AFX FX-140 Modular Helmet (Size XS Only)
Great helmet, save for the very poorly designed visor changing system.
I have been using this helmet daily for a few months, and I'm very happy with it, save for the visor changing system.
The lining comes out easily for cleaning, and after hand washing, air dries in less than 24 hours and looks/smells like new again. The modular features and vents allow for great airflow, and my field of vision is not limited. It is not heavy, and I can hear things around me without added wind resistance noise from the helmet.
The visor changing system is poor because there is no real way to take off the covers at the point of rotation without snapping off one of the attachment tabs - so changing the visor means damaging your helmet. Also, there should be non-clear visor options that are less shaded, as the silver mirror is so dark that it cannot be worn at night. (I don't know about the blue mirror option.) Since there is an interior shaded visor, there is no need for such a dark exterior visor - especially without a quick release system.

Good solid helmet.
I purchased an extra small AFX fx-140 helmet in January of 2016. The fit & finish was good and so was the styling. I have used my helmet to commute for about less than two hours each day, Monday to Friday. I had been happy with the helmet till about a month ago when my pearl white helmet started changing color. I think it used to be orange and with slight use and exposure to the elements the white paint is giving away to the orange. As it stands, I'm not happy because my white helmet is currently an of-white color that does not match my bran new white bike. I also had to disassemble & repair/ improve the face/visor mechanism, which now works well. Besides these two issues I am satisfied with the protection it provides.

Absolutely perfect for the price
I have been using this helmet since the start of the season and have been pleasantly suprised by its light weight and features. Slightly on the smaller side, but fits very nicely. One downside is that when I tried installing my Sena Bluetooth on the helmet, I had some trouble since there is no space to fix the thing on it. The inner visor switch happens to be quite close to my Sena, which is also not helpful.
Overall, I love this helmet, especially while downtown, since the visor stay open all the way to the back of the head and does not get stuck in the wind :)

This helmet is very comfortable
The AFX-140 modular is my second helmet and most preffered. I wear a small and this fits me perfect. I got the fushia and love the attention when zooming about. It's effective and feminine. I definately love the feature of being able to pull the shield up and all the way back allowing you to communicate without having to take it off. Highly recommend.

Highest Quality, Lightweight, Quiet and Nice Features
This is my first modular helmet in 15 years. My last one was heavy, bulky and noisy. I was surprised at how light and quiet the AFX FX140 helmet is. This is a very high quality helmet. Makes me wonder why people spend $500 + for a Shoei or Arai. I guess they don't know about the law of diminishing returns or are status needy, because this helmet provides the same protection and offers great features at a fraction of the cost.
I love the ability to flip up the chin bar while stopped at a light, or a quick trip to the store. Very important here in Phoenix. Also, for riding around town, I flip the chin bar 180 degrees, completely to the back on warm days. The built in, flip down, shaded visor is a bonus. Overall the fit is excellent, the helmet is very quiet and lightweight and the overall construction and attention to details is of the highest quality. Definitely recommended. Came quickly and well packaged from revzillia.

I've now purchased two of these helmets, really pleased with them. Very comfortable, with a ton of features. Fit is spot on, and while noise downing isn't the best feature of this model, it is fine for commuting.

Excellent value helmet
This comes exactly as advertised. If you don't want to drop$500 plus on the big name brand, high end helmet ...this in the one. Yes it is louder than the expensive ones but it's not obscenely load. Good ventilation and I love the pilot sun visor. At this price point you can get new one every 12-18 months. Additionally, not that it's exclusive, but I love the HI VIZ. I'm convenienct it's make a huge impact on my visibility, especially in traffic.
