Better than the price.
I recieved this helmet yesterday and i have not ridden with it yet. It does appear to be the same quality or better than my old helmet which cost me much more. The quality of the paint is extremely glossy and the badges and DOT stickers are under the clear coat which is a nice touch. The styling is what stands out and looks very modern, but with out being garish. The drop down sun visor operates smoothly but the handle could be a little larger and beefier. The sun visor doesnt drop down as far as I would like, but maybe while riding it won't be an issue due to leaning forward.

There are some nice details I wasn't expecting for the price. The vents have a fine mesh, which my old helmet lacked. The chin strap has a snap for holding the excess strap once pulled through the d rings. The face shield has a lock, and the quick release works well. Nice stuff!

While taking the helmet on and off, I noticed that the liner around the bottom of the helmet tends to pull out of place. Its easy to tuck it back in, but a minor annoyance. I'm hoping with time the helmet will break-in and that will be less of a problem.

As long as the helmet is quiet while riding, I see no reason to avoid this helmet if you like the "Flight of the Navigator" styling.

PROS: Plenty of vents, Looks Nice, Light Weight, Glossy Paint, Faceshield Quick Release

CONS: Inner Sun Visor Too Small, Liner Comes Out Too Easy

Helmet performs well!
Great helmet for the Arizona Heat, well vented moves a fair amount of air. Fits very well, helmet doesn't move around at higher speeds. Slightly noisey, easy remedy wear ear plugs. Inner drop down tinted shield could be a little longer. Still waiting for additional accessory tinted faceshields, a must with the Arizona sun. Told they would be here by May.

PROS: Well vented

CONS: Inner Shield To Short

Don't over look it because of the price!
I just purchased it today and rode about an hour, air flows great through this helmet. I have a couple of different more expensive helmets that I am not impressed with. I will purchase this again. I hope it's still around when I need another. I didn't find anything negative about it at this time. For the price I suggest giving it a try!

PROS: Looks good, Great Air flow, Comfortable, Great price

Decent helmet
Overall good helmet. Bought this as a first helmet as a beginner rider. Wasn't willing to spend much on a helmet and this helmet is great for the price. My only complaint is that it's noisy at 50+ mph. I also wish they had different windscreens available but I was told they would be coming soon.

PROS: Comfortable, Good features, Design

CONS: Noisy At Highway Speeds, No Windscreens Available

Decent helmet, especially for the price
I bought this helmet as sort of an experiment. My normal price range for a helmet is between $250-$400 but having just lost a bit of weight I found that heads shrink along with the rest of the body and none of my gear fit any longer. Repurchasing all new gear is expensive so I tried some cost cutting measures.

First off, the Bilt helmets are DOT certified which means that they are just as safe as any other helmet with DOT certification so I was not worried about safety. It is well known that more money normally gets you more bells & Whistles; better venting, removable padding, etc.

The documentation that comes with the helmet leaves a lot to be desired. My first question had to do with whether the padding was removable for washing so I looked at the paperwork that came with the helmet. The paperwork was very generic and basically said that if the helmet came with removable padding that it could be removed, otherwise it could not. No help at all.

I ended up checking the CycleGear website which stated the Raptor had removable padding so I took a chance and just started popping pieces out. Thankfully, the padding really is removable.

The next thing that I would like to have seen covered by some instructions that came with the helmet was how to remove the faceshield. A big deal was made of the easily removable faceshield but I had no idea how to do it. I eventually figured it out but come on, how hard would it be to put in some instructions?

I was told at the store that this helmet would be noisy due to the shell construction. After a bit of wear I can confirm that it is not a quiet helmet. However the Raptor is no louder than my last helmet which was 3 times the price I paid for this, in fact it is probably a bit quieter.

I like to have a smoked shield on my helmets, I actually prefer the mirrored shield. Being in Arizona, clear shields put a lot of heat on my face, the mirrored faceshield makes the helmet much cooler in the sun. I was very pleased to find the mirrored faceshield for this helmet was $17 and in stock at my local Cycle Gear; I paid upwards for $60 for the last mirrored faceshield I bought from another manufacturer's helmet.

The internal sunshield. I think it should be called the infernal sunshield on this helmet. I've had two other helmets which had an added sunshield built in, one was internal and one was external. Reviews of both those other helmets all said the sunshields did not come down far enough to be useful but I found them to be just fine. This is not the case with the Raptor. I don't think the problem is that the sunshield doesn't come down far enough, it seems more like the nose slot is too wide. Regardless, use of the internal sunshield was maddening and it actually interferred with my vision. Add in the fact that I found the lever to use the sunshield to be hard to find when riding with gloves on and I think this is an addition that would have been better left off the helmet. Thank goodness for cheap tinted faceshields and easy installation!

So far I find this helmet to be quite comfortable. At this price, the padding may not last forever but I don't expect it to. I must have a Bilt shaped head as there are no pressure points or other fit issues.

I've found build quality to be quite good. The snaps for the removable liner hold tight and all the trim pieces are hanging on there. One thing I hate about Bilt helmets is the silver painted trim pieces such as the vent housings. I'm sure this is so that the helmet can be manufactured as cheaply as possible but that silver makes it look like it was built as cheaply as possible.

So where does that leave me? Am I satisfied with this helmet?

The answer is that I am satisfied with this purchase. The helmet was quite cheap at under $100 but I find the fit/finish and comfort to be quite nice. Will it hold up in the long run? I don't know, but for the price I paid, I could buy another one easily. Will some of the cheapness begin to drive me a little nuts? Possibly, but once I have saved up my pennies I can buy something a little nicer.

PROS: Cost Of Accessories, Cost

CONS: Noisy

I will buy more bilt products,
i cant find anything wrong with this helmet. it is very comfortable and the style draws attention. the built in sun visor is my favorite feature. the other feature that is very helpful is the nose piece that keeps my face shield from fogging.

PROS: Comfortable, Style, Well priced, Well built

Great Helmet
First full face helmet that I purchased. I have nothing to compare it to, but overall I am very please with this helmet. I wear it mostly when riding in cold weather and it helps greatly with this.. I am pleased with it.

After a month review!
This is still a great helmet! It lets a lot of air flow through it. That being said, cold air rides, I need a skirt around the neck to keep out some of the air even when the vents are closed! The little chin skirt that is on it is not enough for that. It feels great in the heat of the day though, that air flow helps keep me cool while riding! It has its pros and cons but I still like it.

Good helmet
I just got this today and I really like it. I replaced my HJC symax 3. That was a modular and kinda heavy and pretty loud. This is quieter and lighter. However, In my last 2 helmets I was a medium and I am a small in this. so it might run a little big.

PROS: Comfortable, Quiet

CONS: No Dark Sheild, No Dark Shield
