SparX Tracker Helmet - Solid
Excellent for beginners
This is my first helmet so I don't have anything to compare it to, but after riding with it, I'm amazed at what I bought for the price. With the visor closed it's really quiet, but gets a little louder the faster you go. Still, at 60 mph, I never once think ear plugs are necessary, being on a plane is louder. The air flow is superb, I can feel it going through the helmet and it keeps my head nice and cool. The sun visor is awesome, I don't need to worry about carrying sun glasses or buying darker visors. Pulling it down is easy and it has an easy release. My head is 23" and the large fits snug. It desont squeeze my face and when I shake my head violently to test, it stays in place. The longest I've worn it so far is 2 hours and it felt completely normal, like a part of my head, no worries on wearing it on long rides. It does fog very very slightly when it's a bit cooler outside and I'm standing still, but it clears up almost instantly, no added fog protection or anything. The only downside is the color, black was the only available color for size large, blue would've looked cooler, but for this price, it's a steal. I have matte black and always get compliments for how cool it looks anyway. 5/5

Great budget helmet with great features
Bought this helmet after returning a closeout GMax that did not fit. Overall very pleased with the helmet. The fit seems true to the sizing chart. Adequate venting, though more would always be better. My one gripe with the helmet is that the front vent cover feels pretty flimsy, I wouldn't be surprised if I accidentally break it off before too long - but that is outweighed by how much I love the built-in sun visor. Works very well and is far quicker than changing out the lens every time it's bright out. Definitely a great helmet for the price!

Good Helmet for the price
This was the first helmet I've bought in quite a long time. I didn't want the cheapest, yet I wasn't looking to spend $300.00 on a helmet either. I love the flip down sun shield,it works great. I can't really tell the difference when I open the vents or keep them closed. The silver piece on the back got snagged somehow, and snapped one of the little pegs off inside the helmet. It's not really loose, but the peg rattles around inside the helmet when I carry it. Over all, I'd say it's a pretty decent helmet. vents are a little cheaply built, but what else can I expect for what I paid.

On sale, a great deal
I bought this to be my passenger helmet. This in a medium fits me more snugly than my Bell Vortex in the same size. It's noticeably lighter and louder as well (my bike sounds louder and wind is louder. Definitely need earplugs for highway riding). Despite having only a couple airflow paths, my head stays cool. The flip-down sun visor is a nice add on. It's great to be able to go for an evening ride without even having to think about which visor I have attached, or having to compromise visibility once the sun drops below the horizon.

Super light full face helmet with internal sun visor that has full vision coverage. Most internal visors don't come down far enough over the eyes & nose and therefore don't give full vision coverage, not the case with this helmet. Unbelievably inexpensive as it's a close out!
Buy this helmet with a couple of replacement shields while supplies last and you won't be disappointed!

If you can't decide whether to get it or not......
GET IT! I have always been a very careful buyer, especially when it comes to online shopping. There are so many options, different features and prices, different everything. I have been riding for a while, but haven't had to purchase my own helmet until recently.
I was feeling pretty hopeless when looking at all of the different kinds of helmets. I wanted something that would fit well, look good, have good features, be quiet and also safe. Also, I wear glasses so that was a thought as well. Maybe most importantly, I didn't want to break the bank. After searching around, I found RevZilla (AWESOME site by the way), and they, too had lots of options. But, I was searching helmets in closeout, and this one just perfect. I ordered it, and a couple of days later it arrived.
I couldn't be happier with this helmet. It seemed too good to be true, but it wasn't. The fit is perfect. I was right under a large, but got one anyway and it fits snug, but is not too tight. The sun visor is also awesome. The spring-loaded feature makes for an easy release, and the coverage you get with it is awesome (better than my dad's helmet). You also don't get that fish-eye effect that you do with some other sun visors. The quality of the helmet is overall very good, with a sturdy visor and nice padding. If you're debating whether or not this would be a good helmet for you, it's a great helmet for anybody. There is only one criticism, and it is a criticism true of almost every helmet out there. It does fog up (not much), but that is solved by cracking your visor at any stand still. Generally, if you are moving, it does not fog up (thanks in part to the included breath guard attachment). All in all, this a quality helmet with nice features at a great price.

Bang for Buck!
This was an amazing deal. I got the helmet for $82, shipped to my door in less than 36 hours! Helmet fits and feels great. The integrated sun visor was why I wanted it. When wearing it the visor is so clear I sometimes forget that it's already down. The only quip I have with it is the sun visor operation is very stiff, but I'm sure it will ease up with more use.

Get compliments a lot
I have never broken in a new full helmet before. SNUG!
Little claustrophobic inducing.
The cheek pads are so tight I can't smile. It just pushes my lips forward. : ---)
Love the sun visor!
Love the shape!
Love the white shiny head!
Stay safe and keep the rubber side down!
Con: See picture.
