Just quoted a price in Argentina

I just looked at two helmets this week in Argentina at two shops, the first was a Arai XD3 and I was shocked to find it priced at $999 USD! The second was a brand sold through BMW that was just as good as the Arai but also $999 USD. This helmet sells for $500 USD in the United States. All the domestic helmets were not worth owning in my opionion. My recomendation is to purchase a helmet before arriving in Argentina because of the huge import taxes imposed on products.

In Santiago, Chile you can find lot of good helmets, from cheapers to expensive from Us$ 100 to 500.

Lira street for Cheaper (thousands) or Vitacura and Las Condes moore expensive.
