I'm very pleased with these helmets - I bought two (one for a passenger).
I love the roundish style, you don't see many like this in my neck of the woods.
The color is superb, it is so bright that speed limit signs are visibly tinted orange when I pass them - everyone who has seen it agrees that it is difficult to ignore.
The smoke shield has some waviness to it, I had thought that this issue had been resolved.
Airflow is good, better than I was expecting based on other reviews that I had read. That said, the shield does tend to fog easily at stop lights, but some Rainex cleared that issue up.
Noise level is acceptable, though I do notice some whistling at around 50mph. I ride upright (cruiser) and have noticed that the noise level goes down significantly if I tilt my head down a bit (like it would be on a sport bike). Perhaps they had a more "tucked" position in mind when they designed it.
Overall I am well pleased with these helmets - if the smoke shield wasn't a tad wavy I'd be ecstatic.
