This is a very nice looking helmet that provides top of the line protection. I've always owned Shoei helmets but was interested in trying something new. Unfortunately, I've already had more trouble with this helmet than I have positive experiences. First, I ordered a size medium (which I've always worn this size) and it was tight to the point that it would give me a headache. So I thought, no big deal I will just exchange it for a large. I now have the large and it fits pretty good, but is on the verge of having too much room (this was a surprise considering such a small change in dimensions). Also, I had seen reviews saying that the visor paint chipped very easily. This turns out to be very true and is a design flaw with the helmet. I've only worn it riding once and the visor paint already chipped off completely in one area. I only rode for a few hours, didn't crash or even get roosted, and made sure to set it down in a safe place and cover it when I didn't use it. Overall, these are minor issues but considering I never had any of these problems before it makes me wonder if I should have bought another Shoei. Also, for the price there is no reason the paint on the visor should chip that easily. I will be contacting Bell for a replacement visor and hopefully this issue has been fixed.
