This helmet surpasses my expectations in every way. My first day was a 10 hour ride and no issues, no break in. This helmets looks fantastic beautiful finish and features. There is nothing I don't like about this. Note: I ordered larger than called for, return was no problem. Great company to deal with and great product.
I have had this helmet for about a year now. Like the appearance and functionality. Fit is tight with face shield down, I normally wear a large in every helmet except this one. Should have ordered xlrg instead of large. Not enough room on the interior for comms. Ear pieces rub and become uncomfortable on long rides. (using uclear comm system)
High Vis color is great, really like the paint scheme and modular design. Great cold weather helmet.
This is the 2nd helmet I have ever owned. This helmet fogs a lot in the winter compared with my old xp-509. Even with with shield cracked the right side fogs while the helmet lets a lot of cold air in on the left. It is also is WAY quieter than my xp-509, which although I haven't riden in enough helmets to know, is probably still a moderately loud helmet. But hey, I definitely can't complain with the price that I bought it for.
...nobody demonstrates the "Transformer" feature of this helmet? Cause it's a nightmare to remove and a bigger nightmare to replace! If I were on a trip, removed the front section and then had to try to reassemble it on the side of the road, it would ruin the rest of my ride cause it's so aggravating.
Next issue came with the fit. I take a large and using the measuring chart on the order form, my head was 2" smaller that the max for this manufactures.
But not only did I have to struggle to get it on, it was painful to remove. The drop down visor had a choppy action and by the 3rd try had hung up to a point that I had to pull it down to get it to fully deploy.
Finally, the face shield in the open position, barely clears enough space for an unobstructed forward view and when you slap it back down into full face position, its real aggressive.
The helmet quality is good enough and the concepts is great. But the execution of it's functions not so much...
