Personally I don't know anything about those Joe Rocket (?) helmets.
If I were to go CF for helmet, I'd prefer some UVEX or Lazer. MHO

My buddy has the Joe Rocket one and I don't like it. The air vents right into your eyes and I had to open the visor doing 85 on the highway because I couldn't see. It is light and comfortable, but I wouldn't buy it.

You can get an HJC carbon for around 260.

I'm with WSMC831...Although I do get a little eye blast at speed with my Carbon HJC I can't see the Joe Rocket being worth $200 more. The HJC is very light compared to the old Shoei that it replaced.

ABM, shield not sealing well enough? any way to adjust? I've been thinking about trying one. As good as KBC's fit (comparable to my old rx7) and feel I've been wondering about the hjc.

www.webbikeworld.com really likes them, and at 260 they're interesting. Considering shark as well.

OP, cheapest I've found the HJC if you are interested, type 'barf' in the coupon code for an additional 10% off.
