Bought an HJC FS-10 today

My local dealer just got a truckload of the new ( for the US ... been in Europe for a couple of years ) HJC FS-10 helmet in.
I like the idea of the internal visor which is why I bought it.
It is not Snell rated ( on purpose ). But if you read this article, you may never want to wear a Snell rated helmet again.

I've owned nothing but Aria's and Shoei's.

But I like the looks and concepts of a lot of new helmets on the market, is that the carbon fiber one you have?

Let me ask it just me? when I grab other brands of helmets, the inside seems so much less than what I own (corsair, SZ-M flipshield) I just don't know if I could keep them on for long.

Are my fingers deceiving me or is the inside less comfy than the higher-end helmets?

I have no experience with anything else except a Bell (in the 70's no less :wtf )

I tried the FS-10 and the RF-1000 on back-to-back one day, and my thick head says there IS a difference on the inside. I really wanted to like the FS-10, but I'm really leaning toward the RF-1000 now.

I have worn a RF-1000 for two years. So far I have only 3 negatives.

1) It is noisy. Some people say the more vents you have, the more noise too. They are probably right.
2) Only the cheek pads are removable. It would be nice to remove the whole interior for washing.
3) Although the visor can be cracked open slightly, it does fog easily.
