Speed and Strength Women's SS1500 Killer Queen Helmet
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!

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!

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.

We got this for my daughter, she had tried on more expensive ones in the store. Then we found this one online and took a chance, best decision ever.

Bought for my wife, she loves it. Though on the heavy side, the integrated flip down sun shield and pump liner are appreciated. Quick snap/release instead of d-ring make donning and doffing this lid easier with gloves on. Wind noise minimal (though ride with earplugs) , ventilation adequate. An added plus was popping off the liner and discovering convenient recesses to install the Smh-10 speakers into.

Got this for my wife - what a shame! Better than my expensive helmut! Really well designed and excellent fit. Couldn't be happier

Look no further, you found the Killer Queen
Perfect fit, measure your head and you'll get the right size. I measured at 22" and purchased the Small. I simply love all the features and it is beautiful (see photo).

Awesome styling, great fit, stable and comfortable.
The rocker styling of this helmet sets it apart from most others. I receive positive comments and am always asked where I purchased the helmet. It fits the genre of rocker, tattoo, retro, pin stripe, rockabilly, rebel etc. Which is great for any woman on two wheels! The fit is very comfortable, yet stable. I feel 'safe' in it. My vision is clear to the sides with no obstruction. I love the quick release chin strap and the built in sun shade. I did not use the pump it air fit system, as the fit was perfect from the start! It is a bit heavier than the other helmets I have had, but those helmets had no added features in them. Also, I did have to remove the 'breath' shield because it seemed to funnel air up from my chin to my eyes, making them water terribly. After removing the shield I had no problems. A truly great helmet all around.
