Great helmet, great color
I purchased this helmet a couple of months ago and love it. Airflow is not as good as I had expected. After removing the extra chin protector airflow is much better and no more fogging up, but a bit louder. Will put the extra flap in when it gets colder to reduce airflow and keep me warmer. I like how light and comfortable the helmet is, even after several hours of wearing it.

good value, excellent service
Order this helmet one size up if unsure.

Its a well made and full featured helmet, intermediate oval. I like the speed ratchet closure and the DVD. I'm generally not in favor of a modular helmet but I commute to a military base daily and they need to see you to compare faces against ID cards; if not, what's the point.

The finish was flawless; the Hi-Viz color really pops in morning commuter traffic. I teach the MSF rider courses and have converted many students to HI-Viz gear. Happily, its coming more into fashion - if you are wearing a white helmet for visibility, you really should consider this one for your next replacement.

I read somewhere that the helmet rides noisy but have not noticed this when riding back roads at speed. When riding distance for fun I'm usually in a full face lid (currently a S&S 1500). I like the S&S brand for its features, safety certifications, and very reasonable price.

Excellent Value!
I was looking for a replacement for my 5 year old HJC. I ride every day and knew that I wanted a modular. This helmet ticked all of the boxes on my list and somehow still managed to be significantly cheaper than other similarly featured helmets on the market.

Fit:
I find that the helmet seems to hold tighter to my forehead and around the top of my head rather than the sides. I am sure this is partly due to the shape required for a modular. When the flip-up is closed, it pulls in tighter to my cheeks. I find it very comfortable. I wore an XL in all of my previous helmets and bought this in a L after seeing several video reviews.

Features:
Speed Strap Chin Strap - I love the Speed Strap latch mechanism. It works perfectly and has enough notches to allow for the colder days when I wear my thick balaclava.
Air Flow - I really like the design of the air vents. They are easy to operate and have a very positive feel to them. I don't think they will wear out and stop staying open or closed any time soon. You can instantly feel the cool air on the top of your head when you open the upper vent.
Internal Sun Visor - The internal sun visor is a must on any helmet I own. I find this one easy to operate, but the location of the "switch" for it makes for some very tight fit with my ScalaRider G9. It is not so bad that I can't still work both with my winter gloves on, though.
Speaker cutouts - It is nice that there is an indented area to mount speakers. I would say they could be deeper, but they do function nicely.
Shield - I find the shield to be very clear and has no imperfections to impede vision. I do wish it had a detent that kept it in the "just cracked" position. There is no spot between closed and about 1/4 open. With that being said, the helmet does close very tightly, which contributes to the lower than average sound levels.
Pinlock - I saw somewhere that this helmet was not shipping with a Pinlock visor, but the one sent to me has the clear Pinlock shield. Now they need to start selling the Pinlock insert and my fogging complaint will be addressed. I ride any time there is not ice or snow on the road, and anything colder than around 45 degrees gives me condensation on the visor. More so when I have my balaclava on because it directs breath upward into the helmet.

Safety:
I am very impressed that this helmet not only has the expected DOT safety rating, but also, the ECE 22-05 rating as well. This is unheard of in a helmet at this pricepoint.
I find the chin strap, flip-up mechanism and latch, and overall build quality to be very good. I expect it will do a nice job staying together to protect my noggin if ever called to do so.

Summary:
For the price, this helmet has many features that you won't find on any helmet that isn't a couple of hundred dollars more expensive. It is well built, comfortable and I think Speed and Strength is on to something good.

The weight is awesome, cold weather comfort...ummm No!
This helmet fits way large unless you have a fat face although it doesn't wiggle around. I am a solid medium in most every helmet I've tried on, but this one has no pressure in the cheek pads and none in the cranium. To the good, it doesn't wiggle around, probably due to the light weight. To the bad, pulling down the chin bar is almost impossible without two hands. Again, maybe a small would have been a better choice. I love the lightness of this helmet. I find myself head checking way more and wind buffeting is greatly reduced. The noise is loud and turning your head puts a ton of air in through the modular seal. Now to the really horrendous part of this helmet...if you ride in cold weather, prepare to ride with the visor half up. It does not have the just cracked detent and it does NOT flow air in the upright riding on a 1200GS. You will fog over immediately. It takes a significant effort to open the shield, but it does provide a great rain seal. I live in Charleston and downpours don't phase this helmet. The last few mornings it has been down in the 30's and managing the air flow in the helmet has been an absolute nightmare (caveat...I do have my GS windscreen in the full upright position). If you pull your chin down to your chest, the helmet will flow a bit of air. To sum up? I love the weight, the ECE rating, the face shield is optically correct (no distortions) and it feels comfortable, although a size smaller would be more "motorcycle-y". When the helmet is all buttoned up, the road noise/engine noise is almost negligible. Wind noise is significant. To the bad? The drop down visor is extremely thin (almost like a film) and vibrates badly if you like to ride with the sun visor down and the face shield up. Air leakage is very noticeable when you turn your head side to side at speed. No air flow and a major fogging/venting problem in the upright riding style. Final Thoughts? You get what you pay for.

