Did you check champion sports? I guess, there are couple of helmet shops on Tilak Road as well. Not sure if they sell hi-end helmets though.

Check 'probiker' next to ABN AMRO ATM off MG Road if you are looking for Bike accessories in Camp area. DSG (planetdsg.com) shop is also nearby in lane next to Marz O Rin.

Shakti Sports has opened a bigger shop on Tilak Rd (with the usual low-end ones, Studds/Volga etc)

For high-end stuff check out the planetdsg shop as sukiwa suggested.

+1 and to add on to it. If you are not a big "imported helmet" fan. Go to this place. Its some Vega showroom that also stocks helmets imported by Vega. After spending 1000's of bucks on Cross, AGV and what not, i finally found the Vega Boolean to be an excellent buy for Rs.1950. The best part was, they can service your Vega helmet to the tiniest screw! A friend got the entire front jaw portion changed on his Vega Boolean! And thats cause this is a Vega store.

Cross is good but expensive and you will never ever find a replacement visor for less than Rs.350. Also, they are all tinted and no clear visor is available. The visor locking mechanism changes every 6 months on newer models and then you spend additional Rs.100 to change this mechanism to fit the visor available at that point of time. So a 3k helmet will cost you Rs.500 every 6-8 months (sooner or later based on how soon you screw up your visor.)

Are you talking about DSG (Dream Sporting Gear)? They also have a website(PlanetDSG : The only Indian store for Motorcycle Riding Gear..) where you can buy online.

EDIT: Just checked, they don't have Helmets on their website.

I found 3 shops on MG road selling helmets. They were all sports shops. Most stocked Safe, Studds, Vega and other local brands.

I was looking for a AGV, but couldn't find it.

@Technocrat

I checked out the shop diagonally opposite Marzorin. Some Kukreja sports... He does not stalk AGV anymore. There was another shop just after the crossing which had a lot of stickers but just Studds and Vega.

I bought a CROSS Helmet from Pro-biker a few months back. The overall construction and padding on the inside is good. I also liked the fact that you can remove the inner padding and put it to wash.

I agree though with Nilesh about the Visor on CROSS Helmets, they do not have a clear visor and you surely will face problems while riding at night. Visor replacement is also a tad expensive. Mine is already got several gravel scratches on a ride to bangalore.
