Average tire, good price. It's a lot noisier than I was expecting for that tread pattern. Definitely has an annoying hum at city speeds (25 to 50). Grip seems good for what it is, and decent treadwear seems to have been sacrificed. It's a step up for gravel use and dry hard packed dirt from using pure street tires.

Plain and simple, this rider-to-passenger device works without a lot of "fiddling" or dangerous actions while riding.
It works well, audio is very clear below 55mph and clear enough above 55mph; of course, this varies on wind noise due to shield, helmet, airflow, etc.
So easy to use, my 10 yr old can use it. However, the volume buttons could be a little larger for easier use while wearing thick gloves. I do like that it takes a firm pressure to change the volume; this prevents accidental adjustment.
Durability seems good so far, however I have some concern with the wire and whether it is sturdy and protected enough for long term durability.
Having a two-way conversation is awesome using these instead of having a walkie-talkie style one-way conversation.
The one thing I would like to have on this is the FM radio; it only comes on the more expensive sets.
Finding a second Scala Rider Audio Kit (mic & speakers) from a USA company for a second helmet is a bit of a chore since Cardo System's website seems to be European based, but it can be done.
Overall, recommended. :-)

Air flow is great on this helmet. The face defogger vent works really well with the shield and all other vents fully closed (the helmet was a comfortable temperature with outside weather being cloudy & 45f). I was able to feel the difference that the top air vents made when open versus closed and am confident that summertime with this helmet will be much cooler than my previous helmet and comparable current helmets.
Fit seems like a Slightly round to Moderately round. I think it may be more round for me than I should have gotten and this may be causing it to be a noisy helmet. I certaily wouldn't call it average in that area. However, the chin blocker is a great addition on this helmet; no booming noises.
Ear space is plentiful and should work well when adding the intercom earpieces.
Color and finish is very good. No idea about durability as I have not had it more than a week.
Neutral comments: My pillion says it was amusing/interesting to look at the back of it during our previous ride. Seems to be most comfortable with a low steady flow of air and not a lot or very little air flow.
One negative: in strong side winds, the vents on top definitely catch the side wind and push my head to the side; much more so than my previous helmet with lower profile vents.
Yes, I recommend this product.
