Cost Benefit

Nice helmet

Overall I am really happy with the helmet. I found it to be tighter on my cheeks than my previous RF-1100, to the point of being uncomfortable, so I purchased the thinner 31mm pads and now it is just fine. I dinged the cost benefit a bit due to this fit issue. I paid $630 for the helmet and then had to pay an additional $42 to get it to fit. I know they won't sell them with all the pad sizes, but I wish there was a way to buy them with other pad sizes. My rides often encompass both light and dark conditions and having the flip down sun visor is super handy. It did take a bit of getting used to as if you have an itch, you have to open the visor and flip up the shield, but that isn't a big deal. One other minor issue with the sun shield is that it doesn't go all the way down and if you have to look at that transition spot between shield and no shield it gets a bit odd. That spot is right where the mirrors are on my Concours, so now, to look at my mirrors I have to tip my head a bit. Other than those issues, I like the helmet quite a bit.
