Speed and Strength Women's SS1500 Killer Queen Helmet
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.

Beautiful but noisy
I purchased this helmet for its style, and it delivers there. I love that the silver paint is reflective. The red lining fabric around the face really pops.
Functionally, I like that you can change out the cheek pads to customize the fit, as well as an air ballast to pump it up if it's a little loose. The visor is wide and clear. The drop down shield works if you're in a bind, but I prefer to ride with my shades. Not sure about the ratchet closure system. It is easy to operate, and has good padding so the buckles don't bother under the chin, but not sure how that will live up for the long haul.
My big beef with this helmet is wind noise. Invest in some quality ear plugs if you want this to be your primary lid.

Comfort and style
Well worth every dollar. Comfort and supportive. Two lens. Got many compliments on the style. I'd highly recommend - and I did a lot of research before buying this.

good for everyday riding
this is a second SS that we have (for my GF)
not enough ventilation for hot weather riding (especially long distance)

This helmet has a lot of extras and it is very comfortable!
Love the drop visor! The colors are amazing--I am completely happy with the design. The helmet fits securely and is still comfortable.

Looks awesome & wears well
I love the art on this helmet, very hot looking. Also has great ventilation. Flip down sunglasses are a nice feature. The outer visor is clear though, so from reading other ratings I ordered the black one. I didn't switch it out yet. Wanted to take it for a quick ride first to make sure the sizing was good. I have a small head and the small size fits nice. On the snug side, but im guessing thats a good fit. Takes a bit getting used to the padding snug under my cheekbones but great helmet. The interior padding is removable for washing which is real nice. I love my new helmet!!! Great quality..
