The AFX FX-39 DS is above and beyond the old FX-37 DS. The helmet's comfortable, fits true to size, and venting is great. Just keep in mind that this IS an entry level dual sport helmet so it isn't perfect...
Pros: awesome styling, comfortable fit, great venting, ratchet style chin strap, adjustable visor.
Cons: this helmet has the ratchet style chin strap, so you'll have to find another way to lock it to your bike if needed.
The vents are a little iffy. My helmet slightly buzzes from the vents at high speed. Nothing I can't tolerate, but it's there.
Finish isn't 100%. I have drip marks from over spray on mine. You have to be looking for it to find it though.
Overall I love the helmet. It's in my top 3 helmets I use. Just keep in mind that this is no Shoei or Arai.

Yes, I recommend this product.
