Good, not great
I'll start with the outside: -matte color is really nice. It does have some coating on it that still protects the finish, but doesn't make it shiny. Keeps all the bug guts easy to wipe off -the inside breath deflector is big, bigger than I'm used too. Don't think it really does a good job bc the visor does fog up in cool weather, more than I would expect. It also blocks your vision of the speedometer if you just glance down with your eyes. Now I must tilt my head, which is one more time consuming moment between me and ticket. -some people say it is a loud helmet, I would say middle of the road at worst. If i do long distance driving, i wear ear plugs anyway, so this hasn't bothered me one bit. -if you are coming from a helmet without a quick release chin strap, it will take some time getting used to the fitment -if you are concerned about how your hair looks after a ride, the fitment and cushioning on the inside does a number too -there are a lot of features on this helmet which make it a great value, but all are not necessary -in addition to the ones mentioned above, the drop down visor is great. If you drive a lot at night, or come home at night, not having to choose between clear or tinted is awesome. Ive heard the switch buttons to alternate between the two is strong and solid feeling compared to other brands that do the same. I don't have experience with others, but they must be made of twigs, because it does not feel extremely reliable to me. Its lasted 10 months so far with no issue, so I hope those people are right. -The least needed of the features is the air pump fitted adjustment. If the helmet doesn't fit, this won't help. It does tighten the helmet a bit, mostly in the face and cheek areas, but I don't use it consistently, and could do without it. I also fear it may cause more fogging of the visor, as its position pushes your breath up into the visor -The helmet overall is comfortable and the removable headliner is nice for cleaning if you do a lot of summer riding. There doesn't feel like a lot of air flow, as even now with cold weather, my head feels fine with no drafts. The air intakes don't make a discernible difference whether they are open or not. -The only real drawback to this helmet besides no snell rating, is the fogging issue with the visor. If it is humid, or cool enough, the visor fogs up worse than I've experienced in a helmet before. Even at speeds of 45mph, it takes a mile or more to clear unless you open your visor and drive with the cold air drying out your eyes. If you drive year round in a cooler climate or have any concerns about fogging, you might want to search for other options. overall, it is a good purchase if you can find the right price. (I paid $120)
