How is the helmet at higher speeds?
A shopper on Oct 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This helmet is great at any speed...I've been at eighty MPH with no problems at all. Some people have complained about a rattling when you turn your head. I found this problem and a quick fix. Put small cabinet door bumper under tips of sun shield...no more rattling! I love this helmet...I have two.
I'm confused by answers to the face shield question. One user says the clear face shield and inner sun screen can both flip up or down. The staff answer says the shield is fixed - either down or removed. Which one is it? Being able to flip the outer face shield up is a critical buying factor for me.
Glenn S on Mar 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Glenn, my wife and i both have the AFX FX-50 helmet. There are 2 shields on this helmet, the clear outer shield flips up, tucking underneath the visor. There is a secondary inner shield that is smoked that is stowed in the layers if the shell that flips down acting as a sunshield, a button on the side of the helmet actuates the sunshield. Both shields can be used at the same time. The helemet is a great helmet for those hot days when you want a little more airflow.
Does the face shield flip up or is it fixed??
Rich on May 21, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The "sun shield" is fixed, the face screen or "visor" (clear) and tinted sun screen can both be either extended (down) or retracted (up) independently or together. The sun shield can be removed.
Can the face shield be removed on this helmet ? Thanks Richard
buster on Mar 22, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Yes the faceshield can be removed, and AFX offers 3 colored shields as an upgrade. Light Smoke, Dark Smoke, Silver mirror, aswell as a replacement clear. The drop down shield is also replaceable in case of scratches. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you by contacting us by email at [email protected], Live Chat or by phone toll free at 888-339-3888. We are more than happy to help.
We are looking at the AFX FX50 helmet. Can a J&M Elite 629 Series helmet headset be used with this helmet? We are wondering about the space at the base of the helmet for the mike and wiring clamp. Thanks!
null on May 3, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! If you got the J&M headset for open face helmets, it will work on the fx-50.

Terrible for Low Sun Conditions - Corrected by this Hack
Not really a bad helmet. Overlooked was the ability to ride into a low sun with the clear face shield up. The shield, when retracted, interferes with your ability to angle your head low enough as to allow the sun visor to be of use. You end up looking through the clear shield at a sharp angle which distorts road vision. I added opaque static cling to make the exposed part of the retracted shield a working visor which does not interfere with road vision when the shield is down. Also, would it have killed them to add a permanent D ring so the helmet could be hung from concealed seat hooks?

WOW ! Great Item
Just received my Birthday present. Fantastic helmet for the price. Great free shipping. Ordered 2/13, received 2/17 Cal to Ohio marvelous.

Wanted a helmet with sun visor and ventilation. This helmet met those requirements plus. Very happy so far. Now just need some warm weather so I can go riding and really check it out. Sizing charts don't agree. Bike Bandit chart shows XLG helmet with max size of 24 inches. AFX shows Large with 24 in as max size. Ordered XLG and glad I did. If I'd ordered a Large, it would have never fit. So, be advised order a size up.

Love the helmet so far, and just waiting to get the Triumph out and warm the tire up.

Outstanding helmet
Got the FX-50 after reading reviews on several helmets. Ordered medium as head size was at top end, but not in large range. Fit was a bit snug at first, but feels great after a couple days wearing it. Really like the shields. The face shield does retract if you want, as well as the inner one. Helmet is light and looks great. Love the quick disconnect chin strap!

Great Helmet
I got this particular helmet due to its good looks and reviews. The view from the helmet is flawless no distortions at all with the shield down. Wind noise is not bad at all and I can still hear what I need to. The helmet is rather light and does not strain my neck when on long rides. However, there is one slight issue, I followed the measurment chart and bought accordingly, I should have followed my instincts. the helmet is too small for me so I am going to give it to my wife. I strongly suggest going up at least one size from what the chart says. Other than that I HAVE NO COMPLAINTS AT ALL!!!!

AFX FX-50 Open Face Motorcycle Helmet
Like it because it lets me use glasses while I am riding. Sun shade is convenient for glare without having to stop and use sunglasses. Still has clearance for my glasses with sun shade down. Good visibility and ventilation. Side reflectors for safety. Good overall design and comfortable!
