Post helmets with higher degree of view
I thought there was a post that discussed helmets that had a higher degree of view? I will be replacing my scorpoin exo-1000 before next riding season. Presently, the Nexx helmets are leading my consideration. $400 isn't bad for a very light high end race helmet with a ton of features.

The reviews I've read on the new Scorpion R2000 say they are very good too, as is the Bell Star. But, the Scorpion, as usual, is FAR less expensive... about the same as the Nexx if you get it from the Parts Club. All 3 also flow a ton of air.

It's probably one of those "Ya can't go wrong with any of them if it fits the shape of your melon" deals.

the only other helmet thrown in there for some good consideration is the HJC RPHA 10. Good price too.
