I chose this helmet because friends recommended Bell and price-wise, it seemed an upgrade compared to my Scorpion EXO-400 that I bought 2.5 years ago when I first started riding. However, I have many complaints and completely regret this purchase. These are issues you wouldn't know until you've ridden in it, and by then it is too late to return to Revzilla.
My complaints:
1. You have to buy a separate package to connect your Sena bluetooth to the compartment "designed" for it on this helmet. Unless you already purchased a Sena kit specifically designed for Bell helmets.
2. The NOISE! Helmet creates a loud whistling noise due to the poorly designed "bluetooth mounting" compartment (at ANY speed). Every time I turn my head slightly to the left the whistling gets even louder than it's already obnoxious noisiness. It's almost painful above 70mph, even with ear plugs.
3. While the convenient transition visor works, I prefer my previous mirrored visor and don't think this one is worth the money. I ride at night and in all poor weather conditions imaginable and this visor shape is the worst I've had at repelling rain or allowing speed to help wick the drops when tilting my head sideways while riding. Never had an issue with visibility while riding in the rain until this helmet. My "low-end" full face scorpion EXO-400 was fine as was my Fulmer. The fact I could see better without this helmet than with it on is a huge problem for serious riders.
4. This visor fogs horribly! Takes seconds for it to fog up after less than a minute of putting it on. Regardless of weather condition, a helmet shouldn't stay fogged up from simply breathing normally within seconds of putting it on. WTF Bell!
5. While ventilation is nice on hot summer days, this helmet allows way too much wind to hit my face. I bought a full-face helmet for a reason and this doesn't feel like one.
6. I know it's not the price or "quality" of a Schuberth or an Arai, but I had hoped this helmet would be better or at least as good as my EXO-400, which I paid around $130. It's not worth over $200. The cheek pads don't even feel properly placed compared to all the other helmets I've tried on at various stores. All I can do is pray this helmet is as safe as the the rest of the DOT helmets.
I saved for months to afford a new helmet, which I've needed for a long time... words cannot describe how disappointed I am in this helmet and in Bell for the way the Impulse was designed. Please, don't waste your money.
*If anyone is wondering, this helmet in a size small is about 3.2lbs. It's lightweight is the only positive I have for this helmet. #stillnotworththemoney

Perfect fit in my size 36 Women's Rev'it Leather Jacket. I like the CE Protection and it's not too cumbersome either. It adds a small hump compared to the flat standard foam that came with the jacket, however the level of protection is worth it and it's not super noticeable.

I wanted these for casual riding to places like Redbox, grocery store, etc. I was very satisfied with the level of protection these street-looking shoes offer, however, the size ran much larger than other typical riding shoes. Also, the front of the ankle portion felt very stiff and uncomfortable; ironically, I've tried on more comfortable motorcycle boots. However, I didn't have a chance to see if they would break in, because I needed to downsize. In Nike Running shoes I'm a size 7.5, but in most shoes in general I am a solid 6.5 (e.g., Toms, White House Black Market, Vince Camuto heels, etc.). I ordered size EU 38, which according to the size chart is size 6.6, but they felt a size or two too big and a little on the wide side. I have proportional little feet, but they are not "narrow." The shoe felt very stiff when i first tried them on, but I never had a chance to walk around much to break them in as I instantly knew I needed a smaller size.
As far as color/ style, the shoes are as pictured (I ordered black). The soles seem like they would have decent grip on pavement, a quality I seek in all of my riding shoes. The shoes are not as stylish as I was hoping, but I guess that's what we give up when shoes need to provide real protection, which I think these shoes likely provide.

I wanted a tinted visor and was deciding between smoke, mirror or Ruby and I have NO REGRETS about choosing Ruby. I never switch out my face shield because the Ruby can be used at night without overly hindering my ability too see in the dark (in addition to providing good protection during the daytime). It is a gorgeous purple-magenta color (depending on what angle you look at it) and it definitely stands out!

Yes, I recommend this product.
