I actually have one of those Gmax helmets. The dealer threw it in when I got my R6 and I'm quite impressed by it. It's not as loud as it looks cause u can close those vents


not bad for free

I bought my wife a Gmax because I found it on sale and it is a really nice helmet. I couldn't believe it when I saw it. It's not this same one though.

That Akuma company was at the Motorcycle Show @ Reliant. I tried on one of their helmets and it felt okay.

Their ad slogan should be something like:

Gmax 68s got webbikeworld 2007 helmet of the year award. <shrug>


It does irk me a bit when people want to slam stuff but don't provide any 'real' reasons why. I can understand quality complaints etc...but if your going to knock something, give some good reasoning behind it.
