It's a good looking helmet, and it's comfy. I bought it as a passenger backup, but when I tried it on I immediately thought ZANG, this'll be my new City Lid. My daily commute is only about 3 miles round trip, so a cheap helmet that I can leave locked to the bike all day is perfect. But then when I rode it home, I found a few problems. First, the strap is about 2 inches longer than that of my Shoei's and my Icon. It doesn't look like much on paper, but it means you have to use the snap to secure the slack. And the D-rings have a cover flap that make fastening the helmet a bit of a pain. No big deal for a passenger lid, but it stands out if you use it 4 times a day. Second, above 40mph the windshield whistles. And that's all it took for me to fire the helmet as a daily commuter and shelve it as what I originally bought it as: a nice passenger lid.
I got this helmet for my 8 year old son to ride with me. He wanted the American flag one. The colors are vibrant. I wear the same size so I tried it on and it fits great. The padding is comfortable and soft, and the fit is snug without being tight.
I purchased this helmet in the blue with the skulls. The pics on here do no justice, there is alot of detail in the grafix. Other people have mentioned the whistling noise in the sheild. It is not very noticable @ all and it only does it when u have the shield open and r cruising, now if u bought this helmet with full face shield u would think that u would have it closed while riding so it shouldnt b a problem. The fit is great ordered a XL and it fit great. Shipping was very fast, recieved my helmet the same day they said i would, also this helmet came with warrenty and a cloth carry bag. Also i live in the most northern part of Ohio and it the beginning of April and it has been in the 30's and 40's yet so far this year and this helmet has kept my face pretty warm coonsidering its pretty cold and i ride a sportbike so there is no protection from the wind except what i have on. Overall very well worth the money I spent. Thanks Denniskirk.
i just received my new helmet, man it is awesome. the dirt track fans will love it. the fit is great, design is right for aerodynamics, plenty of room for people with glasses,has a wide view that should be easy too add tear-off post. the overall graphics is as good of quality as a custom painted helmet that will ran you anywhere from 500 to 2500.
Great helmet, once I got the correct size. According to the chart, I needed a medium, which I thought was small, so I ordered the large. It fit, but was snug. Went with the XL, and its fine! Great value!
bought this helmet on sale for a real good price!! it was a really nice helmet but it was a little big,all my fault though, i didnt read the sizing chart corectly,dennis kirk made it really easy to return and exchange for right size! awsome customer service! really happy with perchase,so i orderd my wife one while they were still on sale. thanx d kirk!
this is a great helmet. the price isnt bad either. why spend a ton of money when you can get a great product at an incredible price. i hope i never have to test it, but i would be very upset if i had to replace one of those $300 to $600 dollar lids. at this price point you can afford to buy more than one and have several different looks.
After trying on multiple helmets this was the best fit for me it's light and was comfortable! I did buy the mirrored finish sheild to eliminate the need for sunglasses and it works great too! Highly recommend both!
I liked the looks of this helmet. I purchased the red one. The sizes run a little smaller than what the fitment chart suggests. I should have ordered the X-Large, but chose the Large. It does fit, but is tight. Keep in mind though that over time the pads will wear down and the helmet should fit just fine. Who wants to wear a real loose helmet anyway? Great price, lots of built in vents, these are blended in well with the scheme of the helmet. Great shape and style!!
I got this helmet for $63, shipped. Couldn't have asked for more. The matte finish is great because I don't have to worry about fingerprints, and to me it looks tougher than a gloss helmet. The padding is comfortable. I ordered a size larger than I measured when compared to their sizing chart, and it fits great.(My head is 21.75" and I got a medium.) The vents are cool, but the front chin vent seems a little cheap. Haven't worn it in the cold yet so I don't know how warm it is.
Bought this lid for my GF who occasionally rides as the passenger for shorter rides. Helmet was lightweight, and seems constructed really well. XS fit her small dome well, even with just enough space to tuck her hair up inside. Vents are very basic, but should get the job done as far as keeping the lens fog-free. Shell seemed proportionate for the XS interior. Not overly bulky as some smalls can be. Overall, I think it's a good product for the money.
I bought this helmet for a friend of mine who came over from Australia and decided he wanted his own helmet to ride around with me - after wearing my wife's beautiful pink one a few times.
It does the trick - sits on his head, looks pretty good, keeps the bugs out of his eyes and he says it's comfortable. And I'm sure it'd keep his head in pretty good nick if he happened to hit the ground with it on. His brother wore it a couple of times and said it wasn't very comfortable (probably has a different shaped head), so that's why I knocked a star off for comfort.
After looking over it, I just think it's a bit cheaply made. I have an HJC helmet and I was comparing the visor attachment, the vents, the padding, and the AFX one just doesn't seem quite as sturdy. But it makes a good, cheap helmet to have as a spare.
I purchased the fx-90 helmet and recieved it two days later. The helmet was a great buy and for the money i spent, you just couldn't beat it. Dennis Kirk is a great company to work with. Many many quality products to purchase here.
this is a great helmet for the price..the fit was fine had no problems with the fit..the only issue i had is the way the helmet cheek pads are iit's hard to mount helmet speakers inside helmet i had to mount the on the on the helmet strapes.other than that i like the helmet and fit..the xl size was a better fit than alot of the hjc xl helmets i have tried on
I really like this helmet but the chin strap SUCKS!!! I purchased this helmet once before and everything about it was just great. However the nylon chinstrap started to shred and that is the only part on that helmet that cannot be replaced. I even tried searing the nylon strap and that even started to come apart. Consequently I had to buy a new helmet. I suggest the mfg. provide a replacement part or improve the material.
So bought this helmet for the price yeah never again. Read other reviews so i bought bigger to be on the safe side yup still small, Very strange the thing is an XL i pulled out the liner and the foam shows an XXL so really i think no matter what size you you get its not going to fit the way it should,Very poorly made. So in other words YEAH NO!!!
The helmet make a whistling noise when the face shield is closed above about 30mph. It has something to do with the seal on the face shield and the way the helmet is vented. I contacted AFX but they did not have a fix for me, so I only use the helmet in fair weather when I can leave the shield open a little to stop the whistling.
