Fantastic helmet with loaded with features. The vents work well and Ireally like the dual visor. I can raise the face shield and lower the sunvisor. I recommend this helmet to anyone looking for comfort and save a few bucks.

John B S. from Harrisville, NY:
Glad I used size chart.Shipping is fast. Like the inner shield but should be a bit larger or taller, seems it should come down to your nose. Chin guard needs to be shut firmly so it latches closed. just a couple small issues. I like the helmet, you have many ways to wear or use it

ERIC S. from York Haven, PA:
This is my second Hawk helmet. After the company stood behind its product recall and fully refunded the cost of my previous Hawk helmet, I couldn't help but purchase another. The cost of the helmet is very good considering the high quality. Other Chinese-made helmets do not have the fit and finish of Hawk helmets. The modular design is hard to beat. One problem I've always had with helmets is the ability to comfortably wear glasses. First, with the built in shade, you don't need to wear sunglasses. Secondly, if you do have to wear glasses the ample room around the ears makes wearing spectacles reasonable. The airflow through this helmet is amazingly good. So much so, that it actually doesn't provide much protection against the cold. Even with the vents shut, my ears got cold on a <40'F morning. On the positive side, the benefit of good airflow is reduced fogging. The wind noise is not unreasonable for a modular helmet. One feature that I miss on this helmet is the easy on/off clasp on the previous model. This model has a tried-and-true d-ring closure. The fit is accurate as well. The overall shape is very round, necessitated by the full opening of the modular design. I'm not sure how often I'll use the helmet as a 3/4, which is specifically discouraged in the enclosed directions. I only wish it was available in white when I purchased mine. I would certainly recommend this as a good purchase.

Philip M. from West Simsbury, CT:
I bought this as a gift for my son. His head measured at the top end of the medium range and the helmet fits but was really snug when new. It has loosened up some with use and will kepp him from growing his hair too long. Aside from that he likes the helmet especially how well it is ventalated. Great price and quick shipping from leatherup we are very satified costomers.

Joseph W. from Pahrump, NV:
This is my second Hawk modular helmet. This one fits tighter than the previous one. I use it in off road desert riding and the flip up front is very handy when I stop because I am able to get a drink of water without taking my helmet off each time. The finish is good, good padding, effective vents. Very good price for the quality. I don't use the dark sunglass visor because it interferes with my glasses. I would recommend this helmet

rick b. from NOLENSVILLE, TN:
A really terrific helmet for the money. Lots of great features and a comfortable, secure fit. It is sweet looking and after just doing a 1000 mile trip with it I can say it passed all tests with flying colors. My only complaint would be the clarity of the tinted visor. It is a bit distorted. That being said, all else is super nice. Leather Up is a great company with products that reflect excellent value. I have always been happy with my purchases.

These helmets are so much better than the ones that the front visor will not unlock and raise. They are just so more convenient. The color and graphic on this helmet work together for a very classy overall look.

Nice fit, great look, BUT......with both visors down there is a wind whistle above 30 mph. Top of outer visor does not touch seal strip. The noise is too annoying to contend with.

Scott M. from LEES SUMMIT, MO:
Like every thing about these helmets. Over all my only wish is to have more color selection and perhaps bluetooth integration. The 'flip all the way over' face shield option while still having the sun shade is fantastic. Also, there is room in the helmet for glasses/goggles for those who find the sunshade as either insufficient coverage or insufficient darkness of the sunshade.

Jay H. from Rio Rancho, NM:
One of the reasons I bought this helment was for the retractable sun visor. It turns out the visor is so distorted as to be unusable because of the distraction caused by that distortion. There is also excessive wind noise caused by a gap between the top of the face shield and the helment. Otherwise, it is a comfortable helment and I like the flip up face guard feature, which works very nicely.

This is a very good helmet, it is qiute, comfortable and my uclear sounds realy good. But Leather did not sent any care or operation manual. So I called but they were not very concerned about it. If this was my first helmet I would not know what to use to clean the face shield or sun visor or how to replace the face sheild.

Harry P. from Beaver Falls, PA:
I order a medium and found the weight to be close to 6 pounds. The manufacturer clearly states that it is not to be worn in the open postion. I found with it all the way back you feel the pull from the weight on the back of your head and you would still need good gasses or goggles because the wind come under the tinted visor and into your eyes. My head measured 22 1/2 and the medium was a perfect fit. The locking device is plastic and I am not sure how that would hold up when needed or how long it would last if you wear the helmet all the time. The air flow through the vents is really good. I did get a whistle sound when I tilted my head down but that and the wind noise was not too bad. Overall I would recommend this helmet. For the price I don't think you can beat it!

