Great helmet, awesome purchasing experience
This a great looking helmet and extremely comfortable. I have the black Grid with the dark smoke visor. It's a much snugger fit than my much cheaper and older HJC but also more comfortable. I ride a black, white and silver Honda CBR 600RR so the black looks great! I've only had it for a couple of days but am very happy with the helmet and Revzilla for making it easy to find it.

I'm very pleased with the Grid. It is all I hoped for. Light feeling, good snug fit, keeps the wind out from underneath, decent visibility and E22.05 rated which I insist on.
It's tight going on and requires me to wiggle it some to get my ears right but that's a minor inconvenience. The visor is very positive on its stops and does not vibrate at speed. The only reason for the 4 on durabillty is that I've only used it for a month. The inner padding can be replaced & mixed and matched in thickness as desired.
Chin ventilation is great. As others have noted less so on the top vents but adequate. Not a hint of fogging in chilly weather.
Overall this one's a definite keeper.

Buy it ...you'll look awesome in this!!
Coming from my AGV K3 Basic this helmet is a definite upgrade. With a 59cm head the ‘L’ sized AGV K3 Basic was very tight on my ears and even after 18 months was still folding them over—inserting spectacles is doable for me but a chore. The ‘L’ sized AGV Grid by contrast appears by my feel to have a slightly less oval shape which suits my head a little better. The ear cutouts are a welcome relief and inserting my glasses after putting my helmet on is much easier albeit the recess for these is a little high for me—maybe my ears are low ;)
In 30+ celcius temps here with 90+ humidity in Townsville, Australia during summer, the AGV K3 Basic used to make a big wet sucking sound when it came off my head—good airflow was not one of its better points but it’s a budget helmet after all. Whilst I CAN'T feel the air-flow across the top of my head with the AGV Grid, the proof of its cooling is evident by the fact that the top of my head/hair is dry when removing the helmet in the same summer temps. Only the back of my head just under the occipital ridge is damp with the AGV Grid—a testament to its good cooling capabilities. With the AGV K3 Basic I spend most of the year riding with either the visor up or removed completely as my face gets too hot to have it down. The AGV Grid by example I can ride around at urban speeds with the visor down all the time due to the better air flow from the chin and brow vents--except when stuck at the lights.
Occasionally there is a noticeable whistle with my AGV Grid when moving into the 3/4 tuck which I imagine is due in some part to the vent arrangement but overall the helmet is noticeably quieter than my AGV Basic—a welcome improvement.
External shell size wise, it is noticeably larger compared to my equivalent sized AGV K3 Basic which I attribute mainly to the external vent ridges running along the top of the helmet.
I have been whistled at twice and received many admiring looks from female backpackers on the island where I live and whilst I would like to pretend that this was due to my stunning good looks I realise now that it is more likely the Sun & Moon graphics that are the cause of admiration and attention ;)

Great value for the price.
Replaced a GP Tech. This helmet is almost just as good, but at a better price. The look is great, unique, and stylish.
Could not be happier with value and service from Revzilla.

Awesome looking helmet
This is a great helmet overall. I absolutely love the graphic. My other lid is an Arai Corsair V so that's what I have to compare to. The AGV is not quite as plush on the inside meaning I can feel the hard foam in some of the padding instead of softness like I'm accustomed to. It's not loud by any means but not as quiet as the Arai. The airflow is very good but here again not as good as the Arai. I guess what I'm saying is that I'd buy it again but I wish Arai made this graphic in a Corsair V.

An incredible helmet. A little painful to put on and take off but once on the bike you forget that you are wearing a helmet. If it is comfortable when you first put it on, it's too big for you and will move around at speed.
It is very light, good visibility and air circulation. The visor is easy to open and close and the interior is beautifully finished.
Despite the tight fit it has plenty of room to slide in my prescription glasses.

Great helemt and fit for round headed riders
This is my second helmet. Coming from the Icon Airframe, this helmet fits more agreesive and first big difference I noticed was the noise level on these are amazing comparing to the Airframe. Weight is about the same. All and all this helmet would be great fit if your head's not on the narrow side. I've tried on the Arai RXQ, Shoei RF1100 and X12, none of them will fit my round head perfectly.
