Speed and Strength SS1300 Under the Radar 2.0 Helmet
I bought this helmet a while back, and I love the feel of it. Fits my head beautifully. Air flow is good, visor doesn't fog up, and It doesn't weigh heavy on my head. I would recommend this to anyone riding. Has a great style, and feel to it. Defiantly a good buy.

Bought the helmet because it wasn't to expensive and I really wanted a flat black helmet. At first the helmet was a tight fit but once it got worn in it was perfect and very comfortable.
It's a little loud but that really never bothered me. On the colder days my head never got cold.
The visor is very easy to put on and take off.
I would really recommend this helmet for the price and comfort.

One of the better budget helmets
I like this helmet because the looks are great and it's quiet at "highway" speeds when I commute to work. My only two gripes about this helmet are that the visor is not the easiest to remove/replace and they don't make an amber/yellow visor for this model although it would look sick. I love the ratcheting chin strap. Although the visors are difficult to remove/install, they are extremely high quality and scratch resistant. Even the mirror visor has proven to be more resistant to fading spots and blemishes in the reflective coating than other brand helmets I have. I would buy again and have a new respect for the brand because of the quality of this helmet.

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.

Excellent features at excellent price
This was my first helmet so I don't have much to compare it to but the helmet offers excellent fit and features especially for the price. Fit was excellent and very comfortable and has a pump up cheek cushions for those who like their helmets just a little tighter. Easy to manipulate sun viser and low key high visibility reflective markings do not detract from the matte black look. My only complaint is that the quick release chin strap though very convenient can be slightly uncomfortable depending on your riding posture.

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.

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.