This helmet is the best helmet I have ever purchased. From the 180 degree flip face shield to the button on the chin strap to keep it from flapping in the wind and the drop down sun shield, awesome (old school expression)! I will suggest that all my peeps check out your web site. Thanks!!!

Tom W. from Norman, OK:
I wear eyeglasses and behing the ear hearing aids. The helmet works fine with the glasses but I could not wear the hearing aid with the helmet. The wind in my face was less with this helmet than with my 1/2 face helmet with sun visor. I ordered one size larger than normal and it fit loosely. I find myself cruising 10-20 mpn faster when I wear this helmet. I did disassemble the visor. It took a while to reassemble w/o instructions. The manufacturer reccomends closing the visor when in use. I agree. The helmet offers little protection if used with the visor in the up position. Don't disasseble the helmet

Chirstopher P. from EL PASO, TX:
This is my second HAWK helmet. My first being the Hawk 6607 Bluetooth helmet. I like this helmet much better than the Bluetooth helmet (except for the lack of Bluetooth). This helmet has better construction and definitely better ventilation and internal padding. This helmet is quieter and more comfortable than the 6607. I wish that this helmet came in a Bluetooth version. This helmet with Bluetooth would be a superior product to the 6607 which has lousy ventilation. The quick release strap on the 6607 would also be a good improvement over the "D" ring that this helmet has. Living in the desert southwest ventilation is extremely important. Having a light colored helmet also helps to keep the temp down when riding in the summer. I really love the way the chin bar flips all the way back it makes the helmet much more comfortable to ride open faced. HAWK: make a bluetooth version of this helmet and make it available in more colors (white would be nice), put a quick release strap on it and you will have a home run!

Charles T. from FAYETTEVILLE, GA:
I liked the styling, but some distortion in the clear shield and lots of distortion in the interior visor spoiled it quite a bit. Mine also came with a chip broken from the control tab for the chin bar. Leatherup does have return risk, as they don't allow the return if you wore it and found out how poor the interior visor is.

Robert F. from Fresno, CA:
Previous Hawk modular I had was size XL, I might have been more comfortable in a XXL for the Transition. I had to modifiy the ear cup area to get my JM Elete speakers in. Cup was not deep enough so I routed them out about 1/4 inch......might not have had to do this if I had ordered an XXL. Mike mount did not enterfere wth the activation lever for the inside visor.

Cole K. from CROFTON, MD:
I have been on two trips with this helmet, both days were warm but not hot(80's). Ventilation was really good, and noise was not too bad with the visor closed, or win the openface positions. Found it to be a very light and comfortable helmet. Was concerned because the sunvisor control is located where my scala ride rmounts but it fit with no problem and works fine. Took advise of others and ordered one size larger and worked well. Overall much more than I expected from an inexpensive helmet. Thanks Leather-Up for proving customer satisfaction means something. Good value for the money.

H. T. M. from EL MIRAGE, AZ:
Typical oflow price helmets with flaws that is unacceptable. 1. clear face shield don't fit snugly causing wind noise and leakage. 2. inner shield don't go down far enough to be effective in sun shielding, you'll see reflection off the gas tank and the chrome trimming. 3. inner liner is poorly fitted, exposing the foam cushion. 4. chin strap is improperly located, too far forward to where the strap barely go across the chin when worn correctly. Still, it's a vast improvement from the previous "Advanced Hawk" modular helmet I bought from Leatherup. This one actually fit correctly. You get what you pay for. Nice paint job, good functionality and very effective aerodynamic design.

Robert S. from LAWRENCEVILLE, IL:
helmet sizing is WAY off. I have a 22.25" head, at the bottom of the medium scale. I got the helmet, tried it on and broke a BTE hearing aid getting it off. It was THAT too small. Had to get a Large instead. RMA wasn't a hastle at all, but the replacement box was beat to all heck. Seems Leatherup doesn't keep good care of their stock IMHO. Helmet still has issues, the shade lense is all distorted and foggy on the lower half, not good for seeing, but I dont want to hastle with another return. Tried cleaning it with lense cleaner to no effect, issue is with the plastic itself. Otherwise its a good helmet, I like the full foldback feature of the front face, and the built in shades are a blessing, when they are clear enough to see traffic. Large fit my head firmly, and should be considered a medium in my opinion.
