GMax GM78 Helmet - Solid
Broke before use
I liked the features of this helmet and it seamed pretty sturdy, but the sun visor mechanism broke before I got it out of the bag.

I have had this helmet for over a year now. Although I have never fallen or been in a crash (so I can't comment about how it holds up in that aspect), it feels pretty durable. The visor inside is great for sunny days without needing to carry an extra visor and switch them in and out.
There is also a light on the back that I hear you can sync to your breaks. I haven't bothered to do this, and never use it.

if you are thinking of getting this Helmet, you wont be diappointed
I was finally able to convince my wife she needed a full face helmet. She came to the Revzilla web site as we have purchased from them before. She found a helmet that she liked the style of and we followed the instructions for sizing and bought according to them. The helmet fits like it is suppose to, nice and snug and she is well pleased.

Well priced. Comfortable. Versatile.
As a new rider, with not much cash to put in to the most expensive gear, I've found this helmet to be just as promised and much more. Lots of vent control for varying climate. Easy to use drop down sun visor is smooth and convenient (one of my favorite features). The fit is a bit more snug than I would have liked, but granted has gotten better over time.
All in all, I've been very pleased with it.

The helmet is a great buy!
The helmet was a little tight at first but after a few wears it fits fantastic. I do how ever wish it had an option for a clear sun visor, the reason I say that is I also purchased the blue visor and I'm still waiting it will arrive tomorrow. I'm sure it will be dark for night rides so if that was the case a clear sun visor would be great, a reverse affect blue visor for day ride and clear sun visor with blue visor up for night rides....I hope that's clear.
Really though overall the helmet is great and I'm happy I purchased it.

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.

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.

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
