I have only ridden with this helmet a dozen times but I really like it.
Twice I rode with it during a flash flood warning type of downpour - and it did fin no leaking.
The helmet looks dope, it feels good - the cheek pads could be a little bigger - this would help with the noise.
Vision is really good - the faceshield is very clear and a nice thick plastic - not the best seal when all the way down but definitely reasonable for a $100 helmet.
Really the only problem I have with this helmet is the face shield clicks - in other words there are three positions - all the way up, in the middle and all the way down. All the way up up and down are fine but the only other option is right in the middle - the face shield is so thick that it distorts the road and blocks your vision when it is in the "middle" position - this pretty much makes it worthless. It fogs up pretty quick so they really should have had a half inch open position to handle the fogging... Besides that the helmet rocks and has a really nice feel to it.
I have a 58 cm head oval head and the medium fit me fine - the cheek pads could be a little bigger but it is fine.
Yes, I recommend this product.
