I have an Arai Web now, but I have it because it fit the best. I tried Shark and Shoei and a few others. Overall, I tried about 10 different hats of different models and sizes and ended up with Arai because it fit. I then picked the Web design of the one model that fit my head the best.

I have an Arai and have no complaints about it at all. I picked it also for my funny shaped head :)

Well, like a lot of people have noted, the "best" lid really depends on which fit your head best.

For me, I like my AGV XR-2 a lot. It's very comfortable, well-vented and light-feeling. It can be a little noisy (although I think that is due to an imperfect fit on the dark shield, since the lid is quite quiet with the clear shield on).

Fit-wise, I like the feel of Shoei lids, as well. For me, Scorpions are too tight and the Arais too sloppy. Icon was waaaaay too heavy. I have an HJC CL-SP that worked fine, but was heavy, had little in the way of venting and was very noisy. I'm certain I've tried on Suomy, KBC and Shark lids at some point, but they were so unremarkable that I don't remember my reaction at all.

I just bought a Nolan N102 modular helmet earlier today after months of trying on many different helmets. It seems to fit my head's shape the best.

Trying to help decide between a HJC CL15 and a Scorpion EXO 400 for my fiance.

The store I just bought my helmet from (www.helmetharbor.com) has a very nice website that reviews various helmets via video. They have quite a few head to head comparisons of different brands.

If you're in Gilbert, Arizona it's actually a nice little place to stop by. The owner and staff are real down-to-earth and knowledgeable, and they give great deals.

I was impressed at how it was not soley about profit, because they will suggest what works for you as a rider, not what's the most expensive product available. In fact, they seem to encourage you to save yourself money.

I suppose if you want to buy a helmet that was banned from use in the LRRS, and is pretty crappy to begin with, then stick with the HJC.
Actually, all the helmets you have listed are bottom of the todem pole helmets anyway.
