Certain Bilt helmet....

Since I have no helmet since my wreck at MSRH a few months back I've been looking for an inexpensive helmet to replace it while I save my pennies in a pickle jar for a RPHA-10 helmet, I stopped at CG and was looking at the Bilt helmets, honestly the only one I liked was the Speed Air Pump model which is the top of the line full face non modular helmet, the cheaper ones suffer from ugly, scratchy liner so they're not too comfortable.

The Speed Air Pump fits me very nicely and the liner is pretty good (no Shoei or Arai nice, of course) and the quality is not as bad as I was expecting.

Anyone has one? opinions and criticisms needed, and I'm not interested in drivel from people that haven't use this helmet, there's plenty of that in the interwebz.

Leo,
Don't take this the wrong way.... but you tend to actually USE your helmets for their intended purpose. Don't skimp.

So how long have you owned that helmet? I'm also curious about it.
