The size is perfect and it is exceptionally comfortable. The visor is so large, you can see your speedometer without moving your head down. Only complaint is that visor does not seal completely which contributes to the noise. The helmets air flow was perfect until I got a windshield... But im sure thats a plus on the windshield.

One major, one annoying problem
The helmet fits well, is comfortable and looks good. However, once you add speakers the helmet becomes a torture device. The speakers are pressed against your ears so tightly that they had to be removed after only a couple minutes. My ears continued to hurt for another 5 minutes as a result. Considering the helmet has recesses for the speakers it is perplexing why S&S would not provide enough room. Neither my speakers nor my ears are over sized so it should not have been a problem sizing the recesses.
Wind noise is the second problem. While noisy, the helmet does not buffet the way my last one did so it is a small improvement on a big problem.

Speed and Strength hit another home run
I now have over 1000 miles on this helmet and have riding it in all conditions in the last 3 weeks on my BMW1150gs. I hope this review will be helpful. First is fit. My head is 62cm and slighty oval. HJC and Schuberth are too round for my head. This fits my head perfect as it is just a little bit snug but no pressure points and has a neck wrap under the chin. I tried many module helmets in the 500 dollar and under range and the fit on this was outstanding. Airflow vents work really well and are easy to adjust while riding. Vision with helmet in any position is unrestricted and wide open. I rode in pouring rain and helmet performed wonderfully with no fogging unless I came to a stop, so I would move shield up one notch and problem solved. I have ridden since 1991 and I can honestly say it is the quietest helmet I have owned. Color scheme and styling is a bonus with reflective pin strips. I had a budget set of 500 dollars or less and to be in the 200 dollar range for this helmet was surprising. I adventure ride and never considered module helmets but it is the way to go. You don't have to spend over 500 dollars. My biggest advice. Measure your head and order or try on a least three or four helmets until you find one that fits perfect because that helmet is out there. Having Revzilla means you know they will work with you. I have ordered so much from them and NEVER had an issue.

GREAT for the money.
I bought this helmet a few months ago. I love all the features of it. The shade lens is nice and can be put away when not needed. The only this I wish they would have kept was the quick release strap like on the older models. I personal don't care for the D-rings. That's all preference thought. I will buy another one when I need a new helmet. One Best modular helmet for under 300 bucks. Oh and I didn't even realize that it glows in the dark until after I rode at night. safety is always good.

Good Quaity reasonable price
I have a Bell Star that I paid near $600.00. This helmet is comparable to the Bell Star, and a flip face to boot. The helmet fits a little tight, but is comfortable. The visor is extremely clear and easier to clean than the Bell. The face locks firmly into place, and has a nice chin cover. Overall a nice helmet, a bit small for bigger heads.

This helmet has great quality for the price. I debated between this one and a similarly priced Bilt helmet. I ultimately chose this one because the shield is anti-fog and overall it has a nice smooth look.

Nice helmet for the price.
This is a great product for those on a budget. The graphics are nice and safety is enhanced with the hi-viz option. This helmet fits round/oval and is comfortable. My main complaints are low air flow and high noise level even with the vents shut.
