First let me say that I own and ride with one of these helmets. I shopped on price. My old helmet was tired and I needed a replacement. I have been very pleased with my purchase. It is well constructed, with good padding and good venting. The helmet is quiet and light weight plus it has some higher end features like an integrated, flip down sun shade. There are two features I find quite useful. The first is a higher cut away along the back of the helmet. As a sport bike rider this make the helmet more comfortable when my head is tilted back in the classic racer’s crouch. The other feature is the quick release strap fastener. A quick tug on the right side and the strap is off, no fumbling with “D” rings. It can even be accomplished wearing gloves. It’s a great helmet at a great price. I really like it which is unusual because I usually find something to gripe about when it comes to helmets.
