I really wanted to like this helmet
I really wanted to like this helmet but you get what you pay for. First the positives. The helmet arrived to the west coast the day after ordering. I love the chin strap buckle. Its easy to use even with gloves on. I also like that the helmet has wide field of view. There is absolutely no blockage of vision even with the full face shield on. As far as size, I was right in the middle of the med sz range. I should have ordered one size up. Trying it on it was snug and I figured it would break in. I forgot to take into account the skull cap I wear and a full face balaclava when the weather gets cold. Overall, the helmet wears small. Its a great helmet for about 50mi, unfortunately I have a 75mi commute. There is pressure on the forehead area and the ear cuffs don't completely cover my ears. I understand some of my unhappines is the fitment issue. That aside the reason I chose this helmet was its ability to configure to several styles. I have always been a 3/4 open face helmet but I wanted something to wear when the weather turned. My overall idea of these type of modular helmets is they try to be too many things and don't do anything quite right. The plastic pieces (chin bar, visors) feel made from cheap plastic. The chin covers are very cheap and come off when I grab the chin strap to put the helmet on. Ive thrown them away. Ive tried all configurations and the helmet is very noisy. The quietest is with the full face shield and chin bar. However the face shield has no raised edge or stub to raise and lower the shield. With the chin bar on there is no way to raise the shield as it sits flush with the bar. The loudest style is with face shield only. Ventilation is adequate. Although I do not feel air moving through the helmet, I can tell you even in 100+ temps the helmet is not overly hot. I assume this is because of the passive air vents. I am neutral in recommending this helmet. Overall I don't think the pros outweigh the cons. You're going to get what you pay for. This is helmet marketed as do-all, which it may be. It just doesn't do it well.

Great product. Versatile. No regrets!
The helmet is a great bang for your buck. I can change it however I want, if I'm going on a quick trip I strip it of everything except the small visor. I plan on using the full face during the winter. There are some small Cons though but for the price most of them will have these. Keep in mind that most of what I've used are expensive full face lightweight helmets. I have not tried this in full-face(too hot in FL). For the price however(and even just convenience) this is the perfect helmet.

Pros:
-Versatile
-Stylish
-Surprisingly Comfortable
-Amazing bang for buck
-Good quality

Cons
-Noisy(worn other half helmets and this is noisiest)
-Good airflow yet feels hotter than others
-Feels heavy(comparing to high priced though)

If someone made this helmet in higher price range quality($500-$600) with low weight and less noisy, I would stock up on them and never want anything else.

Great helmet for the money!
I wore this helmet for two 6 hour stretches with temps in the mid 80s and high humidity and so far I am very pleased. When I first got it I was concerned that it was too tight but after an hour on the road it felt perfect and stayed that way. I have only worn it with the chin bar removed on the road so far. The long face shield is great and the slider for the sun shield is easy to operate once you get used to its location. The chin bar feels very sturdy but the visor parts feel a bit on the flimsy side. The only other con I can find with it is that the face shield doesn't have a tab on it for easy lifting when you use it with the chin bar. There is a recess in the chin bar for you to get a finger into to lift the shield, but a tab would have been easier to find with a glove on.

Overall, a very versatile helmet at an exceptional price.

Cost effective and well equipped for price.
This is a really great helmet for the price, and comes with a lot of features. I have to agree with other reviews that the large visor feels a little flimsy, but fortunately I never really intended to use the helmet in that configuration. The helmet is sort of loud, but the one I was using previously wasn't much different so it doesn't bother me. If you are planning on using with a headset, etc, it may be an issue however.
My favorite aspect of this helmet is the field of view, which is one of the main reasons I bought it. You can see absolutely everything, and on my bike this means being able to see the mirrors and instruments without having to move my head AT ALL.
It is also exceptionally comfortable, and I can work the quick release, all the vents, the face shield, and drop down with my gloves still on.
Drop down is also super handy, but my only complaint is that (on my head anyway) you can see where it ends around the nose, so if you are turning or otherwise looking to the side, the line is right where the eye opposite the direction you are looking needs to be pointing to see normally. (I.e. making a right turn, edge around nose obstructs vision of left eye, unless turning your head to an exaggerated degree).
Bottom line though, for the price, and overall, it is a really great helmet, and very versatile.

A nice buy for the price.
So far I am enjoying this helmet especially the styling and the versatility, the nice large face shield gives a nice field of view, but it is lacking in the air flow a bit.

This product is good if you don't want speakers
Just got the Sena SMH10R and they will not fit in there properly. The cheek pads just have a piece of material for the speaker to go behind, which is not enough room. So now I have just wasted money on a Sena unit I can not use, or I will end up having to buy a new helmet that will accept the unit.

Also, the chin bar will not fit on there with your head in the helmet(could just be me with my large jowls). And one of the thumb screws broke within the first week of use.

