I've sold a couple of them. My opinion is this. . .I think a helmet should fit your head properly without having to inflate the cheekpads. PERIOD. End of Story.
However, the fit and finish was nice. The construction seemed up to par. if you want a helmet just for the internal drop down visor you should wait for HJC's new lid to come out. It looks nice as well, but only time will tell. I had a customer in the shop telling me how much he enjoyed his new helmet, but he was wearing an old Bell that had a missing liner, so anything would have made him happy. maybe someone who has ridden in one will chime in.

im not going to rely on inflatable cheek pads too much. i was just curious to see how people like them so far. i had a exo-700 series it was great helmet till i crash tested it about a year ago. then i now upgraded to a shark rsr2. im just wanting a back up/ street helmet. thats all.

I looked at the helmets at HoH and the International Motorcycle Show. The inside visor seems a bit flimpsy and hard to get down; otherwise, it looks like a nice helmet, seemed light.

I did let them fit me an Arai at the International Motorcycle Show so now I know what a helmet is supposed to fit like. I don't think I'll be able to replace my crashed Scorpion with another, if they all fit like my last one.
