Good Helmet for the Cash
I was buying a whole new set of gear, so I couldn't afford to lay down $400+ for a helmet, but I still wanted something that would save my dome in a crash.<br><br>For cooling, it's great. as others have said, it can fog up a little at stoplights, but I tend to open the visor at that point anyway. Also, it clears in seconds once you start moving.<br><br>The airflow inside is nice, it doesn't blast you in the face drying out your eyes and nose like some do.<br><br>Fit is good, could use a tad more flex when putting it on and off, but it may loosen up a bit with time in that respect.<br><br>Noise level is good, I can hear cars, sirens, etc, but it's not deafening like my 1/2 helmet is.<br><br>It does have a little weight to it, it's not unbearable, but like in shoes, a few ounces mean a lot.<br><br>Overall, I'm pleased with it.

Wanted the added brake light, but now I never use it!
I bought this for three reasons, the rear light safety feature, the built in tinted lens, and the extreme value for a helmet that has those things and more. After 3 months of owning this and riding almost everyday, I have only accidentally used the rear light when my kid turned it on without me knowing (I don't own the wireless module - yet). My favorite feature is the built in tint lens. I also have the "bubble" that others complain about but its a small warp that comes from the mechanism that moves the lens up and down and by now, I have to look for it to notice it. Pros: comfortable, amazing vents, pockets for Bluetooth speakers (I made my own for the cost of a Jackson!), quiet, well made. Cons: not a lightweight, does fog, larger than normal shape.

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)<br><br>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.<br><br>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.<br><br>For the price, I have nothing to complain about with this helmet and would gladly buy it again.

Good for what it's worth
I intentionally bought this helmet as a passenger helmet, but ended up using it as my primary helmet.<br>Wind noise is slightly loud, but that can be tuned out with some speakers.<br>This helmet is heavy! I felt like a bobble head my first time wearing it.<br>The padding and overall fit of the helmet is quite comfortable.<br>Air flow is great within the helmet. Havn't had one problem with feeling like my head was cooking.<br>My main complaint is the fact that the drop-down visor is not optically correct. There is a very noticeable "wave" in the center that warps my vision.<br><br>Overall, I think this would be a great helmet for beginners, considering all the features included.

Great!!!
Saw this helmet and was drawn to it originally by the price, but I got much more than expected! Definitely worth the respectable price tag! First off the helmet looks great! The first thing I noticed upon putting it on, It fits almost perfectly! As far as comfort goes, it fits wonderfully but is slightly heavy. Nothing to concern ones self over but just a minor discomfort on long trips. So far I have had no concerns with durability and would trust this thing to hold its own in the unfortunate case of a crash. Decent air flow, I still find myself lifting my visor very often at stops but that may just be due to the Florida heat. Other than that the led on the back gives me a little more ease of mind during night riding and the slide down sun visor is an AWESOME feature. Comes in handy a lot. I am overall very very impressed with this helmet. I would highly recommend it.

Worth the price!
More features than most helmets specially for that price. Since everyone has their preference and style plus, this is my opinion. I personaly like it a lot. I do think its a bit big for me. The color and style is pretty attractive caught my eye almost instantly. It feels good and quite comfy. I dont have a long neck and where the LED is located is a bit extended unlike most helmets .. So with me being short and with a short neck.. It looks like I have head and shoulders lol. But overall good helmet wouldnt and wont exchange it. I recommend, defitnately.

not so good quality, but great in style/price
Some of the components that were added onto the helmet are fastened in a cheap way as in the feel loose. Other than that the helmet has proven to be safe with the light and it looks great.

Just two complaints.
Good bang for the buck if you ask me.<br>I like the light on the back as well as the vents.<br>It has the same noise level as my previous CJ-16 helmet from HJC.<br><br>My main complaints are about the visor vent which is loose and always falls to the open position instead of locking in the off/on position.<br><br>Second the 'chin gaurd'(?) doesn't completely block all the air that would otherwise rush into the helmet. I often find myself with a constant rush of air up inside the helmet with lots of particulates that get in my eyes...<br><br>Final comments are the vertical field of view is much smaller than my M size HJC helmet. This Gmax is an S for reference. Also the sun visor is badass and convenient except I find myself without sunglasses when I'm off the bike.

