This helmet is great it recently saved my life in a motorcycle accident because some girl walked out in front of me playing Pokemon Go and so I hit the breaks and swerved and crashed and smashed the back of my head on the pavement. Thanks for the reliable helmet it saved my head and did its job.
I own the previous version of the V3 produced in 2009. My size medium measures 28" from jaw-crest-jaw and weighs 1350g. Although there is no MIPS, it is a great helmet with an excellent liner and great fit. I recently purchased a new MIPS V3 on closeout and needless to say I'm a tad disappointed. The new V3 in a medium is both LARGER and HEAVIER than the older version. Some have stated otherwise, but it's clearly listed on the inside of the helmet. Come on Fox....a newer model....that's 1" larger and over a 1/2 lb. heavier than the older version....and more expensive?! The MIPS is cool, but it squeaks like crazy. The helmet also fits much tighter due to the changed liner and the strap liners are no longer sewed on. This makes the strap liner rest inside my ear making for an annoying and unsolvable issue.
Noticeably and measurably larger and heavier, plus a few other annoying attributes in quality of construction (that aren't even matched to the older version) mean you can find better if you plan on paying full price.
This is a great helmet for a reasonable price. It really catches ur eye with the flashy graphics. The air flow is superb. I live in Nebraska where the weather is hot and humid during the summer. I was surprised to find that wearing this helmet was very comfortable even with our hot and humid tempuratures. I would definitely recommend this helmet to anyone. Awesome helmet! Love it! ????????
I've had this helmet for a little under 2 months, already the button to hold the chin strap ripped off, and if you as so much set this on the ground the paint with chip and fall away, the plastic pieces to tighten down the visor are cheap and never stay. So overall I would say if you're on an extreme budget this helmet is for you other than that don't waste your time and money on this its cheap and you get what you pay for.
