OK if you have a narrow face and don't have a chin The Revzilla video review is fairly accurate. On top of that, here is some additional info. The inside materials that touch the face are on the rough side (not soft touch). I felt they were too rough even for a cheap helmet. The retractable shield has one intermediate position above the eyes and is easy to operate. However, it has optical imperfections that result in smudging small areas in your line of sight. Serviceable enough and I did not experience waviness or distortion in large areas. It does not go as low as I think it should - does fall below the horizontal line of sight, but a bit lower would be better. The cheek pads and shape of the helmet are too tight for my face. Combined with the rough material used, it made for an uncomfortable fit for me. I am a solid medium sized head of 22.5", a bit oval, and with a normal jaw #not wide/heavy/forward#. However, on this M-sized helmet my chin touches the chin guard if I make chewing motions. The chin guard is not padded. It being so close to my chin and hard plastic,I don't think it will protect me well in a crash where I'd hit my chin. The flip up part opens easy, perhaps too easy, with only one large latch. It is harder to close, sometimes requiring two hands. This hardness is only when the helmet is on my head, it is easy to open and close off my head. This means that the shell changes shape when my head is inside. The latch mechanism is metal to metal and once closed, feels secure. The flip up part does go all the way back and feels solidly put there and in the medium up setting. The weight of the helmet is also a bit forward of neutral with the chin guard down, straining the neck forward more than ideal. With the chin guard up, the weight is neutral in a fairly straight up riding position. With the guard to the rear, the weight is shifted back from vertical, again straining my neck when in an upright riding position. The side panels that cover the hinges stick out too much on the top end. You can see that in the Revzilla video too. This will, I expect, be a source of undue noise. I did not ride with this helmet so I would not know for sure. I'm returning it due to fit mainly, but these panels and the chin guard feel helped me makeup my mind quickly. The panel on the right on mine was sticking out more than the one on the left and I felt it would only worsen over time - it was repeatedly coming out of its clicked-in position and had to be pushed in to click in place after normal adjustments of the shield. So it just does not fit well where it is supposed to. The helmet smells fairly strong of chemicals, but that would probably go away with some use. The fit of the clear shield felt good and the detents for several positions up were nicely defined. If my head's shape was more agreeable with this helmet, I would have probably kept it because of the reasonable price and features, despite the somewhat cheap feel of it. As it is, it is not comfortable and I don't feel safe enough for me to have to put up with the rough lining and the less than ideal weight distribution. The color of the orange hi-viz version is nice and bright, better in person than in the videos and photos. It is a very saturated and bright orange in real life - would indeed be very visible. Bottom line, if your head shape agrees with this helmet, especially if your face and chin are narrow, it might be a good buy for the price and features. On the other hand, both my cheap Bell and an beat up old Nolan 100 are more comfortable to wear and with nicer feeling/softer inside materials. April 9, 2014
multiple helmets in one at an amazing price Used helmet for first time today about 100 miles. loved the hi viz orange. noticed cars waiting for me to go by that usually pull out and make me slow down. even saw quite a few people walking outside that seemed i caught their eye. size runs a little smaller. Initial impression is a lot of helmet for the price.probably would have to spend at least twice the money for a noticeable upgrade. Rode with gloves on a found that everything worked great. loved internal sun shield, it worked awesome. I could quickly retract it when i got to areas that were heavily shaded and was watching for deer( I could never do that with sunglasses) and then put it right back. Its great when the sun gets lower in the sky and i would want it when the road led me into the sun but not when i turned away and went into a shaded section. windshield detents were really stiff, i hope they relax a little. one handed flip up chin bar is great, i had to sort of slap it back closed to get it to lock.ratcheting neck strap is awesome. I will never own a helmet without one now.This is the best helmet for me and my full touring bike. IF there is any problem with wind noise my fairing completely removes that problem.i even stood up on the pegs at highway speed and no helmet lift and no buffeting. 59 degrees riding temp and airflow was perfect. Excellent seal around me at base of helmet. I didnt really notice the cooler temps because my head and face were so comfortable. I also can ride with chin bar up with no negative effects and still have air flow. I will only have face shield down in the cold or rain. Absolutely love this helmet so far. Revzilla was wonderful to buy from. I am going to by the misses one next. Cant wait for the next three day ride for a full test. March 20, 2014
New motorcyclist in early 2012. This was a good choice for a starting helmet. Sub $300 mark: excellent choice. I read reviews, before buying this helmet, that said some customers sent the helmet back because the sun-glass visor warped one's vision a bit, and I believe that one person said that "It felt like it was ripping my ears off." As for the sun-glass visor, they're correct in that it is not perfect. It has a slight inconsistency in the way it lets light through, of which took a little to get used to. However, it took about 10 minutes before it didn't bother me anymore. It's a very handy feature for a person who wears prescription glasses. If you know you want perfection, go for the $300+ mark and save yourself the time. With the "... ripping my ears off." comment: there is also some truth to this. I've noticed that other full-faced, but non-modular, helmets are built to let the ears pass the cheek guarding portion of the helmet with little, to no, effort. The cheek guards are more form-fitting on this helmet, and I have learned that if I put the helmet on while pulling slightly outwards on the cheek guards, I have no problem getting my ears in comfortably. The face shield DOES HAVE TO BE OPEN to put the helmet on, at least in my experience. I bought this helmet according to the sizing guide, and it does fit a little snug, but I like that. The chin strap works very well for me, though it started out too long. I was able to cut it to size, and keep it from fraying by melting the very end with some short swoops of a lighter's flame. By the way, I got the White version, and I take loving pride in the fact that others have observed that I look like a "New Age Storm Trooper." March 22, 2014
Decent price, okay quality I got this helmet so I could get into work. The guards needed to see my face, and taking a full-faced helmet off and on every time was a hassle. Plus, the bright orange color makes it easy to be seen. The downside is that you get what you pay for. The front face part came loose from its hinge a few months after I bought it. Not a big deal, since I just tightened a bolt in the helmet and it was good to go. Still, it feels a little cheap. January 21, 2014
Way Too Small I measured a Large according to the size chart. But I went ahead and ordered one size up (XL). When it arrived, I couldn't even get it on my head. I returned it and ordered a 2XL. When that arrived, I barely got it over my head. It was still too small. Not really sure how these are measured. Had to return it a 2nd time. I'm just going to have to find another helmet. I like the look and features of this helmet, but I wouldn't recommend this to anyone because it seems like the sizing is quite a bit off. January 21, 2014
Great Helmet Only complaint is that the front vent never really shuts and so there is a constant whistle at high speed but over all its a great helmet for summer riding January 7, 2014
A Little Noisy, Good Overall I love the style of this helmet, the ratcheting clip is a welcome change from the old D-rings. The screen tends to fog up more than other helmets I had, but that's only an issue before I start moving. There is a slight buzzing when going 60+ mph, but that might be fixable with some adhesive if I can find the source. November 18, 2013
Very Good Value I've put about 3,000 miles on this helmet and I love it. It's comfortable, quiet and feels very solid. There are only two negatives which are just items to be improved in the next iteration: 1) Ventilation is just average to slightly below average, and 2) the sun shade lever is not easily accessible with my Sena BT unit in place. The 1st might be affected by the Madstad bracket on my V-Strom 650 which makes the area around my helmet very quiet. The lever issue is a result of my choice in communications equipment, not the design of the helmet. November 14, 2013

