NOT REAL CARBON FIBER! I read the descriptions and knew that, but many others don't seem to know how to read...
The helmet has so many vents on it so it can breathe super well. Plastic eye shield slides up to expose face and defog, and full face slides up too so you can talk at stop lights without talking off the helmet.
Pretty much everything you want in a good helmet. Hit it with a potato from a potato gun (wild night) and it shattered the plastic but the styrofoam below was unscathed. Rocked my head a bit but the fact that I don't have a potato in the side of my head means it works. The potato was moving about 250 fps for all you out there who know what kinda damage that can cause. Equivalent of the shotgun beanbags the riot police shoot into crowds almost. Knocked me down, but saved my life. :)
I hope it never has to save your life, but in that event I'm almost certain it will save your dome. Be safe! :)
Heres the deal, for a $40 helmet what do you really expect? When I opened it up it reeked of deisel. At first it was tolerable but after a while it gets nausiating. Also if you are not super muscular this helmet looks rediculous. I have to wear a heavily padded jacket just to keep my body somewhat proportional. It looks like a big bubble on your head. The visor and face flip up are useful features however the face flip is constructed of a cheap plastic so everytime you close it, it'll only snap shut on one side. It can protect your head in the event of a crash and if thats all your after go ahead and get it. On a semi posotive note the carbon fiber looks 100% real from far away but up close you can tell its fake. Another really good thing about this helmet is its weight. I've owned a few helmets in my time and this one is really light. Its simmlar to a motocross helmet maybe a little heavier. In summary, if you want a quiet, oderless, and arrow dynamic helmet THIS ISN'T THE ONE FOR...
I bought this helmet a week ago and I have used it a few times. I have to say that for the price the helmet is very good!! Only problem I have had so far is the visor fogs up unless you are moving. Other then that I have to say it is a good fit and very safe helmet from what I have seen so far.
