Been looking without too much success. There are some okay deals on ebay, but nothing much better than $90 shipped for a Sweep. They've got the market pretty well price control. Performance / nashbar had some clearance of last years' odd sizes, too.

Remember the sweep XC is the same thing as the R, just take off the visor.

Ghisallo is as good as Sweep

I wanted a second helmet from my 05 SweepR, so ordered last years Ghisallo. It's every bit as nice- even nicer. I got two extra terry linerpads with the Ghisallo- the Sweep liner rotted after 3 weeks of sweat. I was not happy with that about the Sweep.

I would not spend one extra cent to get a Sweep over a Ghisallo... now I use my Sweep as a winter helmet... since there is now room for a thin poly hat underneath, or a thick sweatband in the summer. The hype about extra cooling holes... I can't tell the difference, and I put a fair number of miles in.

My Sweep brow pad went pretty much south, quickly, also. But no matter, I have to wear a headband anywhoo. Brow pads have never been able to keep up with my sweat production. Maybe I'll try a Ghisallo.
Bell will give you free sweat pads, so who cares if they wear out fast?

Same here, but my Ghisallo is still going strong! Performance sent me out a new set, but I'll have to use that Bell link next time around.
