The Corsa is designed for a specific envelope of opperation and it either performs extremely well or poorly depending on whether or not its in that design envelope. There's no middle ground.
Fit- Even though its the most adjustable liner short of inflatable cheek pads, the shell is a VERY compact race fit and is made for medium to oval head shapes, long ovals like me will be cramped, almost right up against the chin bar that hugs the jaw line tightly. Once it is sitting correclty on the head you notice it sits quite high and the front snaps can creat hot spots when not fit propperly. The chin strap is fairly short and almost impossible put on while wearing gloves.
-View- you do gain a little higher brim and the optics are excellent but despite the mfg's claims, its really almost the same field of view as average helmets just rotated upwards. The sheild has zero antifog and fogs instantly. The pin lock trades one problem for another in that if prevents fog but its seals are in the line of sight in a tuck so your vison is annoyingly split...
-Airflow, this helmet is meant for hight speeds and to be in a full tuck . if you are not tucked or below 55mph you will get no air flow. Tuck fully or go fast and its like having instant AC with tons of air over the top. The chin bar vents are less effctive. If faily loud compared other helmets that flow less air but quieter than my Bell Star at the same speeds.
At speed and in the tuck it just feels right and their is no lift to speak of. Its great when its in the speed and angle of attack zone it was designed for, but not all that comfortable for anything less. I ride mostly in that zone so I give it a thumbs up.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Pro's:
Very Comfortable,
Excellent Ventilation
Additional Ankle Support
Replaceable toe Sliders
Cons
A bit bulky
Thick sole somewhat vague on pegs
Over all its a perfect compromise for a boot you can commute or street ride with in comfort but equally at home on trackdays. I ride with the balls of my foot toward the outer portion of the peg, so the large square toe box touches down more frequently than my more (too ) narrow Diaense boots. Still the sliders are replaceable so no sweat. Pardon the pun but its true, in the right position these things flow serious amounts of air. In a tuck its like having airconditioning for you feet, though not as much in a more upright postion. Great buy. Kuddos to A*'s for listening to the customers.

Fit
Small
True to Size
Large
At 6'3 240lbs with broad shoulders atheltic build, and long limbs I'm your average small Texas sized rider. As such its tough to find gear that fits correctly. Being in south Texas we ride all year long and deal with extreme heat an humidity.
First off, the Racing is an exspensive jacket considering there is no separate liner, and not even a back pad. It does however come in great leather that feels broken in within the first few hours. The shoulder and elbow armor are excellent. Expected that didn't expect it to fit so well, finally a large size wih longer sleeves and a shorter front then back. You will look like Popeye no matter how big your biceps. The 56 provides just enough room for a back protector without being tight. Spot on sizing. The reflectors and red in the elbow double as turn signals becoming visable when you push on the bars one way or the other more than I expected. Didn't expect the full perf leather to flow this much air. It REALLY flows a TON of air! I got the white black red, but the white is not your typical ivory white, its more of an egg shell, which suprisingly is easier to keep clean. At this price point I expected locking zippers thru out, which it doesn't have but still an overall great buy for the fit and air flow far better than any of my other three jackets including a full mesh A*'s.
