This helmet is great! The price is very reasonable, and you get: a tinted internal sun visor, a Pinlock-ready visor, a CLEAR Pinlock insert, nice fat air scoops up top, headphone cutouts, and a locking chin strap. I've been wearing it for only a day, and I'm very enthused about it.
The biggest plus is the sun visor -- already, riding is way more fun without squinting all the time. Plus you can leave the sun visor down and the main visor up for max airflow. I'm also looking forward to removing all the pads and washing them periodically, as my intended use is for adventure touring.
The downsides I've noticed are that I can feel the "micro lock" chin strap system against my throat, I don't know if this will be an issue in the long run. And the sun visor seems to impart some waviness and optical distortion, though the main visor does not.
All in all, it's a very good-looking helmet and it fits me perfectly -- I got this in a large, and I used to fit my large Shoei RF-1000 (NOT 1100) very well, and I recently tried on a Shoei Quest large and that fit well, too.
In summary, this helmet is great, and i would buy it again and recommend it to my friends.
Yes, I recommend this product.
