Checkout the GMax GM11.  I do not have this helmet but I do have 2 other GMax helmets and like them better than my much more expensive Shoei helmets.  I'm thinking of getting the Blue Snow model for the colder temps as the fogging I get on my Shoei Hornet is the worst.  Anyone have this helmet?

This is an old thread, but I have a gm11 and really like it alot. The shield is completely out of view when raised. I wear bifocals under my googles, which means that my googles are large framed ( Oakley L-Frame ). You can wear googles with the shield up or down. The cheek pads have pockets for speakers. I didn't have any issues getting a Sena smh10 mounted. There are dual-pane ( thermal ) shields available. There is also a winter kit available that includes a larger chin curtain.

The gm11 has a fair amount of vents as well.

The only negative thing I can say, if this is really a negative thing, is that the tinted shield is dark. It works great on the street, but is too dark for riding in the woods.

If anyone has any questions about the gm-11 I'll try to answer them.

I use the GM-11 as well. Don't have any experience with others mentioned but love the G-max version. I wear glasses and absolutely hate goggles. Anyone with this issue should buy one for sure. The helmet has plenty of ventilation and speaker pockets. Mine has the clear shield but wish I had the drop down shades for sure. No complaints at all.

I have the above G-Max, I like the speaker pockets. My favorite is/was my 10 year old Arai XD but its getting worn out.

I do like the new Bell Adventure helmet

This link now leads to nowhere. The review was based on how the helmet WAS, not on what the model has become due to poor quality control practices and inconsistent manufacturing - so it was removed. Always sad to see a company with so much potential crash and burn. Hope they all had helmets on, albeit another brand.

PostSubject: paid over 150.00 .. with regrets...   Tue Apr 14, 2015 6:09 am

i have a 4 yr old shoei hornet .. i find it noisey and would not buy another one. I picked it over the $150.00 fly trekker at the time because of the higher snell safety rating on the shoei.
I find it odd that next to safety... helmets are not required to be noise /DB rated... some really suck.

fwiw, the Fly Trekor got redesigned a bit at some point (I've owned three of the gen 1(?). Was happy enough with them to get fresh ones. I got a new one this year and they're not quite the same. Perhaps a bit quieter. The face shield is different, won't interchange. Plus the ratchet system for the shield is too fragile. Both sides have cracked so the shield won't stay open dddog
I'll be looking at the others mentioned in this thread.

I ended up getting an FX-41 a couple years back to replace my Trekker and really like it. The sun visor is a great plus & airflow is good. About the same amount of wind noise and built very well with removable foam so you can clean it.
