    Not that big of improvement over my street helmet

    Let me first preface this review with the fact that this is my first adventure/dual-sport helmet, so this is somewhat of a review on ADV helmets in general. Nothing was wrong with my street helmet but I read about how the adventure helmets were supposed to offer a wider field of view, allow you to use goggles, be more lightweight, have a sun visor, etc. Well, after wearing this for about a month and at least 600 miles, I'm not impressed. Sure it's a little lighter, that's why I got this one. But the visor catches the wind something fierce at highway speeds. My neck was sore after riding for a while. On long rides I have to take off the visor, which is time consuming because you have to use a little tool and remove 4 screws. Another problem with using an ADV helmet in general is that when you turn your head sideways at highway speeds it catches the wind more than a street helmet. And the shield is not as round so it's not quite as optically perfect. Also there are not very many choices for aftermarket shields with this helmet. I removed the shield and tried to use some goggles I bought and they barely fit in there, squished my nose so much I couldn't breath out my nose. When removing the shield on this helmet, I noticed the pivot corners were already gouging into the helmet and removed paint and left nasty scratch marks on the shield. This is hidden from view but it seems like a defect. The built-in shades work okay but it's hard getting used to because the lower side of the lens is always in view, unlike the smoke lens I put on my street helmet.
