GMax GM78 Helmet - Solid 4.3 5 57 57
Fell apart over time My last 4 helmets have been GMax helmets- They have always been good quality for a good price, though nothing fancy or fashionable. I considered myself loyal to the brand, and I was excited to find a model with all the features I wanted, especially the tinted internal sliding visor. However, in the three months I have owned it, its literally fallen to pieces. The chin webbing fell out almost out of the box. The LED shorted after my first ride in the rain. The slider for the tinted visor popped off in my hand when I used it on the road. This is all very strange, since this model seemed so much more advanced than previous ones. My next helmet won't be a GMax, suffice it to say. October 20, 2014
New (returning) rider Used it all weekend while taking an msf course (I'm a returning rider after 25 yrs). Felt good and visibility was very good. Multi-position shield came in real handy with much heat one day and cold misty rain all next day. Slide down visor is super cool and so glad I got it as I watched others (students) deal with glasses and helmet. Measurement: I was slightly above (by 1/8 inch) medium, into the large zone. Got a large and it fits great; nice and snug but tight on my cheeks (just some break-in needed), no play. Great value and the Titanium is very cool looking. October 15, 2014
Great 'Bang for your Buck' Recently got to test the helmet out and it passed with flying colors. Great value, love the features... flip down sun shield, rear helmet light, plenty of air flow vents. Size is true to form. Feel is a little stiff, rough... but hopeful that this will improve with wear. So far, so good... I really like it & at the price, it's a great deal. October 14, 2014
Good Helmet Not much of a rider yet but have used this a couple times on some test rides. The helmet is pretty stout so it's a little heavier but you will get used to that. Fantastic airflow through the front and out the back. Can be pretty warm too when all the vents are closed up. Can't get over how nice having the inner visor is. So much easier than slipping glasses in each time. Vision is good and wide in it with virtually no distortions. For roughly $100, you can't go wrong. October 6, 2014
Wow.. great product at a great price. Upon opening my delivery, that got here in two days!, the first thing I noticed was the sleek look of Ms. Matte Black. It just looks so good. The fit is true to size. I measured large, bought large, fits comfortably and will probably loosen around the cheeks a bit over time. The visor isn't as hard to remove as I thought it would, be based on the review. All in all, it's a great helmet at a great price. I would recommend it to anyone. Thanks Revzilla. I'll definitely be back to shop for more! October 3, 2014
Great value! I've put about 400 miles on my bike since I got this helmet. I really like this helmet and it is an excellent value. I'm not exactly sure how someone is supposed to comment on the protection level unless it has saved their noggin and so far for me that hasn't been an issue (knock, knock, knock). This helmet looks great and has a bunch of do-dads. I really like the sun visor. If I was asked to provide any negative feedback, it would be that it is kinda loud. If I have the visor up with the shades down, there is a very loud whistle. If I shut the visor, it gets hot, but I'm in Texas, so it is asking a lot to not be hot. So far, I like this helmet.

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

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
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

MannyC: No the main visor is clear. But the flip down is tinted May 13, 2013

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
