Gmax helmet - April 13, 2009, 05:19 PM

For my birthday I got a Gmax helmet.

This sweet little thing cost about $120 at Coleman's Woodbridge. I'd been eyeballing it since last year, but I couldn't justify the expense. That's what birthdays are for, right?

This thing came with two visors, a red LED light for when I get caught out after dark, it is lightweight, and doesn't press on my ears like my old HJC.

What do you all think of this helmet?

Looks high-tech. I've heard good reviews about Gmax. Is it comfortable? I've never liked the feel of HJC's.

It's very comfortable. For comparison, I tried on a Shoei. They seemed to weigh the same and fit similarly, but the Shoei used a softer padding fabric. Otherwise, they seemed comparable to my head! But the price tags differed.

The open ear-spaces created an interesting problem. Normally I ride with these $40 Sony ear-plugging earphones which block ambient noise so well I can turn the sound WAY down and still hear it. These fall out of my ears when I wear the G-max. I've taken my worthless iPod earphones and slid them into the ear pockets in the helmet (like in-helmet speakers) and put foamies (cut in half) into my ears to reduce noise. Crank up the volume and I get a similar effect as my Sonys AND it's legal.
