An excellent value for a very versatile helmet if you can overlook some of the short comings of this helmet. Configurations and style changes it's quite a transformer helmet that attracted me to buy it. I usually wear a Medium sized helmet and this AFX 55 Medium fit me comfortably as well. I purchased the Hi-Vis Yellow ... it's it's more like a bumble bee yellow - quite yellow vs a hi-vis yellow with that green-ish tint to it. This AFX Hi-Vis Yellow did not match my hi-vis Tourmaster jacket whatsoever.
I'd read other reviews that is was noisy; wind noisy. I ride a full dressed touring bike behind a windshield and felt I'd be safe from wind running across through the peak and making noise that others were talking about. But nope, I was wrong, definitely noisy. I rode with this FX55 helmet 1 afternoon and 1 evening with different road/wind conditions; Definitely noisier than any other helmet I've ever owned.
If you're looking for an openface with peak and shield, my wife rides with a Bell Mag9 and she is happy with it. I've worn her Mag9 too and find it to be a good helmet. I have since purchased the new Nolan N40 ... quite a bit pricier, but man do I love it. Comfortable, quiet, light, quiet ... but boy ... the price! Lots more than I've ever paid for a motorcycle helmet. But after wearing the Nolan N40, I'm convinced I'm worth it.

Excellent value for the price
The Hi-Viz is truly hi-viz. some helmets claim hi-viz but this thing is the right kind of yellow to get noticed.
It fits a little tight at the upper cheaks but I trust it'll break in
Fit and finish is better than what I would expect for a $150 helmet but certainly not a shoei or bell by any means.
The field of view is really unmatched by any full face helmet with the chin bar attached.
Overall I'd say this helmet is a very good deal at this price point.

A winner by surprise
Actually I fell in love with the orange colour and with the ability of transformation, but was impressed much more.
Being a shaved-head guy I got used to washing the linen almost every day because of sweat and stuff. Wearing this helmet for more than a month and it is absolutely fresh still.
Another point is ventilation. You don't get you brain blown out by the airflow, but it is one of the coolest helms I ever had. Maybe some magic, but it was not hot inside in 110 F and my head was dry.
Ratchet lock is also good, I'm tired of D-rings, so that was also a plus.
Maybe it is a bit noisy in open face mode, but open faces are always noisy, you can't blame them for that. Will try it in other modes and update later.
Actually that was a pleasant surprise for me, getting a helmet under $150 and having or working better than expected.
The only thing I had to do is to cut out some more place for headsets, they didn't make the seating places deep enough.

Great fit true to size, ear buds fit comfortably, very light but durable, awesome air flow even when I'm not moving! Great price and great looking helmet

Nicholas C: The style and versatility of this item appealed to me .Jul 21, 2014
Charles P B: Looks to be totally convertible! Love my ds-39, expect the 55 to be just as great!Mar 17, 2014
A shopper asked:Does the chin bar offer any protection during a low-speed accident or is it only for wind protection / aerodynamics? It appears that it is just clip-on plastic, is this correct?Nov 22, 2014
Jeremy S:It has foam padding on the inside but has some flex to it. I could see it protecting you from small impacts. I use mine for hunting; which makes removing the chin piece ideal for seeing through a scope. I've been happy with the purchase.Nov 22, 2014
