That's a good deal. Those seem to be a good helmet, I bought the wife one last month and am shocked at how good the fit and quality is. I do recall all the reviews said it runs one size large, and to order one size smaller than you would normally wear.

I'm pleased with my AF-37. For awhile I was having trouble with my neck and thought my helmet visor was catching too much wind. Then I realized it was actually the vents(across my shoulders) on my riding jacket. These vents would catch air like a parachute and put all kinds of pressure on my lower neck. The AFX helmet is the best summer helmet I've owned.
