I've been riding with this helmet for almost 2 years, and so far I've few issues with it.

Pros:
Price/value - helmet has features matching other brands that cost hundreds more (sunshield, vents, comfortable padding, noseguard, front chin netting and wind flange around base).
Weight - this helmet isn't all that heavy, and as such doesn't cause sore neck after a 500-mile+ ride day.
Compatible with third-party bluetooth headsets - installing a Scala Rider set was fairly simple, and hasn't presented any problems in 1.5 years of use.

Cons:
Sunshield doesn't come down quite far enough, so you have to tilt the helmet forward to keep your vision from being bisected by the edge of the shield.
Noseguard tends to rub the tip of my nose.
Helmet has a lot of wind noise at highway speeds.
Vents don't seem to pull that much air through - in other helmets I can feel the 'draft' when I open the vents up, with this one I can't.
Sunshield has some optical distortion, which takes some getting used to at first.

I'd buy this helmet again, or an upgraded model.

So returned the Zero Bluetooth for this helmet and got the mirrored screen to go with it. Helmet is pretty comfortable. Shields change out pretty easy. The sun visor that drops down doesn't go down far enough, but what a great idea! With it down I see double of the visor outline...hold your finger between your eyes close to your nose and you will see what I am talking about. It does vent good....too good. With the shield down and doing 50 mph on my 3 mile commute to work, my eyes were watering and was hard to see. Why even have the shield down if it's like having it up??? Took this back to the store after riding a total of about 12 miles. Not real happy with the "100% Satisfaction" policy they have. Nowhere does it state that the policy is for everything EXCEPT helmets. It does not say that the helmets are strictly under the 7 day exchange policy. It does state that if you are not 100% satisfied that you can return and get your money back or an exchange. The store informed me of this and thus I was forced to order yet another helmet in hopes of liking it. Wish there were more options in the store to try on. Would like to try on some of the Bell or HJC helmets that I see online. The guys in the store are very helpful with the items they have there to work with. Guess I will have to keep trying helmets till i find one that I like within 7 days at a time. The bad thing is that I will more than likely have to wait another 7 days between each helmet while it is ordered. Doesn't make sense though that the website can get it to me in 3 days but have to wait up to 7 for the store to get it.

      Comments about BILT Chicane Full-Face Motorcycle Helmet:

      This helmet fits great & looks nice. The flip down tinted sun glasses are great for those sunny days without having to try to fit your regular sunglasses inside your helmet. It serves as a dual purpose too as you can leave your clear face shield on for when the day long festivities go into the night. You don't have to ride with your face shield flipped up.

      Comments about BILT Chicane Full-Face Motorcycle Helmet:

      So I went against my past decision to not buy any more Bilt products. After looking at the other helmets in the store, I looked at this lid. It had all the features I wanted plus the colors & graphics match my bike well. It's DOT & ECE22-05 rated just like helmets costing 5x as much. I like that it has the internal sunshade. The faceshield changes pretty easily. It fits my noggin well & the padding seems good. The vents are difficult to operate with gloves on but I usually leave vents open anyway. Truthfully, it's been to cold to ride much but so far I'm happy with it.

      Comments about BILT Chicane Full-Face Motorcycle Helmet:

      Bought based on sale price. I run a Maemphis Shade Pop Top (low profile) screen. For a full face helmet with a windscreen, it still generates wind noise. For most riders, including me, it's not enough to change my decision for use. In fact it's really the only negative. Love the interchangeability and availability of different helmet visors.
