Criteria
- good ventilation in upright riding positon
- need to have room (ear pockets) to install a Bluetooth headset
- fit - long oval to medium oval, Shoeis and HJC helmets do not fit my head
- full face, not interested in modular or adv style
- ECE or Snell rated
- would like to have pinlock compatibility
- ability to wear glasses
- reasonably light weight and quiet, no giant shells (comes in more than 2 shell sizes)

Interested in the Bell Star MIPS but it seems a bit pricey. Also LS2 helmets seem to fit well but are very cheaply priced, is something missing from them? I also take a XL to 2XL in a LS2 while I take a L in most other helmets. Suggestions, also where to buy. Many helmets are cheaper in US compared to Canada even with exchange rate. Not sure why.

Icon Airmada meets most of your requirements. Excellent ventilation, long oval, full face, reasonably light, multiple shell sizes. The helmet has a "race" fit, with a small opening so it can be a challenge to put on and take off.

I had Sena SMH5-FM installed and the speakers were a snug fit. No pinlock, but anti-fog coating is decent. Wore thin wire framed glasses without issue. Ear plugs are a requirement with all helmets, so the noise of the many vents wasn't an issue.

Icon Armada or Alliance looks like it might be something for you. I think you have to determine what shape you are then determine your price point. From what I’ve read the cheaper helmets have noise and fogging issues.
