* The helmet has great build quality. The inside chin guard area shows that with the plastic cover on the inside. The typical dirt bike helmet would just simply have the inside of the shell. I hear it creak a little when i grab the helmet by that spot but not that bad and doesn't feel like it will break or crush in. I also like how I can open or close the mouth vent there. I also like how the back bottom of the helmet is very flush and clean looking with the bottom back of the inside liner. It's tough to explain and I couldn't get a picture because there is reflector material there as well.

* If you don't like the Bilt logo on the helmet it is under the clear coat so don't expect to remove them easily. I don't think they look bad and at least the logo is simple and not flashy.

* Very little helmet lift at 60 MPH if any. You can notice the visor if you turn your head at 60 MPH but it isn't too bad.

* Some what poor ventilation. It works, but doesn't give a lot of ventilation. I could see this helmet being hot in the summer in Florida by only using the ventilation. Fall time it feels great. I don't get too much air under the chin guard which is a bonus for cool weather riding. I can increase the airflow a lot by simply cracking the visor which is how I will make it comfortable in the summer.

I rode in the fog the other day. I couldn't keep the inside from fogging then even with the shield cracked open. That might be pretty extreme conditions. In the heat of the day zero fogging. In the cool mornings only fogging if stopped, but it some what quickly clears up and it all clears up as soon as you start moving.

* The built in sun visor doesn't fog at all. That is a huge one for me. I had a IS-16 with the built in sun visor and couldn't stand when it kept fogging. The sun visor only has 2 positions, up or down. It was a little sticky at first and wasn't very easy to make it go up or down. I just put a drop of silicon oil just at the top of the switch so it would drip down under it and that solved that problem right up. It functions very smoothly now.

* Haven't tried dirt bike goggles on the helmet but I think they will fit as long as the shield is up.

* I have a large round head just under 24" and the XL fits me perfect. Just a little snug but no chipmunk cheeks and should break in to a good fit.

* I'm very happy with this helmet and would buy it again with out a doubt.

This is the 2nd part of my review on my helmet. It has been 8 months and almost 4k miles. You can now tell why the helmet is so cheap (worth the price if you need a cheap helmet but if you can afford it go for something nicer). The pads have started to break in to the point where it now moves around on my head on the highway this really pisses me off >_<. Its very noisy which is what happens when you get the great air flow it has. The visor is only in clear and the pop down one isnt dark(I live in FL) I also noticed it has a scratch from putting the visor up and it hitting the top part of the helmet. The little piece on the end of the bolted on the top of the front piece of the helmet the bolts came out and it flew off while I was riding(now light shines in and blinds me from time to time. It does buffet a bit but if you keep your head down and order a size to small for when the pads start to get word its not to bad.

Good size, its cheap it looks really awesome and you can buy visors from the Speed and Strength helmet because its the same thing (except better made from the looks of it). If you have about a hundred extra buy the speed and strength duel sport or some other company completely. It does a good job at protecting your head but in a year you will want to throw it away. Its one of those things where its cool for so long then its just not anymore lol.

    Comments about BILT Explorer Adventure Helmet:

    This helmet is a very good value at its sale price. The hi-vis yellow is great for the every day commute, it fits true to size around my head but is slightly tight on the ears. Peripheral vision is very good, no squeaks or rattles, vents work well & overall good looking in my opinion. A little heavy & slightly wind noisy only when compared to the higher end stuff at a way higher price. No regrets with this purchase, not much more I can ask for!

      Usually use an Xl. Tried this in 2XL. This product is much narrower in chin area than all other brands I've used. They do not make a 3XL. If you have a round chin area you may need a different choice.
