Good Helmet, but faded
I bought this helmet for a motorcycle trip across the country. I bought the Hi-Viz orange as I felt it stood out better than the yellow. I received a lot of funny looks, which tells me it was working as intended.<br><br>I attached a Scala Rider to the helmet to be able to communicate with other riders in our group. The speakers were easy to route in this helmet, but the boom mic was annoying as the chin bar prevented me from being able to keep it in one position. The way the neck roll is attached to the helmet prevented me from using the Scala's compression clip and had to use the "sticky" mount on the outside, which didn't feel secure since it rode halfway on the rubber trim along the bottom of the helmet.<br><br>I normally ride with earplugs, but the couple times I didn't, it was very loud. Most modulars are louder than my other full face, so this was expected...although one of the guys had a Schuberth C3 and said it was quieter without plugs than other modulars with plugs.<br><br>The internal sun visor worked very well. No complaints there. It came down further than some other internal visors I have used. It could have been a little darker, but did a fine job.<br><br>The main visor took some getting used to. It has the lip to lift it dead center, where virtually all others are slightly off-set. The first detent is in an odd spot. Putting it in this position to allow some air to your face puts the visor edge in your field of view causing some visual distortion. Otherwise, the shield mechanism worked well.<br><br>Ventilation was about average. The chin vent was a little annoying to use as there wasn't a good tactile confirmation of its position when you are using gloves. Air seemed to flow from under the chin bar more than from the chin vent, so I guess, ultimately, the chin vent was a moot point for me.<br><br>I liked the single action chin lift mechanism, it was easy to use with gloves. The helmet I bought was sung but I still found myself having to put one hand behind the helmet when pressing down on the front to lock the chin bar in place. Essentially it took more effort to lock it in place than to lift it.<br><br>The fit of this helmet was good for the price point. You could tell you weren't wearing a $600 helmet, but was comfortable for an inexpensive helmet.<br><br>The biggest problem I had with this helmet was that after three days riding in the sun, the color faded. The top of the helmet started turning into more of a pastel color. The plastic vent covers actually started turning white along the edges. I contacted AFX and they said this was very rare, but they have had reports of this happening. I also contacted RevZilla and they had no problem taking it back as a warranty issue and promptly provided me store credit. RevZilla has excellent customer support!<br><br>If it wasn't for the fading, I would have kept the helmet. The positives outweighed the bad, for my use.

I really wanted to try a modular because I wear glasses. The flip down shades are excellent and the helmet is very comfortable to wear. No more switching out sunglasses!

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.<br><br>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.<br><br>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.<br><br>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.<br><br>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.<br><br>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.<br><br>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.<br><br>The helmet smells fairly strong of chemicals, but that would probably go away with some use.<br><br>The fit of the clear shield felt good and the detents for several positions up were nicely defined.<br><br>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.<br><br>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.<br><br>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.

Pleased with respect to price
As my first helmet, I didn't want to drop a lot of coin, but I still wanted something both safe and comfortable enough to consistently wear.<br><br>A modular helmet was important to me because I wear glasses and loathe the FF process of putting glasses on through the visor. Happy to report that my glasses can stay on when I put the helmet on.<br><br>Got the Hi-Viz Yellow version and people often comment on how bright it is! One lady thought I had a yellow motorcycle to match it, eek. So, not only does it get seen on the road, but also when you carry it. Which is something you will do since it has the pull-straps, not the traditional D-Ring. Been thinking about adding a D-Ring on it just so I can use my helmet lock.<br><br>The interior is adequate and comfortable, though seems somewhat skimpy up top as you can move it to the side and see the styrofoam. Not sure if that's normal for helmets or not.<br><br>As for fit, the Medium size helmet fits my 57 inch head very well, as measured just above the brow. The sizing lists it as 57-58 inches. So, seems true to size.<br><br>Here are my nits: 1. The visor is really not scratch-resistant at all and it fogs up badly at stoplights. Cracking it a bit resolves this. 2. It's a little tight over the ears getting it on, but a little assertive grabbing makes this negligible. 3. The straps under my chin can't be adjusted to fit snugly against my chin, as I've done with other helmets. So, it's strapped only slightly loosely and I'm okay with that.<br><br>Overall, a great starter helmet for the right price!

Best Bang for your Buck
Bought the hi-viz yellow - really stands out even at night.<br><br>Pros: HUGE eyeport - biggest I've seen. Modular feature works great, super easy with gloves. Easiest buckle I've found, even with gloves. Great, dark sunshield that snaps with authority and does not touch my nose, even though it comes down nice and low.<br><br>Cons: whistles a bit above 45 MPH - a leak at the top of the face shield (doesn't fit well with the gasket). Ventilation is good at speed, poor when you're stopped - but flip the visor and you're OK.<br><br>Overall I don't think there's a better deal to be found.

