I have them all now. Full face, 3/4 1/2 and now this beanie. This is the most comfortable helmet I've owned. I hardly no it's on. I really wanted to hear my exhaust and all others covered my ears. It was 90 here today and I opened up the vents and felt the breeze on my scalp!
Nice for a DOT helmet. You still get a bit of the mushroom head look, but not nearly as bad as most DOT helmets. Stays on good even at, well REALLY high speeds.
The only knocks I have are to do with the straps. The straps over the ears catch a lot of wind. Some skull screws fix that. There is a small loop to hold the excess strap. It holds up to about 30 mph & then the strap starts whipping you. Just cut it shorter I guess
Still a good value for the money & Dennis Kirk ships amazingly fast!
Ordering, shipping was no hassle, The small shell size is appreciated by the passengers and they said the wind noise wasn't bad as all. when I asked what they thought about the helmet I received all favorable reply's. No one noticed the venting feature yet no complaints of being to hot in this Florida sun.
I like the weight of the helmet and the fit is good,very comfortable wearing. Cannot tell that the vents work as good as I was hoping.The visor was drilled very crooked, pretty bad job on that. I have redrilled it some and have managed to make it pretty straight.
I found order turnaround to be excellent. Perhaps the most efficient web-based business I've encountered.
I did not rate this business a 5 star because the sizing information was not accurate for the helmet I had ordered.
While the helmet was of superior design and quality, it was too small for me. Since the helmet purchase was coordinated with the purchase of a scooter, I ended up purchasing a helmet from the scooter dealer.
Another kudo for this online vendor was the exceptionally quick, easy and friendly return process.
I hope to find opportunity for future purchases from this vendor. From a customer care perspective, they most certainly "get it!"
