Looking for a new youth helmet. There seem to be either the cheap (nasty?) helmets in the 100-$150 range and then the expensive ones $350+

I'm looking more mid range. The mid range helmets I have found are
M2R X2.5
Just One, J32 Raptor

M2R available locally but no one has stock in Perth to try on.
J32 Raptor is an italian designed helmet that gets good reviews.

Anyone have any recommendations? Maybe I'm better off getting a lower end one as I can test the fitment.

I have a M2R X4 and for fitting comparisons, Bell and Fox don't fit me well, but Arai and Shoei do.

Although, I will look at Soumy next time, but $450.

Try them on and go with what feels best.
My kids run Fox V1 and Fly. I bought one a Fox V3 in the same size as a V1 for a present and he hated it. Wore it for one race and refused after that, saying it hurt his head. He prefers the V1 and then the Fly over the V1.
They have tried every helmet we could find and they all fit very different, seems to be more so in the Youth sizing compared to adult
