Tried on this helmet at a dealership in the size I needed but wrong color and the fit was excellent. Ordered the size (XXL) and color I wanted and it fits like it is one size too small. The material and paint are excellent. Only complaint is sizing. The one at the dealership was probably more broken in and hopefully this one will fit better shortly.
We bought this helmet for my girlfriend. We had measured her head according to the sizing instructions and ordered the appropriate helmet. But we were concerned that the size would be off as we didn't have it in hand to try it on. The sizing instructions were dead on and the helmet fits her fine. She likes the style and doesn't feel to restricted by the way the 3/4 sits on her head. This comes with both a small visor (as displayed) and a full face visor which can be swapped out easily.
This helmet is acceptable in quality and build for the price but it is extremely mis-sized. I can't understand why a particular size varies among different companies. Last time I looked, an inch is the same on all rulers, so why can't manufacturers get the sizing right? I typically wear an XL helmet (7-5/8") but when I read the reviews, I saw where the helmets ran smaller, so I ordered a XXL (7-3/4" -8") When the helmet arrived, I could tell by looking that the helmet was too small but I tried it anyway. This helmet was tagged XXL but it was a medium at best. DON"T ORDER THIS HELMET IF YOU WEAR A XL OR LARGER HELMET- it won't fit. Play it safe and pony up the extra bucks to buy a Shoei- MUCH better quality and accurately sized.
THE FS-3 open face helmet is great. It is the best and most comfortable helmet I have found. I have a black one and when this one went on sale, I purchased another. It probably best to make sure that your face shield screws are tight, sometimes them come loose, but otherwise awesome helmet. It comes with a visor, but I like the face sheild, keep my face from getting sunburned. LOL. The inside is also removal, so you can wash, etc.
This helmet is what you would expect from an open faced helmet. The Shield comes off easily, and is replaced with a visor if you choose. This is a nice option to allow packing the shield (if you choose not to wear it all the time) for rain. The venting seems to work well, and overall, it is a comforable fit, with nice finish.
The sizing is, however, not even close. I've always worn an extra large helmet, wear a hat size of 7 1/2-7 5/8, and therefore ordered an XL. It was very small. I ordered the XXL, and it fits snugly. The fit is appropriate, but none to big. Order at least a size bigger than you need to save the return shipping costs.
