AFX FX-41 DS Hi-Vis Helmet
Great helmet, great vision, very light, very cool looking, and great airflow.
I love the way this helmet looks especially pair with the Silver Mirror visor. Had some issues with the visor I ordered but that is another review. This helmet has great airflow so it is percect for warm days, is a little loud because of that but I ride with headphones most of the time so that takes care of that. My only issus with the helmet is that the interior visor mechanism was broke/messed up when I recieved the helmet so it scratched up the interior visor and made it so it wouldnt go up and down when I used the lever on the side of the helmet. I wasnt planning on using it anyways as I have it removed. So my only issue with the helmet doesnt matter to me as I do not use that feature. I love this helmet and I would definitely purchase another.

Cheap helmet, but some serious flaws
I got this helmet as I liked the DS look, and the drop down sun shield. It looks cool, is comfortable, fits nicely, and the sun visor works great on bright glary days :) However it is cheap, and the cheapness shows thru in the design, and I don't think the cheapness makes up for the many flaws in the design. Starting with the strap system which has a great looking ratchet buckle, BUT, however you adjust the strap, (unless you have an enormous head# there is no way to secure the loose end, leaving a big end to flap around. Then there is that great open visor. The cut out is enormous offering great visibility, but visibility is compromised by the weird shape of the visor which puts a weird line in my field of vision right where the instruments are. Then there is the noise. This is by far the noisiest helmet I have ever worn, and given that I was wearing a MX helmet before, that is saying something. I think the noise is caused by the cut away base which puts your ears much closer to the base of the helmet. The other problem with that is that now the helmet doesn't sit well when you put it down. Unlike every other helmet I have seen with a flatter base, the cut away base allows the helmet to rock :# Another major issue is the stability of the helmet. At highway speeds this helmet is very unstable, with the helmet wanting to flip from one side to the other. Its a weird feeling, and not something that I have experienced with any other MX styled helmet at the same speeds.

Love this helmet!
It may look more like Transformers than any of my other helmets but it's light and comfortable at a great price.

Ended up with one of these bad boys . It was 100 degrees out when I tried this helmet for the first time. The venting alone was perfect. I wear glasses so the sun visor was awesome and the quick release strap made me realize what I had been missing out on. For a sub 200$ helmet I'm sold every time I wear it even on trails. The fit was snug and felt solid while riding street and roughing it over rocks. As far as sound, I personally enjoy my loud fmf so it doesn't bother me. But it isn't so strong on the sound blocking. Overall I think this is a great product I would happily buy one again and refer to other people.

For the money you can not beat it!
Size chart was perfect!
Adjustable air sliders!
Quick chin strap is clutch!
This helmet DOES work with goggles as well! I did a 1350 Adventure ride with this helmet and I could not be any more pleased!
A little noisy in the helmet but you get what you pay for!

Great starter helmet. Perfect for hot climates. Looks badass.
I've owned this helmet for 4 months now and am quite pleased with it. The helmet looks incredible. It is the best looking dual sport helmet there is, I think. The biggest gripe I have with the helmet is the fact that the visor doesn't seal well, allowing rain to come through and making it very noisy. On the plus side the helmet very cool in the heat, on the downside I have to wear ear plugs because the wind noise becomes a problem at high speeds. The drop-down sun visor works well, though it only provides a small amount of tint so its better to just use a pair of polarized sunglasses. The outer visor and liner are both very easy to take off and clean. The helmet is built well and will protect you from an impact but be warned that the visor and vent covers are very flimsy. For the price this is an excellent helmet, especially for beginners who aren't ready to sink a ton of cash into their gear yet.

I'm a new rider and I wanted a helmet that was high on quality, lots of airflow, and gentle on the wallet. This helmet was just that! I ride a flat black Monster 696 and the flat black FX41 matches it perfect and with the bill on top taken off, it goes very well with the naked/street fighter style. I love it. The airflow is perfect, just pretty noisey but I'm totally fine with that. The drop down smoked visor on the inside is great too! That saved me from having to buy a pair of shades. I have a more round head and was exactly in between sizes for the medium and the large, but the video suggested going with the size down and that's exactly what I did, it fits and feels great! I ordered this helmet late Saturday night, received an email that it had shipped on Sunday, I had the package by noon on Wednesday!
