Do you mean cool as in temperature or visual appeal?
If it is the visual appeal option the Bell Moto-3 really is the only option. :)

Shoei Hornet or the Arai Your X4
HJC make something similar called the DS X4 Tactic dual sport or something like that. Depends on budget
l had the Arai X4 before when I had a GS and got rid of it after a while but at that time I was doing high miles touring and a normal helmet was more suited. I had thought about another one.

Cheers buddy I paired the lid with the Klim Viper pro goggles, the frame and the nose piece fit really snug in the opening allowing hardly any wind inwith a buff I wear this lid all year round...

I came from a sports bike to the Sled, the Ex-Zero isn’t as sealed as a full face but you only really notice it at high speed and to be honest, on the Sled, you never hit those speeds. I went for the Viper goggles after watching the review below, they’re pricey but the fit is absolutely awesome also the lens is photochromic, plus you get a spare photochromic lens in the box:-

I am surprised the DMD didn't get a mention, old school cool and Italian. Hard to find here in the Staes but fits the bill. Moto 3 is the default and if you're SUPER swanky the Hedon lids are cool. Hedon Heroine is on brand. HiFi is my dream helmet. Price tag is a tough pill to swallow tho. Heroine Classic HFI
On my long rides I like the AGV Gloria.

My favorite helmet type is the adventure helmet with a large bill and flip down visor. Great for sun, wind and bugs. I have Shoei and Arai street helmets and a couple of dirt helmets, and the adventure helmet is my favorite now. Generally, the adventure helmets will provide better ventilation, which is good in California, but my not be warm enough in other climates. As far as brand goes, it's just a matter of what fits your budget and you head.
