GMax Women's GM67 Butterfly Helmet
Great helmet for great price
Great Helmet overall. Only complaints: sun visor too small, needs to be about 1in longer and buckling difficult, needs snap on an extended tab. I ordered a S based on reviews and I was too big. I normally wear an XS and ordered a small based on other reviews. I had to return it for the XS, I found it true to size. The helmet is light, comfortable and looks good on :)

Love this helmet!
I ordered the GMax 67s red wine helmet in the medium size a month after purchasing a HJC FG Jet looking for something with more ventilation during the hot summer and a visor. After receiving the GMax I fell in love with the deep rich color and finish, the fit of the visor and the amount of vents. Heck, the vents are even screened to keep those bugs from getting in! I put the helmet on and fit was right on, not too tight and not too loose. I wore it the next day and the next and the next on my commute to work and back in with temps in the mid 80's and the ventilation is fantastic even behind a windshield. The visor shields the eyes and adds character to the helmet with its smooth clean lines and fit.

I live in Vegas and use my bike for regular transportation so heat is a major factor. I bought this helmet in white specifically so it would be cooler than the black full face Bell I've been using.
I'm very happy with the airflow. It's good air without being so much it dries out my eyes. There's plenty of air through the vents front and back. I like the clear face shield can be raised at lights for a quick drink of water. And I'm impressed that the shade is dark enough that I don't feel the need to wear sunglasses even in mid summer sun. It could be a bit darker, but in Las Vegas, I could wear welding glasses in summer!
All the vents and shades work easily, even with gloves on. It's a bit loud, but not overwhelming.
Probably the only thing that I personally have an issue with is just the shape is a little round for me, but I know my head shape is a bit longer than normal. It's not very uncomfortable but it does put a bit of pressure on my forehead. It's still fairly new so I'm hoping the cushions will break in a bit and it will fit better after more wear.
Overall it was a great purchase and I'm very happy with it. :)

Highly recommended, it saved my life.
Only 2days after I received the helmet I was involved in an accident. A lady in a car turned left in front of me . I had no warning. I hit the lady at about 30 Mph. I woke up in the street with somebody holding my head. I had abrasions all over my body. I had a borked femur and needed a hip replacement. I also needed stretches in my knee. The firemen told me my head went through the passenger door glass and I would be dead if I didn't have the helmet on. I will be buying a new helmet as soon as I get the insurance settlement. I can not give a higher recommendation oft the GMax helmet. It saved my life.

Great product for the money
I've always wanted a girlie type helmet without being to far out there, this is perfect, It's also lightweight and very comfortable, I absolutely love the sun shade, no more having to carry two pair of glasses on the road

My First Ride with GMax
Riding with the tinted visor in the down position and using the full clear shield was almost more than I could bear for the first 30 minutes; definitely not arrow dynamic, I could NOT hold my head still. My teeth were literally chattering b/c of the amount of wind this helmet was catching and whipping my head around with the Clear full faced portion down.....I finally pushed the clear portion of the visor in the up position and found some relief....We removed the clear portion after 30 minutes and just using the tinted visor the helmet was great. Also I noticed there is a place to hook up lights with batteries....I guess I didn't notice that option upon ordering, even though, had I expected it, it would not work as the battery compartment is not wired. I can't wait for the next ride however, I like to ride at dusk to dark and now I have a tinted flip down shield which I like, but, at night I don't really need a tinted shield and that was my purpose for purchasing this helmet.

Interior runs small and exterior runs large
I got this for my wife who is a small woman. Usually wears size small in other helmets. This one was way too tight on the inside. Additionally it was way too large on the outside. They must only make size XL of this and pad it up to size S as she was a bobble head with this on. Because of this excess exterior size it made a lot of noise, hard to stabilize head at highway speed, and overall was a returned item.
Styling of this was great - loved the look. Build quality and included parts were good too. Just don't buy unless you are going with the larger sizes.

great 2-up helmet for your gal
i don't know if i'd recommend this as a primary pilot helmet...but for your 2-up it's super nice. i fitted a sena smh10 comm unit into it with zero problems and even though it is open face there is not much wind noise at all. great price, fits true.
