GMax GM78 Helmet - Solid 4.4 5 77 77
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
awesome helmet great price It only took MW one ride to realize that I loved this helmet. It feels to run a little small. Not too much though. It is very comfortable. It has almost too much airflow, but from other reviews I expected that. The flip down visor is very nice except for the UV protection sticker they put directly on the visor. It doesn't come off clean and leaves the sticker residue. The noise level is amazingly quiet compared to my old gmax. It is a really good looking helmet, and the light in the back makes it look even more awesome. April 22, 2015

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Siddhartha R: The choice was based on reviews and features of the helmet. Reasonable price, and the built-in features like the LED light, additional vents, and the visor. May 3, 2015
Auguste G: Inexpensive but excellent value for its price. Hoping it will be a good starter helmet. Apr 28, 2015
Bryan S: I need a passenger helmet, I had bought this as my first helmet but didnt like the quality of the materials much but hey, it's at a great price though. When it came time to get the passenger helmet I went straight to this, mainly for all the ventilations it has, the drop down tinted visor and the LED flashing light on the back. The light is my favorite feature as it help people see us when riding. Apr 28, 2015
Aaron J: I chose this helmet one for the price and one for the amount of vents. Im usually a really hot headed person and the amount of cooling options of this helmet seems to have fit my needs. Apr 27, 2015
Robert M: Drop down sunshade, and LED kit is just trick. Lots of great reviews as well makes it a great bang for the buck. I was going to go with the Bell DLX because of the shield, but too many complaints about wind noise through the side cover and no chin curtain. Apr 25, 2015
Tyler B: It has a wicked cool light on the back. Apr 17, 2015
Carlos C: The lights on the back, the nice look, the sun visor...Nice Apr 10, 2015
Brandon B: Good reviews. Supposedly good airflow. Flip down visor is clutch. Apr 9, 2015
Odonis S: Love anything black especially matte black Mar 6, 2015
Jose C: Mainly for cause of the affordability of it. Its a very nice sleek cool looking helmet I was looking for and with the LED lights in the back just made it the deal breaker over most helmets on the site besides pricing. I'm not a big fan of where the drop down visor mechanism is placed, its placed pretty poorly for the looks of the helmet and should have been placed unseen but easily accessible for the rider to find. but over all its a great helmet. Feb 3, 2015
Jeremy L: Very Affordable option, best looking white helmet for the price. Drop down sun visor and you guys sell replacement visors and tinted ones. Feb 2, 2015
Jose R: Price Dec 30, 2014
Jesse L: Skeptical really. reviews are mixed. Anthonys reviews are sometimes very nonjudgmental making it tough to gauge the quality of this helmet. Dec 29, 2014
M C: Because of your great review, of course! Dec 24, 2014
Miguel D: I was looking for style, bang for the buck, protection, and features. I really feel that this is an amazing intro helmet. everyone else really likes it ;) Dec 2, 2014
Roy M: Price, style, features and good reviews Nov 26, 2014
Daniel M: love the the blinking lights in the back, will be good for night riding, and has plenty of intake and has the inside sun visor Nov 12, 2014
Joseph P: it has good features for a good price Oct 13, 2014
Michael K: Most bang for your buck! The sun visor was important in my purchase desicion and i liked the LED light in the back of the helmet to increase visability. Oct 9, 2014
Daniel F: Available in a 3X, plus I liked the features offered. Such as... the internal sun shield. It had other good reviews, so decided to give it a try, plus the price was right... Oct 6, 2014
james B: Because it was monetarily economical and the helmet hat an interior secondary sun visor; as well as an anti fog visor. The helmet had a visually appealing look; sleek yet highly functional. Oct 5, 2014
James L P: I'm a novice and am relying on all the great reviews. Oct 2, 2014
Krystopher R: Great price for the amount of features. One of the only helmets on the market with LED light on the back that can also be wirelessly connected to your bike's brake light. All three available colors go with anything. The black looks aggressive, the white looks clean, and the titanium is the perfect medium. Because of RevZilla's legendary customer service, free shipping on orders over $39.99, and not having to add tax to those pricey orders, I will definitely be shopping at RevZilla again. Sep 14, 2014
G U: Great first helmet for my wife she loves the helmet and the light feature for added safety in the back of the helmet Sep 11, 2014
James W: Quality of helmet for the money. Inside sun visor and better cooling than most other helmets Aug 26, 2014
Travis E: Met my requirements of clean solid color, built in shades, and had tech that i thought is worth trying...(hi viz 3rd led light that can be synced with brake lights) Aug 13, 2014
Peggy V: Flip down internal sun visor with clear shield for day and night riding, lots of adjustable venting for summer riding. white for visibility. I ride an 80 CB750 in the upright, relaxed position. also the red light in the rear of the helmet. and the comfort, i tried one on in a store and it was a great fit. May 6, 2014
tim b: Wanted something that looked different Apr 3, 2014
William S: I wanted a helmet for my girlfriend to wear while riding with me. Safety, comfort and value were priorities. Feb 22, 2014
truong n: Great bang for your buck helmet. Exceptional ventilation. I can definitely say it runs 1 size bigger for me but it does fit nice. The helmet itself just makes my head look big. Dec 2, 2013
James C: Most bang for the buck, right in my price range, Sun visor and light on back of helmet Oct 10, 2013

David G asked: My head measures 22 & a 1/4" should I go a size up from small to a medium? Also I really like the Gmax gm54s model but there seems to be a lot of negative stigmatism surrounding modular helmets are they safe? I plan on purchasing this tomorrow morning. Nov 18, 2014

Jim H: I found the size to be pretty accurate compared to the size chart. The GMax line is really a good secure helmet.

I also would not be too terribly concerned about modular helmets. I also have a Schuberth C3 Pro and love it, but it's quite different than just about every other modular on the market.

Kent W: I was also on a size break between XS and S - but have a pretty round head and went with the S (21.75" diameter). Fits me great and is comfortable, but not loose.

Can't speculate as to modular, i'm sure there are pages on motorcycling forums that debate that very issue.

A shopper asked: Does this come with a smoke shield Apr 27, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: This helmet does not come with a smoke faceshield. It includes a drop-down sunvisor, which eliminates the need to change faceshields. May 2, 2013
Reply to RevZilla Good answer? Yes (2) No (0)
jairjair26: No, it comes with a clear pinlock insert only. The smoke insert is available for around $35, when ordering make sure you buy the SAI max vision version. On another note, the dark smoke is not very dark so if you are thinking about the light smoke you may want to order the dark instead. Apr 27, 2013

A shopper asked: I've been around motorcycles for about two years now and just picked up my brand new r6. Do any of you think that this helmet would be a good upgrade? Also, I'm torn between getting a Medium or a Large. I normally wear a 7 3/8 hat size but sometimes wear a 7 1/2 as well. Is the sizing pretty accurate to the size chart?? Jan 7, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Kent W: For me the sizing is pretty accurate. I used the inch measurement from GMAX and it fits well. I do have a fairly wide head (head is more round shape than rectangular), which is why i went with this helmet. It is comfortable even on long rides. Jan 12, 2015

Jason S asked: Aside from not being modular, how does this helmet differ (if at all) from the Gmax GM54S? I like the GM54S but I am not a huge fan of where the release for the chin bar is and don't necessarily need a modular helmet. Aug 6, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Kent W: Haven't tried the GM54s, but this helmet is comfortable and would probably be lighter than the modular since it has a less complex design. Aug 13, 2014
