Kabuto Aeroblade 3 Tricolor Helmet
This is one amazing helmet
First in foremost the helmet looks more amazing in person online pics didnt do this helmet justice. Note fitment is 1 size smaller then my normal size had to send back a large for a medium now it fits perfect. Also fits my Sena 10s with ease my only complaint but not bad at all is noise level with all vents closed its alil louder then the hjc I'm used to wearing but overall it's a much better helmet then my first CL17 and I love my hjc. Does flow plenty of air with vents open and able to use with ease with a gloved hand . Helmet is light and comfy and head checks at high speeds are made easily when wearing my kabuto.

Great helmet, sizing might be a bit weird
Excellent design and very light helmet. Very very well made.
I usually wear a Large but the sizing could be a bit weird. The cheek area is a bit loose, while size running a bit small (Large at 58-59cm). You really need to try it before buying it, as this fits very differently from your usual Japanese Shoei and Arai.
There is some pressure after 30 mins of riding. With my head being a round oval, this helmet actually fits more to the Intermediate Oval to slightly Narrow head shape.
Revzilla staff if you see this review please update the head shape of this helm to Intermediate oval.

The helmet is very well made and extremely light weight. Good air flow and compares favorably to premium brand helmets I own and I find that my neck and shoulders feel relaxed after riding. Give it a try, you'll be surprised.

Kabuto Aeroblade III =Bang for the buck...
Kabuto (OGK) helmets are one of the best kept secrets in the US motorcycling realm. Great quality and finish, fit true to size, and priced well below other comparable Japanese offerings. Meets Snell standard and flows a ton of air. What's not to like?

Excellent helmet for the features and price!
I had a hard time deciding on a helmet but when I found the Kabuto Aeroblade III, I knew it would be it.
Comfort for the helmet was great. The padding is soft and breaks in nicely. It took about 5-8 rides to get the cheek pads worn in. At first I thought I may need a Large but I let the pads wear in and it was perfect.
The pinlock system: Absolutely great. Took a minute to get it seating properly on the visor but once I did, it worked exactly like it should. It is a little colder here in Nebraska and fogging is an issue for sure without cracking the visor. The pinlock insert, which is INCLUDED! made the difference. I almost accidentally threw the insert away. Luckily I didn't.
Noise: The helmet isn't too noisy. I put the chin skirt in and it lowered it slightly. This is also me riding in a place where the winds are typically 10-20 MPH on top of me sitting on a supersport. It isn't deafening and very tolerable. Wearing ear plugs eliminated every sound I heard. Mostly whistles from the top vents.
The styling of the helmet is very nice, all vents are easily manipulated with gloves, and the helmet did not feel heavy at all. Being SNELL rated and having the pinlock insert included, the 250ish dollar price point makes the helmet a definite good buy. The Revzilla video review also enforced all of my points about this helmet. I recommend watching the video as it is what helped me decide what to get. I recommend this helmet highly!

Good overall helmet
I bought this as my secondary helmet but compared to other helmets it's light and if you got the right size a nice fit doesn't hurt the head like some others and if you're like me aka baller on a budget it's not a bad price

Excellent value - high-end helmet for middle-of-the-road price
I have only recently gotten the helmet and have only used it for a few short rides at moderate (60 mph or less) speeds so I can only offer initial impressions. That said, I am very pleased with the helmet. I have owned helmets from other well-known premium brands, and this helmet is competitive in terms of features and finish. It is quiet and extremely light, and offers good ventilation at at 40 mph and above, although below that I needed to open the face shield. (Good ventilation is especially important to me due to the climate where I live.) It was comfortable right away despite some pressure on my forehead but I expect that to improve as I wear it more. I was pleased that a Pinlock anti-fog shield came with the helmet.
My only quibbles concern the lack of a face shield detent for a "just-a-crack" barely open position, and the ridges and other sculpturing are a bit garish for my tastes. On the other hand, Kubota claims that those are functional and contribute to the helmet's aerodynamic properties, e.g., low noise levels, lack of buffeting or lift at speed, and good ventilation. Since I was pleased and impressed with all of those attributes I can't argue with their claims, although some of the other helmets I have owned have been equally good without the Kubota's ridges and other aero features. Still, on the whole I am very pleased with the helmet and would recommend it, especially at the price.

This is my first Helmet, love the graphics and simplicity of the design. But due to my big head, even 2XL is a bit tight and unfortunately no one locally have a 3XL for me to try on prior to purchasing this on Revzilla. Took it out on So CAL summer earlier this year (100 Deg & 80% Hum), and vents works great to blow warm humid air through. My only discomfort on this helmet is the chin strap being too close to my throat, which irritate my skin every time I turn my head. But all in all, it is a great helmet if the size is right.
