The one I ordered, following the size chart directions turned out to be so tight it gave me a headache every time I wore it for the first several months. I tried to adjust some of the inner padding and that has helped. But I would have gone to a medium instead of a small had I not trusted the accuracy of their size chart. Also hard to install the mic system I use.
I like the sliding sun visor. I like the clear face visor except that when it is down there is an incessant rattling in the helmet when riding. I wish the peak (duck bill, whatever) was a bit longer to shield sun glare as I drive.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The helmet did not come with complete instructions. I had to phone the company to find out how to use the front bar. Then I discovered it was NOT for protection. It merely serves a purpose of hanging the cold weather face cloth on. I tried to use the helmet with the bar on and the bar off. It fogs up the shield when it is on. But the shield stays clear when it is off.
The picture was deceptive since it looks like a full face helmut but really is not that at all. I took it on an all day ride and it was very comfortable though not nearly as quiet as I expected from the advertisement claims.
Yes, I recommend this product.
