I have both the Bikerhelmets from Crazy Al's and Daytona's skull cap in Carbon Fiber, which is lighter weight, supposedly stronger and more expensive. While both are really comfortable, of the 2 the Daytona is definitely smaller and feels less cumbersome. I found the Daytona recently online in Carbon Fiber for $85.00 incl. shipping. Regular price is $154. $44.00 for gloss blk.

X2 for Daytona carbon fiber helmet.  Have had it for a couple of years or so.  Good fit, wears well & wife also has one.  Have face shields that goes with them & they work ok in rain, etc.  They usually run these helmets on sale during Biketoberfest & Daytona Bikeweek.  Best to fit a helmet in person - they can help with questions if you give them a call.

I found th Daytona to be more comfortable, and it comes with 3 brow snaps for a visor or face shield.

I looked at those, but they didn't come with snaps. I like to run a visor or peak to help keep the sun out of my eyes.