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.

kirk h on Nov 25, 2015
Good experience with GMax brand in the past: very decently-priced, with excellent features. This helmet is leaps-and-bounds better than the old GMax model (which i LIKED a lot, even though it seemed somewhat unrefined in some respects). I was very surprised at how upscale this model now feels compared to the previous one. VERY happy with this purchase (so's my wife--we each have one).
Kenneth M on Nov 5, 2015
I like the style and the reviews. I like the dual visors, that was really the big seller. Price is decent too.
Michael C on Jul 11, 2015

Donald B on Jun 26, 2015
for the sun visor and led light
Scott B on May 29, 2015
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.
Siddhartha R on May 3, 2015
Inexpensive but excellent value for its price. Hoping it will be a good starter helmet.
Auguste G on Apr 28, 2015
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.
Bryan S on Apr 28, 2015
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.
Aaron J on Apr 27, 2015
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.
Robert M on Apr 25, 2015
It has a wicked cool light on the back.
Tyler B on Apr 17, 2015
The lights on the back, the nice look, the sun visor...Nice
Soldierrrr on Apr 10, 2015
Good reviews. Supposedly good airflow. Flip down visor is clutch.
Brandon B on Apr 9, 2015
Love anything black especially matte black
Odonis S on Mar 6, 2015
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.
Jose C on Feb 3, 2015
Very Affordable option, best looking white helmet for the price. Drop down sun visor and you guys sell replacement visors and tinted ones.

Jose R on Dec 30, 2014
Skeptical really. reviews are mixed. Anthonys reviews are sometimes very nonjudgmental making it tough to gauge the quality of this helmet.

Joseph P on Oct 13, 2014
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.
Michael K on Oct 9, 2014
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...
Daniel F on Oct 6, 2014
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.
james B on Oct 5, 2014
I'm a novice and am relying on all the great reviews.
James L P on Oct 2, 2014
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.
Krystopher R on Sep 14, 2014
Great first helmet for my wife she loves the helmet and the light feature for added safety in the back of the helmet

Quality of helmet for the money. Inside sun visor and better cooling than most other helmets
James W on Aug 26, 2014
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)
Guest on Aug 13, 2014
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.

Does the helmet have speaker cut outs for a bluetooth system? is there a place to put speakers?
A shopper on Mar 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: yes
Any experience with water getting into the helmet since there is an opening on the top (for the internal visor lever)?
A shopper on Mar 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I try to avoid riding in the rain, but there have been a few instances where I didn't have a choice. I have had no problems with a damp helmet lining or hair after a wet ride.
Can the light on the back be turned off completely?
Luis S on Dec 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it can. Indeed there are 3 different settings: steady, slow flashing, and fast flashing. Of course, a 4th one is off.
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.
David G on Nov 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Does this come with a smoke shield
A shopper on Apr 27, 2013
BEST ANSWER: This helmet does not come with a smoke faceshield. It includes a drop-down sunvisor, which eliminates the need to change faceshields.
Is the internal visor adjustable, or is it just 2 settings down/up?
Nathan v on Feb 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It has more than 2 settings. The slide has multiple clicks to set to... I just can't remember how many off hand. Love this helmet.
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??
A shopper on Jan 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I used the sizing chart and it was accurate for me. Plus Revzilla does one free return if you need to size up or down.
What is the noise level like when you're going over 60mph? Will you be able to hear clearly with a bluetooth sena thing?
A C on Mar 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure how to answer as I've only had 2 helmets and both produce about the same level of wind noise. However, in my gmax gm78, I could easily hear my sena smh10 over the wind noise even travelling over 80 mph. The sena smh10's volume can be adjusted to levels that are ear piercingly loud, I wouldnt worry about not being able to hear the Sena.
Any idea what this helmet weighs?
Carmine C on May 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Weighed the helmet on my postal box scale and it weighs just under 4 lbs at 3.8
Hope this helps.
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.
Jason S on Aug 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
