First the down side such as it is. The helmet is slightly larger (outside) than my old helmet, it is also slightly heaver, and the light is not very visible in the day time so I will not be ordering the break light transmitter.
Now the up side. The helmet is a very sung but comfortable fit, The flip down sun shield is WONDERFUL several of my friends complain that the sun shield, on their helmets, do not come down far enough, the Gmax is perfect. Ventilation is very good and although the shield is not fully fog proof the shield clears as soon as you start to move, again lots of ventilation. Oh and the value is amazing.
I did consider the modular helmet but went with the full face for three reasons, the modular was heaver, more complex (more things to break), and maybe not as safe. As the prices were similar it was a close call.
I should mention that the fit is now snug but for the first few rides it was a bit tight on the cheek pads.
