Very nice helmet for the money, with good quality throughout, but the sizing for the AFX-90 helmet tends towards the small or snug category. Be advised that if you have a slightly narrow shaped head (as opposed to slightly round) and normally take a LARGE size helmet, you'll probably want to get the AFX-90 in an XL size. [The AFX-100 is apparently sized slightly differently from the AFX-90, by the way.] Regardless of this slight anomaly, the AFX-90 is a great helmet for the price and well worth the US$ it is currently being sold for by Jafrum.

AFX FX-90 Helmet Sizing
HOW TO DETERMINE YOUR CORRECT AFX HELMET SIZE.
MEASURE YOUR HEAD. Determine the circumference of the widest part of your head by using a flexible tape measure. Generally, the widest part of a person's head is the area 2.5 cm (1") above the eyes and ears. However, we suggest measuring at a few points both above and below that line to determine the greatest measurement before referring to our size tables. We also suggest testing the fit of a helmet one size smaller and one size larger then what the chart recommends. No helmet can provide protection if it's too uncomfortable to wear. If you would like further detailed instructions on how to determine your correct size please look at our AFX Helmet Fitting Guide.

Was worried buying a helmet online, for I have a large head which makes buying a helmet hard- this was easy to order with the size chart and video - perfect fit very lightweight on the head also - with plenty of ventilation-would definitely recommend to fellow bikers and will keep in mind when needing other products
Great Price Helmet fits a little tight but wearable.
I was very impressed with this helmet. The size was perfect and the delivery was prompt.
Nice helmet. Good looking and a good value for the buck. Bought it for my daughter who rides with me from time to time.
I purchased two of these for my fiance and myself in high visibility yellow. I went two sizes above the suggestion for me and one for her. They fit well and have exceptional quality. I feel like I got more than my money's worth from AFX. Thanks Jafrum for great product's and service.
Very impressed, for the price cant beat it!
Good quality-great price-quick delivery!
Have been riding dirt bikes for over 30 years with the same open face helmet. I just went street save to save gas and in the first week cut off 3 times by old ladies and socker moms driving mini vans. Looking to upgrade personal protection gear,motorcycle dealers very costly. After searching web JAFRUMS the best for after market apparel. Bought AFX FX 90 helmet. Fits great,looks good and it didn't empty my pocket. Take your time with the measurement and you should end up great fit. Very pleased with the product and will be shopping with this company again.
Good helmet, good fit, great price. Not many solid color helmets available at such a good price. Thanks for the prompt delivery as well.
This is an amazing helmet for the money. The fit is good & the noise level is low. I don't get that wind noise. It looks great also.
Amazing for the price. Sizing was accurate for me.
Bought this for my son. It's fairly stylish. He likes it and it fits good. Features are nice. Good buy for the price.
I bought this helmet for my Grandson and he really likes it. This helmet is of great quality and it was priced just right. The inside padding and face shield were of great quality too. It has everything a helmet should be with an affordable price. We chose the red wine color and it is very sharp. I highly recommend this product in any color. I am definitely thinking about purchasing another helmet for my other grandson.
Great Helmet, Good price and fast delivery. ahead of schedule. I am completely satisfied.
This is a great value helmet. I'm an entry-level rider, and need basic protection that's easy on the pocketbook. My Father, a 30 year rider, was equally impressed with this helmet's combination of features, quality, and affordable price. It's comfortable and well vented.
Nice helmet for the price. According to the chart I was a Large but I ordered XL and the fit is perfect. Nice product
really happy with the helment didnt think i was going to get such a good helmet 4 the dollars i spent. thanks to all 4 an outstanding product and service
There is no such thing as an entry level helmet. Your head doesn't get more resilient to asphalt the longer you've been riding, so your needs, as far as protection is concerned, don't change. Bonking your head is bonking your head. I prefer instead to classify helmets relative to the helmet, not the rider. The AFX FX-90 is a very basic value priced helmet. While it shouldn't be classified as entry level, its price does make it a good choice for a rider who is unsure if they are going to like motorcycling, and doesn't want to spend a whole bunch of money to find out.
This helmet is DOT and ECE approved and features a relatively light weight poly alloy shell that contributes to the FX-90's three and a quarter pound weight. It is available in sizes extra small thru two X but the fitment chart is a little off on the site so here goes. First of all, this FX-90 has a very round head form. If you have a real long oval head shape like I do, this probably isn't going to the best lid for you. Next, they run small. Not snug so much as really small. I have a twenty three and a half inch head which puts me in a medium as per the size chart. This is an XL and it's still a little snug on my forehead. Remember, though, I have a long oval head shape. Regardless, I would go no less than one size larger than the fitment chart recommends for your head measurement.
The features on the FX-90 are about what you would expect. Everything works, there are just some helmets that work better. The ventilation is ample. The vents are direct port, so there is no channeling in the EPS, but the vents are numerous, so the helmet stays pretty cool. Where the helmet shows its price is the shield. The optics are decent, but the gasket leaks and the side plates are pretty tough to work with. It's important to remember, though, to compare apples to apples. Compared to other helmets in this price range, the FX-90 is right on par with most of the competition, and a good value over all.
