Speed and Strength SS1300 Live By the Sword Helmet
I was wrong with past helmets
This helmet is awesome. This helmet is my third full face helmet. I wish I would have bought this earlier. The helmet has excellent ventilation (which helps being I live in Texas) and great field of view. It is a little noisy but no different then most helmets.

Soon as i put this helmet on, i knew it was the one.
It fit my head WONDERFULLY. Good weight, awesome fit, loved the drop visor and how it almost hits the breath guard. lots of bang for the buck especially for a sub $200 helmet.
Looks sleek. Aggressive. Fingerprints arent too visible after touching the helmet. 5/5
Only thing i found is that the colour on the vent (is it metal?) started getting discoloured from black. Not too noticeable, and its the only thing on the helmet that i have to complain about.
Otherwise, great beginner helmet. I would recommend this to anyone!

Sick helmet w/ great features for good price
I love this helmet. I moved from an SS2200 and was unsure about going to plastic from composite but I am happy with my choice. The features are great - I love the ratcheted chin strap and the easy open/close air vents. It's a big improvement from the 2200. The graphics are really sick - they're slightly matte, understated and just a little pop of color and design, which matches my bike great.
This helmet fits on the snug side, other SS helmets I wear a large and this large is very snug.
I upgraded to a mirror shield and I love it. It's easier to change than the older face shields and the field of vision is excellent.
Highly recommended, especially at the closeout price!!

Good looking helmet and good price
Moved to this helmet because I wanted a less bulky helmet than the Hawk helmet i started with. Got it in the OD/Matte green which no longer seems to be available, and absolutely love it. Switching visors is extremely easy with the lock n load system, and the clear visor is awesome - as is the dark smoke visor that I bought afterwards. Operating the vents with gloves is easy, as is tightening and releasing the chin strap.

Awesome helmet! Totally worth the price.
This helmet fit exactly according to the size chart. It looks awesome and very quiet compared to other helmets I have worn. It has great features, breathes very well and you can see everything. Very stable at highway speeds.

EXACTLY what i was looking for
this is my first STREET full face helmet, but have had offroad helmets in the past. first off for the price and features your getting i couldn't ask for a better combo. it had everything i was looking for and was actually cheaper than the helmet i was going to buy. the matte black is really nice but it seems like it scratches really easy. i barely tapped on my car door and it scratched a small dot in it so i feel like i have to keep it in a bubble in order to keep it pristine. but besides that i love the finish especially the graphics which are SUPER reflective when hit with direct light. they don't mention that but i like knowing ill be a little more visible at night. first time out it seemed to have a good amount of wind noise but lately not so much, maybe the order i had the vents open. but i have had a slight problem with fogging on the main face shield when not moving but just flip it and ride for a bit problem solved. the DVD or sun visor is a nice feature when i know ill be riding in the day and night and not have to have two shields. And while i haven't had a problem yet, it feels like it could break if lightly abused. and like other reviewers said the system to change visors is a bit tricky and could be improved it is a little heavier than i expected but i attribute that to the dvd system and air fit system, no big deal really. once im riding i don't notice it. the field of vision is not like im used to, i have to turn my head way more than i had to with my dirt bike helmet. not sure if that's just for all street bike helmets or not. but overall im really happy with this purchase (esp since i got it for only $120) and would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice helmet that's low profile while being packed with features. but like with anything esp. safety do your research, make sure it will fit you properly and has everything you need/want.

4th SS1300... Bring on the new graphics!
I love this helmet! Me and my wife both have two of these helmets. I recently got the gloss black version. They are fantastic to use with Sena Bluetooth units. Wind noise is quiet, the weight is reasonably light but most importantly it's very, very comfortable. My favorite helmet by far.

Excellent helmet for the money
Very high quality construction and the fit and finish is on pare with helmets costing quite a bit more
