GMax Women's GM67 Butterfly Helmet
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.

Good buy for price
Good quality, well built, lots of features, air flow, visors, different types, clear and shaded supplied. A little small, I bought a size bigger and still very snug. But does its purpose will protect the head well.

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 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.
