GMax Women's GM67 Butterfly Helmet
Bought this helmet for my wife. She has a long oval head shape (think Arai). She wears this helmet when we ride the Aprilia Sport City 250 scooters. I works well and she likes the drop down sun shield. However, it is more of a round/neutral shape internally and gives her a hot spot on her forehead after about an hour. Once this happens, we have to stop every 1/2 hour or so to give her head a break. She now wears her full face helmet on long rides as it is more comfortable. I am currently shopping for a new open face helmet for her.

Great cheap helmet
I bought two of these helmets, one for my mother and another for my sister, both used to wear a little brain bucket which in reality offers no protection in the event of a crash and no wind protection either.
They did not like a full face helmet so this looked like the next best thing, fit its a little small, the cheek pads are very big hopefully in time they become a little softer and mold to their faces.
This comes with a clear Visor that its optional, and a small lip on the top.
Also there is a version of this helmet that has a red LED on the back this does not have the LED but there is room to put one in there so I will probably install one later on.

Very happy with this purchase
Comfort and style are more than I expected for such a great price.

Very comfortable helmet
I concur with previous reviews regarding the fit. I needed to go one size larger than the chart showed for my measurement. I love the fit and the comfort of the helmet. There is little if any noise, visibility is great. I love the ease of the sunglass visor, the face shield is crystal clear. Also, this company is very nice to deal with as it took me a couple of times to find the right helmet.

Good Passenger Helmet
Purchased for my lovely lady friend so that she could ride with me. Claimed to be comfortable, looks good, the visor is nice.

Small and tight
This helmet ran small for my wife. The head measurement was at the top end of an XS. We ordered a small. It was very tight in the face. We ordered 20mm cheek pads to try that. The installed ones were 30mm in the small. With the smaller pads she noted that the crown felt like it was riding high. We returned the helmet for a medium. The medium came with 20mm pads. It still felt too snug, so we returned the original 20mm replacement pads for 10mm ones. Wish the helmet came with the pads as a separate item, so that you could return them rather than just throw them out. Or store them someplace safe, which is the same thing in our house.
The inner sun visor could come down a little farther. But she likes the final helmet.

Love this helmet - heaps of venting that can be opened and truly comfortably, quality product.

Great for its money, but size up.
My mother bought this helmet for me once I finally decided what size to get. Before I begin I will state that my face is pretty close to being round, and I have wide temples compared to most people with my head size, and my head is not very rounded in the back either. This helmet seems to be shaped for women whose faces are either true oval or slightly more oblong. It fits very well in the back but I had to size up from the size chart. The size chart is somewhat inaccurate anyway, as my helmet should have been too big in the back with the size I ordered. It was not. It also barely fit at my temples. When ordering, size up one size, maybe two if you have wide temples.
My main concern with this helmet is that the description makes it seem like it comes equipped with the battery for the LED light in the back. It does not. There is nothing in the documentation about what kind of battery is needed either, and when you open the compartment it is obvious that it is not for your standard battery. I assume you must buy the battery separately. This is why I only give it a 4/5 for features.
I love the full face plate, again, your mileage might vary, but on me it dips an inch or two below my chin. Without a chin guard though the helmet is very breathable while still having some extra protection from the long face shield. I love the wide range of vision it gives me, as I already have some diminished peripheral vision and don't need more.
I am writing this on a average day for February, riding for about half an hour in 60 degree F weather, so I had all the vents closed. I have to assume that the vents work well as I won't be finding out until probably May.
Overall this helmet is great for its money, if you want to use the LED though you will have to buy the battery separately. It sizes a little small, but it's really a work of art. Overall, I'm glad I chose this as my first helmet!
