After reading reviews I decided to go with an HJC IS-Max.
Anyone on these boards have personal experience with that model?
Thanks,
Dani

I got the IS-MAX from New Enough about a month ago and I am very pleased with it.

I don't have to take my glasses off and juggle them before I put the helmet on, I can flip up the front of it when I'm stopped in traffic or at long lights to get some air (and exhaust fumes), and I really like the slide down internal sun visor. I got it in white, and I don't know if it is my imagination or if it really is because of the color, but I find it a lot cooler.

YMMV, but I think it is a great helmet.

Seems like an excellent helmet,
but do send it back if it doesn't fit you properly
(probably you already knew, but just in case...)

On-line helmets are a bit of a gamble,
but NewEnough is gracious about taking prompt returns

There are other things to check for, besides that the helmet is absolutely comfortable
