Superior finish and fit. The smoothest rotating chin bar of any flip-up helmet I've tried on.
Cheek pads are too thick. They press on my jaw. Hopefully they will compress with time. Rotating sun shade doesn't come down quite far enough.
I really like this helmet. The finish is much better than my more expensive Nolan. All the parts rotate smoothly and silently. The clear coat finish is thick and feels soft, like the gel keys on my phone. It fits much more snug around the sides than my other helmets and feels lighter when it's on, perhaps because it stays in place better. I like the rotating sun shade but it bothered me at first that it didn't come down another .5". After a couple rides though I got used to it. I think the sizes run a little small. I probably could have gone with a small instead of the xs I usually wear. I do like that it comes in 2 shell sizes so I don't look like I have a giant head. I would recommend this helmet.
