I took the plunge recently and bought the explorer last week, this month they are $199 but CG still had $99 display up I rode the last few days running errands and did some highway to test it out, even hit a good size downpour. Helmet was great, no leaks no rattling (loctite on visor screws) and so far comfortable. It's got DS roots and compared to my dirt MX HJC, a medium fits same for both and the explorer was a bit quieter. I bought the shield from CG, dark smoke tinted, for $15 !!! I really like the dark smoke and the drop down visor combo in direct sunlight. This is one of my favorite helmets now, mostly due to the look and a drop down visor. Its not the quietest nor the best when checking for cars (wind pull on visor) but it is very nice to look at and is comfortable equal to my CL-16 with a better liner feel. I am still in the honeymoon phase but once I have more miles on it we shall see how it stacks up!!!
