I used to be a die hard ScorpionExo guy, no longer. My exo1000 had gone past the useful lifecycle (5 years). I wore an XL, according to their size chart, but found after an hour the helmet would put a great deal of pressure on my forehead. So basically long rides weren't allowed. I considered going to a XXL, but didn't want it floating on my head.
I went to my dealership, as well as a local gear shop and tried on a bunch of brands in both XL as well as XXL. No matter what brand or size, it still felt like a lot of pressure on my forehead.
My last resort (which should have been my first) was to email Revzilla and ask for assistance. Brandon gave me some great advice and recommended the Airmada and a couple others. The airmada was the only one within my budget so I decided on this graphic design.
Got it yesterday and the pics don't do it justice. It's beautiful and appears well crafted. Stuck with XL, so to make sure I'd be okay, I wore it last night while I sat on the couch watching TV for over an hour. Though it is quite snug, it didn't cause me any discomfort at all.
So if you find the shape of most other helmets don't work for you, or you had to go up a size or two; I'd recommend the Airmada all day.

First pair I got only lasted a day (2 rides). On the second day on of the clasps busted from the cord. Got a replacement thanks to the wonderful customer service of revzilla.
I got a L/XL, and I have to say I'm not a thick armed man by any means (muscular or otherwise), and these are pretty tight. I'm not even able to put the hooks to the holes on the side or these would be WAY to tight. Just hooking them back to the cord works but the are still quite snug. The durability on this second pair is pretty decent so far. I've had them a couple weeks and have used them regularly, even getting caught in a sudden down pour, they dried out pretty quickly. If not for the fact that they are so snug/small I would recommend them.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Fit is alright though I may have been able to do S/M as opposed to the L/XL. But then the straps may have turned out to be too tight. These let a decent amount of air through for ventilation. The straps take some getting used to, but otherwise a good product
Yes, I recommend this product.

UCLEAR HBC200 Dual Force Bluetooth Communicator Featuring Boomless ABF Technology, the UCLEAR HBC200 Force introduces Super Group Intercom and Multi-Hop technology, specifically designed for group communications with full duplex intercom.

Depending on riding conditions, the intercom range between two riders is up to 700 meters. Adding a third unit/rider increases the intercom range up to an additional 700 meters. Add a fourth rider and the entire group can communicate up to 2100 meters (1.3 miles) and so forth, in full duplex intercom mode.

Got these for Christmas.
Music quality and clarity are great. Only drawback is the lack of bass, but that was expected. Communication between the two is excellent, and easy to establish and end (as long as you remember what buttons to hold down). Buttons to me are actually easier to use/find with gloves on as opposed to without.
Phone calls I have a bit of an issue with (but it may be a setting on my phone). Person on the other end hears me great, though a bit muffled due to the proximity of my mouth to the front of the helmet, but there are no other sounds heard by the other person except my voice (no engine or wind noise). Only thing when it switches from music to a phone call, the volume of the call is a bit less, which may just be my settings on the phone. Otherwise this thing is great. The fact that it was boom-less sold me and I plan to have this thing for a long while. The fact that you can just buy the speaker kit alone will let this system go through multiple helmets. On my Scorpion exo1000 after installing I do get a bit more wind in the helmet at highway speeds but not too much to be annoying.
Yes, I recommend this product.
