    :bowdown::bowdown::bowdown: This helmet is absolutely amazing. It has such a nice/comfortable feel. The helmet looks to be made with amazing craftsmanship. The paint is nice and clear with no imperfections.

    The visor is nice and tight, but only requires a single finger to lift it up. It also comes with a tinted visor.

    Great helmet for the money. You won't be disappointed if you get one.

    will do. my opinion on noise will be a bit "off" though

    i'm used to flying small single engine planes that are terriblly loud, even with headsets on. noise doesn't bother me :dunno:

    i will def post here after this weekend though

    from the people i talk to that own this helmet, they tell me its pretty quiet, except when you open up the vents, but remember it has 8 vents so noise is to be expected as it has alot of airflow.

    It is a loud helmet, but nice for the price... Much louder than My Shoei's (Rf1000 and X11), and much much louder than my Arai Profile..., but if you wear plugs or ipods, no biggy...

    It's fit is for a round head, so if you are an oblong head, this may give you some head "ache"

    Mine did, as I am a oblong noggin... I loved my Arai Profile (which is perfect for my head shape), but I got a headache centered in my forehead if wearing the Gmax for more than 30 minutes

    I just tried it out this weekend. I didn't think it was loud at all. I wore it for an hour at a time and it was very comfortable. Keeps your face/head warm too in cold riding.

    tried finding a local shop this weekend that had one in stock or even carried it, couldn't find one, looks like I'll have to order it and figure out if it'll fit my girlfriends head...

    ^^^ that's the same color style i got for my girlfriend


    I ordered one from Revzilla... even if i have to return it with the 10% restocking fee, it's cheaper than having one ordered and paying tax along with the gas and time savings instead of driving around all over the place....

    tried going local, but in the end, it was a hassle to have these places special order it for me if i'm not sure her head shape will fit the helmet properly...