I have this helmet and have not enjoyed using it. The window accumulates condensation easily and the helmet is on the hot side. Apart of that, the helmet is comfortable but since condensation affects your ability to ride safely, I do not recommend this helmet.

I had another helmet in XL and bought this one as an L. Just a little tight at first but has opened up nicely and is very comfortable. The ventilation isn't great, but it's also not a $600 helmet. I have it in the neon yellow/green dayglo and I know it's helped me be better seen as I've had a few cars start out in front of me and then stop. That color really gives you an edge.

Not fitting as explained.
I would've love this helmet, but I was told in the video review to get a size smaller so I went small. It was too small. I went MD and it was too small, but didn't really hit me til I rode with it. After 1 hr my head was hurting like crazy. I should've gone a size larger, but too late cus I already rode with it. And can't even sell it.

Airflow is also a problem. For a modular helmet is not bulky and very quiet, but that's where the ventilation problem kicks in.

Nice helmet for the money.
I only have about 500 miles on this helmet at this point but so far I'm giving it a thumbs up. It's a nice lid for the money and has performed well. Airflow could be a bit better but it's not bad.

One note on the fitment that may help someone. I also have an AFX FX-140 and the SS1700 fits my noggin a lot better. The AFX is a large size but it's quite tight on my jaw bones. The SS1700 is a medium and it's a lot more comfortable in that area - but definitely not loose. It's an individual fitment thing but this product does seem to have a bit more room in that area.

Overall this is a nice enough helmet for occasional riding/commuting and the pricing allowed me to buy some other safety gear.

Did not find any other helmet with this combo of features at anywhere near this price. The quick connect vs d-rings is awesome, can be done while wearing gloves. Hi-viz, drop down shade, quick connects etc. Helmet top chimney does whistle in the airstream at speed, a minor annoyance.

I have had this helmet for a couple of years now. I love it. Don't have to take my glasses off to put in on or take it off. The visor lifts up and still gives me full protection and the build in sun visor keeps me from having to change my glasses. Highly recommend it.

I am a new rider ad i had been shopping for a long time now. I was wanting something that is Hi-Viz, good for my money, and would last awhile. This helmet seems to do all that plus, i like that it is Modular and has quick features. Since i will just be a cummuter biker this goes over than my expectations and hope that it will keep me safe.

Did Speed and Strength ever offer the pinlock insert? I understand the shield is pinlock ready is their an insert or inner lens yet? Thank you.
Dominic P on Apr 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I think the replacement visor has the pinlock attachments.
I see pin-lock posts in the video, is the pin-lock shield available? Is it included for the SS1700?
A shopper on Sep 26, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The SS1700 does, in fact, now come with the pinlock faceshield. I have not been able to determine why, since they apparently do not offer any kind of inserts for this helmet.
He said in the video that there is room for a com unit? Is that some kind of bluetooth device?
A shopper on Oct 8, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I use the Sena SMH10R w/ the velcro adhesive that comes w/ the unit on it. It is very helpful and yes, comm unit = bluetooth or any other talking device.
I'm interested in the Speed and Strength SS1700 but I would really like having a Pinlock shield. The SS1700 looks like it comes with a Pinlock ready visor but I don't see mention of it and Pinlock doesn't seem to make a shield for it. What's the deal with Speed and Strength and Pinlock?
Thanks,
Ray
A shopper on Jan 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I called S&S and they said that there was not a pinlock shield made to fit their helmet. They gave an answer that didn't make any sense to me.
I suggest he call them himself. Things have have changed.
Always glad to help you guys at Revzilla. Who knows, I might get Anthony's autograph someday. Just kidding but I really do appreciate the videos. BTW, I am now wearimg a Shoei RF-1200 on my BMW Ç600 Sport. VERY NICE.
