Been an Arai user since I got my first one in 1980. In 2015 I decided to upgrade my 2002 Quantum FSS. By this time I needed glasses and Arai didn't offer a helmet with an internal sun visor. After some research, I decided on the Shark Speed R. I was never really happy with the Shark, mainly noise and main visor issues. The Shark relies on friction, not detents, for visor movement and the mechanism would loosen up constantly.
The noise issue biggest problem. I have been mainly riding for short distances since I got it, and I wear earplugs, but when my Wife and I rode together it was a real problem hearing her through our intercoms. Anyway, after more research, I decided on this:
52603

AGV K5 S. So far I love it. Lightest helmet I have ever owned. And so quiet.

How do the Bluetooth coms work for you and your bride?

We used the Chatterbox setup for years and they were good for a reasonable distance.

We started with the cheaper 5SMH models. They were OK. About a half mile line of site. Upgraded to the 10C and they are much better. Close to a mile and a half.
