In a sentence there's no such helmet. Now if you are wanting a helmet to protect your head from the numerous things that could happen to it in case of an accident, bird strike, bug strike, etc etc.....

By the very nature, if you have a helmet with cooling capabilities (venting) it lets the hot air IN. In the heat, even hot air will cool you to a degree, due to evaporation of your perspiration, but there just ain't no miracles out there. Road Rogue is right... there ain't no sucha thang.
It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey

And to top that off, it's the nature of the beasts we ride that the air flow that would get into helmet vents, is directed up over our heads by our protective fairing and windshield. So we do ourselves a dis-service there... We sit in our self induced calm, then complain about no air flow....We are a strange lot, us Wing riders. We do everything to keep the wind off us then complain when there's no wind... You want wind go buy a GL1000 or 1100 standard and don't ya dare put a windshield on it........
