to proper fit.

                If they both fit well, then the Arai by far.

                  Tiz all bout the fit man - I ride w/a Shoei for gods sake cuz I love the way it fits - My back up is a Nolan cuz it is comfy as well - Not sure if ya can or not but try 'em with a ride and see if one is less "noisy" than the other

                      yes, i am in the same boat. i'd like to replacce my shoei rf helmey. its a good helmet, but acouple years old, some scratches, and i want the quietest helmet on the face of the earth, seriously. i want to test ride all the helmets to see what the wind noise is on each. a magazine should do a scientific test as to what helmet is quietest. wind noise is pissing me off.

                          the arais are nice but I think way overpriced. The bieffe is actually owned by bell. george

                            Get the Aria, then you don't have to tell people you wear a Beefy

                              Well.. the Bieffe is an internet buy.. I have not seen one of these in the stores for a while. I'll go out and see if i can try another Bieffe on, I do know the Arai fits very well
