OK below 45mph, deafening above that and poor design=returned after 1st ride
I live in the South and do a lot of commute riding on my Triumph Tiger and thought this would be a great option, especially after seeing another rider from about a 1/4 mile away wearing a helmet in the same color.

Mine arrived a bit banged up in the box from the factory (customer service was great about working with me) and my 1st impression is that at $129 you get what you pay for.

Pros:
-Better field of vision than my Shoei
-Vents are AMAZING (very cool on hot days)
-Cost
-Color (hi-viz yellow)
-Easy to remove & wash liner
-Good ear cutouts for headset
-Chin strap system easy to operate, even with gloves on
-Visor options (main & internal sun shield)

Cons:
-LOUD!
-Bad design: Visor scratched the shield when I flipped it up
-Big (maybe 10% bigger than my Shoei)
-Heavy
-Catches wind & pulls head when not looking straight ahead
-Not easy to mount external Bluetooth box (SMH-10)
-No easy place to mount external mount for GoPro
-Inexpensive construction (get what you pay for)
-No padding in factory shipping box
-Shield fogged immediately
-Did I mention it was LOUD?

If you look at the picture on this page you will not a small cutout vent at the neck line below the visor screw. On the one I received this vent now has a back cowl that protrudes from the helmet. This seems great for venting, but is the only spot to mount my SMH-10 and caused it to stick off the helmet about 1/4" and generate extra wind noise. I may remove the cowl, but I hate to potentially damage the helmet and block the vent.

Also, I've never worn ear plugs before on my commute, even on my Ducati, but this helmet is so LOUD (over 45mph) that I have to. This seems due to the high cutout of the neck line. However, this cutout also permits me to turn my head further when looking over my shoulder since it does not hit the armor in my jacket shoulders like the Shoei did. I also took the helmet off and went to carry it by the chin and my fingers poked through a cheap mess on the inside that looks like it was hot glued in place.

Overall this is a fine helmet for around town in you are on a budget, but terrible on the highway. I was making a lot of compromises for this helmet, but when I flipped up the $55 mirrored shield to try out the internal visor and then flipped it back down it was scratched in 4 places from making contact the the visor due to really bad design. That was the last straw.

I returned it, and the guys at Revzilla were great at working with me. Ended up biting the bullet and buying an Arai XD-4 in the same color. It's so amazing that I will never buy another "cheap" helmet.

A little less than I expected from a $135 helmet
As others have mentioned it does run a little large. I wear a medium in Shoei and a small fit me well (a little snug at first, but broke in nicely). The tinted shield seems to operate just fine as does the top vent. The front vent however seems to have just as much space between the fins when opened or closed. Visibility out of the helmet is average.

What really knocked my review from a high 3 - 4 star review down to a two was the quality of the plastic. The area where the black plastic meets the clear plastic on the front sides of the helmet was very sharp (probably sharp enough to snag on a set of gloves. The plastic is cheap enough to break off before doing any real damage to your glove). Additionally, the front vent feels like it may pop off as I'm taking the helmet off my head if I'm not careful. I bought an HJC CL-16 helmet a few years back for the exact same price and was impressed by the quality there. Unfortunately I this was not true for the AFX.

Hi-Vis Orange
Bought the Hi-Vis orange and it sure makes heads turn. Quite the stunner. Came with a clear shield.
Pros:
Excellent fit
Perfect for hot weather riding. Lot of vents.
Internal drop down sun visor negates the need to switch shields or wear sunglasses
Room for my Sena SMH-10 speakers
Doesn't fog up
Not loud.
Doesn't catch wind. Have gone up to 190 kmph without any issues.
Quick release strap

Cons:
Doubt the vents will last long
The face shield's bottom indentation distorts when sneaking a quick peek at your speedo (extremely irritating some times)
Not a winter helmet
Nothing to hold the extra strap after adjusting the chin strap.Keeps flapping about.
Visor can not go up all the way as it touches the peak, though the peak is adjustable.

Overall, it's an absolute steal for the price. Might just buy one more in a different colour!

Not a step up from the 39DS
While this might be a great off road helmet, it's street value is very questionable. I wear my 39DS all year round, but the 41DS has a high back, which lets the cold in right away. The new face shield has a trick bottom indentation, which distorts the quick look-down at your speedo, and the first detent is way too high. That and some excess glue, and a chin strap that was fraying, leave quality issues up in the air. This helmet was supposed to come out quite a while ago, and now we know why. Not even the internal drop down sun shield is without issue, since mine is so hard to do one handed, and not while riding. Very unsatisfied customer.

Great for OFF ROAD work! Past 50mph not so much.
So I ride a 2014 wr250r. Across town and in the dirt this is an amazing helmet. Great fit, internal sunvisor is easy to use and effective even with the light smoke to it.

Around 50 Mph and above wind noise begins to become annoying. At 70+ Mph it is hard to hear my music or listen with others are talking via blue tooth. Side note, there is enough room in the front of the helmet for the battery pack to my Sena 10R.

But for a $130 it is expected to not be perfect. Air flow is really good with all the vents open. I ride in the Central Coast and the hottest day I rode in was 102 degrees. As long as I was moving it was great.

Great for the money! I love this helmet.
I have never had a really high end helmet so I cannot compare it to those but I have always had decent quality helmets. I bought it for the look and the flip down sun visor I currently have a fly racing dual sport helmet, this helmet is lighter, cooler and slightly more comfortable that the fly helmet. The easy latching strap is the BOMB! you can easily latch and unlatch the helmet with any gloves on. Same with the flip down sun visor really easy to work with and very nice to have, sunglasses are a pain. The air flow through the visor works very well, better than my other helmet. The helmet is cooler but you cannot feel wind blowing through the vents. Once I was caught in a downpour and it seemed that the venting actually kept the face shield defogged. Let me emphasize seemed, I have not tested this again. I always ride with hearing protection and have never had a high end helmet so I really cannot say anything about the noise level. The only knock is due to the shape it limits you from lookinig down, kind of like wearing my neck brace with my dirt bike helmet. I run a tank bag with a map and this helmet really limits your ability to look down, like you almost cannot do it, I never tried it but I am not sure you could see your shoes with the helmet on.

Great helmet but it faded
I have had this helmet for roughly 4 months. It has never been outside of my garage unless it is on my head. The whole top of it has faded like it was left in a FL sun for a week. It is my only disappointment with it,. It fits well, vents great, can be seen for a mile. It's too bad it faded.

Works great for what it is designed for
I used the helmet for 11 days on an Vietnam motorcycle tour. The quick release, built in flip down sun visor, clear shield and air flow were perfect for that trip. The helmet worked so well for the on & off road tour on 250 enduros that I reluctantly sold it to the local tour guide - after days of his pressuring me to sell it to him. As for the noise complaints, it's an off-road helmet with a shield- of course it is noisier than a street helmet. For the money, in the adventure helmet category, this one would be very hard to beat. Unless something better comes along I will buy another one for next years trip.

Top of the line design!
I only wish the Shoei or Arai had the design of the FX-41.
I get more looks from from my helmet than I do from my KTM 690 Enduro.
