I second that. Mine faded in just a few months.

Now I'm all nervous. Mine could be fading and I wouldn't know it because it's already white. ;)

I just bought a Hi-Vis Fly Trekker from Revzilla. First impressions are favorable. It is snug but I think it will be fine once I get the chance to wear it (10 degrees as I write this). I usually wear a large and that is what I got. I wear glasses and it is a little bit of an awkward fit but I think it will work out. I like the color, I hope it doesn't fade. Overall I am satisfied.

Mine fogs quite badly the second its rainy out - I ride down to about 45 degree temps - if its cold and wet, forget it.

Warmer weather its fantastic - I wear glasses as well and love how much space I've got even with the visor down.

you can really notice how much air leaks in through the lens when its cold out. That needs improvement for sure.

I've had mine since June. Overall I'd say it is a good helmet. I have a few gripes, which have already been stated:

1. Fogs very easily in the rain
2. Does not have enough positions (down, middle, up)
3. Shield does not seal when in the down position
4. Paint seems to chip fairly easily
5. Pretty cold in the winter (I commute to work daily in PA, temps drop to single digits at times)

I'm glad I bought it, and for the price I think it is a good value. However, I the helmet I came off of was better, HJC AC-12.

I'm a proud owner of the Spada Sting nowadays! Came from using a Uvex Enduro, which in my opinion was great (especially when I crashed with it), but this Spada is half the price and (almost) as good! The only downside from my point of view is following:

-Fogs up easily
-Doesn't have a wind stopper in front of chin.

But both are solvable! Just order a DIY pinlock and use the old wind stopper from the Uvex remainings.



(Oh and a bit of topic, but still a bit OT, the neck brace(EVS R4) shown in picture is awesome. Especially together with the Spada. Look it up if you want just a bit more safety riding your bike.)

Show us detailed pictures of the pin-lock install, I'm curious. :)

I haven't done it yet! Will put up pics when I have.. Might take a few weeks, though, as I am studying 600kms from home and my bike.

I had this issue AFTER taking the shield off once. Try loosening the side/pivot screws, moving the shield around a bit, then retightening. After some fiddling I got mine to seal up and snap down quite well.

have a black one rode with it to Death Valley last year vented well but noisy, works nicely with goggles. Kinda wish the shield was longer, and it doesn't like my sunglasses much they tend to slide up.
