I received my new helmet today and all I can say is WOW! The first thing that I noticed was the graphics and finish. Second was the padding inside of the helmet. Now that I got all of the eyeballing out of the way it was time to ride. I must admit from the time I put it on it felt damn good (maybe it's because I've been waiting for over a week for it to come in) but it was worth it. I realized that I wasn't familiar with the vents so I just opened all of them up just for S&G's. First thing that you will notice right away is the airflow. The air comes in and it felt as though I was riding with the shield up! So by now I'm too excited. I read a couple of reviews about the noise but being that I'm coming out of a KBC it was a lot quieter to me. After riding around, I decided to get up into the higher speeds to see if it would give me helmet bob. Well, I'm here to tell you - don't waste your time. This helmet was rock solid even when I stuck my head into the airstream. Next, I closed all of the vents to see if I could get it to fog up. Well, even with the breath guard closed and breathing as hard as I could without hyperventilating it did not fog up. It was getting late so I decided to go home and test the face shield for ease of removal and installation. I can’t change it in ten seconds but maybe it's because I'm not used to it. Nevertheless it was quick and very easy to change - even with my gloves on.
