Speed and Strength SS1700 Lock and Load HV Modular Helmet
Great fit and function
This was my first modular helmet. I like a fullface helmet for the extra protection and for the full visor when out on the highway, but they can be restricting sometimes. This way you can keep your helmet on and easily flip up the front to see when you are gassing up or stopped to talk while out on a ride. Even with the front closed you have very good visibility. The fit was very comfortable for me with no weird pressure points or anything. I am very impressed so far and hope the quality holds up over time.. my other helmet is now in the closet.

So far I have zero complaints about this product, I recieved it on sale and after researching the price of most other modular helmets with the extras that I wanted this was a really good deal. i was skeptical at first because it seemed "too good to be true," but it's not. The helmet was a little tight on the cheek pads, but I'll chalk that up to it being new. Other than that, the fit was great, the quick release buckle is amazing and you can use it with out gloves. All of the vents and the buttons for the internal sun visor are easy to find and use while riding. Hopefully I will never need to see how it holds up in a wreck, but after reading reviews on all Speed and Strength helmets I'm more than confident I will be protected.

This is a great modular helmet for the price! Lots of features for the price! I've been told it doesn't look like a modular. I installed a Sena smh-10
Great helmet great price! Revzilla is the only place I buy anything from because of the bang for my buck the great service and fast shipping and customer service! I like the fact that you can watch a video on most any product they sell to get a feel of what your buying and get the pros and cons on the item.

For the money, hard to beat.
First helmet from speed and strength. At this price it is one heck of a value. Great product, have been enjoying it.

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.

This helmet is awsome. Everything about it is awsome. From the quick disconnect shield to modular chin guard. All day comfort is must on long rides and this one has it. I worth is helmet on my last run up to PA (200+mi) didn't need to take it off once. Great helmet all around. Highly recommend.

Great stylish value
This is a marvelous helmet. It fits my giant head snugly and securely, and the quick-release straps is a godsend. The airflow is pretty slight compared to my Icon, but it's not uncomfortable. I would very much recommend this helmet as a super value.

Great for beginners.
I purchased this helmet as a new rider, and I'm very happy with it. As far as helmets go this one is pretty great for the price.
I have nothing bad to say about it, I gave it four stars because it's all around good, five stars to me would be a helmet that completely blows my mind.
It's pretty heavy, but that's not a problem to me. Especially when you're riding you don't think much about the weight, and the wind lifts it some, in my opinion.
It's easy enough to remove the face shield (Do keep track of the parts and how they fit in though). And the internal visor covers my field of view very well without touching my face at all.
For the price, it's probably the best full face helmet there is. Along with the features it boasts, it's a good deal.
