I have a Bell. They make great helmets. Arai is very very expensive and is the choice among F1 teams but I wouldn't really delve into one of these unless you are a professional or very serious about racing. Bell will work just as well for a bit cheaper

Buy whatever fits your head the best. I'm currently using a Bell M2.

I second Ed's advice, but at least in my case there aren't any helmet dealers local to me. I had to mail order. Fortunately my buddy has a Bell M2 so I tried his on, but I ordered the G-Force with the understanding I could return it.

Bell Sport II. I should have a picture my helmet somewhere...

Buy one that fits well and within your budget.
