Bought this helmet last spring with the intention of using on patriotic holidays. Missed Memorial Day due to illness, but was all over it for the 4th of July. And that's when I learned all about the helmet. No. 1, the fit is small, buy one size up. 2. the flag stripes on the helmet do not match up - they are slightly off on both sides as the maker added 2 exhaust tunnels on each side. This may sound like a bit much of a criticism but in these hi-tech times, I think they should be able to match up the graphics. 3. Noise level is high. 4. Put the helmet under a bright light and inspect it thoroughly. Had I done that after receiving it, I would have returned it. I cannot recommend this helmet.
