Speed and Strength SS600 Back In Black Helmet
great style, poor fit
Love the style, hate the fit. First of all, the helmet is sized properly in the sense that it fits snug. The issue is with the helmets behaviour at speed. Even with the strap fully tightened, the helmet will lift at speed to the point of riding very high on the head such that pushing the helmet down became a ritual at every stoplight

moves at higher speeds
I bought this helmet back in late July and I have finally had enough of it. It has a great design and the vents are great; however, once you get up to about 55 mph it starts to move back. Every time I ride it feels like I am going to be choked out by this helmet. Also it sits way to high on my head. Really upsetting considering the awesome styling and the quality of other SS products.

Comfortable to wear and individual in design. The padding makes this a preferred helmet in dry weather for me.

Style and Comfort
I was looking for a classic vintage style and found it with this helmet. It is a lot more comfortable that the vintage helmet I wore as a kid. The weight and quiet noise level impressed me.

Cool Helmet but not for wide round head shape
Bought the helmet and took it for a 4 hour ride the next day. I eventualy got got use to the lower edge by my jaw line being a bit tight. It's definatly not made for wide, round head shape. I really felt the difference when I switched back to my Harley made half helmet for a short ride. It looks great and the vents work great but I would, and probably will, get the Bell 500 for my next helmet...and another Speed and Strength. Cant have just 1 or 10.

Great helmet but didn't come with vents
As others have noted, the description flat out says that it might not come with vents. While I like the overall style of the helmet, I really did order it to get the vents--I live in South Florida, where it's hot pretty much year round, so I was really looking forward to a little extra airflow. That said, the helmet is still a great, open face helmet. It fits comfortably and true to size.

Wish Mine Came With Vents
The description did say it might not have vents... Should say no longer has vents. I would have looked at a few other helmets. The vents were the main reason I purchased this 3/4th vintage style helmet. I'm very disappointed in that aspect. Otherwise the fit on the helmet is great a little tight around the ears, but i am sure that will break in. Dampens sound a bit, but I haven't taken it out yet. Liner does not come out, (concerned on care and washing -tips welcome) but feels comfortable. Flat black looks good, but shows fingerprints.
Bought the smoked Echo shield with it and works great and looks good! Also got the Paulson which unfortunately does not and now need to return.
Interested to see if the Bell 3-Snap Retro Visor will fit.
Shipping was fast!

This product don't fit my head
I don't know if it's a mistake on the label or this is the real size but I usualy wear L size and this helmet is very too big for my head.. It looks like an XXL but on the label it's ritten Large. So if you buy this product juste take a lower size..
