AFX FX-90 Freedom Helmet
Good beginner helmet
Good helmet for somebody looking to get into motorcycling. Good price, and good protection for somebody looking to get started. However, you get what you pay for, so there aren't many added features, air flow isn't great, and there's a lot of noise. Overall though, a good helmet.

Get price an features
Love this helmet. Air flow could be a little better but good enough. Only helmet that I could find in sold red to match my new bike. Now I'm glad it's the only solid red one i found. Fit is perfect. Makes me feel safe when I ride wearing it. Price is fantastic.

Fits head not cheeks
Fit tight around my forehead not my cheeks though. Moves about in the wind on the highway.

Good for short distances
I have taken this helmet for a 14hour trip and it was good at first but became a little annoying toward the end. It scratches super easy. It loosens up too much after it is worn for a long period of time (4 hours and more). It loosens up to the point of making you have a very sore neck by the end of the trip. It is NOT meant for riding in the rain, it leaks quite a bit. I do like the padding it is nice and soft. I also like the design and air flow. It is very loud but that was expected for the price. Over all, if you don't take it for a long wet trip it is a good helmet.

This helmet is great
I bought this helmet for my wife as a gift. She love it since the first time she opens the box. When she try it on she was so happy. I used to ride my motorcycle and this helmet is very very comfy. Highly recommend this product.

Admittedly, I was looking for a helmet to wear on patriotic occasions like the 4th of July, 9/11, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, and on group rides etc... I was not looking for a track day or commuting helmet that would see a lot of use. With that in mind, it is exactly what I was looking for. A big bold statement is being made when you choose to wear this helmet.
After receiving it, and being initially impressed with the quality, I decided to see if I could put communications in it so I could use it more frequently than planned. However, I soon realized that it does not have adequate space to fit a SENA Bluetooth speaker set without some adjustments to the cheek pad. I messed around with it until I made it fit. When I took it out for a two-day long distance road trip it became apparent that as a result of not being designed with communication devices in mind, the maximum volume setting on my SENA can barely be heard at "highway" speeds because of the helmet's noise characteristics. Other than that, I have nothing bad to say about this helmet. If you ride with earplugs, this helmet will not be too loud for you.
It runs larger and wider than other common helmet brands and it's comparable to HJC's budget models. I got an #XL# and it was too loose so I ordered the #L# size guts which snugged things up and made it fit me perfectly. There are two shell sizes for the FX-90. The smaller shell goes up to size #M# and the larger shell starts at size #L# and up. Keep that in mind if you end up ordering cheek pads or comfort liners.
The bottom line is, you get a chin curtain, nose/breath guard, and a overall comfortable and good looking helmet for $80.00. Spend a few more dollars and get the dark smoke and mirror tinted visors and you're good to go for around $100.00. That is a great price point and you are getting more than your money's worth with this helmet.
