Superb helmet for the money + great features If you're looking for a nice, comfortable helmet with plenty of features - and great 'bang for the buck' - the GMax GM78 is an excellent option. The design is very aerodynamic and yields minimal drag. All the open/close portal vents help you keep a cool head on hot days with great adjustable airflow. All of this with a built in three mode rear visibility light and internal sun visor sealed the deal for me. I think, possibly due to the vents / airflow, the noise level can get a little higher than some helmets but it's not bad...and it works well with Bluetooth. I have only positive things to say about this helmet... September 5, 2014
Great bang for your buck Just got the helmet today and when I first opened the helmet bag all I could say was "wow". I was expecting some cheap helmet for the price of the GMAX GM78s, but is a very nice helmet. I couldn't decide between the matte black, white, or titanium but after seeing RevZilla's review on the titanium colored GM78s I was hooked. I do think the visor engagement tab feels a little cheap, but for sub-$110 it'll do just fine. I used the sizing chart and the helmet fit perfectly. Once it breaks in it will be even more comfortable. Not to mention that there was FREE SHIPPING and RevZilla PAYS the tax!! Plus RevZilla's legendary rated customer service I feel confident if I have any problems they will sort it out. Next thing I will be purchasing is the GMAX brake light wireless kit for the helmet. Did I mention I ordered the helmet Sunday evening and it came Wednesday Afternoon? Talk about fast shipping. I highly recommend this helmet. September 16, 2014
This helmet is worth the investment, but xoukd use some retweaking. This helmet is a great starter helmet. The drop down visor and multiple air paths enable comfort and plenty of air while riding. The downfall to those vents are an over abundance of noise. Also, the helmet runs fairly large. I typically wear a large and it felt significantly bigger. Some of the features are easily broken (sun visor clip broke second week in). Other than that, I still use this helmet for cruising and on nice summer days. September 15, 2014
Excellent entry level helmet! I still use and love this helmet. Fits great, it felt almost constricting at first and i considered returning it for a bigger size, but i gave it some time and i once it was completely broken in, I found it to be a perfect fit! I used the sizing chart and video on revzilla, so good job guys! I have the matte black one and I get a lot of compliments on how cool it looks, plus everyone like the flashing LED in the back as an added safety feature. A lot of people tell me it feels heavy for a helmet, but I have no issues with the weight. Although I do have a muscular build all around, including my traps, so that may be why it isn't an issue. airflow is great, its a tad loud, but great. I sweat pretty easily, so i only have a heat issue when i'm waiting at a light for too long, though, that can be said about almost every helmet out there. It does feel kind of cheap when compared to a $300 helmet, but not so cheap that it doesn't feel safe. great helmet for entry level riders for a great price! i would recommend this to a beginner and suggest upgrading when they get a faster bike!

like the quick release don't know why every helmet doesn't have a quick release. September 8, 2014
Stellar airflow and very intuitive design and features make this helmet a winner The GMax GM78 helmet is the best, most comfortable helmet I've owned to date. The exterior design is very aerodynamic and provides a minimal amount of drag when changing your POV, which is crucial. The airflow is absolutely top-notch, and completely adjustable via the numerous portals located in strategic positions all over the helmet, allowing you to control the flow as much or as little as you would like. The helmet also has a built-in light on the rear with three lighting modes: Solid, slow-flashing, and fast-flashing, which greatly add to your visibility when on the road in the early morning, at dusk, or well after dark. Due to the increased airflow, the noise level can get a little higher than helmets without better airflow, but that is to be expected. All in all, nothing negative to say about this helmet, whatsoever. September 2, 2014
I love it This is my first helmet and I love it. I have had off road helmets in the past but this is my first street helmet and it is perfect would recommend 10 out of 10 times September 1, 2014
This helmet has everything you need, PERIOD Other than this helmet lacking in a SNELL rating, you couldn't tell whether or not your wearing the most expensive helmets on the market today. By far the most bang for the buck and I own Shoei and Arai helmets. They just sit and collect dust since I tried the GMAX. This is the second helmet I've purchased from this company and will be from now on. Everything you want and a lot less of what you don't. Great helmet. July 14, 2014
