I bought this helmet in white for two reasons. 1. Since my face is not protected I figure it pays to make myself more noticeable/visible to trafic. Also white repels heat from the sun darker colors absorb it.
I usually prefer a full face, but once it got to the 90's it was just to hot for it. If you are not going to use a full face or usually wear a half helmet this is a good choice. It is a quality 3/4 helmet and a good value for the $$$.
The coverage is far better than a half helmit, The back comes down further. Althought the face is exposed, the sides of the helmit cover the sides of the face, and cover part of the jaw line.
The face shield is a plus. Flips up or down easly but stays put. Very good on the high way for protceting you face from flying dust and particals, while still staying cool. You can wear sunglasses with it up or down. So you don't have to constantly change lenses or use gogles.
I can't say it enough; if you wear a half helmet you should upgrade to a 3/4 and if you want to downgrade from full. This is the 3/4 one to get, really good and it is even SNELL approved.
Love the helmet and was set to keep it until I read the "fit instructions". Realized that though I thought it fit great, it was a tad too big so I just sent it back and requested the "small". An excellent helmet though. I get claustrophobic in a full face and they freak me out so this helmet gave better coverage than my present half helmet without the "closed in" feeling. Hope the small isn't too small.
My husband and I were looking for this helmet to match our goldwing. It was on closeout most places and not available in our size. Dennis Kirk showed it available on the internet and I called and they were very nice and let me know that yes, they had them in stock. I ordered them and in two days had them at my door. They were also priced lower than the other competitors. Great merchandise and great service
