I picked up a Matte Black Large on Sunday; I was tired of riding pavement in a regular MX helmet and being pinged in the face by bugs. It was on the $99 deal, so I figured let's try it, especially after reading good things here.

In short, I LOVE it. It fits very well. I normally wear a Large, and the Large fits just fine. The cheek pads are ever so slightly snug, but I expect they will break in.

I do kinda wish I had gotten white or silver, but black goes with all my other gear. The black just shows dust and dirt more easily. I hosed it off with Simple Green and water after the ride, cleaned the visor, dried it and reassembled and it looks like new.

I REALLY like how the visor can be set at any angle and it won't close (or open) with the wind. And despite wearing (prescription) sunglasses, the flip-down tinted visor is useful too.

I added my own quick-release buckle off of another helmet, so I'm set there too. Oh and it's lighter than my old HJC CLX-4 MX helmet.
