    Looking to replace my old very heavy modular helmet with new LIGHT WEIGHT quality helmet, below are my ultimate specs, looking for recommendations.
    1. Light weight 3 to 3.5 lbs
    2. Best possible periffial vision
    3. Ear pockets for blue tooth speakers
    4. Flip down sun visor
    5. No more than $350.00
    6. Low profile if there is such a thing in modular helmets

    My current helmet is a viper rs-v131 and it would fit your specifications it has a Bluetooth system built into the helmet can be paired with mobile phone etc also 2 helmets can be paired to give bike to bike comms up to 100 yards
    However I don't know if they are available your side of the pond as EU safety regulations work in a different way from US

    Ended up spending twice the money but I believe I got one of the best helmets on the market and it fits all my needs, purchased the Shoei Neotec

    You can not go wrong with a Shoei helmet. Great choice.
