This helmet looks great, and is very light, and you can see very good out of it. Thats probably the only good thing about it.. I didnt have any problems like the other guy with the shield or paint. But when the helmet is new, and you go to lock in the shield fully down, you will literally need a pry bar to open it back open. After a few months of openings and closing it, it gets very easy to open. The vents on it are basically useless. The padding sucks, i probably had mine for about 5 months, wore it every day, and it went from a large to an X-large. When going fast it is a parachute on your head. No aerodynamics at all. It is a way over priced for what you actually get. The shields they have to offer for change out instead of clear, also, suck. The tint on the one i had started rubbing off in about 3 months. The helmet itself will become VERY dirty and is EXTREMELY hard to clean after awhile. Overall i would buy 20 different helmets that are cheaper before id buy this helmet again. This helmet pretty much killed my interest in any ICON helmet there is.
