They lowered the price on the 2004 Ghisallo to $99 from $124... I personally would spend the extra $20 to get the added vents. Find a performance coupon and it'll be yours for around $80. I LOVE my Ghisallo... that said, the best feature is the sizing dial on the internal cage, which is also used in the Furio.

Actually the Ghisallo is on sale right now at Performance for $69--most sizes and colors. I agree about the venting being superior, and it's actually Bell's top of the line right now and a great helmet.
On Sale, yes, but...Mel Erickson

Most sizes and colors? Not really, only if you call Blue S and White S most sizes and colors. I've been looking around for a new Bell with GPS for awhile and Performance has had the Ghisallo in only those colors and sizes for a couple of weeks. Right now I think either the Furio at Performance or the XRay at Jenson are the best deals. I'm kinda picky, though, and want a yellow lid. Jenson doesn't have the XRay in stock right now and it's the only yellow Bell with GPS at a reasonable price. Think I'll wait til they get them in stock.
