GMax GM68 Helmet - Solid
Good deal on a nice helmet
This helmet is true to size and true to the rev-zilla description. The 2 included visors are easy to swap, the vents open and shut with gloves on, the finish is good and the road noise is muted.
I would like to inform potential buyers of the unintended consequences of so many vents: The bugs.
I love this helmet, but you need to clean the vents often. After 3 hours in the Connecticut hills, I removed many large and beautiful insects from the vents. I feel it is the price you pay for good air flow... Buy this helmet and clean the vents!

Bought as first helmet, originally thought it was pretty nice.
Then it fell off the hood of my truck and the face shield lift system broke in such a way that the shield doesn't stop when you lift it, it just keep lifting all the way off. I would have liked for it to withstand a fall without breaking, but it is what it is.
It still worked, but that got me looking into other helmets.
HUGE difference when you step up to $150+ range, mainly if comfort.
I highly recommend spending the additional $60-$100 to get a really nice helmet right off the bat, so you don't end up spending twice what you should when you want to upgrade from this helmet.
Overall, it's a solid helmet for the price, in hindsight however, I wish I bought a better one to begin with.

I bought this lid in matte black for my girlfriend and was really impressed with all the features. It came in a decent helmet bag but it came with a smoke lense as well and that came in its ownsshield bag. The lights on the back of the helmet are a nice safety touch as anything to make you more visible is a good thing. She is really happy with it.

Delivers what's promised at a low cost
I really like this helmet as a second option. The style has a sweet profile, good comfort, and in AZ, I'm happy to have the extra night time LED visibility on the freeways. Doesn't quite vent as well as some other helmets, but I'm also in a tough climate. Great helmet at a great cost.

Best helmet under $100
I first ordered a Large helmet, but could barely fit my cheeks in. I have a normal sized head and pretty round cheeks. I sent the first helmet back and revzilla exchanged it, no questions asked. They sent an XXL and it is a perfect fit for my face.
The helmet can be quite loud. The airflow is the best I have ever felt. Its like you're not wearing a helmet sometimes. However, the vents work so well they make a whistling noise. The light and additional smoke shield are pretty cool too.
All in all, I'd say this is the best helmet under $100.

Looks good, sounds loud.
This is the third helmet I've ever purchased/used. First off, the look is awesome. Very reminiscent of a design by a major helmet manufacturer without the major price tag. The vents are pretty cool (not a pun). It's still cold enough to not need to open them so I haven't had a chance to really test the airflow. The fit is fine. The only thing I've noticed is I can "kiss" the front inside of the helmet (which I could not do with my other helmets). Maybe it's just the shape of my head/mouth. The other drawback is the noise level. With all the vents I think this is unavoidable. It's not unbearable but it will get annoying on long trips. Some ear plugs or earbuds would solve this issue. There also seems to be pockets to insert the earpiece to a communications system if one was to purchase it.
Not mentioned in the description but included is the smoked/tinted spare shield and a smoked/tinted spare panel for the rear "tail lights". They also throw in some spare batteries, a nice plus.
Overall a fine helmet. I will definitely consider GMax for future helmet purchases.

Jack of all trades!
The features of this helmet and the value it represents make it a must have for any rider. If you are looking for value and quality this is a no brainer. Fits very comfortably and true to size. Noise and weight are average for the cost but its not excessively heavy nor loud. I wore this helmet on a long cold night (32F) and long warm day (89F), it performed outstandingly in every scenario. Light rain was not a factor either nor did it affect the lighting system protected a seal. The ventilation of this helmet is superb with five easy access overhead vents with that can easily be found with a glove along with a three
position chin vent. Removable wicking liner, without uncomfortable pressure points. Clear and smoke visor included, easy install and with multi locking position for city riding, great for traffic days. I love the helmet bag and extra visor bag that is included for this helmet. Smoke tint rear light and red light are included also, the light system will get you noticed during the day and night while reducing the risk of you not being noticed on the road. Perfect for upright and 3/4 riding. I highly recommend this product for anyone looking to have an affordable commuter helmet that will get you noticed while not sacrificing comfort and style.
