What's this?

GMax GM54S Modular Hi-Vis Helmet

The modular design of the GMax GM54 allows the flip-jaw to rotate further back on the crown of the helmet. The further rotation of the flip-jaw not only increases the user's line-of-sight when in the raised position, but it also lessens the user's fatigue by maintaining an even distribution of weight across the helmet.

Features:

  • Inner flip sun shield is easily raised of lowered with a lever located on the exterior of the helmet
  • Distortion-free clear single lens face shield
  • Integrated multi-function red LED rear light
  • One hand, easy to use chin bar push-to-open mechanism
  • Lightweight thermo-plastic alloy shell
  • Excellent shield sealing reduces unwanted air and noise
  • D.E.V.S Dual Exhaust Venting System top, side, and rear venting reduces fogging and sweating by allowing hot air to escape from the mouth area and top of head
  • Adjustable chin vent directs air upward across the inside of the shield to help reduce or eliminate fogging
  • Large eye port for improved range of vision
  • CoolMax comfort liner and cheek pads move the moisture away from your body and the fabric dries quickly
  • Removable and washable interior and adjustable cheek pads allow for more comfortable sizing
  • Deluxe ear pockets for better fit and comfort
  • Built in speaker pockets for communication systems
  • Soft padded chin strap
  • Painted shell with high quality clear coat finish
  • Soft helmet bag included
  • Optional rear brake light kit (sold separately)

Lot of features for the money
I love all the vents in this thing. The flashing red light on the back is great for nighttime riding. I love the sun visor that you can easily bring down even with gloves on. The front raises easily and comes back down with a simple pull. Easy to operate with gloves on. I love the high viz stuff. I've seen cars, pull up on side streets to turn onto the road and they slam on the brakes when they see me.

Great helmet at a great price.
Had my doubts about this helmet because it was so inexpensive, but it has turned out to be a great helmet. This helmet is a slightly heavier then my old Scorpion Exo, however it some how feels lighter while wearing it. The sizing chart is dead on accurate, and if you have a little wider face this helmet will fit you very well.

TLDR; Don't let the low price scare you, this is a great helmet.

Great product for its price!
I ordered this helmet for four reasons: it was a modular helmet, it was available in Hi Viz yellow, it promised to have good ventilation, and because of the rear light.

The helmet did not disappoint. The modular system works as advertised, and it has all metal mechanism, which is safe. The latch to open took me some getting used to, I wish it was a little bigger and under the chin like a Schuberth, but beggars can't be choosers.

The Hi Viz yellow does not disappoint, it is truly a high visibility shade of yellow, not the canary yellow you see in pictures. It stands out quite well during the day and night.

Ventilation is very good, there are loads of options on vents to close and open, and I usually ride with all vents open because here in Virginia it's pretty humid. WIth all vents open I get no fog on the inside visor while moving, my prior helmet, a Joe Rocket RKT Prime got lots of fog inside. Hige improvement here.

The rear light is excellent. I end up riding at night a lot because of work, and adding that extra light point up behind my head is one extra layer of passive safety to help me be seen. I decided not to splurge for the available brake connection because the light is not brake-light bright, but for an extra light point it is good.

Fit is a little tight, I bought the large size, same as my other helmets, but I should have ordered extra large. I did not return to get a different size because I needed the helmet now (my previous helmet cracked when it fell in the garage), so I just ordered the extra large liner and different size cheek pads. With the new liner and pads the helmet fits great. When it gets cold I wear a Klim balaclava and even with the balaclava it fits well.

My two biggest gripes with the helmet are the cheap build quality and the way prescription glasses fit with the cheek pads.

The build quality could be a bit better, all the plastic bits on the vents are slightly flimsy and I can see I will have to be careful to keep them from breaking. Yes, it's a sub 200 dollar helmet, but even at this price point I think the plastic should have a better fit.

Prescription glasses tend to ride up on the helmet while riding because the cheek pads force them upward. The narrower pads I bought for helmet fitment helped a whole lot, but once in a while during a ride I have to push my glasses down. I wish there was a channel contoured into the cheek pads to prevent glasses from doing that, I am thinking of modifying my cheek pads to create such a channel.

Other than that the helmet is great, for the price I don't think you can find a better modular helmet.

