I'd been looking for several months at replacing the skid lid with a new dual-sport helmet. The idea was appealing since I do truly dual sport my XR650L. I looked at the Fly Trekker, and the AFX 39 as well as the newest MSR X-Pedition helmets. All three are of the same basic mold. The major differences being that eth AFX has a ratchet type closure vs the traditional "D" ring of the others. I wear an XL in most brands. The AFX XL seemed to be quite tight on my head. The Fly and MSR fit nicely in the same sizing.
I chose the MSX because the fit and finish seemed to be of a little more quality than the Fly.
Riding with the MSR was great. On the highway the helmet feels light on the head and done NOT give the sail effect with the visor. You do feel it slightly if looking far left and right. The vision through the face shield is clear with very minor peripheral distortion. Tested up to 90MPH on the XR650L without a windscreen. Noise was better than average, ventilation is great and ease of closing the vents while riding is superb. Off-road this helmet provides a unique ability to wear goggles under the built in face shield or ride with the face shield up and expose only the goggles. Tried both SPY and OAKLEY goggles and the face shield will close with both models. I did have fear that the face shield would be in the way or fall while off road and it did not.
For $130.00 I can EASILY recommend this helmet. The only down side is the lack of available colors.
Yes, I recommend this product.
