What is a good place in the bay to test on these helmets? I be back in July for my wedding.

Wine Country Motorsports at Sonoma Raceway has helmets and seats you can see and try in person.

Last time I was there and sat in some seats I bought a couple t-shirts for their time.

I switched to a STILO after trying on a friends. I ordered it with the side mounted ventilation tube after trying the adjustble one atop the helmet. There wasn't enough clearance to use the top mounted ventilation. I had to change the cheek pads (free swap) to get the exact fit I wanted.

I love the STILO helmet with the ear cups. Recently I had the ear cup speaker/microphone set up installed. It interfaces (with various adapters) with nearly any communication system.

The STILO iridium shield is the best I've ever looked through.

Northstar Motorsports (www.NorthstarMotorsports.com) will help you determine what helmet suits you best.

That's about an hour away from me. I will check them out when I'm in town.
