Question Helmet suggestions

I have ordered a Arai corsair v on special on Ducati's web site But it looks like they do not have large size anymore.
What helmet are you all wearing and what are your suggestions ?

Thanks,

Don't waste your time with Ducati's online store. Total disaster.

I have the Arai Tommy gun and the AGV elements helmet, both are great helmets but you might prefer one over the other depending on the shape of your head. Arai helmets fit round heads better, while AGV fit oval heads better. But the corsair V and GP tech are 2 of the best helmets in my opinion, try both on and see which is more comfortable to you.

Same for me, Sharks just don't sit nicely on my head. Shame because they always look good I reckon.

Weirdly, Shoeis always fit me well, but I recently bought an Arai Viper-GT which fits fine...Shoeis seemed to be quieter (smoother shape, no side pods) but the Arai liner is nicer.

Go with whatever mid-top end helmet fits best and is comfy. Try loads.
