Speed and Strength SS1500 Off The Chain Helmet
Great for the price
Great features. Love the drop down visor. riding a db300f I do have to look down to see my gauges instead of glancing, but that might just be me. Otherwise a great helmet.

Rather nice helmet
I am giving it 5 stars based off of having it for only a day. I do not know how well all the features will hold up nor, have I had a crash test, but for now it is awesome.
I placed my order at 11:59 pm on a Sunday. It arrived at my house at 5 pm on Tuesday. So props to Revzilla for the quick delivery because I was really anxious to get the helmet.
So far I love his helmet. It is very stylish and the glossy black really shines. The padding is comfortable and I like that it is red. It is also pretty light. It is a bit noisy on the highway but I could honestly care less.
1) DVD- This feature was a must for me because I did not want to have to change visors for different weather. The tinted visor comes down far and the switch is easy to use.
2) Ratchet strap- It is ridiculously easy to fasten, and unlock this strap. Makes putting on the helmet a breeze, as well as taking it off.
3) Fog resistant face shield- I couldn't make this shield fog if I tried.
4) Air pump padding- Works well and helps reduce noise.
All in all this is a great helmet and I would recommend it to anybody who doesn't want to spend a fortune.

Awesome helmet, great value
This was my first S&S product, so I didn't know what to expect. I was very pleased when I received the helmet, the quality was high, it fit as expected and it looks awesome! Revzilla was great to deal with, I received the helmet in 4 days. Will be buying more in the future from Revzilla.

Check the size carefully before ordering!
I was between sizes when I measured my head. Being new, I didn't realize you should size down in that case. But it worked out ok, because the cheek pads were the right fit, but I had to order the extra small liner to fit my apparently child sized head. If I had started out with the extra small, I would have had to order small cheek pads, and the replacements are not adjustable like the ones that come with it are. I don't feel like the built in sun visor blocks UV rays just based on how I feel when using it, which is a disappointment. Overall, I am very happy with this helmet and I get a lot of compliments on how good it looks!

All around a great helmet
The graphics are simply awesome. That is what drew me to the helmet in the first place, and when I saw it in person I was not at all disappointed.
This is the first full face helmet I've had, so it felt large and heavy at first, but as I've been wearing it more and more I've gotten used to the feel of it. The interior is roomy but not so much that it feels extremely loose, and the air pump system seals up any gaps and makes the fit perfect.
There are ample air vents and I haven't had any issues with the visor becoming fogged while riding. The interior sun visor is a great touch.
I'd recommend this helmet to anyone looking for great style as well as functionality. The Killer Queen helmet has it all!

I love this helmet. With my hair my head is about 22 inches and I brought the x-small and it fits great. It does pull on my industrial earring but all helmets do. There is some wind noise but I was expecting some. I took the wind guard out because it felt too close to my face for comfort. The feature I absolutely love is the shield that pulls down inside the visor. This is perfect for dusk rides right before the sunset And great in traffic for some extra wind flow. The clear visor is so clear and crisp. I am stunned. I also brought a dark grey visor which is great for sunny days but has a weird fog or glare to it but not bad enough for me not to use. My husband and brother are totally jealous of this helmet and I feel badass when I wear it.

Great First Helmet
This was my first helmet purchase and in Texas with 100 degree temps, it is a comfortable helmet. The internal drop visor works great when the sun is out and so far it has been fog free. I"m very happy with this purchase and would not hesitate to get another one.

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!
