SUOMY is my choice, but in that price range they are all real close.

Most of the high price range helmets are light, thats basically what makes them expensive. Even the second tier Shoei RF1000 is really light.

I own 2 Shark helmets....both weigh around 1480 grams....very light. Great fit and comfort...Pricey but worth it to save the membrane......:wink:

The 1st one is the Shark RSX helmet, around $360-$400

The 2nd is the top of the line RSR2, around $480 - $650. I got it for a steal at $455

They run one size small, in fact I measured my head like 6 times, and according to their sizing chart and I was on the low side of a medium. When I got the helmet it was TIGHT, I thought I could live with it but ended up sending it back in exchange for a large. I paid $430. for my Shark, pretty good I thought, check e-bay.The one you have posted looks sweet.
