Excellent helmet for the price - even at normal retail. On sale, it's a great deal. With the mirrored visor and the internal sunshade, the tint is just about right for daytime riding in bright Georgia sunshine. The tint for either one is a little lighter than I would prefer, but together there is flexibility I wouldn't have with either one being darker. The helmet is a little more noisy than the my soon to be retired Nitro Racing helmet, but strangely, when worn with earplugs the Bilt Speed is quieter than the one it is replacing (with earplugs in too). It is over 5oz lighter than my other helmet - which should reduce fatigue on long rides, and so far, it fits a little better - without any tight/hot spots.

Perhaps a better helmet for passenger!

Noise: Wore this helmet for the first time on a ride from Sacto to Lake Berryessa. Turned out the driveway onto the street and the first thing I noticed was how noisy it was even at 40mph...with the shield down! Noise increase triple-fold at freeway speeds, so ear buds are crucial.

Sun Screen: Good concept but I'm wondering if Bilt actually let riders test them because the internal sun shield works great but allows air to come underneath and will make your eyes water heavily. How could they not see that during the design phase?! Using sun glasses instead of sheild worked way better for me.

Main Shield: Works as well as any but it has the tendency to slam shut on it's own if you're going freeway speeds. Scared me to death first time it happened. Perhaps that's a built safety feature from Bilt? I've only had the helmet 2 days and it has done it multiple times. Plus the shield itself is a bit more like flimsy plastic than my other helmet shields, so I'm hoping it can withstand heavy impact like my other ones.

Air Pump: Works like a charm, however, I don't see the use for yet. Maybe when the cheek pads wear down a bit and the helmet becomes a little loose. Now it would be nice be able to have the air pump work up by the ear area to cut down the noise issue. Just sayin.

Overall, I think it's a pretty decent helment for the price. I would add that it would probably be a better helmet for a passenger instead of the rider due to the item mentioned above (noise, air flow, shield). Isn't this suppose to be the top of line model?!

    Comments about Speed Air Pump Full-Face Motorcycle Helmet:

    I really enjoy having the built-in color shield.
    I hesitated ordering a helmet because I have a BIG head (2XX)
    but this helmet fits well, and I'm very pleased.
    No fogging in the rain, and we get LOTS of rain here.

        Comments about Speed Air Pump Full-Face Motorcycle Helmet:

        I just bought this helmet yesterday. My first helmet was a Fulmer, so that is the baseline that I am comparing to. I wore it for about 2 hours on the way home from the store, all on the interstate, and so far it performs equally as good as the Fulmer, but with the added benefits of the internal sun visor and pump system. It was quite windy (to the point of the bike leaning), but with the pump, I was able to keep the helmet comfortably snug and it didn't move when changing lanes and checking blind spots. I have seen others complain about wind noise, but I haven't found it any worse than the Fulmer. Others have suggested a chin strap that helps reduce noise so I may try that but I don't think it absolutely needed personally. It feels well built, and is not too heavy to cause neck soreness. This helmet looks great! For the price, I simply could not pass it up. I'm taking a cross country trip soon, so it will get a hard workout very soon. I will try and do a followup review when I get back since this helmet is still very new to me. so far, it has performed well and I have nothing to complain about. in addition to the five year warranty and the seven day no questions return policy, this should shape up to be a good helmet.

        Unbelievable value! It out performs my Arai Corsair in nearly every area and has a couple features that are awesome. The pop down tint lens is priceless. Also, the pump up cheek pads are great. When turning head the lateral wind deflection is reduced considerably. Bought one and two months later bought another..........outstanding deal.

            I use this helmet every time I ride. It's fairly comfortable and not too heavy. The pump is just an awesome feature and the additional sun visor is the best.
