Speed and Strength SS2500 Urge Overkill Helmet
This helmet is very light and has a great visual area.
It has a very cool design and looks great with a sliver or black smoke visor. It fits tight so sound doesn't go through that well.

Great for the price
The graphic looks as good in person as in pictures. This helmet has basic features but does have a quick release chin strap which is really nice and now that I've had one I wish every helmet would. This helmet has a visor and it will catch a bit of wind, not unbearable, but you can notice it. I used it on a bike without a fairing/windscreen and even at highway speed I didn't feel like my head was being ripped off. Airflow is ok, not the best, not the worst. I'm comfortable in 80+ degrees with the vents open and 40-50 with them closed. Fit is a little more narrow than other helmets. I typically wear a small in other brands and other s&s but this helmet is a little snug around my face. I think the next size up would be too big overall.. It is still comfortable, even if you're in it all day, but it was the first thing I noticed when putting it on. The last thing is that the visor took a bit of getting used to because of the angle of the lens is different other helmets I've had. If you are on the fence I would go for it. It's a decent helmet especially for the price and it looks great too. I ordered the dark shield at the same time and it really sets this helmet off. I have had the dark shield on when riding at night, I would not recommend throwing away the clear if you do a lot of night riding but if the sun is up at all, even when cloudy, the dark shield works great.

well i purchased this helmet strictly for its functionality, it does seem to run a little snug. but not snug enough to have to go up a size. the quick release strap is killer! bottom line...great helmet for the price, plus it looks awesome!

Functional n looks badass
I was worried that the visor would catch too much air and wrench my head around like my motocross helmet does at high speed. It has a very open design however and it causes very little distraction. Very good visability. Removable padding very easy to take out and put back in. I've gotten lots of compliments on this lid. Great helmet for under $200.

Very quiet for a dual sport helmet.
It fits real good, it's very quiet and you have plenty visibility, great graphic design and light weight.

Excellent helmet looks so good
I have just recently purchased the urge overkill ss2500 dual sport helmet. I loved it in the pictures, and it looks even better in person. I love the aggressive dimensions of this helmet. A stunning piece of riding gear.
Well let's get started. I am right in the middle of the small size on speed and strengths sizing chart. I am so happy, this helmet fits so true to size. It fits me perfectly. Contact on every part of my head, from chin and cheeks to forehead and crown. It is a light helmet and very comfortable.
As far as features go. My favorite feature of all is the speed strap. I won't buy another helmet without a speed strap. The ease of use and ability to take the helmet off and on fast and with gloves on is something I now can't live without. The venting is good and the toggles are easy to use. The visor seals against soft rubber very well, no air gets through at all.
My only gripe. I just wish the visor had a tab for opening and closing so that I don't get smudges and fingerprints on the visor window itself (I hate smudges).
Did I mention this helmet looks and feels so good? ;)
Almost forgot, I was thinking I would buy a helmet case for it, but no need, it comes with its own helmet bag!
If you are interested in the ss2500 helmet but hesitant, don't be. Such a great helmet
My purchase was an easy choice. Due to the revzilla team and their superb video reviews.

Very nice looking helmet and very functional. Very good bang for your buck. Just takes some getting used to looking down through the visor... Just a little distortion but nothing major. Def upgrade to the darker visors.
