I have been using a full face Typhoon helmet with electric shield that this new model replaced. I think they made some nice improvements like frameless shield and quick buckle instead of D-rings. The helmet fits and feels very comfortable but the distance between the heater lines on the electric shield is only 2 1/2 inches compared to 3 inches on my old Typhoon helmet. It is very annoying to look into those lines. This is a deal breaker for me so I gave it only 3 stars and think I will return it. If they would have kept a wider viewing space I would have given it 5 stars. It would be just fine if you can get by with the non electric shield.
