    Have a look around Moto Mate in Rivonia, I still kick myself when I
    see some of the same things I have going for way less than I paid
    there, even against other Moto Mates. That's about the closest you
    can get in narrowing your options outside of real world testing/use.
    And so for other stores too.

    It's hard to try and recommend things that have great reviews
    elsewhere or online and are not available here and not at the same
    price if so either.

    With visors though, it's said they can be a little less safe if
    you're really that specific, as with the hollow in the helmet for the
    visor to retract/extend.

    I would have liked one, sunglasses that fit well on your face don't
    always fit well inside a helmet. I'd take note of the mechanism on
    the visor too, it's something that could wear poorly or even break if
    the helmet has an overcomplicated mechanism or bad design for that.

    Paid around R3500 for it last year from one of the bike shops in Boksburg.

    So I ended up buying a HJC IS-17. Went to Motomate in Rivonia. After trying on what felt like all their helmets, I discovered that the IS-17 fit the best and it was priced well below my budget.
    I also discovered that my head doesn't fit properly in a Shark helmet. I'm right between two sizes, what a shame because I really liked the Shark Spartan.

    Have had a fews Shark helmets (back to back with 3). Only criticism is that they are not the quietest. But all around a great helmet for its cost. I have had all 3 of the same model and they have been upgrades on each one. Very happy with Shark.

    I believe you. I personally love the brand. It's just a shame my head doesn't fit in it.

    I am looking a for a quieter helmet, I am currently using a Bell Qualifier but I find it a very noisy helmet. Preferably also a helmet with anti fog visor, any suggestions will be appreciated!
