Graphics look nice, but I wouldn't trust a $139 helmet to protect my head.

I'm gonna have to agree with Chris on this one, and Bell helmets said it best back in the day, "if you have a $10 head, buy a $10 dollar helmet" looks nice, but I wonder about $139 helmets.

Confusing the issue, since before you were ugly.

Back from the dead!

I needed a helmet to race my car on the 1/4 @ MIR, so I bought the cheapest one I could find (which happened to be AFX for about $80). POS! Sometimes the lid would get stuck in the closed position and I couldn't open it up, and the padding (if that's what they want to call it) inside is scary.

I would strongly advise anyone shopping for a helmet to stay away from this brand.
