I agree with this and I am nearly 6". I have ridden one with an XD-3 and don't think airflow overflow this helmet is very good. The Shoei is much better (but the peak is useless) even my old motorcross helmet was better than an XD-3.

The is a little ordinary behind trucks and sucks in cross winds (try riding in Wyoming or Idaho in the last two days), but otherwise I find it relative comfortable and I have done close on 80,000km on them.

All that said - I have never really been on another bike design to go down freeways.
