Anyone know what some quality helmets are? I'm thinking of picking one up for next season, but I don't know all that much about what I should get.
Any help is great. And if anyone knows of a place in NJ where I could buy one that'd be great.
Thanks.

Get an SA2000 rating.

I ordered my G Force from http://www.ompusa.com/

It was $249 - great finish and came with a free helmet bag and case. Very slick. :)

I also used their sizing guide and mine fits very nice.

Depends on your needs. How are you going to be using it?

I am a big Arai fan after buying one. They are nicer than anything else I've had (Bell, Simpson, HJC, Bieffe). Fit and finish is outstanding, as is weight.

If you don't plan on going roadracing where SA2000 is required, for autocrossing or track days M2000 is fine , usually less expensive and sometimes lighter.

So depending on your needs, go to a shop (either motorcycle or auto racing) try some on and see what fits you the best, plus get help on fit. Most people make the mistake of buying too large, which is dangerous because even when strapped on, the helmet can come off in a crash if it's too big.
