Speed and Strength SS1300 Rage with the Machine Helmet
Chose it over much "better" helmet
Picked up a Scorpion EXO-500 with all the bells and whistles, but the styling was just too cool on this one not to pass up, so I ordered it as well thinking I would have to return it once I got a chance to try it on and compare features.
This helmet was way more comfy, the head-shape fit me much better, I loved the chin-strap, and the styling was just *awesome* and didn't make me look like a bobble-head for once.
The EXO-500 had the drop-down visor that this didn't and a cool air-fit system, but between the two I preferred the Speed and Strength, so I returned the EXO-500.

great helmet great price
I got this helmet for around 150 on a close out because there replacing it with the ss1600 witch has a rounder shape for fit I think is a mistake to stop making this helmet because the ss1400 is the right shape but doesn't have as many features and the ss1600 doesn't fit everybody but who knows I don't make the helmets what do I know. All in all pay full price get it on a closeout doesn't matter its a bad butt helmet

High-end features at a good price point.
I bought this helmet to replace a Shark Evoline 3 that I stopped trusting after it popped open in a tip over. It fit a little tight at first and then it kinda stretched(compressed) after a few long rides.
Great features for the money
DVD is always awesome!
It is a little loud, but doesn't whistle.
The anti-fog is iffy
My beard gets stuck in the pump
Its a great helmet for the price, I wish I had gotten this instead of the Shark.

great helmet for the right price
this is the first helmet i bought where i really have no complaints over. This helmet offers great style and fits comfortably on those longer rides. Airflow is great, my head doesn't sweat on those hot days (until i stop moving). probably my favorite thing about this helmet however is the quick strap, easy to put your helmet on and take it off with your gloves still on. This helmet is well worth the money. I am very pleased with this product.

This helmet is beautifully stylish, but definitely on the noisy side.

First one I got had a broken vent on the top. I sent it back and Revzilla sent a new one no problem. At first it is snug but the pads do break in. When moving the helmet has enough airflow to keep you cool. the visor is super easy to change when I switch from my smoked to clear visor for night riding. The visor lock is a cool addition. I rode through a tropical storm and I can say with certainty that it does stay fog free. The wind noise is above average but overall is a pretty great helmet for the price.

Good Inexpensive helmet
Bought two of these a few years ago, a large and a medium.
I wear a 7 1/4 size fitted cap. The large was a little to roomie and the medium was rather tight (maybe I just have a weird head). After wearing the medium enough I did break it in, however I wish it was a little bit looser.
The chin strap is great and easy to use and adjust. The inside of the helmet seems to be made of quality material and is comfortable. Also the helmet looks awesome.
The air vents are terrible. I don't think the top two do anything, and the chin piece is OK. That is probably my least favorite thing about this helmet. I ride in NC and on hot days the helmet does not keep me cool.
The face shield system is OK. It can be annoying to take off the shield because it does occasionally get stuck.
I did a low side going about 45mph and I hit the ground face first. I had a mild concussion after the accident but this guy did save my life. It did not crack the frame of the helmet or even the lens, I was impressed.
Over all I would say I am happy with this helmet for what I paid (i think around $150) if I had paid the full retail price I might have been more upset.
