Speed and Strength SS1100 Moto Mercenary Helmet
Great Helmet for the price
This is an awesome stylish helmet for the price. The fit was a little tight out of the box but after a few days the padding broke in and it fits nice now. Great airflow with the vents open. As far as loud, I've been using an open helmet for the last few years on my cruiser so the noise is not a problem for me but it might be a little loud for people that have more exp with full face helmets. I would buy another one

Great looking helmet. No problems!
Got this helmet for my fiance so she could ride with me. Helmet looks cool on her and works well.

I absolutely love this helmet.
I purchased a medium and it was to large for my head so I would say maybe go with a size smaller. I returned the helmet cor a small and it arrived three days after I gave it to the UPS store. I am overly satisfied with my purchase. The sm fits amazing and is very comfortable and stylish! The helmet I wore before would start to get loose when I reached over 60mph. This helmet fit really snug and doesn't budge a bit. I would recommend this product 100x over again.

Great all around helmet for any weather
A feature I never thought I would appreciate is the quick-release ratcheting chin strap. You can easily put it on or take it off without removing gloves, which is a huge bonus for me. I won't ever get a helmet with a normal strap again!
The breath guard works great, the front vent is easy to operate and definitely works when open, however the "top of the head" vents aren't as noticeable...it has to be pretty cold/windy to feel the wind coming through them.
Overall I found that a "Large" fit me better than an "XL", and I usually wear XL in other brands (like Bell). This one I suggest trying on to get the right size.
Also note the padding will break in quite a bit, so after a week of riding it gets much less stiff but still stable, and comfortable enough for very long rides.
One other thing - I got the blue/white version and it gets a lot of compliments (especially from older folks).
10/10 would recommend!

Great fit and style.
Great deal on a great helmet. Fits like it should for an average head shape. I got the mirrored shield for my matte black finish, and it looks bad *ss.

SS1100 Stars and Stripes
This helmet was my first and I am extremely happy with it. It fits very well and it looks awesome plus I have gotten multiple compliments about it as well. I have not had a single problem with the shield fogging with the clear or smoked shield which is awesome. My favorite part is definitely the quick release strap and it feels secure as well so your not losing any durability with the ease of use. The wind can get a bit noisy at times but mostly when there is a cross wind but nothing too bad I can still easily here my ipod over the wind. Overall it is a great helmet for the price.

The only issue is I get a little whistle at high speeds which can get annoying but I'm sure I'll be able to figure something out to stop it. You can't get a better helmet for the money, or even twice the money.

Nice basic helmet
I like this helmet a lot. The fit is kind of small (I usually wear a Medium, but I had to get this in a Large - my head may have grown a bit over the past few years though) but the comfort and style are worth the money. I purchased this as a replacement to my ancient Bell full face that was falling apart and this is a very comparable product.
The cheek pads are kind of tight at first but break in over time, the air flow is very decent and this helmet looks great with the smoke visor. Unfortunately, you have to purchase the smoke visor separately... for another $30 bucks. The quick disconnect strap is also a VERY nice feature. I often forget to fasten my helmet and it is very easy to do with gloves on.
Overall, there are not a lot of features in this helmet (get the SS1300 for more stuff) but the design is the big attraction and it looks great.
