Here is the sizing...

Med = GR.56/57
Large = GR.58/59
XL = GR.60/61
2XL = GR.62/63

Like I mentioned, I'm normally a medium (56/57); however, I had to size up to a large (58/59) for a comfortable fit. They come with a 3 year warranty. I ordered my from ebay.de. I would expect to pay about $400-$500 USD including shipping if ordering on-line. Since I live in Germany, I paid about $380 USD. Retail here is $518-$545 USD.

I just noticed another nice feature. Besides the reflective patch on the base of the helmet in the back, the color-matching company's logo and "C2" script on the back also appears to be made of a reflective material when exposed to light.

Arai helmets mentioned looks very nice. I am addicted to white helmets and helmets with sun protection. This one looks really nice:

I used this helmet on a recent trip across asia and it is fantastic except when it rains. Fortunately it didnt rain much. I used Wiley-X goggles which were also excellent.

I had a 60mph off (was in hospital for 3 days) just north of Delhi and the lid was superb. Barely felt a thing (on my head at least).

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
