It's a good quality build and the weight is fine but go a size up b/c they fit tight. My prev. lid was XL but this was too tight. I contacted Bell & told them it was good on sides but not front-back. Their rep recommended keeping the cheek pads but getting an XXL top liner for $15 & now it's perfect! The paint/graphics are great but it is noticably louder than my old Scorpion helmet. It's not that bad while looking straight forward but when turned it sounds like a vortex swirling around my head. I've gotten used to it but I wear earplugs when travelling at higher speeds for any period of time.

This helmet LOOKS BETTER out of the box than any picture can reveal! It is one AWESOME looking helmet! Airflow is GREAT, but when everything is closed off it is NOISY. The earphone holders inside will diminish any wind sound if you ride listening to your own music. I'd rather be listening to traffic myself for safety sake. The only other thing that I can say it is the TIGHTEST fitting helmet I have ever used! I even did what others recommended and ordered a size larger. I have a Harley helmet that has an opening windscreen and a face-up feature which opens so you can remove the helmet easily and let me tell you, I miss that feature. However, the look of this helmet far outweighs ease of use in my book. I am retired USAF and I really love the historic aspect of the Flying Tigers paint job! The only thing missing is the roar of the P-40 Warhawk engine!!

I replaced a Bell helmet that was really bothering me being too tight around my temples. I wanted a Bell so I could. Use my trans shield from my other helmet and the switch was easy. I went with the x-large and glad I did. I was right between the large and x large and the x large fits great and is comfortable I bought the red and white and it looks just like the picture and it really stand out, which I like the visibility in. Heavy traffic. Air flow is really good and the controls to open to close are easy to operate even with gloves on.. I do wish it had the magnetic tab on the chin strap but no big deal. It may not be super quiet but not bad. For the price an excellent buy. As always shipping wasn't fast and the status right on target.

The cheek pads are great, you can custom fit your helmet by exchanging the standard size for a plus up or down. It may not sound like much but it will make time in the saddle more enjoyable! Highly recommended optional accessory!

this helmet is first class in quality and appearance, but I ordered the helmet in the sizing chart listed and it fits snug, the cheek pads are tight and I cannot put my glasses on after I put on the helmet. The advertisement says glasses can be put on easily. I cant put them on at all.. If I cant see to ride, I have apparently wasted my money.

The shield is great!! The helmet is a little noisy, I have several Scorpion helmets that are quieter. The price including the transitions shield is worth it though.
