SparX Tracker Helmet - Solid
Product is as described, nice helmet worthy of attention
Nice helmet for the money, If you wear glasses you will find it to be a tight fit with this helmet. All in all, a nice purchase for the money.

Lots of bang for the buck
I bought this helmet because I really wanted an internal sun visor, but I don't hate my wallet. The visor works great and is exactly what I was looking for.
I had to give the helmet a 4 for durability. Upon putting the helmet on, I tried to actuate the front vent by the mouth. I don't know how...but I managed to rip it off completely within 5 minutes of having the helmet out of the box. Whoops! I'm not sure if this is my fault or Sparx's, so, they still get a 4. It isn't *too* much of a big deal, as I'm in Florida and it's warm riding weather anyways.
I'm a large, I ordered a large, and it is a nice snug fit. Not too small, just perfect really. I wouldn't want it any bigger.
This is the first helmet I 've had where the vents worked really really well, but I haven't owned too many helmets.
Air flow is excellent.
I use the helmet for adventure/dual sport riding, and I feel that the lens/eye area is geared more toward someone who will be sitting in the crotch rocket/leaned forward position. But it isn't a problem.
I recommend this helmet. It's a hot button issue, but I just don't think you need to spend $400 to get a legit helmet. This works for me.
Sparx, how about a hi vis yellow tracker? Maybe you have one, I just didn't find it.

SparX Tracker Helmet - Solid
My first full face helmet, Didn’t think i would like helmets until I wore this one. For the price awesome futures and warranty. Fits as sad it would, comfortable and nice. Maybe add more ventilation for summer racing... Got a lots of complements and I have ordered a mirrored shield and never use the clear. Looks just gorgeous with mirrored. I loves it lol........

Excellent product for the price
This helmet provides excellent features, style, and durability for the price. The flip down visor is a great feature, it almost completely covers your face. The helmet is almost light but tends to run a little small. The only complaint i have is that there is not a lot of air flow in the helmet. If you are looking for a full face helmet with a flip down visor, I would highly recommend this product.

Good product for the price
I bought this helmet because I was looking for something relatively cheap that would get me through my MSF Beginners class. I was not expecting much from a sub $200 helmet to be honest. I love this helmet. The price was what I was looking for with the features I wanted. The helmet is comfortable and easy to get on and off. The airflow was not too good when sitting still or going slow on the little 250cc bikes during the course, but when I took it for a spin on my big bike and out on the road, the air flow kept me cool. I definitely would recommend this helmet to someone else looking to find something affordable but not cheap, if you get what I mean.

Great bang for your buck
This replaced my Symax II helmet; it's much lighter and quieter in comparison, and has far less air drag (no more feeling like I need a chiropractor after 5 minutes on the highway!). It's pretty comparable to my old IS-16 helmet, but the Tracker has deep ear pockets that accommodate my Sena headset nicely.
Field of vision is average - the only thing that was better about the Symax II. I'd like it if the shield portion came just a bit lower. It would also be nice if the tab that helps you move the shield up and down were centered (or maybe one on each side?), but that's just me nitpicking.
The bottoms of the neck pads fit a little narrow and the helmet pulls on my temples when I take the helmet off if I'm not careful, otherwise I'm happy with the fit. The extra little bit in the neck is probably part of what helps keep the noise down so well, though. Sizing in general is slightly small compared to HJC, but feels fine once broken in.
As for air flow, I really can't comment. I consistently run cold, so I'm a vents-always-closed kind of person.
Drop-down visor works perfectly every time once you become accustomed to where it's located.
All in all, I'm incredibly happy with this helmet.
