A little heavy but other than that it's perfect Love the LED on that back that can connect to brakes with a pretty cheap accessory April 13, 2015
Good helmet for the price. It's a solid buy for new riders, lots of vents (even though they really don't do much) and the drop down visor had enough room for my glasses to fit underneath. The slide for the drop down feels very very very flimsy, as though the plastic is barely attached. Fits snug for me, but it does have a pretty round look to it. First helmet? Good choice. Helmet guru? You already know better. May 18, 2015
First Full face I've usually wear 3/4 and half helmets but wanted a full face for when I knew I would be hitting the freeways. At first i wanted a Modular but figured I might as well go full face as it would probably be more durable. I liked the features of this GM78 and the price was unbeatable. I actually measure at a Med according to the size chart but as recommended ordered a size higher (Large) since I wear large with all other helmets. I think if i went with a medium it may have been too small. It fits good around the head but the cheek pads are TIGHT. I'm hoping it'll break in so i don't have to buy a smaller sized cheek pad. I hooked up my bluetooth to it and it fit great especially with the speaker pockets. Ventilation is pretty good although the shield will fog up even with vents open when stopped in cold weather but quickly goes away when you start moving. It looks good, i got the white so it looks kinda like a Storm trooper with the black vents which to me is kinda cool. I haven't used the light yet since I don't usually ride at night but will if I ever do. Nice little feature. If I had to do it over again i'd pick the same helmet. May 18, 2015
Great affordable helmet This is my first helmet I have bought and have not had any troubles with it. I decided to get the brake light kit that was pretty simple to install. Ordering online could not have been easier, everything arrived quickly and in perfect condition. I feel like the visor can fog pretty easily when you're not moving but stays nice and clear while riding and if I have to crack the visor at a stop it clears up instantly. I used to have problems with my paintball goggles fogging up on me when I used to play so I think it might be mostly me, not really the helmet. Biggest annoyance when I opened it was the sticker on drop-down sun visor. The outside shield had a nice plastic cling with operational instructions on it that pealed off nicely, but the small shiny sticker on the inside sun-visor was a pain to take off and left a nasty gluey smudge. It really wasn't a big deal to clean it off, I just hate when stickers do that to a nice clean surface :P The sizing chart was spot on for me. I measured 23 1/4in and was unsure if I should go a size up, but Medium was perfect. Overall I am very satisfied with the helmet but I hope I never have to find out exactly how well it performs in an accident :P May 4, 2015
Blown away by this helmet. I was set on ordering the Bell with the transitions lens, but all of the reviews about wind noise through the comms cover changed my mind. So I decided that I would look for a helmet with a drop down shade. After reading several reviews and watching all of the videos I decided on this helmet in white. I couldn't pass on the functional brake light add-on for it as well. (Comes stock with an on/off/flashing rear LED option) I have a round head, and it fits quite well. I was worried that it would push too much on my cheeks but the fit is just right. The vents are easy to operate, and I like that the shade height can be adjusted to several different heights. As an added FYI, my buddy just bought a Scorpion EXO-500 (which was the other helmet I was considering) in the same size and it fit tighter than this helmet and squeezed on my cheeks much more. For the price, I have nothing to complain about with this helmet and would gladly buy it again. May 3, 2015
was using a kbc but dropped it . this one is way lighter. Great amount of airflow nice snug fit. Great field of view. So far so good. Couldn't ask for a better helmet for the price . Ride 2008 suzuki bandit 1250s and 2007 suzuki Boulevard c90. April 27, 2015
awesome helmet awesome price Cant say enough good things about this helmet. It looks awesome, very comfortable, a ton of airflow (too much with all vents open) and the pull down sun visor is an awesome feature as well as the led light bar on the back. This helmet is pretty lightweight, doesn't weigh your head down and put strain on your neck. 10/10 would purchase again given the chance April 24, 2015
First helmet The gmax gm78 looks great, feels good, has lots of vents. The dark visor is really convenient. So far no complaints! April 24, 2015

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Curtis R: Looked like a good affordable helmet with the color graphics I wanted. Nov 28, 2014
ERIK K: The biggest reasons that I chose this helmet were the internal sun visor and the light on the back. Of all the full face helmets with internal sun visors, this one was the darkest and came down the lowest. As a new rider I like the added visibility of the LED on the rear of the helmet, and the ability to pair it to the brakes with the separate wireless module. It may be the least expensive helmet that I've looked at, but it also met the criteria better than the more expensive helmets. Nov 27, 2014
GONZALO L: Bang for the Buck. Sun visor is a nice feature. Oct 27, 2014
Gilbert M: I like the additional benefit of the built in LEDs. I am also gonna order the Brake Light add on as well since this isn't a High Viz or Brightly colored helmet. Aug 31, 2014
Oswald B: Best bang for the buck. I am a new rider on a 2014 Ninja 300 abs, and I wanted something that was somewhat inexpensive yet offered many features. Jul 2, 2014
Dilsher S: My very first helmet as a beginner rider. Has a rear LED light as an extra safety feature, and this red/black/white color scheme matches the bike. Jul 1, 2014
Andrew F: Good reviews and great features. I love the slide down sun visor. Jun 2, 2014
Kelly V: Decent reviews of Gmax helmets on Webikeworld and wanted something affordable for my first street helmet in 18 years. Plus, I liked the idea of the light on the back. Nov 29, 2013
