Before writing this review I checked myself; did not want it to sound "too good to be true". To each their own, but this is the best helmet I've ever had.
The fantastic price I paid aside, my concerns about fit were laid to rest when it arrived sooner than expected, and slipped like an old lover onto my big head. My previous helmet, a ($400+) didn't fit/feel well as this. It is light, and the shape cuts down on any high speed head buffeting. The venting is great, the front flips up with one-finger ease. The small lever for the interior shaded visor took me just a couple rides to be able to find without thinking and operating it isn't hard. Padding inside curved around me just right. Got the flat black. Love it. Thanks Jafrum.

Vega Stealth Helmet Sizing
Helmet Sizing Information.
To achieve proper helmet fitment, begin by finding your head circumference size using the method described below. Remember that the helmet sizing you choose should fit around the crown of your head comfortably with no pressure points. The cheekpads should fit firmly around your face. Once your chin strap is fastened, grab the chin bar of the helmet and move it side to side. Your cheeks should move with the helmet, which should not slide across your face. Different thickness cheekpads can be purchased to obtain the perfect fit.
Head Measurement Instructions.
Wrap flexible tape measure around your head approximately on inch above eyebrows and ears. Use this measurement (in either inches or centimeters) to find your helmet size in the chart below.
|2XS||-||20.08 - 20.47||51-52|
|XS||6-5/8 - 6-3/4|
|S||6-7/8 - 7|

Seems to be a great buy!! Haven't worn it out on the bike yet, but it seems to be everything I was expecting!!
Great helmet I bought two.
I got the helmet in a couple of weeks, when I expected a month (at least) because it's crossing the border. When I did get it, the parcel was light, so I thought they sent the wrong helmet. It's exactly the size and color I ordered, love the fit and LOVE the venting. I've worn it around the house a couple of times (my neighbors are used to me), but haven't had it on the bike yet. All around a good deal and great transaction.
Just received helmet and have not tried it out yet BUT it has all of the features one would want in a modular helmet. It appears to be well made and looks very nice. I already own a Vega Summit 3 modular helmet and this is an improved version of the Summit model in my opinion. The reason for the 4 Stars verses 5 Stars is because at this point some of features seem quite stiff (i.e. - drop down internal sun shield controls). If you are interested in modular helmets this one deserves a look at.
This helmet appears to be well made and is what I had expected when I ordered it. There is only one drawback that I can see at this point. It is going to take some creative thinking to mount a Harley Davidson headset in it. I do not want to spend more for a bluetooth headset than the helmet cost so the only solution is mounting a headset that I already possess.
The helmet runs small. I initially ordered a 2x when my measurements call for an xL. The helmet was still to small so I called customer service. The video online also shows a spring release sun visor which my helmet did not have. Customer service was quick to send me a postage paid label via email and I just received my replacement about a week later. I still don't have the spring release but no big deal and I have the larger helmet without having to pay for return shipping. You really can't complain for the price of this helmet. Spring release would've been nice but not worth sending this one back too. I can't wait for it to warm up to try this helmet on road. I would've gave 5 star if I got my spring release.
This is an awesome helmet. Looks good and very comfortable. The color matched my bike perfectly. I purchased a bluetooth headset and was able to install it quickly. I don't really care for the smoked lens mechanism, it is difficult to lower completely with just one hand. Other than that it is a great buy. Would purchase again.
You can't beat the price for this helmet. Followed the measurement instructions and was right at the edge of the large. Went to the XL perfect fit. As for the wind noise I would rate that as mild to moderate. I'm quite happy with my purchase.
Great helmet. Bought one for myself and one for the wife. Mine was missing the chin flap called Jafrum on a Monday morning received it Thursday. Great company to deal with. Excellent customer service. Will be buying more items from them in the future.
Seems like a great helmet. Sizing was spot on. Only problem is that I wear glasses and the drop down sun visor hit my glasses so I had to return it. Guess I'll have to continue with my prescription sunglasses.
Awesome product. All features work as advertised and it is not as noisy as most modular helmets
The only reason I gave this helmet four stars instead of five is that it runs a little on the small side. I initially purchased this helmet to replace the open face helmet due to the amount of noise that I've been dealing with. I ordered a 3xl and really should have ordered at least a 4xl (which they don't have in this model). Luckily, my wife needed a helmet and it fit her beautifully. She's quite happy with the ventilation, the fit, and the features this helmet offers. It really is a great helmet, I just wish they made one in my size.
This is a great helmet for the price. I purchased one for me to see how it was. I was so impressed I bought another one for my girlfriend. Great quality, not too heavy, all functions work as advertised, and a lot of vents for adequate airflow. As good as helmets that cost two or three times as much. I would highly recommend.
I've used the Stealth Vertice helmet for 14 months. All helmets loosen up. This one loosened up to the point it is now too large. Make sure it fits really snugly when you first get it. Wind noise started out Loud and got LOUDER. Even with vents closed you get a fair amount of wind in the face. I had to bend/reshape the chin bar latches after it kept getting stuck closed. It's a really huge (outside diameter) helmet. Now the good; Comfortable, Doesn't feel too heavy, Drop down sun visor is great, Price, DOT certified so hopefully will protect the head in a crash, hope not to find out. If you're on a budget and you can get this helmet really cheap go ahead and buy it.
This is the second Vega helmet I have bought. This one is head and shoulders above the first one. Based on my experience with that one, I went into this purchase with some skepticism. Boy, was I wrong! Jafrum delivered it quickly as usual. The fit was right on according to the sizing chart. The finish was better than I expected. The first ride brought out a couple of flaws but I think they are minor and you will have to be your own judge. The noise level is much less than my other helmet. As I always ride with earplugs, the noise levels are acceptable. The helmet does not feel heavy at all. Slightly heavier than the other. The two issues I don't particularly like are the direction of the sun screen shade lever, seems like it should be the opposite, and the main screen lift ridge is dead center instead of to the sides. The quality of the helmet far exceeds the price point.
I have always had problems with full face helmets fogging up the face shield in the winter. This helmet never fogged once on my first test ride. The design of the product is very nice looking and the ease of using the inner smoke shield is commendable.
The only problem I had was the sizing chart. I followed their guide and ordered a large, although it is workable, it feels a bit snug especially since I wear glasses when I ride.
Helmet is attractive and light, finishes look sharp and it's very easy to put on with glasses. There were some quality issues, particularly with the chin curtain which was flapping out of position right out of the box. Helmet is very light, but once on it is so light it has a cheap feeling, like it may not protect well. In the end I decided to return and chose a Scorpion EX-900X instead.
I don't have a big budget, but I know better than buying cheap when it comes to helmets. So when the Stealth went on sale, I bought one! At full price, it's still less expensive than the high end modular helmets, but at almost half off, it's worth looking at. The helmet is larger than my old full face, probably because of the modular design and the padding, and is, more comfortable because of it. It is definitely heavier than a regular FF, but with my windshield, it was bearable on a 3 hour ride. The mechanisms for the vents, the sun shade, and the flip up chin are easily operated with gloves with a little memorizing of their locations, and all seem well constructed and sturdy. The sun shade was a real pleasure as the sun started to set, and I was able to flip it up and down as the shadows from the trees gave way to the blinding sun where fields and lakes broke the cover. The chin has a flap that seems to prevent the winds from rushing up your face, and I found it to be an excellent winter helmet with the vents shut. I can't say the helmet was noisier than any other helmet. I am very pleased with the quality of this helmet, as well as Jafrum's prices and quick shipping. Thank you, Jafrum!
The helmet is great.
Hope this helps.
