Default Arai Helmets

Am looking to buy a new helmet and have settled on arai as fit seems really good and glasses can be worn in an emergency.
My problem is which to go for iam am looking at saltire design and have a choice of two
the viper gt 380(approx) or
the astro r(290) approx
viper also comes with freebies(helmet city) bag visor care kit(supposedly worth over 100)
is viper worth extra.
Cheers

I got my Viper GT for 289, bag and pinlock included. Comfy lid but a little noisey - Ipod cures that.

Go for the viper, meh same as kwak got a condor and the diff is noticeable, when me and my Dad went looking for lids for him, the interior difference between the condor and all models above is a lot different, the viper etc i found more comfortable as well, all arais except the condor have pinlocks in the box as well but if you buy a tinted visor make sure its pinlock ready and try to haggle and extra pinlock
