The Symax from HJC comes in four colors: black, matte black, white and silver.  This lid is available in sizes XS-2XL.  Be sure to consult the size chart as these helmets have a looser fit than standard sizes that you may be used to.  The helmet has a good weight distribution and comes in at 3 lbs, 14 ozs (+/- 1 ounce) for a size large. The airflow and ventilation design on this helmet is incredible.  If you are looking for the next generation in the HJC line, this helmet will give you the bang for your buck.

If you are from another country the U.S.A. supplier will ship overseas on orders for more than $300 but unfortunately not with free shipping.
