AGV Blade FX Helmet
Best Helmet EVER!!
I'm a beanie helmet woman but I love this helmet. I've had it for almost a year and I still love it. I bought the dark smoke shield and it's a looks great, I've had several compliments. I have a victory cross country tour and no baffles and I like my music loud. This helmet gives me the light weight feel of the beanie helmet and yet it covers my ears and side of the face enough for more protection without making it feel like your standard 3/4 since it sits up higher off the back of the neck. Plus my husband begged me to wear more helmet and stop wearing the half helmet in case of an accident so he's a happy camper too. I bought the white to match my bike, but I may have to buy another color to match my other bike now..I have neck issues and this helmet is lightweight enough so no problems their either.

"I LOVE IT!"
I just got it today and it looks great! It felt light in hand but that lightness was great on my head and neck. The shape is awesome and don't look big on head +++. Oh my when I hit the lottery, as a gift, everyone I know will get one of these helmets!!!

Nice Helmet but not without flaws
Honesty is the best policy. So let me be frank. I would buy this helmet again. The three-quarter fit is awesome, the clear and smoke shield are easy to remove and replace. Yes, there is some wind noise, but it's no where near as bad as a half-helm. The view is excellent and there was no weird flaws in the shields I received. I would recommend it for anyone looking for an open faced helmet. The flaw I'm not so happy about, is concerning the shield change mechanism. I ride alot, 10K-15K a year. I change from day riding with the smoke shield to after dark riding with the clear shield from time to time. In the course of just a few swaps, I lost my clear shield one day while riding..it literally fell off. The cause was due to the lock cap coming off on one side, which allowed the shield to rotate up and around to the other side, that then snapped the cap off on that side, as well as broke the plastic rim. After replacing these parts, I decided to use blue locktite on the threads of the inserts to keep them from loosening up/backing out. This has been great for those inserts, but the caps that hold the shields in continue to pop off and I've nearly lost 2 more shields to normal riding.
I do flip the lid up in traffic for airflow, then back down again as I get up past 20mph, but the caps shouldn't be a continuous fail point. I'm happy with the helmet overall, but having to buy those lock caps each time they fall off is not something I expected. They run $13-$18 depending on supplier. If you do pick this helmet up, just be aware that those threaded caps could come off and it might behoove one to purchase an extra set of those visor caps.

dollar for dollar can't be beat
Very pleased with this helmet. No where near as loud as other 3/4 helmets I've used in the past. Sizing chart was dead on. Quality appears to be good for it's price point. Now for the bad and this is more personal and really just nit picking. the faceshield looks longer in photos then in reality. The cheek pads on the straps are a bit too thick. Maybe just need getting use to. Top vents I couldn't feel if they actually provide any airflow because the cushioning blocks all air flow. No ear pockets so installing helmet speakers or any ear buds that protrude are a no go without some modification. All in all I do like the helmet and would recommend it.

Goggles or glasses mandatory
Giving it 5 stars because it does exactly what a 3/4 helmet is supposed to give to its owner. I've never owned one before, having full face only, so this is very new and exciting to me. You get a total panoramic view, the feeling of "flying" that we all want in a motorcycle is really achieved. However, I feel that you must wear goggles or glasses with this, even with the visor down.. and you pretty much have to have the visor down all the time, there is a tremendous whistling noise even at 15+mph. The wind turbulence when the visor is down is very noticeable and your eyeballs get a lickin' on any long commute or higher speeds. Ive tried tilting my head down, same thing. Again, this is not a knock on this helmet, its open faced and Ive always worn full so Im sure its normal. In a way... it makes you even more connected with the road, more like FLYING! In a full face you are so isolated in every way... theres always a give and take. 5 stars, love this helmet, make me love riding even more!!!

Amazing helmet I love it.
Most helmets fit me small. When I ordered the blade I thought I would need to return it.When I tried it on it was like I had it custom made. What a great fit.It feels very light. Has a quality feel. I am extremely happy with my purchase. I bought the sun visor shortly after. With the visor down it sort of looks like the Robocop helmet. Only down side is the wind noise but this is to be expected with this style helmet. I use earphones so no problem for me. I would of bought this helmet at three times the price. And Revzilla has made the whole purchasing experience of a joy.
