Speed and Strength SS600 Speed Shop Helmet (Size XL Only)
Bought it for the airflow, but got no vents
This is seriously baffling. Why make all the images of this product have vents, talk it up in the videos as a feature, then send out a product that doesn't have the main differentiating feature?
Yes, it says "may come without vents" hidden below the description, but hey, I didn't actually see that until I purchased it, and it already shipped. Of course I was one of the lucky ones to get the no vents version.
Sending it back.

Great style, low price
If you are looking for a no nonsense, no frills helmet that will look good and just basically meet the requirements for what a helmet is, then look no further.
High points: Good fit, style, cheap
Low points: Not much protection, cups over the ears so you can't hear much of anything, sort of slides up a bit on your head against strong wind.

Looks cool but...
I've purchased three helmets in the last four months searching for the perfect one. This wasn't it. I bought it because I need something lighter weight than my modular helmet and this satisfied that particular need, but no matter how I situated it on my head something hurt---either my ears or my forehead. Fortunately my sister-in-law loved it and I gifted it to her. She usually wears a half helmet so this felt good to her, but if you're used to the cushioning of a modular helmet (like I am) this may feel a little skimpy on padding. I bought a face shield from Amazon for it (because it got better reviews than the ones on Revzilla) and they worked together perfectly.

Good helmet with a cool design all around. Sizing was a bit off. The chart said i would need a large when a medium was my actual size. Other than that, i cant complain about the helmet. I really like it.

Stylish & Comfortable!
I recently decided to go back to a 3/4 helmet after wearing a 1/2 helmet for the past 8 years- I am entirely happy with this purchase! Cool retro styling in a matte white color leaves me visible & stylish all in one. The helmet fit is great, the measurements run true to the sizing. I found this helmet to be very quiet, (but I have been wearing a 1/2 helmet for years- so I may not be the best judge). Very lightweight, super impressed with all the features for the pricing.
This is my first Speed & Strength purchase, and will definitely not be my last!

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.

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
