yeah for a "cheap" helmet" the lid is actually made pretty well. has all the features that higher end helmets have. plus i wont be too worried if i end up messing it up or deciding not to use it.

I forgot about 2Wheeltoyz having these for $100. It's Xmas and can't really afford an "extra" helmet. Let us know how the Sparx works out for ya! Hopefully you won't be testing the limit of this helmet (or any other helmet for that matter!).

I'm guessing the wind noise on them is loud as since the Sparx actually comes with ear plugs in the box.

lol. maybe. im gonna find out. but i think from what ive taken from all the reviews i read its actually not all that loud. and that they are pretty much give alot of away with there helmet to get thier name out there. if you order the special edition ones they even give you a smoked visor. same price as the graphics ones just some are dubbed special.

yeah its the s-07 and if your on the north side yamaha motorsports has one in a large you can try on or look at the construction. mine is not shown because its an 09 model and they only have listed the 08s. and yeah when i first saw it i was like man those graphics are pretty cool. i hate dragon graphics which every helmet maker have. and if you want one look on ebay they have a bunch of them for 100 shipped. from parts411.

as much as i hate to, I agree with you on that quote.

To me there is no reason to hate on someone for using their gear. What if thats all they could afford? Would that would person still be stupid for buying the helmet and using it, I dont think so. Just my .2


Sorry Racer X. Just seems that the negativity comes out if it something you dont like.
