As of now i only have a Quantum 2 and it is Sport Yellow.
I want something with yellow in it to match the Yellow on the Ducati 998.
Aria's Sport yellow is the same color.
I want something with a design in it lol.
I currently wear an XL in Arai with 12mm Check pads, so changing of the pads is critical.
Any help would be gratly appreciated.

Re: Looking for a new lid. (section8superbike)

Not to take a sale away from Jason, but have you considered having your helmet custom painted? I have a solid Quantum also, and I decided to have mine painted because the Quantum fits my head perfectly (haven't found a design yet that fits my head as well), and also because I wanted something unique.
Price ranges anywhere from reasonable to ridiculous- just depends on what you're after. Check these guys out:

Get a Suomy Extreme Andrew Pitt replica. It's green and yellow. It matches my red and black Ducati perfectly.

Try the Shoei X-11...

I wore Arai for years, and said I'd never change, but I recently got the Shoei and love it!

Re: Looking for a new lid. (Tornado-rider)

Tattooskickass, I seen both of them i like the twisted one.
I was wondering how much more air flow goes through the Corsair helmet and if ther eis on like the Twisted in Corsair.
I tried on a Shoei and i did not like the fit, but it also had the stock pads in it and i think ithey could have been changed.

If it didnt have the 11 on it I would buy it.

Jessica is recovering from wrist surgery right now, so I'll answer for her...

There's no Corsair with the Twisted paint job (they're mostly racer replicas). But in my experience, the venting on the Corsair really doesn't come into play unless you're riding at race track speeds.

All the Arai models ventilate pretty well, and we live down here in the AZ desert. Jess wears an Astral and I wear the Signet, and neither of us has any complaints when it comes to our heads staying cool. (Hell, my biggest complaint is the lack of decent graphics in the Signet line!
)

I think you would be happy with the Quantum Twisted, and it looks pretty good. IMHO, the Re-Entry would look awesome with the yellow Ducati!

A lot of people have problems with the Shoei's. Especially in the forehead area, where you get a bad "hot spot". If the Shoei fits you, it's great, but otherwise...

BTW, you can see the whole Arai line at http://www.araiamericas.com .

Re: Looking for a new lid. (AZ Scott)

998,

Have you looked at the Ducati helmets sold at the dealerships? I believe they are made by Suomy for Ducati and come in colors to match the bikes.
Older ones were labeled Dianese and made by I don't know who, f.y.i.
The newer ones are lighter and a bit better quality. Also a bit more in price, but what would you expect from Ducati?

And, the new Ducati Arai helmets are on the way to dealers now. Very limited quantities however. Rumor is only 60 helmets total for the USA.

Re: (bcmducati)

Hmm Ducati / Aria combo.....
I would like to see the a yellow if they had it.
Yeah i got a Q2 Arai, maybe ill stick with it and just get the Twisted one.
I havent even tried on a Corsair, do they fit different then the Q2s?
I would love to buy the Corsair instead, but as stated by scott, maybe the Q2 is fine.

Anybody read the helmet article in the June issue of Motorcyclist?They make a pretty good case for a DOT helmet being the best for crash pruposes,with an $80 lid having the best protection!! Thoughts?

Corsair is very similar to QII. See pic on our homepage of the Ducati helmets. In stock now.
