Although I haven't had as much time as I would like to use this helmet I have full confidence in recommending it. I also have a regular Bell Vortex with the flying tiger graphic scheme, so I have that to compare it with, as well as a current Shoe RF-1100. I wish I had discovered this helmet sooner. It is extremely feature rich. The flip up modular function is new to me, but really adds a lot of versatility. Besides the outer shield, which is also availlable in several optional tint schemes this helmet features an easy to use flip down tinted eye shield. I have found this to work extremely well and allows me to have the benefit of a tinted shield in bright conditions that easily flips up out of the way when its darker. This flip up shield is also completely useable while the front modular shell is flipped up. Talk about unbeatible versatility, this is it! The helmet fits true to size (mine is a size large) and is easy to put on and features the magnetic flapping strap restraint like the Bell Vortex helmet. The venting is quite adequate, and I expected more wind noise with a modular design. But Bell has done something right, because the from the wind noise - you'd never know it was a modular design. It's also not noticably more drafty than a conventional full face in colder weather, which I think is a huge plus. It looks and feels like a high quality product with outstanding graphics, and feels like it shoud be a much more expensive product.
