AFX FX-39 Dual Sport Hi-Viz Helmet
A little noisy and heavy, but great value for the money. Super comfortable and visibility is good.

Great choice st this price
I'm just getting back into motorcycles. I bought a KLR650 after a 15 year absence from off road riding. I started out using my ancient Moto 4 and my son's modular helmet and I chose this helmet after my research and I bought it in Hi viz yellow. So, those are the only ones I can compare it to. I used the AFX website for fitment measurement and the size is perfect for me. This helmet is a lot more quite than those 2, fit was better, and I like the visor better than goggles for the street, visibility is great. Can't beat the looks and it doesn't feel heavy. Ventilation?, well you don't feel wind in your hair, but it is pretty cool. Protection?, well it's not a Bell or Aria, but it is DOT approved, so I trust that. Overall, I'm really pleased with the helmet and feel you can't go wrong with it at this price point.

Excellent value for price
Great helmet for the price, only problem is standard lense fogs up easily bellow 45 degrees F. Would recommend the cold weather anti fog lense if doing cold ridding.

Best bang for your buck!!
Bought this helmet before going on a week long adventure trip to Utah. All I can say is awesome helmet for the price. Yes, there are better ones out there if you have disposable income I guess, but for the price the fit and function of this helmet is incredible!! Zero hot spots and the venting is incredible. Yeah, on the cooler mornings the inside of the shield fogs up a little but once you get moving, it goes away quickly. I've found that to be the case in ANY helmet though. As for noise, I actually found it rather quiet for how ventilated it is. I wear plugs on the long highway sections anyway. Super wide field of vision which I find an added benefit. The bill doesn't catch a lot of wind either. I'm 5'11 and with the screen in the down position on my GSA I can turn my head and look around freely without any drag on the helmet. I was actually worried about this switching to a DS helmet and it performed GREAT!!! One would also think that for the cost things would start falling apart quickly but it is staying solid

Best Helmet I own
I have 3 helmets and have payed hundreds of more dollars for them than the AFX FX-39. This is by far the best bang for the buck. It not only looks good but fits well. With the vents open airflow is excellent and the wind noise is very low. I would and have recommended this helmet to many of my friends. If you are looking for a great helmet at an affordable price this is the one for you.

Having only compared it to one other owned helmet, my point of reference is slightly limited. It seems a bit heavy, but everything else is as described by other reviews.

Great helmet for price.
I've owned few other helmets to compare too, none were a dual sport. My Sena comm system fits nicely in it. Its a bit loud but I don't wear ear plugs either. Nice quick strap. Have to get used to seeing visor while in up position. Can't beat the price.
