OK if you have a narrow face and don't have a chin
The Revzilla video review is fairly accurate. On top of that, here is some additional info.<br><br>The inside materials that touch the face are on the rough side (not soft touch). I felt they were too rough even for a cheap helmet.<br><br>The retractable shield has one intermediate position above the eyes and is easy to operate. However, it has optical imperfections that result in smudging small areas in your line of sight. Serviceable enough and I did not experience waviness or distortion in large areas. It does not go as low as I think it should - does fall below the horizontal line of sight, but a bit lower would be better.<br><br>The cheek pads and shape of the helmet are too tight for my face. Combined with the rough material used, it made for an uncomfortable fit for me. I am a solid medium sized head of 22.5", a bit oval, and with a normal jaw #not wide/heavy/forward#. However, on this M-sized helmet my chin touches the chin guard if I make chewing motions. The chin guard is not padded. It being so close to my chin and hard plastic,I don't think it will protect me well in a crash where I'd hit my chin.<br><br>The flip up part opens easy, perhaps too easy, with only one large latch. It is harder to close, sometimes requiring two hands. This hardness is only when the helmet is on my head, it is easy to open and close off my head. This means that the shell changes shape when my head is inside. The latch mechanism is metal to metal and once closed, feels secure. The flip up part does go all the way back and feels solidly put there and in the medium up setting.<br><br>The weight of the helmet is also a bit forward of neutral with the chin guard down, straining the neck forward more than ideal. With the chin guard up, the weight is neutral in a fairly straight up riding position. With the guard to the rear, the weight is shifted back from vertical, again straining my neck when in an upright riding position.<br><br>The side panels that cover the hinges stick out too much on the top end. You can see that in the Revzilla video too. This will, I expect, be a source of undue noise. I did not ride with this helmet so I would not know for sure. I'm returning it due to fit mainly, but these panels and the chin guard feel helped me makeup my mind quickly. The panel on the right on mine was sticking out more than the one on the left and I felt it would only worsen over time - it was repeatedly coming out of its clicked-in position and had to be pushed in to click in place after normal adjustments of the shield. So it just does not fit well where it is supposed to.<br><br>The helmet smells fairly strong of chemicals, but that would probably go away with some use.<br><br>The fit of the clear shield felt good and the detents for several positions up were nicely defined.<br><br>If my head's shape was more agreeable with this helmet, I would have probably kept it because of the reasonable price and features, despite the somewhat cheap feel of it. As it is, it is not comfortable and I don't feel safe enough for me to have to put up with the rough lining and the less than ideal weight distribution.<br><br>The color of the orange hi-viz version is nice and bright, better in person than in the videos and photos. It is a very saturated and bright orange in real life - would indeed be very visible.<br><br>Bottom line, if your head shape agrees with this helmet, especially if your face and chin are narrow, it might be a good buy for the price and features. On the other hand, both my cheap Bell and an beat up old Nolan 100 are more comfortable to wear and with nicer feeling/softer inside materials.
