I have one. Overall its nice, but find it incredibly loud! so loud that I had never needed ear plugs before on any helmet but need them on this one else I suffer from major fatigue.

Like DynaMight said,it's a very nice helmet but super loud! Ear plugs a must. Mine has become louder over time. Shield is very easy to change & medium seems just alittle larger than a medium Shoei. It's also lightweight but doesn't flow much air.

They are light, safe, and do run about 1/3~1/2 size big. You almost have to try it on to see if that works for you. But they have good shields, are light, and safe. Pretty good value if it works for your head. I wear ear plugs over 55, so I can't comment on noise.

Im runnin one now and I only have one complaint. If im on the freeway and need to turn my head more than 90 degrees, my shield sometimes opens. Do any of you other guys have this problem? Otherwise the helmet is an all around good quality helmet!

I use a 1st ed. Shark RSR. Sharks move a lot of air. Good for keeping your head cool, horrible for noise attenuation. Earplugs are a must for anything above riding at 40mph. Size wise, the head shell is a bit larger than say Arai or Shoei. Maybe about 1/3 larger.

All this doesn't sound like a ringing (ear ringing?) endorsement of the Shark, does it? Frankly, I'm not much for "off" brands of helmets, and I'm a big Shoei X-11 fan after years of happy RF-1000 use. Just sayin'.....
