I've just had a really beautiful helmet for Christmas. It's a bit more "girlie" than I'd usually go for (I've never been a fan of pink riding gear) but I think it's a really nice piece of kit.
In recent years I've tended to go for Arais as, although Shoeis are slightly more comfortable and "plush" to wear, I've found it impossible to get my glasses on inside most recent Shoei offerings, so I stopped even considering them.
Then I saw the XR1000 Fab at our local dealers. Here's a link to a rotatable image of it, though the website can't quite do justice to the "shot silk" paint effect, which means that the pattern changes colour from pink to green as you turn the helmet: Shoei XR1000 Fab
I decided to at least try it on, and found it to be considerably more comfortable than my current Arai. Shoei also seem to have changed their designs somewhat, as I have absolutely no problem getting my glasses on inside it.
So, that was one of my Christmas presents. Now I'm just waiting for some biking weather so that I can wear it!
But the purpose of this posting, in addition to showing off my gorgeous new helmet, is to flag up with any other glasses wearers, who might have given up on Shoei of late, due to problems getting their glasses on, to consider giving them another try when they come to buy their next new helmet.
