I took a couple of rides on my sport bike during the cold weather and I was immediately confronted with the limitations of the Pilot Helmet. No face protection and lot's of wind noise. The clear visor worked well and the internal dark visor was very nice although slightly hard to deploy since the knob to work it is behind the ear flap. Nice light helmet and really shines for the purpose I actually purchased it and that is to wear during cold weather rides on my recumbent bicycle. Since you I only ride at speeds 14-20 mph the protection proved satisfactory and warm. The problem of wind noise on the motorcycle was of no consequence. As a matter of fact being able to hear on the bicycle is helpful for safety reasons.

Have you noticed the website only shows the side view. Looks cool right...when I pulled the helmet out of the box I thought it looked great. I put it on, looked at my wife and she bursted out in laughter. It is soo fricken round, you look like you just put a fishbowl over your head. Kazoo/ Marvin the Martian. However it fits good, love the sun visor, and cooler to wear during hot summer. Just can't past the fishbowl look.

    Comments about Pilot Open-Face Motorcycle Helmet:

    I read comments about how noisy this helmet is, but I usually wear little beanie helmets or a half helmet so wind noise nothng compared to those. I like the shaded inner visor but wish it could be just a shade darker for my taste. Fot the price, you won't find a better helmet. I will probably go back and get a spare for me and one for my wife.

        Comments about Pilot Open-Face Motorcycle Helmet:

        First of all I must say for the money this is a great .75 helmet. I especially like the sun visor however the lever needs some refining as I don't think it will last many more miles and the placement is terrible. The asymmetric shape of this helmet also helps reduce wind buffeting at highway speeds. I bought this as my first helmet and was very happy with it in the beginning however as my needs changed over my first month of riding I found it inadequate. My main gripe with this helmet is the placement of the sun visor lever and the fact that the shell does not extend all the way to the bottom most part of the helmet. If you intend to buy a Cardo Scala G9 plan on putting it on another helmet. I am unsure of compatibility with other blue tooth intercom systems but I can tell you that space is limited if not non-existent on your clutch-hand side. All in all without the extra pesky technology the helmet is fine.
