This helmet is chill like ice....it has a tendency to fog up a little on chilly nights.... But it's better choice than the full face helmet I got .... Doesn't fog up as much as that one. Over all .... Love this helmet like dove chocolate...
I haven't worn a helmet for years and I was amazed how much quieter it is to ride at 70 with this on. I love it for fit and look. The XL fits me snugly, the visor snaps up and down crisply. I can drive with the visor up or down.
I compared it to several other helmets locally. Fit and finish are no different from the 600 and 700$ helmets. I am impressed. I definitely would make this purchase again.
I wear this style of helmet in the warmer months. The Nomad replaces an el-cheapo half helmet that I had for a couple seasons. There is a bit of the "mushroom head" look to the fit. And I'll never use the ear and neck curtain, but my girlfriend uses the skirt on hers. Keeps her hair the way she wants it. Chin strap is too short and a bit of a pain.
I have been buying these gloves for years now. And the reason being, I love the palm pad it has for handlebar vibration. Very few gloves have palm coverage as vast as these. And they give a Great snug fit and not as bulky as other gloves are. All they need is to be broken in like and leather does. The only con is that they start to tear at about 6-8 months (which has to do with how often you wear them). But I don't mind buying a new pair every 6-8 months because they're are not expensive gloves either. So for the comfort, feel, fit and finish, it's worth it!!! I give them a 3.5 to 4 out of 5.
Exactly what I wanted - the perfect balance between being feminine but not too girly. Fits perfect. I got the smoke colored shield to go with it and it looks awesome.
The only feature that it doesn't have, is that the whole front doesn't lift up. I have another helmet with that feature and it does come in handy.
Overall, very happy with this helmet.
