I am new to dual sport riding and wanted to get a new helmet that wouldn't break the bank. I ordered the GMax in hopes that it would fit and get the job done as my first, entry level DS helmet. It has exceeded my expectations. The helmet looks great! Shipping was very quick, and the helmet fit great on my head (M). The size guide was true to measurement. The only gripe I had with the fit was the 20mm cheek pads that come stock. They squeezed my cheeks too much to where I couldn't bite down without biting my cheek. But no worries, for $15 I ordered skinnier GMax cheek pads (10mm), and now the helmet fits like a glove! I also purchased the smoke tint replacement screen, too. Helmet and extra accessories all for right around $150. I haven't been able to go on a long mile ride yet, so I am not sure how comfort is going to be for a long ride. Around town, there is no discomfort on my head. The visor does catch the wind when going highway speeds. The first highway speed ride with the visor on led to the visor screws becoming a little loose which led to annoying rattling, but after tightening them back before continuing my ride, that was no longer an issue and it did not happen again. If the visor is in the way or catching the wind too much, a quick 2 minute drill with a Phillips screwdriver takes the visor off, and gives the helmet a mean, clean street fighter look. Wind noise with this helmet is not bad. I rode cruisers with half helmets before this, so really it is a nice quiet change for me. I haven't experienced how the airflow is during hot days. With it still winter time, and with the vents closed, the helmet does a great job of keeping the cold air out for an entry level helmet. The only air I feel is coming from up under the chin guard, but a buff around my neck and up on my chin stops that. The windscreen has a good seal and sit on the helmet, and I do not feel any air coming from where the screen sits. All in all, I am really glad I have purchased this helmet! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a budget friendly, entry level helmet.

I ordered the dual lens shield to reduce fogging in colder weather. It does a great job, and does not fog up at all. The only issue I have is that the lens will not fit in the visorless configuration without some modification. There is a piece on the dual shield on the left side that will not fit with the alternate plates used when the visor is off. The lens fits fine with the visor, but you'll need to make a cutout on the left plastic plate if you want to use it without the visor.

This is a great looking and good fitting helmet but also a very heavy one. The quality looks to be good. Can't wait to wear on long ride and see how it does.

My GM78 came in quite a bit too tight, even though I measured and checked and have a lot of helmet time. But I really liked my GM78, so I ordered two different sized sets of cheek pads to change the "size" of the helmet. Fabulous idea! Worked just like I wanted. I am very pleased. Easy to snap in and out. High quality. Yep, good choice.
