Good helmet for the money
I recently bought this helmet because I needed a modular for making it easier to get though security at a military base. Overall it feels like a good quality helmet for the price. I would say the weight is actually on the light side for a modular. My size medium weights in at 1727 grams. The vents in the helmet don't seem to provide much air flow. This helmet is pretty quite for a modular. I think it's more quiet then my carbon fiber Joe Rocket full face. On my commute home today I had to ride through a pretty good rain shower on my entire 25 mile commute. The helmet didn't leak any water in at all. And the shield stayed completely fog free. And I'd say its one of the more comfortable helmets I've ever owned. Overall I'd say this is a pretty good helmet for the price and would recommend it. I'm giving 4 stars because of the lack of air flow with the vents open.

Fantastic for a Modular
Was originally going to go with the Apollo, but after trying on the Evolution, it was by far the better way to go (for us, anyway) The Apollo's fit was good, but the Evolution is perfect! Just did a 500 mile round trip with them, and it went GREAT!! Didn't even BRING our halfies this time! Aerodynamic design of the shell makes the wind flow smoothly around. Modulars are notorious for more wind noise than a full face. This one has some - but VERY little. No buffeting at highway speed at all. No 'pull back' when you turn your head either. (I do ride behind a windscreen though...) Drop down [smoke tint] visor had a bit of a hazy view in direct sunlight, but maybe it just needed to be wiped down; not sure. Main clear visor is optically perfect. No blurry effects anywhere you look through it. Very impressed. Better still, the wifey likes it!! If you're looking for a true fit, comfortable modular with great features, (like the drop down sun shade...) go get yourself one of these! My brother liked the fit well enough to go get two for he and his wife. Finally have helmets that will make our limited freeway rides more enjoyable! Good Job Bilt!!

Good helmet, good value, get 2 (I did)
TL:DR - Good value, noisy with top vent open, comfortable

I got this because I was on a budget and in a hurry - it was inexpensive and immediately available. I purchased in store, having had a wide range of experience with S/M/L sizing and helmets before. (I have comfortably worn everything from an M to XXL depending on brand and style.)

This helmet in an XL fit comfortably. (My last hemlet was an HJC-CL size L.) Decent padding with out "squishing" my cheeks. The chin strap is a bit close to my throat, but that may be as much due to the modular design as anything else. I have worn the helmet for just over an hour continuously (my longest ride so far hasn't been very long) and the chin strap was noticeable but not a problem for the entire ride.

The biggest negative I have noticed so far (in ~3.5 hours of total use) is the wind noise. With the top vent open and at speeds over 40MPH, it is very loud. Closing the top vent cuts the noise by about half. But it also makes the helmet quite a bit less cool. Opening the windscreen a notch resolves the cooling issue with considerably less noise.

I don't notice any significant difference in air flow, noise, or cooling with the chin vent closed or open.

The built-in sun visor is the best feature overall. Although I would suggest the visor be a couple millimeters longer to eliminate the slight gap in coverage at the lower edge of the visor above the chin bar. I noticed the light leaking in through this gap, especially reflecting off my bike; most noticeably when trying to read the instruments.

Overall, the helmet is comfortable. I have not had any neck or head fatigue. It fogs pretty quickly at a stop if you leave the visor closed or in first open position, but clears just as quickly when you start moving. The chin bar opens easily with one hand and closes with a satisfying thunk. Vents and visor controls are well placed and easy to manipulate while in motion with one (gloved) hand.

I wanted a matching helmet for my wife, and this style/brand worked for her as well. (This is not as easy as it sounds, because our heads are shaped differently. :) ) She also tried on in store, and was able to find a size that fit her comfortably. So I bought 2!

I purchased this on sale, so the price was terrific. At full retail, I would suggest another brand. But at the <50% sale price, this is a terrific value for the features and comfort.

Nice for the money
Loaded with features, love the modular aspects. Not sure if it was just my alien shaped head, but every time I took it off the front inside padding became dislodged - and the inside upper rubber air deflector with it so I had to return it. By all means try it on in the store. Overall, though, a lot of helmet for the money.

Ken
Very comfortable helmet but seems slightly tight for recommended size, I went one size larger and it fits very well. Helmet is moderately loud at speed and earplugs are recommended to minimize wind noise. Airflow through vents is minimal but visor is easily opened for additional flow. In this price range ( bought on sale ) this is a great buy.

Bilt evolution helmet
Went on a 300 mile ride with this helmet today and i loved it. Of course I expect a little noise but it performed better than expected. Everything worked. The airflow isn't the greatest but overall seems to work great.

Biggest bang for the buck
I shopped many modular helmets and found this to be the best value ($110). I was attracted to it first by it's unique and stylish appearance, secondly by its fit (a custom helmet couldn't fit any better) and lastly by its price. After wearing it for 157 miles, I'm very impressed by how comfortable and quiet it is, and by its solid feel.
The chin bar latch is cleverly designed so that a single upward push both unlatches it and opens the chin bar. The face shield can be set at almost any partial opening (including a small crack) for more ventillation or defogging. The face shield latch is substantial, easily deployed by a gloved hand, and not in line with the lower air vent (so the rider won't confuse them). The sun visor is easily deployed. The chin bar has a substantial closure grip for gloved hands.
The lower air vent is adequate, but I agree that the upper vent doesn't flow much air. I would have preferred a safety yellow color had it been available. As it is, I've ordered a safety yellow decal kit, and a quick release chin strap.
I look forward to many happy miles in this helmet, and hope I can buy another one in safety yellow in five years.

What does it weigh compared to no modular.?
A shopper on Oct 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: the weight is noticeably more than non modular helmets. if extra weight for a modular is not worth the extra function a modular gives you....don't get a modular. i have heard complaints about the wind noise too, but my last helmet was noisy and it wasn't modular so my own experience isn't very helpful here.
Does this helmet have speaker cutouts for Bluetooth com speakers?
