I use it and its bad arse
well ventilated and you can soak the liner when its a hot day to keep your head cool
Last time i put ice on the liner inbetween sessions and man the time i had the helmet on was way more berable
I use the exo-700

The difference between a shoei RF1000 and the X11 is air tunnel testing for downforce at high speed, a bit better cooling, and fully replaceable liner, opposed to partially replaceable.

Do I think the RF1000 is perfect for the street, while the X11 may be better for the track, sure do, air tunnel testing is great, I hate upforce on the helmet from wind. Is it worth the extra $150 or so on the street? Not to me.

Just playing devils advocate here.... I get what you were saying.
