I think the OP helmet is a race car helmet. It does look HOT with very little ventilation. It is very cool looking. I wear a Shoei Multitech modular. Faceshield goes up on hot days for extra ventilation and the whole front lifts up at all stop lights/signs for extra air. But I live in the PNW and even in summer it's not that hot around here. If I lived in the SW or SE I think I'd be wearing something else.
