AFX FX-50 Helmet
You get what you pay for
The visor sometimes becomes off track, seems to be a little on the loud side

Great Value wtih all those features
Great Value on this helmet, just wanted of around town on hot summer days. Best visor clarity, almost can't tell it's down.

Very good value
I purchased this helmet to replace my aging Nolan N43. I mainly use it when riding my scooter around town. For the price, this helmet offers lots of features and represents a hard to beat value.
The smoke visor has just the right amount of tint - not too dark and not too clear. The liner is comfortable and the quick-release strap works well.
A couple of minor issues:
- The fit is more round and what I like and puts some pressure on my forehead, not a deal breaker
- The beak is not really functional, more a styling element than anything else.
Overall, a very good purchase. This helmet is a fraction of the price of the Nolan N43 and I think I like it better,

very nice touring helmet
My wife and bought these for local, warm day rides. We wanted something more relaxed then the full face Shoei RX1100's we use on longer mileage rides. They are a MUCH BETTER helmet then we thought. We have no regrets.

Delivers value more than the price should! Awesome!
Fit - As per other reviews here, a lot of complaints regarding small fit. According the AFX size charts, I should be a Medium. So I got 1 size up and bought a Large. Large fits me nicely.
Internal Sun Visor - For this price range, it's incredibly rare to find a helmet with the sun visor. Bang for the buck helmet and its totally worth it. I personally hoped the sun visor would come down a further cm or 2, but it works great either ways. Smooth sliding up and down.
I really do not have any complaints about the helmet. Would recommend!
A few things:
-The helmet bag that came in the box was really average, so I didn't use it. I used my previous helmet bag.
-Personally I find the main visor shape to be awkward, but that's my own taste and not a flaw of the product in any way.
-I enlisted the service of vPost to receive the product for me in the US and ship it to my address (Revzilla wasn't able to ship internationally for this product). I waited 2 weeks and paid extra 30 bucks for vPost service. Totally worth it!
For international buyers, you can try vPost/Comgateway/Borderlinx to help with the shipping if you have issues like me.

Good but don't believe the size chart
The one I ordered, following the size chart directions turned out to be so tight it gave me a headache every time I wore it for the first several months. I tried to adjust some of the inner padding and that has helped. But I would have gone to a medium instead of a small had I not trusted the accuracy of their size chart. Also hard to install the mic system I use.
I like the sliding sun visor. I like the clear face visor except that when it is down there is an incessant rattling in the helmet when riding. I wish the peak (duck bill, whatever) was a bit longer to shield sun glare as I drive.

Good for the price
Overall it is a good helmet. The only problem I had so far is that revzilla's website and AFX both say that for a size 60 head, this helmet is Large when usually for a 60 head it's extra-large.
Result: My head is size 60, I bought a size L helmet and it is smal.. Shoul've trusted my feelings and bought the XL one.
Still, nice and good looking.
