AFX Helmets info...

I'm curious to see if any one has used or purchased and used the AFX helmets? More specifically the Dual Sport model listed as FX-37DS.

They are not real expensive and so then goes the theory of spending large amounts of money on the protection of your head. I was just wondering what people think of these. This is the style I would really like to have. The Arai helmets are $500 plus in this style and I say no thanks to the price. All comments welcome. Sound off!

Here is info I found on it:

Looks like there is another thread going on about the same thing.

Thread is up in the General V-Strom Discussion.
