With the exception of the bling factor and race support, I think very highly of the rest. Safety rating, comfort, price, and brand name all play a part in my decision as they all fall into a great quality helmet. For example, Arai (brand name) has a great safety rating, high price, but comfort varies between persons. When I teach my MSF course, the "best helmet" question always comes up. My response is "how much is your head worth to you." 9 times out of 10, pricey means good quality, comfort, AND safety. So I can't vote on just one. My .02 cents.
