I've been thinking about a new helment and I've seen those made of carbon fiber. Does anyone have one? What are your thoughts? Does it feel quite a bit lighter while riding? Worth the extra cake? They sure look cool.

HJC ac-x1 is the cheapest of lightweight CF/Kevlar helmets.. and they look decent.

I use the ac-x1. Love the fit and the easily removable liner for cleaning. I was planning on a Shoei or an Arai. I was even ready to fork out the extra beans, but I couldn't see paying 300 bucks mor for a helmet I didn't feel was any better than the x1.
