SparX Tracker Helmet - Solid
It's a bargain for awesome protection.
This was my first helmet ever, so I really didn't know exactly what I was looking for but I was pleasantly surprised by the fit and comfort level. The ventilation wasn't all that great, but I wasn't riding in hot weather, so it didn't bother me. I got a little bit of wind noise from the sun visor switch on the left side, but it didn't bother me too much. The one thing that I have to say about this though, is that thanks to the small amount of money that I spent on it I'm still alive to write this review today. A guy in an SUV took a left right into me when I was going about 30 mph down some side roads. I ended up with a broken femur, a fractured knee with two torn ligaments and a couple more torn ligaments in my right ankle. I was awake for the whole thing and I could feel my head hit the ground, but it was like a pillow. I expected that my head would be protected but I never expected it to be that good. No head injuries and miraculously no injuries to my upper body besides some scrapes and bruises. Most of all though, my head was spotless. There was absolutely no pain from the impact at all. If you're on a budget and you need a helmet (which I now firmly believe everyone should) this is an awesome helmet for cheap. 100% recommended. It saved my life.

Not bad at all
I bought this helmet because of the dark internal eye shield that extends quite a ways downs. Which means greater sun shielding. It's 6 oz lighter than my Scorpion EXO 700, and the outside is noticeably smaller without being small inside. I'm happy with it and would buy it again.

Great value, but its just that.
For its price this helmet is everything I expected it to be. Its very tight in size though eventually I'm sure it'll break in. The wind noise is boarder line horrible at speeds as slow as 50mph. However I expected as much for the price I paid. Otherwise great helmet. The sun visor really is the selling point for this helmet, works great (though the trigger is a bit stiff). Also its not suggested to ride with the windscreen up and sun visor down as the wind will point all particles into your eyes.

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.
