I tried one on at the Progressive Motorcycle Show in Charlotte, NC and then ordered one from Competition Accessories. Today was my first chance to give a real tryout with a 212 mile ride to Virginia for lunch and back home.

I like it. It is at least as quiet as my Qwest or RX-Q and I am now a big fan of the tinted, flip down visor. Most of the time, I don't want sunglasses, but sometimes I need them. Today, I flipped the visor down when needed and up when going north. I am way sold on the idea. Near the end of the ride we headed right into the low, late winter, late afternoon sun and the visor was plenty dark enough for me.

There isn't a Snell sticker inside so I assume those who say it is not Snell certified are right.

Some say it is tighter than other helmets. I can't tell for sure because I wear a medium and they all seem very tight in the jaw area when new and comfy after a few thousand miles. I assume this one will loosen up a bit and a bit is all I'd want it to loosen.

Regards, Chuck
