GMAX GM54S Hi-Viz Helmet
A MUST Buy!!
I have had countless helmets over the years but this one ices the cake. It feels just better on my head. I can see more to the sides that any other helmet and the brake light with built in sun visor is just icing to the cake! Buy this one, you won't be disappointed!

Good features, big shell size.
The size of this helmet (the shell) is very large on your head! But GMax did a good job of taking weight off of it.

On a budget?
I've had this helmet for almost 2 years now and have had no problems with it all. At the time I was light on cash but was in need of a decent helmet with ok reviews and this went beyond my exceptions for the price. Nothing over the top in features but if youre new to riding and need something quick, pick this up. I now use it as a back up/passenger helmet. As always shipping from from revzilla was spot on.

A Functional Modular On A Budget
I've always been a half helmet guy, from the entry level Fuel line to my Bell Rogue. Finding a 3X to comfortably fit my large noggin was difficult.
Living here in Florida and getting around a thousand miles a week of saddle time, I inevitably end up in the rain at some point. Not just any rain...I'm talking about the kind where sane people put on their 4 ways and look for the shoulders. Me? I'm on 2 wheels and have places to go and people to see. No stopping for this guy.
Rain in the face at 70 MPH is unpleasant. It's like a billion angry garden gnomes took up their Daisy Red Ryders and are having a go at your grill. It stings. It reduces vision. It ain't fun.
Add to that the flocks of....post retirement age seniors from up north we get who are completely unaccustomed to these deluges and drive worse than they normally do. Lots of folks on 2 wheels go down.
I bought this helmet as insurance against all of the above. The price was smoking hot, and once the helmet is broken in, it's not that uncomfortable. Yes, it's substantially heavier than my wife's modular, but hers cost twice as much. It's heavy, but my over-sized pumpkin has a large and strong neck underneath it. It's also pretty loud, but I overcome that with the built in ear pockets and an inexpensive bluetooth solution.
It's also pretty durable, and stylish looking, and the built in retractable sun visor is the bees knees.
If it were stolen, I'd buy it again, seeing as how I have so much money left over from the first one.
Revzilla does NOT play around with shipping either. It arrived quickly, and I was able to track it the entire time to prevent some less than stellar citizen from snaking it off of my porch.
Pros: Comfortable, budget priced, adaptable
Cons: Heavy, a tad more wind noise than I like in a modular.

Good enough for this pricepoint
A lot of the vents and plastic on the outside of the helmet feel a little weak/cheap. The rear LED is not super bright. Overall the fit is great and the helmet has great features. I was able to fit my headphone speakers in to the little pouches built in to the cheek pads. I like the chin skirt that came with the helmet, and also that its removable. I'm sure I'll keep this helmet for a few years.

Not the best helmet in the world.
It's a cool, cheap little helmet, but or the price, it's not worth it. I bought two of these for myself and my girlfriend, and right out of the box, parts fell off. Nothing too major, just cosmetic, so I didn't mind at the time; I figured I just got a bad model, but the exact same thing happened to the other helmet for my girlfriend. after a while, I noticed the modular locking mechanism wasn't locking on the right side, now I'm not sure if this is individual to my helmet or both, I haven't checked yet, but very disconcerting. On top of all that, the sizing doesn't seem to be indigenous to the actual shell; I believe the sizing of the helmet is just more or less padding on the inside. All in all, just go for a bell revolver, or any other modular. To me, this is just a Chinese P.O.S., and I'll be looking to replace it in the near future. The only reason I haven't exchanged it was that the majority of the problems popped up whilst riding.

Excelent Helmet Great Visibility
This is a must Buy, I just recently had a few close calls that made me want to go Hi VIS. I really Like this helmet so far have about 150 Hrs on it . it is a little noisy with all of the vents open. Love the Hybrid feature Not sure how I got by without it..
If your on the fence about going hi Vis just do it. Cars notice me now it is a definite change point.
This is a very solid helmet and good price point..

Bang for the Buck
This modular helmet offers tremendous value for the $. Ample vents, slide-down sun shield, quality cushioning, easy-to-use modular design, xlnt visibility w/ the hi-viz paint, and the LED flasher in the rear of the helmet is brilliant. For $170, this helmet offers ALL of the features of helmets costing well over $500. Awesome!
