Ive been riding with this helmet for the past 4 months. At first it was very snug and left marks on my face when I took it off because the cheek pads were so tight. After a while the padding has relaxed and it fits really well. The helmet is heavy, you can feel it after riding for a few hours and the helmet pulls forward. With the chin bar pushed back its changes the weight distribution to the back and its more comfortable to live with. The features work well, chin bar always locks into position and I've found the sun visor really handy and a lot more comfortable than wearing sunglasses.
The biggest drawback to this helmet is the wind noise, riding a 2007 VFR800 its unbearable. I've recently removed the ear pads to install speakers for a Sena bluetooth kit and the wind noise has increased again. It seems that the helmet funnels wind into your ears. A friend called me while I was wearing hte helmet and travelling at highway speeds, all he could hear was the wind. I've resorted to wearing a scarf to stop wind ingress until I get another helmet, its a real shame because its a great lid.
No, I do not recommend this product.
