I chose the SS with Red Maelstrom graphics. The overall construction quality is good. The paint is smooth, glossy and I did not notice any imperfections. The SS helmet feels light. Visor and vents open and close and operate smoothly. The rear diffuser looks good and is well integrated. I selected a Medium size and it fits well. The helmet profile is longer than normal and the opening seems a little narrow. The padding and liner quality is very nice, the removable liner held in place with Velcro fits well and stays in place.
The helmet includes a nicely made drawstring bag bearing the Fulmer logo, for protection while you aren't wearing the helmet.
The SS helmet has a sport oriented fit and aerodynamic shape. I rode sportbikes and standards with the Fulmer SS helmet, and didn't feel out of place. The side profile is a little longer than my other helmet, and I noticed a little more side pressure when looking to the side while riding at freeway speeds.
I found the SS comfortable to wear for extended periods. The SS helmet should fit the bill for any street application.
There was a noticeable “whistle” at freeway speeds when turning your head to the side, which seemed to be more pronounced with a cross-wind. Overall, wind noise (without hearing protection) was acceptable for short trips even at freeway speed. Of course, prudence dictates that hearing protection should be worn at all times when riding a motorcycle.
Vision is unrestricted with excellent peripheral vision. The visor quality is excellent—crystal clear and and distortion-free.
The SS is an attractive helmet with performance styling, quality fit and finish, and good functionality at a very reasonable price. The SS offers good value, and it's a great option for riders on a budget or beginners worried about damaging a more expensive helmet while gaining experience.
There are three graphics choices (in a variety of colors) and 5 solid colors available. You should have no trouble finding a color and pattern to complement your motorcycle no matter what you ride.
