Speed and Strength SS1100 Flower Power Helmet
Picked this up on closeout. Size chart is true to size. Cheekpads feel tight on arrival, but ease up within less than a week of light riding/commuting. Lost a star because of less-than-excellent airflow. I get more compliments on this helmet than any of my others and it's all because of those gorgeous graphics. Pick one up while they're still on sale and available!

A stylish helmet with a perfect fit!
I'm a new rider, and this is my first helmet. So stoked about it! I used the size chart, and the fit is perfect. I feel so comfortable and safe at the same time. Awesome!

Would definitely recommend!
This is my first helmet. I was concerned that having not worn one for extended periods of time would cause me discomfort, fatigue or a sore neck but after 5 hours of riding two days straight I felt great! It breathes well and I love the look of it!

I love this helmet the designs on it are very clear and awesome. For the price of this helmet you could not get a better helmet. This helmet would beat out a 300 dollar helmet definatly cheap for what you are getting

Poor removable inside pad design.
The looks, weight, and exterior finish are very nice. But to wear it is another thing. I have a medium to narrow head. There are pressure points squeezing in on my head just behind my temples right above my ears because of the design of the removable liners. If not for those two pressure points this helmet wouldn't be half bad. Because I have to take it off every 40 miles because of the headache it gives me, I would not recommend.

RevZilla Rocks, Fast free shipping, received within 24 hours from PA to NH, WOW.
I had tried a SS1000 2XL at a store and found it to be a good fit but didn’t like the helmet. Watch the reviews on RevZilla and decided to get a SS1400, but the only helmet in stock was a SS1100 (I like the graphics better on the SS1100 too). SO I ordered a SS1100 62 2XL helmet.
Received the SS1100 helmet in 24hours.
I found the helmet very difficult to put on and remove. The helmet was so tight that the padding was completely compressed. After 5 minutes my head was pounding from the pressure. I find the Speed and Strength sizing chart to be way off. According to their chart I should be wearing a XL. I can’t even get an XL on my head. The general shape seemed to fit well with my egg shape head. I would have liked to swap for a 3XL but SS does not offer one. Sadly I will be returning this helmet.

Great for the money
Got it on clearance for a little over 80 dollars, at that price it is a great helmet. Airflow isn't the best, but the vents are easy to operate while riding and do help a little. One really nice feature are the amount of settings on the visor, I generally ride with my shield up and sunglasses on, but when it's down I leave it open one click and have great airflow.
I've experienced fogging with the clear visor, but it clears up quick with a little airflow.
The quick release chin strap deal is kind of nice, but it is too far back in the helmet, at least for me and really digs into my neck sometimes. Also because of the lack of D rings it doesn't work on my helmet lock on the bike.
*Get the tinted visor if you can, it looks awesome*
