GMax Women's GM69 Crusader II Helmet
Great basic helmet
I bought this for my girlfriend so we can start riding 2up. The graphics/style of this helmet were much better than I anticipated. She says it's very comfortable, not too heavy. She complained a bit about the airflow and fogging when we were stopped/moving slowly, but it didn't seem terrible. My only real complaint would be the visor system. It came with a dark visor for free (Sweet!), but it was a bit#@ to switch out.

Very stylish and comforable
the look of this helmet get compliments for sure!
i like the look of the air vents and the pattern work, with the tinted visor it looks mean.
the fit is nice and tight, plenty of airflow which is great on longer rides.
only downside i could find is the noise. long trips the wind noise starts to get annoying but to and from work is fine, nice to hear a bit more of the exhaust anyway.
over all i think this helmet is awesome bang for the buck, looks sweet, comfy fit and although i haven't tried it out im sure it'll do its job in the protection department if i'm ever to come off... again...

I purchased this helmet for the value and "bang for the buck". The helmet is well ventilated, comfortable, and fits my head well. I measured as a size small and it fits well. The helmet is a little heavy and the wind noise can be on the loud side.

saved my head
Got this helmet a little while ago. great fit, loved the style, stayed very cool and ventilated while moving. It moved so much air I could actually feel my hair move from the vent breeze. only negatives were noise and the visor occasionally steamed up on the bottom while stationary.
However, that's not why I'm writing this review. I got hit by a car the other day and after sailing through the air, my head was first to touch the pavement. the helmet stayed solid and did not shift or move at all. it absorbed a ton of the impact. This helmet diffidently did it's job. It saved my head and helped allow me to walk away ok.

Very comfortable, stylish bang for your buck helmet.
This helmet comes in a wide variety of colors, I chose the matte black because it's simple and still has an aggressive look on this model.
The helmet fits amazing, I'm an xs and it's a nice snug fit all around with easy to use true vents on top and in front for good air flow even for the hotter days.
The style is a medium aggressive look with added rails on top for the vents and I always get compliments on it. The helmets shell is a more on the narrow side which is great for me at 5'7" - 135lbs it doesn't look like a bobble head. Shell size looks proportionate with or without a jacket.
The price is amazing for the comfort and style you are getting, definitely a must buy. Perfect for everyday riding.

Great, inexpensive helmet for Texas heat.
I exchanged a bell arrow helmet for this, which was too round for my head, and put a pressure point on my forehead and the back of my head. This helmet was a major improvement, feeling comfortable all around.
The helmet has really good airflow, I would say it is one of the best ventilating helmets around. It is really nice to see a helmet with a chin curtain at this price point as well, it helps cut the noise levels down dramatically. I also really like the fact that it comes with a smoked visor for free, which is pretty good for bright days, though it isn't a very dark tint, so it isn't too helpful when riding into the sun.
My only complaint about the helmet is with the sliders to open and close the top vents. They are very hard to move from position to position, but feel very loose at the same time, having lots of play side to side. They just feel cheap, but I hope they last.

An excellent helmet!!
This was my first full/face helmet purchase, after an extended amount of research, this one beat the rest. Great helmet for the price. My hat size is a comfortable 7 5/8. I ended up ordering an XL since other reviews said it fit small, very pleased with the size. Although it is a little bulky, it looks awesome!! Great for summer time riding. Incredible air flow. Wearing sunglasses with the helmet can be a little tight but i managed to get my FatHeadz glasses on. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another Gmax in the future.
