I love the design of these helmets. Fit is perfect (I've got a M-sized head).
The pity is that even the smallest size was way to big for my girlfriend's head.
It's definitely a "men's" helmet
Thanks from zohsix01

I too plan on buying this helmet in a couple weeks.

Make sure you shop around. I've heard this helmet can be had for under $1200 shipped.
Do NOT buy from those assholes at revzilla for the $1400 sticker price...

It's a great helmet, extremely lights and your range of vision is huge. It's fits completely different than any other helmet I've ever had and its not a bad thing just takes a minute to adjust, one you do it's like the helmet isn't even there. It is loud and sometimes it can be annoying removing and inserting the rubber plugs for the air vents. Overall a phenomenal helmet, I'll probably buy another one before to long. Also if your shopping around championhelmets.com has good prices, it's out of Europe buy when u take away the VAT tax it's hard to beat them.
Thanks from Sly

Champions can't beat the other place in Spain. Others have taken my advice and agree.

I have the corsa, which I believe is the same as the corsa minus the fancier carbon. I like the fit, it has a great FOV, only complaint is that it does fog very easily on cooler days.

I have the Pista GP too. I wore an Arai Corsair V in a Large, and wear the Large in the Pista.

The helmet is much louder than the Corsair, in fact almost unwearable without ear plugs. Maybe I have just gotten so used to wearing them I don't remember what its like without them though.

The Pista flows more air than the Corsair V.

I bought mine from Europe, so it has the sweat band which is cool. It fell into my eyes once though!

As far as wind resistance its hard to really say the difference.

With all of that, doing it again, would I spend $1000 on the Pista or $800 on the Corsair - I would probably go Corsair V honestly.
