AFX FX-50 Hi-Viz Helmet
Great Helmet for the Money!
I have the Bright Yellow one and it sure stands out! The reflectors are an nice touch too. Great for scooter riding, also the sun-shade works great with my glasses. The visor does make some noise but not all that bad. I like the way you can configure the style for different riding styles too. As for fit it is slightly rounded. I wear a 2XL and the helmet is snug at my forehead but not uncomfortable. The padding is thin when compared to other styles but comfortable enough. The cam-latch chin strap is handy and once adjusted is easier to work than double D rings.

Great Helmet for an even better price
I bought this helmet after reading all the reviews and was kind of skeptical on the fit but I went with the size of my old helmet and it fit perfect. Wore it for the first time on a 900 mile trip and no complants. Wore it in rain and freezing temps with just a hood under it and kept warm and dry. I did get to use the sun shield on the way home and a great bonus to this great helmet. Highly recommend and got lots of compliments on how visable it was among the group of bikes we traveled with.

Very good helmet for the price
It is a little bit tight in the fore head area, but I think it will loosen as it is broken in. The ventiliation is excellant. Not for cold weather. Allows good side view. A very good bang for the buck, I like the strap tightner. The face shield is so clear that you forget it is down. The sun visor does not rattle like the one in my other helmet does.

Great helmet with complete flexibility for riding conditions!
The helmet provides you with great options to allow you to use one helmet for your riding without the need to take "extra" pieces along as required by other helmets. I no longer need the extra tinted shield and the extra sun peak and no longer have to deal with stopping to make the changes. I just utilize the flexibility of the helmet while I ride, selecting either the clear shield or the tinted shield and never remove the sun peak. Great 3-in-1 concept helmet!

On line instructions for measuring fit were spot on, fit it the best. High visibility yellow is exactly what I was looking for. Only complaint the slide down sunglasses come very close to my nose--complaint is really about the size of my honker not the sun glass shield! I really like the chin strap ratchet compared to D-ring. Really easy on and off with a wide range of adjustment. I did have to trim the strap back to keep the surplus length from snapping against the side of helmet, but that is the only drawback to the ratchet style. A snap to secure excess strap would be the only improvement I would make

Say bye-bye to D rings! The only thing left to be desired is more vents otherwise this is a very awesome helmet. Please note: The color is hi-vis but not a florescent yellow, more like a taxi cab yellow.

Ze commuting helmet
Only tested few kilometre so far but I can right away say that it's probably one of my best purchased for city commuting head protection! peripheral vision is outstanding, dead angles are totally absent, wind protection is perfect as long as you don't go highway side....That's probably to only thing I have notice, helmet is sensible to high speed air flow. The new attachment device is quick and easy to buckle.
with the highViz colour you can not go wrong on urban environment street.

This is a great city helmet
I just bought a hi-vis yellow model. What a nice product. It has a built-in sun shade and retractable face shield. The air flow is adequate and it is very comfortable. The visibility to the sides is the same as not wearing a helmet. The neon yellow color stands out and I am not lost in the traffic background. I am trying to buy a second on for my passengers - but the yellow colors are all sold out. There must be a lot of people who like this helmet.
