This helmet is comparable to the $500 plus helmets available on the island; super bargain! It provides great ventilation which is a must in Hawaii. I can see this helmet holding up for a few years of 365 day use.

I do not like full helmets, but with the half helmet the wind would bother my ears. These work perfectly. Very pleased that I purchased them.

After upgrading my dated Zox dual-sport helmet to the AFX FX-41, I thought to myself "Self, you need to look more like Master Chief from Halo." Hi-Vis orange plus a cool mirrored shield?! What could possibly be wrong with that? As it turned out, nothing was wrong with that; the combination looked amazing AND it protected my face! Who knew? After my second ride, however, I began to notice discolouration to the mirror; two smudges of non-mirror that happened to line up directly over my eyes (when the shield was open it would rub against the visor of my helmet). It was a little annoying, but the shield still looked great!... And then I hit a bee... or a wasp or hornet or giant mosquito. Whatever it was it was BIG. It left a fairly disgusting pattern of itself on the left side of the shield. "No matter, I'll just clean it off at my next stop." Micro-fibre cloth and water removed the buggy remnants effectively... and removed the mirrored finish in the area equally effectively! O.o There is NO hard-coat on the mirrored shield to protect from wear; bugs, rocks, your fingernail, a slightly dusty cloth, a stiff breeze will wear off the mirror finish. Needless to say; I'm quite disappointed. I will only recommend the mirrored shield if you want to look cool before or after a ride (please store your mirrored face-shield in a vacuum-sealed, zero-G environment when riding in order to maintain its finish for future, cool-looking usage... say for fancy dinner parties or saving the galaxy).

other than that the helmet worked great during the Desert 100.

I have not ridden with it yet, as I'm still restoring my bike! So I can't say how the airflow or noise are. The fit, appearance, designs, and visibility with it on are great. My glasses fit inside it with no pressure against my head or ears. I'm impressed so far. Hopefully it stays that way after I'm on the road with it!

For a person that needs a Bucket Head fitting helmet this one will do. Purchased the 4X first and it was too large once it was on. There is a problem with getting it on and off. You will need to be strong and not an old fart like me, because you will need to pull the helmet apart to get it on. The next one I ordered was 3X a little less difficult to get on, but a great fit. I'll let you know when it warms up how the helmet performs.
