The helmet can be really good. But not always.

I and 3 friends all have this helmet, But mine came with messed up vents. The screen lining the vents was improperly glued in so they look terrible. Haven't noticed this on any other AFX helmet so mine might be a dud. One of my buddies has the FLY helmet and they're pretty much identical but his mesh screening in the vents is heavier duty and nicer.
I filed a complaint about the helmet and Revziilla did offer to replace it but I didn't want to wait for it to ship again and decided to live with it. I can't see the vents when I'm riding ;)
Other than the defect vents the helmet is awesome offroad and pretty comfortable. it is a little tight on my ears after adding a SENA smh10 bluetooth communicator to it but that may be due to my installation.
Road noise is an issue at 65+ mph and the bill will catch the wind if you turn your head at speed. They do offer a kit to remove this though.
If you get this helmet, do yourself a favor and get the tinted sunshade for the visor... that thing is AWESOME! I've been using it for more than a week and its the best thing ever.
Overall the helmet works great for a cheaper helmet with the exception that quality control must have missed mine. But if you are more concerned about riding and less picky about fit and finish this is a good buy.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought one of these so I could talk to my buddy when we are dual-sporting through the woods. This works well with his Sena smh5, but the range is limited due to his device. He plans on upgrading to the SMH-10 soon. I used it all weekend and it worked great with wind noise only becoming an issue is our visors were up or at speeds over 65mph. (We both use dual-sport helmets with larger chin bars)
The other thing that this accomplishes is music. Something that I previously had to shove ear-buds in for and get sore ears. I missed music on my long solo rides but now I can either plug my mp3 player in or bluetooth it off of my phone.
Then of course it acts as a normal bluetooth headset and allows you to make and receive phone calls. Which I wasn't excited about until I stopped having to stop and wait for a phone call or text on my bike if I was going to meet someone somewhere. This works well for receiving and automatically turns off your music etc. Making calls can be frustrating but it might be my phone's voice recognition that is the issue. It has a hard time calling the same person. But your phone may work better. I have a Samsung SM93.
I am still getting familiar with the device but so far it's already impressed me and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a nice communicator.
The mounting was a little tricky but I use a axf 39 dual sport helmet and its non-traditional design and shell shape gave me a little trouble with the quick disconnect feature. But I usually charge the device with a phone charger with a long cable so its not really a problem. This device also creates added wind noise on my helmet at 65+ mph but I would use my traditional street helmet for long distance freeway travel anyways.
Yes, I recommend this product.
