I reakon it's ugly because it looks too busy. You know when some people shave their head, and they've got a really ugly lumpy head... the Nolan has the contours of a lumpy head.

Keep in mind Nolan = $400
Shoei = $800 .. :)

At the end of the day I'll get what fits better but still like the opinions :P

I like the Nolan too! it looks pretty futuristic...a lil bit like a shaven head. but i like it coz its simple too. and i think it matches the bike better too :)
The other one looks a bit try hard with the patterns...

Thats why I liked it too - futuristic :D And half the price too!
I'm trying to go for a black scheme with bits of red etc ..

Someone made a good point and said wearing a black helmet just helps make you more invisible to cars, while a 'loud' helmet could be more noticable ..

Dont forget, there are alot of other good brands out there. AGV, KBC, Arai... try them too.

But if i was to choose between the two, I would say the Shoei. Looks mint!

I chose B

but it all comes down to what fits your head right and not really about looks since its Safety first and price doesnt matter when it comes down to protecting your head

Pick whichever fits your head best.. You'll know instantly after trying them both on which feels better

Of course, you'd be stupid to think I was going 100% on looks
Doesnt mean I cant ask the opinion of others on the APPEARANCE of the helmet ;)

Option B definatly.

I'd go for the Shoei. But remember to try on other helmets first, because your head shape might not fit a Shoei as well to other brands.
Like ianmallee said try the helmet warehouse, their having a big sale in two weeks, time to save up!

theyre both ugly, the gfx on the shoei look like a 14 year olds Kmart tshirt....

why not just get a plain shoei or arai?

I'm starting to like Option B (Or similar) more and more haha :D Will check them out this weekend and see. I just want a bit of red in it to match the bike so it has a colour scheme (Eg; black/matt black/bits of red etc) ..think it blends well :P Thanks guys! Will put a pic up when I pick a helmet
