Hey Coolrain! That's a fantastic deal. If i am not wrong X-lite is a Noolan company? How much would this helmet be in India? Double the price?

Also, Is X-Lite an L and fitting you fine?

Yeah we both got a great deal and I think buying from abroad makes a lot of sense for lids and other important accessories

Look forward to a detailed review of it after you crunch some miles on it

Ride Safe !!!

That's a very nice pick, coolrain. Shops like Regina and Chong Aik sometimes have really great deals. I picked my Shoei from Regina and I've been really happy with the quality. Did you also pick up extra visor, because it becomes really tough to source one here in India.

Phew! After a lot of confusion, choosing LS2 Atmos to MT blade and then to THH and then to Studds Shifter and then to Vega Axor A1. All because my place doesn't have any of the above brands except studds and axor.

Costed me 2690 bucks. I tried Studds shifter first and then Axor. Axor felt snug, solid and safe compared to studds.
