Speed and Strength SS1300 Live By the Sword Helmet
Hey Bono! I found what I was looking for.
I needed a helmet with better airflow and less noise, this helmet is what I was looking for.
The removable nose piece and chain guard are easily removed and stowed for hot day rides. The air flow is refreshingly cool. And the extra shaded visor helps keep temperatures in the helmet down. Unlike my old helmet, I am unwilling to refer to this as a "bucket."

Excellent from top to bottom!
I'm relatively new to the sport riding side of things. This was my first full face helmet purchase and I couldn't be happier. Great review, price, and service. I had questions about fitment since I've never really worn a full face and I didn't understand the intermediate oval terminology. I called and was helped immediately. The representative was very knowledgeable and quickly put my mind at ease about purchasing over the internet. Great product and website! Buy anything from this website and you won't be disappointed.

I love this helmet. graphics are great. its light, feels sturdy, comfy. haven't had it on the road yet but im sure it will do well. only complaint is that it does fit a little tight. but once broke in should be fine. over all its was a great buy cant wait to get it on the road.

Great helmet all around!!! Love it!!!
This was my second time picking out a helmet and i wanted something that was quieter and much better looking. I saw the SS1300 and fell in love with the Die by the sword/Red details. This helmet is just so sick and in real life the swords actually have a reflective kind of paint that just makes them pop!! As far as the quieter factor with the chin guard it keeps it nice and quiet within the helmet. I ordered the Silver/chrome type of sheild and it just brought the whole package together. Also for revzilla ,I have no idea how, when I ordered the helmet it was at my door in 1 day!!!!!!!!!! I mean i thought i was dreaming for a second and I couldnt be happier.
The only con that I have with the helmet is that the padding on the inside near where the "soft spot/The part where my hair swirls in a little circle". There is a break in the padding right there. If i punch the top of the helmet, Pretty hard that is, if actually pokes my head and I could see if i got into and accident where something hit there that it might leave a mark or hurt a lot. Keep in mind though that it doesnt bother me at all with just wearing the helmet. Its just when I punch the top is when i feel it.
REMEMBER ALL HELMETS ONLY COME WITH THE SEE THROUGH VISOR WITH THEM IN THE BOX. MAKE SURE YOU ORDER A TINTED ONE IF YOU WANT ONE. Sorry for caps but that is important as a side note.
If you are considering buying this helmet i would highly recommend this one!!!

Great for the price
First, I'll speak on fit. I was on the edge between a medium and a large. I went with the large. The cheek pads fit snug without using the air fit system. It's not real tight around the top of my head. I think I need a helmet with a little more of a round fit. This one is definitely an intermediate oval. I tried on an HJC IS-17 after I'd already bought this helmet and the HJC seemed to fit my head shape a little better. It's not bad though, and I think it fits tight enough to be safe. The helmet is comfortable with the only exception being the chin strap tends to dig into my adam's apple. This may be more because I have a more pronounced adam's apple than most. The air flow doesn't seem to be affected by the operational vents in the chin and the top. I can't tell when I have them open or closed. A good bit of air gets in under the chin though because there's no chin curtain. The visor works great and is easy to remove. The internal tinted visor is awesome and works great. It is just dark enough to eliminate the need for sunglasses. It could be a touch darker but is fine the way it is. I love the quick release on the chin strap instead of a D-ring. Overall, I'm satisfied with the helmet for the price. I didn't expect to get a $400 helmet for the price I paid. I think it's a great bargain and it will work for me for a while. It's a high quality helmet.

Muy buen casco
Es un buen casco,el único inconveniente que yo pude ver es la pobre ventilación que tiene,una vez abriendo la bisera se soluciona el problema o ya sea rodando a una velocidad considerable aumenta el flujo de ventilación.
