Great price, excellent sun visor and well engineered 'flip front'
Water gets in even when visor is closed!
When I got this helmet last year I thought it was great! however 4 months and 8,000 miles later its not as great.
The once incredibly tight fit now is very loose on my head which doesn't give me the greatest confidence in its ability to stay on if the worst happened!
Noise isn't too bad (for a flip front) with ear plugs and no worse than I would expect.
I personally have a major problem with the visor steaming up in any slightly damp/cold conditions, cracking the visor open a notch helps but if its even slightly damp water just pours in (and in the icy conditions last week actually formed ice on the inside of the visor which really didn't help!).
With the visor closed in the wet then water still manages to get in and run down the inside of the visor while water on the outside doesn't disperse. Some of these problems may be down to me and the numerous anti-fog products I have tried on the inside and the detergent on the outside but the leaking seems to be a standard issue!
All in all I am happy with the helmet, especially on dry, warm days and if I could stop it steaming up and leaking it would be perfect!