Great idea, not so good execution.
It has very nice features, it is my IDEAL helmet, but its not without flaws. Peak is flimsy and can't find a decent location for my scala. It's still good in other configurations.

Generally fair
The size is just perfect to the indicated value. It´s a little bit too hard inside. Noise level is high. It has so many vent holes but you don´t feel the airflow inside. Outside on the helmet it says that chin guard is not an approved protection.

Large Visor, chin bar is minimal, and has a clean look.
James B on Sep 2, 2016
Great helmet when looking at feature to price ratio. has ratchet chin strap small feature but over time, alot faster and is as comfortable as D rings, the adjustable settings on this helmet help to modify to the desired aestetics also. Apparently wind noise is a problem with this helmet, however i dont do alot of high speed riding, so this seems perfect for me

Very versatile helmet. Good for mountain riding yet modular enough to circulate air in warm to hot climates. Have worn this helmet for one year and love it.

already have afx 50 helmet and wife wanted one similar with more protection
Jim P on Jan 14, 2016
It has the look of a modern adventure touring helmet. The modular nature of it changing to 7 configurations was impossible to pass up. I can change this helmet so it never looks out of place on a dual sport, sport, or standard motorcycle. Great value.

Looking for a full-face helmet for cold rainy days, this was one of my first search results and looks quite cool. I especially like the large visor, a feature I didn't realize I wanted until I saw it. I frequently wear a baseball cap under my helmet to shield my eyes from the sun, and I hope the visor will fill that role.
Geoffrey H on Oct 4, 2014
Because of the way the helmet changes and the tinted visor feature

When is the afx fx-55 helmet going to be available?
A shopper on Sep 19, 2013
BEST ANSWER: If you pick a size and color, the unavailable notification say it is expected to ship in mid-January 2014.
If I buy it in preorder, when can I expect to receive it?
A shopper on May 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I revised the helmet before the planned time by one day
Is this helmet Snell, ECE and/or DOT?
Brian S on Oct 15, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The FX55 is DOT/ECE 22.05 approved.
Do we know if the added chin bar actually makes it into a full face reinforced helmet? Or is just a visual non-impact functional bar?
A shopper on May 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I believe the helmet bar is more for protection from the elements and small debris like rocks and branches. It won't protect your face as well as a full molded chin bar but will provide more protection than a helmet without one. Now understand this is just my opinion since I ordered the helmet in April with an expected ship date of late April which has now been pushed back to June due to it being on back order. I just returned from a trip to Georgia. I live in upstate NY and wanted a modular helmet since it was 25F degrees here when I left home and arrived in Georgia with 95F. Unfortunately still waiting for the helmet to arrive. I can give you a better assessment when it gets here. My friend has a shark modular helmet where the chin bar folds all the way back so he can ride with it open. His helmet was over $400 new. He still chooses to wear a half helmet when it gets super hot. We were dying in 95 degrees facing the sun at highway speeds in Georgia. Any helmet will provide some protection, just keep the rubber side down. Ride on!
I would like to know if this product still on preorder?
A shopper on Mar 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is.
What's the shape?
A shopper on Jul 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Well, my head is fairly oval, and this helmet fits me well.
On the other hand, this is the only full-face helmet I've ever owned, and only my second helmet, and I have never been 100% sure it fits me correctly.
When I first got it, the idea that it might fit over a balaclava was ridiculous. Over a year of wearing it 5 days a week, it has loosened a bit (I wear a balaclava in winter), but when I put it on while wearing earbuds it felt like it was trying to crush my ears against my head. If I thrust my chin forward it will touch the front guard. And I'm not sure the lower edge of the helmet sits as low as it is supposed to.
I bought an XL, which is what the size guide said to get based on the measurement of my head (Including the advice to round up for AFX helmets).
How much does the helmet weight?
A shopper on Jul 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Would I be able to attach a wireless communication system onto this helmet? Or would there be complications with doing so? Example: Scala Q3 system....
what is the fit like? I tried a speed$strength ss220 or 2500 their version of this type (removable chin bar) of helmet and in an XL my chin hit the bar.would I have the same prob with this?
I wear a 7 1/8- 7 1/4 hat size and in speed & strength I wear an XL.
A S on Jun 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: To be honest with you, I'm excited to see what it is like. I ordered the helmet from Revzilla in April but have yet to receive it. The expected delivery date continues to be pushed back. I suspect a manufacturing issue. I just sent an Email to AFX to find out why the delay. As soon as I receive the helmet, I'll try to answer your question in my review of the product. Sorry I couldn't help more.
How does this helmet fair against weather such as rain?
A shopper on Sep 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Helmet is good in all weather conditions
Is this helmet compatible to install a headphone communication system?
A C on Jul 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not the best choice for this. I have a few helmets and use this one for local riding without the brim and chin piece. The way the chin piece attaches and detaches interferes with the way my Cardo Scala G9X attaches.
I also found the wind made the brim piece rattle and I removed it after my first ride. Nice inexpensive helmet.
