The helmet has almost zero lift - I repeat, almost zero. Actually, I want to say none at all, but I can't bring myself to do that. It is quite a bit better than the Zox Roost RX helmet that I benchmark it against. Even at speeds, it is better than several street helmets I have. I was really, really surprised.

It does pull a little when your head is turned completely to the side. This was exacerbated by the fact that I need thicker cheek pads, the helmet was too loose.

Again, note that the helmet was loose, and still did not lift.

I was not able to compare to a Shoei Hornet or Arai XD, but it is the best sub-$450 DS helmet I have touched or tried.