A shopper asked: Will this helmet works with the bluetooth headset, I have a SENA SMH10? Does it have speaker pockets? Feb 24, 2014

Juancarlos Q: Yes it does, I have the exact same Seña model. It Was a breeze to install. Good luck. One advise, don't use the extra padding for the speakers or they will feel tight against your ears after a while you will feel disconfort. Good luck. Feb 24, 2014

Irin M: Yes the helmet I purchased had speaker covers/pockets over both ears. I don't have the helmet these days as a pick-up truck side swiped me. I tried to hold the truck off with my left hand and it is now useless, as I tore all the tendons off and smashed some of the smaller bones I thought I was safe on a BMW 1100 RT...not so. Don't ever let your guard down out there on the road... not for a second.

Joseph P asked: Just received in the mail, this mask fogs up instantly when talking or breathing through my mouth. Are there better anti fog visors I can purchase that will fit this mask? are cheekpads upgradeable? Definitely bang for the buck but Not as comfortable as my $70 helmet. Sep 27, 2013

Ken M: I have not had that problem after I opened the vent on the chin. Except for low speeds in very cold weather, fogging has not been a problem. In those situations, I simply raise the shield a bit and the problem is solved.

I've found that the helmet fits me better when I wear some type of knit helmet liner. there seems to be too much space in the crown of the helmet, and without a liner the helmet tends to move around even though it is the correct size. With that addition I'e found it to be comfortable for over 25,000 miles.

Richard M: I don't know about add-ons, but I usually ride with the the shield open to small gap. That and treating the lens with a clear plastic cleaner controls fogging for me. That's pretty much SOP for me with most full facers. Most of mine will fog or mist a little if its cool and I'm not moving with the shield down. Oct 7, 2013

Hugo Z: I don´t know about aftermarket visors, but using car wax on both sides helped with rain and not fogging it up on the inside, although it doesn´t seems to be much of a problem in sub 75° rides.
Great helmet, draws a lot of attention but it is a bit heavy on longer rides.

Juancarlos Q: SORRY to say I don't know about other visors. I had the same fogging problem but solved it by leaving it just a crack open and that took care of it in addition to improving my breathing. also not aware if the pads are upgradeable. Mine fit just fine. Oct 1, 2013

A shopper asked: How do you replace the face shields? Both inner and outer? Oct 3, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Ryan S: I don't believe it would be an easy chore replacing the inner shield. I don't think it can be accessed by removing the inner liner and I don't know how you would get the deployment mechanism reattached. As for the outer shield it should be somewhat easy. I had to remove the two outer pivot coverings to tighten the modular portion of the helmet and they were easy to remove but I felt they were going to break during the entire process. That may be the biggest challenge in the process, not breaking those pieces. After that it is the same as any helmet face shield change. Oct 4, 2013
Reply to Ryan Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
David H: The manual describes how to remove these, but it's not easy. On the other hand, I doubt you'd really have to take them off and I've never had to. It's a very cool helmet, and probably the must eye-burning bright, conspicuous one out there. The shape is really nice as well. Oct 3, 2013
Reply to David Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
JOSEPH K: I don't know. I broke the parts inside my helment. Was not worth fixing or replacing. This happen due to the size being too small and pulling the sides out to put my head in. these helments run small. Oct 8, 2013

ScooterCommuter: Just got the AFX FX140 and I have no problem what-so-ever with my prescription glasses. The retractable interior sun visor clears them and being able to swing the jaw-piece out of the way makes putting the glasses on and taking them off as easy as any 3/4 helmet. May 21, 2013
