Has anyone tried one of these helmets? I'm looking at them for a cheap alternative. 'Read some good things about them. Any thoughts?

I think that's the one I bought the other day. if so it's ok a little loud IMO but nice fit and doesn;t seem to fog up either.

good helmet but a little heavy and has variety of pads design. Not bad for the money. It was my second choice after Arai.

My shield is starting to fog up after 1 year. I cleaned it with windex (on the inside) a couple times so be careful what you use to wipe off the snot.

Pridmore, Spies, and Yates are sporting them. But then again they don't have to buy them either.