Great bang for the buck, but check your visor
I really wanted this helmet after seeing the photos, doubly so once I saw the features.<br><br>I honestly don't care that it's a flip up helmet, I just like the styling, the fact that it's got ample neck roll and chin valance (helps keep it quiet and warm - I ride in cold weather), great field of view, and was surprised that it's got a flip down sun visor as well. All for a budget model price!<br><br>When I took it out of the box I was impressed with the fit and finish. It doesn't look like a budget helmet, it looks like a midgrade helmet with a great feature set. All the vents and the flip down sun visor have a nice solid feel to them. I especially like that the clear visor his solid stop positions, as I sometimes like to ride with my visor cracked on hot days.<br><br>Riding with the helmet I was surprised by how quiet it was, and the balance helps offset the weight (it is a modular/flip-up helmet after all). Great fit, though I almost tore my ears off getting it on. I wear Large in just about all brands, and this fits fine on my average sized average shaped knoggin.<br><br>The one drawback, and may be a deal breaker for me...the visor is wavy. It's not optically clear like I've come to expect from other brands, even in this price range. I have *very* good eyesight, which means my eyes complain if they have to really work to see. And after a short ride the wavy polycarb visor was starting to get to me. I'll give it a few more rides, but I may have to return it. No matter how much I love it's styling and features, I can't use it if it causes eye strain and headaches. I'd easily pay $50 more for this helmet if they put a proper optically correct visor on it...or if a 3rd party company came up with one. This wavy view has just got to go.

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.<br>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.

Avoid this helmet
The face shield features mild distortion, causing an unsettling shimmer on curves. The flip down sunglasses are extremely distorted - dangerous to use. Rain pours down the inside of the shield. One screw cover blew off after 2K miles. The sun started bleaching out the orange after a week. When i removed the shield to try to seal the grommet, i was shocked at the flimsy nature of the jaw section.<br><br>WebBikeWorld review states that AFX will make good on the distorted shields. Not so - they have stonewalled me for a week.<br><br>This is an unsafe helmet.

Who knew I had a medium sized head?
Revzilla service was incredible. I am amazed at how fast the helmet got here to me!<br><br>I love the HiViz yellow helmet. The modular aspect of it allows me to flip up the front and chat normally without having to remove the helmet (like with my full face one).<br><br>I love the quick connect, and adjusting that for a perfect fit was fast.<br><br>The flip down sun visor is wonderful, but if I wanted to use my normal sun glasses (which are safety glasses), I can with ease. If the sun is really strong, I could use both at the same time as well.<br><br>I thought I wore a large helmet, but in using the size guide, it tells me that my 7 1/4 is a medium. The helmet fits snug and is comfortable - I presume some of the snug fit will relax as the padding breaks in to my head, so - as it fits fine now, I can only imagine it being more comfortable as I wear it.<br><br>I used other folks review of this product here to help me decide, so I thank those folks before my who took the time to write up their reviews!

Besides the features and price, Rezilla's video demonstration on sizing and the helmet's features made the choice easy.
R K on May 27, 2015
I bought this for my colder-weather commuting following a webbikeworld review that noted how visible this color is -- The Nolan N40 also has a high-viz orange, but the pictures and videos don't make it seem very eye-catching -- & I bought this despite concerns for the optical quality of the internal sun shade, concerns from past reviews that were born out when using the helmet. But it is good enough for colder weather commuting.

RICARDO G on Aug 18, 2014
I wanted a high viz helmet for a reasonable price that I could wear while riding my 95 Suzuki dr350se, to complete the enduro look. Great helmet at a great price. Friends say they can see me over a mile down the road cruising in and out of traffic. The top vents could be pushed toward the front of the helmet to get more air circulating, but over all a solid helmet. I love the fold down sun visor! I am right in the middle of L and XL, went with L and after a few rides it broke in, fitting perfect
Nick on Jul 21, 2014
Safety first, so aside from quality gear, HI-VIs is a must. Modular allows you the three-quarter feel, or the full face protection; nice to have the option.
The price is also attractive.
GONZALO L on Jul 17, 2014
Liked the features for the price. Especially like the color for safety, since people see your helmet and jacket before they see your bike. Hopefully it will fit well when I receive it.

Will this helmet works with the bluetooth headset, I have a SENA SMH10? Does it have speaker pockets?
A shopper on Feb 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
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.
Joseph P on Sep 27, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
This helmet is pre-ECE 22.05, correct? I ask because I was wondering if the chinbar is certified?
Matt S on May 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Matt, this is from Webbikeworld:

"The FX-140 has a "microlock" chin strap retainer. The shape of the helmet puts the chin strap in a location that can be slightly uncomfortable for some riders, as noted above. The chin strap padding is thick, however.

The helmet meets the DOT safety standard when sold in the U.S. and the ECE 22.05 standard when sold in Europe. But it's the same helmet and the same shell and construction, so effectively, it meets both standards."

How do you replace the face shields? Both inner and outer?
A shopper on Oct 3, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
DOT rated?
A shopper on Aug 2, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Yes, all helmets carried by RevZilla are DOT rated.
Folks, my head measures EXACTLY 24" around -- -should I order the LG or XL?" This is my first helment, so really not sure about fit/etc..
A shopper on Nov 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: My head is 23.5" and slightly oval (looking down at it). My XL is comfortable with the slightest amount of pressure on the top front of my head near my (receding) hairline.
I have tried other helmets and eye glasses or sun glasses don't always fit. The helmets could some padding relief for the eye glass arms. You can get the helmet on but cant get prescription glasses to sit right due to the padding.
A shopper on May 20, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Does this helmet come with a chin skirt? If not, can one be bought somewhere?
A shopper on Mar 15, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The AFX FX-140 does come with a removable chin curtain - woohoo!
