need helmet opinion!

I'm currently using a AGV gp tech in the rossi replica "the chicken" with my birthday being a few days away my parents and sister are buying me a new helmet. So I want to grab either the valentino Rossi "wake up" or the "five continents" what would you guys grab?

I wear an Icon Variant, and i have to say, its one of the best helmets ive ever had the joy of owning.

The visor keeps the sun out of your eyes most of the time, so no need to swap visors

The "beak" is farther away from the face so you dont feel stifled even when moving slow or standing.

And it moves MASSIVE amounts of fresh air.

I own a NEXX and it's got to be the best helmet I've ever owned. It's all carbon fiber so it's super light

Sorry for any confusion I may have caused. I'm going to buy another AGV gp tech but I can't decide which color scheme I want

I'd wait and hang out for the limited edition "Why The Hell Can't I Ride This Ducati?" AGV helmet that's coming out soon.

If I could fit a gptech I'd get the simoncelli rep. Between the two I like the wake up one more
