Great helmet for daily use at a great price.
This helmet is very comfortable and the graphics on it really looks cool. In addition, for a helmet that's $150 it's a great deal and also includes a free dark tint face shield for summer riding.

Good helmet. Good price.
This helmet is amazing. It has features of most top of the line helmets at a little over entry level price. Great bang for the buck for sure.
Now, let's get started.
Airflow: The airflow through this helmet is great. I've owned ICON Airmada and Bell Star helmets and this is on par with them for airflow. The only downside to great airflow is wind noise. This helmet isn't as noisy as Bell models but it doesn't produce the whistling sound that is common with the ICON Airmada. I ride with plugs or headphones so it doesn't bother me much.
Comfort: This helmet is surprisingly lightweight. Either it's lightweight or I'm building some more muscle from lifting two kids around all day. The neck roll is very comfortable and I've yet to feel any hard points in the front, side and rear while riding. The chin curtain (it was a b!tch to take off) is flexible enough so that putting the helmet on and taking it off while the curtain is attached is fairly easy. Some helmets I've owned with a chin curtain made squeezing my head in a pain. Literally. Overall this helmet is very, very comfortable. The spoiler on the rear of the helmet isn't as advanced as the top end racing helmets, but it gets the job done when it comes to keeping your head still. The only thing that I find odd about this helmet is that I can almost touch the front of the helmet with my lips. If I make 'duckface' I can kiss the inside of the helmet.
Function: The quick release system for the visor isn't the easiest to use. Unlike ICON and Bell where it's just click click and pop and your shield is off or on, this one takes a bit more effort. It doesn't feel like a great quality release system. Almost feels like you'll break it by using it. The ratcheting system on the helmet is alright. I got spoiled by my Bell Star by being able to lock the visor in certain positions. This one feels a bit flimsy. Lifting the visor from the closed position feels funny. It feels like it's locked but isn't. In my opinion, I shouldn't need to use that much pressure to lift my visor. Also, the visors say fog free, but they do fog up. They fog up, but the fog disappears quickly. The vents adjust with ease even with gloves on though.
This is a great helmet for the value. Great graphics, airflow, and comfort. Great for daily use but grab something else if you're planning on doing some serious canyon carving or track days.

Armando P:I tried on a medium Shoei in the store and it was very tight. I ordered a medium in this Helmet and I thought it was sort of loose, but would work. A month later I put it on ebay and am still trying to sell it because I feel like it is way to loose on the highway. My head is more narrow though. Hope that helpsMay 6, 2014
