My first high end helmet. Looks great, fits slightly snug. Was wearing a xl before and Shoei recommended a medium according to my measurements. I could have went large, but it is still breaking in. Compared to my 10 year old $80 helmet, I am a bit let down. It is slightly quieter, it is a little better in the wind on my FZ-09, it has about the same ventilation. It is a little lighter. I would be content if this was a $400 helmet, but I am not totally satisfied for the price.
I was looking at this helmet because it is DOT and SNELL rated and Shoei is a reputable brand. I usually wear size medium in helmets and feel that this one is on the tighter side especially in the cheek pads, but they are breaking in nicely. The materials are nice and feel higher quality than other helmets I have.
Ventilation is good, you can certainly feel the effects of each vent, and opening the vents doesn't cause any significant wind noise or whistling.
The field of view is great. Changing lenses is super easy, and the pinlock system doesn't fog up.
I switched from AGV to this helmet and I have to say that I love it. I just have two issues with the helmet, first even though there is an adjustment for how tight the face shield is, it requires too much strength to flit up and down the shield. Second, this has more to do with the aftermarket shields but the Gold shield that I purchased for it does not block out the sun as nice as my other helmets shields. Overall great helmet.
