Buying a helmet is easy to mess up. One you got to know your measurements, I am a 56 cm ,so I am a Shoei small. If you have a helmet that give you neck pain or headache your helmet is so big or to small, a helmet should fit tight but not to the point of pain. your cheeks should be pressed tight against your face, GO TO YOUR LOCO DEALER AND TRY ON HEMLETS .ALL helmets have a 5 year life span and the Bautista came out in 2011 2012 so you got a 2 year life span on it, now I always bought old new helmets in the pass and they have giving me 5 years out the box before falling apart , IMO this helmet will last till 2020 , I road this helmet for 3 hours straight canyon and street and It was everything your last helmet didn't have, I cant believe someone would bash this helmet , Just be sure to measure your head size, know your head shape, and buy accordingly , you cant go wrong ,remember you get what you pay for.

Undoubtedly one of the best helmet in the market & at the price Motosport offers its a steal deal!!!
Not quite as plush as an Arai, but visibility is outstanding and the weight on my head is great!
The only minus is that I'm using their dark smoke visor and it fogs at the drop of a hat. I'll have to figure out some sort of coating solution. With one click up on the visor it stays clear at a stoplight and clears quickly with a small bit of air movement.
For the sale price, this helmet is totally awesome and the finish is pretty snazzy!
This is my first Shoei helmet. I wished I would have been using them for years. You definitely feel the difference over the low end brands. Cannot beat the price either. If your on the fence about this one, you won't be disappointed.
I absolutely love this helmet. It is extremely comfortable, looks great, and performs as advertised. It is a motogp helmet, but can be used for daily riding. It is not as quiet as a Qwest or RF-1200, since that isn't a racing helmets main focus (Wear ear plugs if you are worried about your hearing). The Shoei helmet also has some great features - The visors are extremely quick and easy to swap, and the visor locking mechanism works great. The visor seal is waterproof, so no worries if you get stuck out in the rain. I have no complaints with this helmet, and would recommend it to anyone. Plus it matches my 2009 GSX-R1000 beautifully. I receive a lot of compliments on this lid.
I wear a 7 1/4" hat, and my helmet is a M size. Fits great.
I love that helmet. Very nice fit! It has everything i need.
A little noisy but overall a great and comfortable helmet.
Bought this X-12 on sale, Was really looking for a helmet to do well at high speeds and this does the job.
This helmet hurts if worn for longer than a half hour. I cannot return this item because I have worn it. From now on I will not be purchasing online. No support when you have an issue from either the manufacturer or the retailer.
This helmet is amazing! Plenty of ventilation, even in florida.
The night and day difference was in the fit and finish of the details made this a great produt, as expected from Shoei. Couldn't pass on this deal for an X-12!
Recently purchased the Shoei X-12 and am very pleased with it. So far it has exceeded my expectations in every way. The fit is great and it offers excellent mobility with the shell sized to match the helmet size. The ventilation and shield has almost no obstruction of peripheral vision. I would highly recommend this helmet!!
