Would buy it again. I ride with full face protection most of the time, but live in a desert, so having a cooler option is great. Good fit, but a little tight around the ears with the speakers in. But once it breaks in a little more, I don't think that'll be a problem. The Hi-Viz yellow is a great safety feature. car drivers start out, but immediately stop once they spot me...

AFX FX-50 Helmet Sizing
HOW TO DETERMINE YOUR CORRECT AFX HELMET SIZE
1. 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.

Somewhat satisfied. My husband and I both noticed that the front part of the helmet hurts our forehead after wearing for appx. 40 mins. Have to stop and take off & readjust - then can go again. Otherwise fits good.
This helmet seems fine, except that it is loose on the sides and tight on the front of my forehead. It also seems too deep, I need to add a foam liner in the top which will help the fit a little. I may just have an odd shaped head, you would have to try it and decide. Otherwise the features on the helmet seem fine. Nice quick release chin strap, although it is WAY too long. it seems they make this helmet for someone with a tall head, rounded on the sides.
Extremely happy with the service I have received and am very pleased with the product.
Fits perfect and I love the lightness and ventilation. The inner eye sun sheild is fantastic. Delivery was very good. I would buy again and feel very comfortable about it.
At first I was a little skeptical about buying a hemlet online. I really like this helmet. The fit was perfect. It felt good on the expressways. the visor does, however, rattle a bit when riding, but after a short while, you don't notice it anymore. Great fit.
I really like the helmet. The easy release buckle is a bonus over having to thread the strap. The strap is a bit long and flaps unless I tuck it in. I'll have to shorten that. Love the retractable sunshield. Easy to flip down. It could come down a bit lower but that may be due to having an adult XS helmet. True to the sizing chart. I would definitely recommend this helmet.
My old Nolan N41 is almost worn out. The FX50 is almost just like it, but, with more features. Its a light weigt helmet, which I like. I ordered the wine color and its really a deep nice color. Youre gonna like the chin strap. The only draw back, (to me), is that its made for an Asian round shaped head. If you have a European egg shaped head, (like me), the helmet will be a little tight on the forehead. Other than that, its a great helmet for the money.
Very good quality and fit. I like the reflectors on the back for better night time visibility. But the two best features of this helmet are the retractable sun shield and the quick release cam buckle chin strap retention system. Much better than the double D rings. I don't know why more helmet manufacturers don't use this type of system. It is absolutely great and works flawlessly. I bought 2 of these helmets -- one in flat black and one in wine. And Jafrum is absolutely the best motorcycle accesory dealer on the internet. Nothing but praise from me. I won't buy from anyone else.
Pros - love the visor and sun shield, really love the way the chin strap attaches, Good looking helmet. Cons - This helmet seems round shaped and makes for a tight fit on the forehead for a European egg shaped head like mine.
Cool looking helmet! The pull down sun shield is a great feature as well as the clear flip-up shield. Reflectors add a nice touch. Size medium is perfect for head size of 23.
Helmet was delivered quickly and was exactly as described. The finish on the helmet is beautiful and the clear shield is optically correct. I had to touch it to be sure it was down in front of my eyes. The colored eye shield is just as good. It does have a small wind rattle that I'm sure I will locate and fix. I don't know what else anyone would ask for especially for the low cost. Highly recommended.
I love it! The color is bright the chin strap is a very secure, easy on,easy off design. It has reflectors built in. I especially love the second slide down shaded face shield. I can push it down or raise it up while riding, I had to exchange helmets because it was too small. Easily done. Actually the second one was a great fit except for my forehead, it caused a red mark, it was too tight. I used coarse sandpaper to wear down the front a little, maybe 1/4 in. at most, and now if fits great, no red marks. I highly recommend this helmet.
Great Quality and looks good and very confortable.
Bought it for my son. It's very cool so he will wear it. That's what counts.
I own several helmets. This one by far is the most comfortable. Yes, this is my first open face helmet, but needless to say, it is very comfy. The sun visor is also a plus. And the value, it was truly a plus. I wear this helmet more times than the others. Did I mention that it comfortable.
Wanted something that I could wear with my dual sport, but didn't want to go with the standard dirt helmet. Like the options.
Great fit, and others can see me. Order was fast and product was great.
My third AFX helmet and I love them all. Can't beat the quality and value
Very good quality, comfortable fit. I also have an older Shoei full face and I feel just as well protected with the AFX. THe High Vis color has stopped cars dead in their tracks as they were starting to pull out onto the street in front of me, It seems to make a big difference, other drivers can really spot you. There is a slider knob on top that allows rasing and lowering of tinted inner visor ,and the clear outer full face visor can be pushed way up away from your face and will stay in position.