Inexpensive yet quiet and feature rich.
My other helmet is a Shark Evoline 3 and I think I will like this helmet better. I have a very round head so finding a helmet that fits is very challenging. The padding on the GMAX GM54 is nicely thick and so compresses for a comfortable fit. I came in at the bottom of the XL range and it felt slightly large, but the fit seems right when I move it around to test. It has a lot accessories available on line and I may try the Large cheekpads when it is time to replace them. Yeah, I plan to keep it quite a while.
The noise level is a significantly lower than with my Evo 3. I can almost ride it without ear plugs and adding earplugs makes it almost quiet. In comparison my prior 2 helmets had lots of wind and road noise. I have a FDR 1300 sport touring bike and the GM54 is actually quieter when I lower my head a little compared to a raised chin position. Reverse from my Evo 3. When I raise the windshield all the way at 50 the noise level is acceptable without ear plugs.
The GM54 has lots of vents but the seal on them when closed is not that great. I did my test ride at 39-44 degree weather and with the windshield down had a cold spot on the top front of my head. With the windshield up all the way I get a little buffeting on the back of my helmet but this is less noticeable on the GMAX. On the other hand I did get cold spots on the top back of my head. I really look forward to riding with it in summer. The vent covers do feel a bit flimsy and and ill fitting. I can see putting tape over them if I were to ride a lot in really cold weather. I try to ride only above 40 so not a major reason to do so.
The chin bar mechanism seems a little stiff right now but I think it will break in. Same with the Top Gun visor slide.
The chin curtain hits your chin when you lower the chin bar but I find it acceptable and it seems to do a good job keeping wind off my chin.
The Chin bar feels a bit heavy when I turn my head but the helmet does not seem to catch much wind and twist. I feel weight, not push and the double pane windshield I have probably adds an ounce or two. My Evo 3 lightly catches the wind when I turn my head.
Right now my helmet is a bit stiff in operation but I expect that to wear in. I may try silicone spray but not yet. I can close the chin bar and face shield with one hand - nice since on the Evo 3 you have to use 2 hands. The face shield has a little tab on the lower left which is a good position for working with the left hand. Several strong detentes let you step the shield up. Also, the chin vent has 3 positions - down = fully open, closed, and up=slightly open and slightly pushing the face shield up for a very fine crack opening. Not sure how effective that last is but will find out in spring.
The Top Gun sun shield is on a continuous friction slide, This is much nicer than the click all the way up/click all he way down on other helmets since I can set it at different levels - from touching the tip of my nose to just a little down to reduce street light glare. It is very dark by my standards. which is problematic for me since I like to drop it 1/4 of the way at night and tilt my head to reduce glare from oncoming cars. However, it is so dark that seeing the road and markings is hard. I ordered the Amber shield but the wrong one got shipped. I'm impressed with Revzilla customer service in making it right. Anyway, I like the sun visor operation but will need to explore color options.
Overall, while the vents feel cheap the helmet is meeting my expectations and hopes. It is feature rich and there are lots of add-ons like extra cheek pads, other visors and colors, etc. and it is inexpensive on Revzilla. I just need to remember to use the flasher feature at night. :)

Hi Viz Gmax to supplement HiVis jacket
My success with my 3 year old "white- 54S" Gmax, which I use daily and is outfitted with the SENA 10 communicator, prompted me to purchase this identical model in Hi-Vis, to supplement my Hi-Vis jacket. Air flow in mid-90's keeps my head dry (same as the older white model), providing you are riding at 30+ MPH.
Others mentioned sizing to be a bit larger. I wear a 7-1/4 hat, and my original white flip-up 54S helmet was a medium, so I replaced with the same size. Fits a bit snug like it should, same as the older "white" model. Note: I also own a 3/4 GMax helmet in a large and it is a bit too loose to be considered "safe and secure"- I can rotate it on my head. Also, the full face flip-up 54S helmet, with numerous air vents, does a superior job of keeping my head cool and dry, even at 95 degree weather. In comparable hot weather, my head is saturated after riding with my white 3/4 helmet for only 20 minutes, which fits substantially looser!
If you want to be seen by other riders, this HiVis helmet does the job!

Great First impression
I honestly never had a high reguard for Gmax products but after weighing all the option this helmet found it way at the top of the heap so I thought I'd give it a try. I have to say that this helmet is much nicer than I expected. The thing is feature packed, light, comes in high vis and is super affordable. Really happy with the purchase!

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!

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..

Looking for a hi viz modular. Have long oval head. Tried Shoie but noisy and not hi viz, only yellow. any suggestions?
Tom555 on Sep 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I tried on the Shoei and it is certainly well made but it's also over $600.
I have used this GMAX for a few months now and love it. It's very visible, I watched a friend wear it while on my scooter.
The modular feature is great on hot days. Of course when traffic gets busy I close the helmet to get the full face safety benefit.
Sun visor also a great feature. Helmet can be a bit noisy but you can close several vents to get quieter ride but noise hasn't been a bother for me.
I ride at 4:30 AM so the flashing light in back adds some extra safety when it's dark.
So thoroughly pleased with Gmax so far.
Can you show pictures from different angles, or a 3D view? I want to see the profile of the vents and sun visor lever, so I can judge ease of use with gloves.
A shopper on Nov 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello, no need to send you photos. I have three types of gloves, vented armored ballistic for summer, short leather for cooler months, and longer insulated and armored leather for winter months. With all three, I have no problem actuating the vents or lowering or raising the visor. Even the LED rear flashing light is easy to turn on or off withe gloves on. You biggest challenge will be to remember where the vents are as this helmet has many of them. This has been my best purchase in helmets for quite a while.
The picture displayed for the GMAX 54S Hi-Vis looks like the helmet is only a regular yellow color, is this helmet actually Hi-Vis? I am looking for a really bright reflective yellow.
Shawn L on Mar 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hiviz and then some. The color is brilliant yellow green. My son gets all kinds of comments about losing their eyesight
Do the sizes seem to run true or small?
A shopper on Mar 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would say that they run true to size. I used a cloth tape and went by my true measurement size. It is always better to try it in person if possible. Every head shape is different. Two people may have the same measurement but any helmet will fit tight in spots on one and lose in those same spots on the other. As soon as you get it try in on for about 20 to 30 min. If it is to small your head will be tingling in those high pressure areas.
Can I wear eyeglasses and still use the sun visor?
A shopper on Dec 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I wear glasses and the sun visor goes right over them. I had the same concern before purchase and glad I made this choice. This is the best helmet I have bought!
What kind of chin strap system does the high-viz helmet have? Is it double d-ring or something else? Thanks!
A shopper on Oct 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The chin strap is a double D with a snap on the end of the strap that snaps onto itself close to the DD to eliminate the wind from flapping it around. This is the best helmet I have purchased!
