I purchased a Schuberth C3 and a Shoei Multitec in 2011. The Schuberth is only used for about 25/30 days of each year but the Shoei is used weekly. Interestingly the Shoei, despite the more frequent use, is in better condition. I have always felt the Shoei was a better quality item especially because of the locking mechanism on the flip front and the manner in which the lining has kept its integrity.
I will shortly purchase another Shoei and this time it will be the Neotec or its equivalent. Arai is also a make that I have big respect for but sadly they do not make a flip front. I am aware of the reasons why.
