I was a little apprehensive about getting this product and did lot of research. I wasn't sure I would like how it would feel while riding and if it would be easy to adjust for different riding gear. I own a few helmets and jackets. The brace arrived in a package in several pieces and you have to assemble it. This takes about five minutes and helps you see how it all works for fitting. I found that it is very easy to adjust for different jackets as well as different helmets. I feel much more secure riding with this on now than without it. When I ride without wearing the brace, it feels like riding with out gloves it just doesn't feel good without them. People ask about it all the time and where to get it at. The brace does't interfere with head movement at all. The only negative is you can't wear a backpack with it. I do some commuting with it and have switched to a tank bag.

This is the second GP Tech I have owned the first is a limited edition Dreamtime. I really like that helmet but I didn't want to abuse the interior with more sweat, since i moved to Arizona. This Five Continents is a few years newer and it fits great, the liner is just a bit more comfortable the mechanisms are smoother the fit a bit more comfortable but still not loose. In all just a great helmet from AGV. The colors pop more than in the pictures, which I like, if you are wearing a helmet like this you want to be seen. The vents move enough air to notice the change and changing the shield is easy.

What can you say it fits well the dark screen is tinted dark enough for bright Arizona days. The rapid change is nice as well as the overall quiet of the helmet.

What can you say, this fits perfectly. The smoke color is just right for riding in the bright Arizona sun. Fit is excellent and the switch from light to dark shields takes only a few seconds.

This was an impulse purchase and one that I am glad I made. This jacket fits just right (5'7", 160#) in a size medium. It moves air well we have had a couple of days in the 90s, and it was comfortable when moving, the only thing missing is back armor. It comes with a back pad but I like something a little more substantial. Overall this jacket fits as well, and has the same features as my Dainese costing much more. Get this jacket while you can!!

Fun helmet I bought this one to rock while riding my scooter. It moves tons of air even with the optional chin bar. I like the hidden sun visor so I don't have to cary extra shields if I am out late. The styling is a bit different and takes a bit of getting used to. It has quickly become my wife's go to helmet when we are on the cbr. she wears it without the chin bar. The fit is more for a round hear than an oval but still comfortable. If you want a multi-purpose helmet, this works great.

Snug quiet attention getter

This is the helmet to own if you want to start conversations. It fits very snug with no pressure points that I have noticed. The fit is more snug than the new HJC rps-10 I just bought, but not as snug as my scorpion exo700. Very quiet when at speed. I have had this at 80+ and was amazed at how quiet it was. The only down I have is the gold visor, make sure your hands are clean when handling or you will smudge the coating. All in all I like it a lot I have had it about a year and a half.

Great helmet the graphics are awesome, if you want a helmet that gets attention, this is it. It fits like a shoei x9 if you have been riding long enough to remember those. The venting on the top moves a lot of air, but I am still trying to figure out what the chin vent does. It doesn't seem to move air in any case. the visor isn't a quick change type, but feels very secure when in position. I get comments all the time on the graphics, it is one of those the more you study it the more interesting it gets.
Pros Great Value, Fashionable, Comfortable, Rugged

Hav had the helmet for about 10-14 days. Great lid venting works well moves air across face shield enough to keep it from fogging. The fit is snug with out being too tight. There were no pressure points after a 2 hour ride. The paint job is a bit in your face, but then I don't ride my bike to be a wallflower. I like being a little in your face, and the paint job works for that. The paint quality is on par with some of my other helmets costing more. Can't be be beat for the price.
