get yourself

off to your local George White outlet. You will pick up an Arai or Shoei for the same money.

which helmet

The AGV Stealth SV and the HJC FS11 are both reasonably good budget helmets. 

If you really want the best protection then I would go with arai however this may not be for you. 

So the AGV Stealth SV is as i have said a reasnably good helmet, with good safety features just like the HJC FS11. To fully understand which helmet is best for you, you will have to try them on. In my experience you don't usually have the head shape to fit both helmets, you see the AGV shell shape is a lot different to the HJC. 

So as I said try them on see which one fits the best. It is best to keep them on for 5 minutes at least as well to make sure they dont give you a headache. 

You never know neither of them may fit, but make sure the one you choose is a good fit. To do this go to a reputable dealer (such as Hein Gericke) as they will be able to fit you properly and proffessionally and you know that the helmet has been looked after. 

I personally would never buy a helmet online or second hand because at the end of the day you only have 1 head and you dont want a damaged helmet. 

So there is no definite answer on which is the best helmet, if all depends on your own head shape

hope this helps buddy =]:laugh:
