I am satisfied with the fit and look of this helmet, as I don't need any equipment inside. I like that the chin piece folds completely back, which makes it easy to put on. I hope I never have to find out how sturdy the shell is, but it does have certifications. My only complaint is the strap fastener. I have fastened my helmet to my cycle by the D rings for years. This one has no D rings, and therefore no way to secure it to the cycle when I'm in a store etc.

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.

My wife loves it I liked the fit and finish of hers I'm going to order myself one this week.
I like the helmet and especially the inside sun shield. It's nice the clear shield goes up and all the way back so no need to take it off if you don't use it, so does the chin bar. Great pherpheral view. Great bang for the buck.
I really like this helmet. I ordered a medium and it was a bit tight at first, but is breaking in nicely. The modular design is perfect for me because I wear glasses and don't have to take them off to put the helmet on. The drop down sun shield works very well, with great coverage. I have another helmet with a drop down shield that doesn't quite drop down far enough. Ventilation is good, but I haven't had it for any real hot weather yet. I live in Florida, so warm weather is coming. I had to take a run on the Florida turnpike today and found the helmet to be real good at higher speeds- no buffeting to speak of, and quieter than other helmets I own. It seems the more round design helps with wind flow around the helmet- sort of more like your head, just much bigger. The modular design works really well. The flip up chin bar is smooth, and easy to operate, even with gloves on. I have been wearing heavy winter gloves the last couple of days and the operation is still real easy. I had tried another modular helmet a year or so back and did not like it at all. It seemed clunky and cheap, and hard to operate. I can recommend this helmet, if you are looking for a good, lower cost modular helmet.
They arrived in a few days and are just fine. Remember these are very inexpensive helmets for all the features. Just a word of caution, I needed to install J&M headsets in these and THERE IS NOT ENOUGH ROOM between the inside of the helmet and my ears for the speakers, so I had to highly modify (Dremmel Tool) the inside liner to make a recessed round hole for those speakers in both sides of both helmets. Other brands have enough space and need not be cut on so just know this if you are going to want speakers. I also had to drill holes for the mic mount instead of clamping them as on previous helmets. Otherwise happy. BUT the folks at Jafrum were wonderful and will buy from them again.
I was initially drawn to this helmet by the price. Took a chance and ordered for both my wife and me. Supremely happy! Size chart was right on. As others have mentioned, this helmet is light on the head. This is very important to me because of a medical condition I have in my neck. I've already been on several long rides and have experienced much less neck discomfort than I had previously with my Nolan 3/4 helmet (that weighs more than this AFX). Construction quality is great. Easily mounted my Harley headsets.
Lighter than my old Nolan, XL fits my head well but the cheek pads a too tight. Think going to 2XL would make fit too loose. May look into getting the 2XL replacement cheek pads. Disappointed to see it is made in China. Prefer made in America products.
I have received many compliments on my new helmet. Other bikers have told me they have never seen a "pure orange" helmet before, and are asking where I got it. I chose the color for safety/visibility. It fits well, has three open/close air vents, and cuts engine noise significantly when face shield is down. The sun shade flips up and down with one hand using a slide button on the outside of the helmet. This is a real plus; I can put it down or back up without pulling over, which is very nice when the sun comes and goes with varying cloud movements. I have to take my glasses off before putting the helmet on and before taking it off. But, I guess that is normal for any full face helmet.
I have trouble getting a helmet to fit my round head that fits all around without tight spots
this is one that fits and i can wear for long rides, it gets a little heavy after a few hours but is still comfortable, i ride in fl and it gets hot here, there is good airflow and my head stays cool. The sun visor works very well, there is plenty of room for the speakers in the helmet as well. The delivery was prompt and was well packed. I would recommend this helmet if you have a round head like i do.
This is a fantastic helmet....Love it. It fits well, the quick relese strap is fantastic....a little long but easily trimmed. You will not be made purchasing this helmet!
I love this helmet. This is the first helmet of three I've tried that does not feel like the wind is trying to suck it off my head! It fits great, it feels great, LOVE the padded chin strap and the quick release buckle. The strap was a lot too long so I adjusted it and cut off about 4 inches then took a lighter to the ends, looks factory now. I love the venting and the sunshield. All in all, just another great purchase from Jafrum.
Just picked this one up to replace my GMax54 (which I melted..don't ask! lol) there are some pros and cons to the helmet. Pros: great value, quietest in its class!, nice air flow, snug fit, but feels secure. Con's: make sure you buy another inner sheild, the one that comes with the helmet is not optically correct and using both shield will make your eyes go gaga! Now the replacement inner shield is better optic's then what comes with the helmet. It's a really snug fit. All in all for the amount I paid, I got a good deal and this is a great 2nd helmet to have... the folding part of the modular part is great (no more scrapping it against the pipes by the ceiling in my garage. This helmet is surprisingly lightweight an as I mentioned before it's the quietest one I own ( I have a G-Max 54 modular & 68 full face as well as an HJC CL15) The color I ordered is the neon green to go with my hi-vis jackets but the actual color is a brite yellow. For the cost this is a good helmet!
This is a very comfortable helmet. The flip up chin bar allows me to keep my glasses on when putting on or taking off the helmet. I really like the built in flip down sun shield.
I own 10 helmets including Nolan, Bell Star, VOX &nd several other brands. Been riding since the 60s. Tried many brands of helms over the years. This is the BEST! quietest ( except for a half hem ) on the market & it has the same type of quick connect/relaese as the $400 Norlan and ski boots. And, an added safety feature which allows face to fip to the back of hem so you don't break your neck if you ride under a tree with face open. However, sizes run on the small side, I had to exchange 1st one as it was way too tight. I recommend getting one size bigger than factory chart for a comfy fit which is not too tight to cause a head ache. If you plan to wear a Dew Rag measure your head with it on as Dew Rags significantly increase the circumfrence of your head.
I purchased this helmet on sale at the end of last winter with the intent on using it in December to escort Santa to Brooke Army Medical Center as I have for the last 7 years. It sat in my garage in the box for over 9 months as I normally wear ½ or ¾ helmets. When I removed it from the box the glue on the inside padding had separated from the helmet. Guess the Texas heat got to it but that was easily repaired. All the bells and whistles work great. The modular design, especially being able to move it all the way back, is outstanding. But there are some annoyances. When the shield is up or even cracked more than and a inch there is turbulence that causes somewhat blurred vision. I had to check this multiple times to verify I wasn’t going crazy and the helmet does fit me very snug. Also when completely closed up I find it nosier than I would like. Other than these minus this helmet is a great value. I have use it this winter much more than I expect and left my ¾ helmet on the shelve on colder days. For the price it has exceeded expectations.
I bought this helmet several months back from Jafrum. I like the service of the guys in Jafrum however I wont say the same for the helmet. Firstly, after opening the box I notice the chin curtain was not fitted correctly but I ignored it. The 1st time I used it the chin curtain sort of cut my face, the used a pvc material that is somewhat those used to attach liners to shell of helmets.It was bent and snaps to chin bar, I notice the curtain could have been wrong size for the helmet as it was long then then it should hence it was bent when snapped in. I was deeply disappointed with the clear shield as well, no matter how I clean it, it doesn't seem to get cleaned properly. The dark internal also got it's problem. Once both shields are down it sort of distort the view
The helmet looks great, I ordered by going with with size chart, but had to 're-order a larger size. The first order arrived fast, the second one took longer (I don't know why). But other than the delivery delay, I am pleased with this purchase. I bought the Hi Viz Orange, looks good and I hope it helps with keeping me safer on the road.
