This helmet has a large eye port.


Sorry, had to. :D

Oh and +1 on HJC RPHA. Eye port seems decent compared other Helmets I've worn, and I love how light weight it is. I'm on my 2nd and my first did it's job well on a 140 mph downer.

I moved from a Shoei RF1200 to a AGV c=Corsa for the track and the eye port on the AGV is stellar (as is the stability at speed), but as has been mentioned in the thread already, you need to be on the oval side of intermediate oval to get a good fit with the AGVs. I have a definite oval headshape and the Corsa is the best fitting helmet I've worn. Snug everywhere with some pressure at the brow that I fixed by just mashing the foam shell down a bit with my thumbs.

I will say that Toni Elias looks pretty bad ass with the Spiderman RPHA 11.

Give the HJC helmets a shot. If taller eye port is what you're looking for, I'd opt for the 11 Pro versus the 10 Pro.

When I get off my lazy butt, I plan on doing a full review of the 11 Pro!

Maybe the x-14 is different but I fit the RPHA and the x-12 very well. Their shapes weren't that different.

Thanks guys - very much.

Now I just need to find someplace to try a few more of these.

Local dealers sure don't stock helmets like they used to (can't blame 'em).

AGV Corsa FTW

The visibility with the AGV Corsa is fantastic for racetrack specifically. You need to be able to look up ahead when leaned and the Corsa delivers. I also like the auto-lock mechanism of the visor. Definitely worth the money!

Possibly. I never took the chance to try the X-12. The RF1200 fit better than the X-14. I had definite pressure points on right above my temples with the 14 So uncomfortable for me. The liner wasn't that great to me either. I expected something a little more "smooth" for the price tag.

ls2 arrow carbon has a massive visor, so much so you can't really see the helmet edges with it on. I've been wearing mine a couple of months and it's great, huge ventilation too so very good for the hot months. Dark visor and it looks badass.

Thanks very much guys. I wanted to try them all, but found a Shoei X-14, Bell Star and AGV Corsa all on sale so ordered those three. Measuring eye ports, the AGV had the widest (top to bottom) opening by about 2mm. The X-14 and Star measured equally. I had the most "upward" visibility with the AGV, but apparently you can adjust the padding in the X-14 to adjust the view up 4 degrees. I didn't try that as, of the three, it happened to be the loosest on my head - the other two had a tighter "race fit". In the end I got the AGV because, for me, I could see the best and it fit my head best. The other two were really nice helmets. I didn't weigh them, but just holding them I couldn't feel a material difference. Thanks again for all the input. Too bad there's not some database of objective information about helmet specs.
