I bought this helmet mainly because of the paint scheme, and it looks much better in person than online. In comparison to my Arai Corsair V, the range of side to side vision is the same, the airflow is amazing, and the sizing is almost the same. I feel like the AGV's interior padding is a bit more dense than the softness of Arai's, but that's neither a pro or con, just preference. My only complaint is that it takes some effort putting it on due to the bottom tapering in around your jawline/neck (then again, probably a good thing since you know it won't come off easy). In comparison to the GP Tech helmet, I would've purchased that one with it's comfort level being in the same bracket as Arai's Corsair, but the paint won me over entirely. I still wear both Arai and AGV, and like them both with there slight differences; neither one in my mind is better or worse, this is just a comparison to fit and feel.
