Just wondering if anyone has an HJC FS-15 carbon helmet to match the color of their bike? Copper SV with copper carbon helmet would be pretty snazzy! Blue and red, too, of course...

:D BWHAHAHAHAHA!!

I also like defination #8.

Sparklesome, fantabulous, general coolness. An exclamation of the subjects' shiny funkfactor.
Makes me want to put on my shiney silver pants and take my Gladius for a ride. ;)

............not that there is anything wrong with that.

You can't beat the look of the carbon fiber helmet. I have been looking at the previous model of the HJC carbon the AC-12. I hear great things about them and their only flaws being bubbling on the finish and that they are not quite the quality of Shoei. Check out compacc.com they have great deals on HJC and Shoei.

I have seen the ruby red Joe Rocket version, and it is gorgeous.

pics do not do it justice... trust me, the color really pops (especially the red), and the black "carbon fibery" look is much less prominent.

I really like the idea and look of the CF helmets. I have a bad neck and was interested for the possible weight savings. I have found some that are as light, or even lighter! That being said they don't fit my oddly shaped head.

I've seen these for fairly good prices compared to other light weight helmets I've looked into. I've seen them in person and they are snazzy (heh!). Very snazzy.

The only helmet which fits my mug is the Arai Profile - it's shaped more oval instead of round (my head is oval-shaped) so there are no pressure points, and my head is best protected. It's TIGHT but in a very good kind of way...I think there's a joke somewhere in there, but I'm not going to go there...

Anyways, I just thought I would add my 2 cents and iterate that fit is ultimately more important than the snazzy(-ness) of the helmet. I'm sure ya'll know that - maybe I'm just a little bitter because it doesn't fit me!
