Figured I'd throw this out there for your reading pleasure. My short review
Rode in the X-14 finally this past weekend. First off, the compliments of how nice the helmet looks just don't stop from other riders. I threw on all the pieces the helmet came with, the breath guard, under chin cover, and chin deflector. Very quiet experience, no wind noise this way, cars and my exhaust noise all limited, however it felt hot, like i was not getting much air. Granted, i probably didn't open up all the air vents since I'm not fully familiar with the right open direction for all of them, but I did have the one open that defogs the glass and it did do the job in a 50 degree weather. When I stopped, I pulled out the chin cover and I felt a lot of air. At that point you do hear more road noise and at high speed, you get the wind noise just passing you by. Reason i say passing you by is that my head was so stable, it was like cruising speed limit past a school zone. Even though I was on the highway going fast, the helmet definitely blew me away here. I sped up above C-note numbers and still no head wobble or anything. I've been through a ton of helmets, all of which were no more than $400 in price tags. I'm sure there are good helmets out there beside all the ones (6 helmets aside from x-14) I have in my garage, but none of the ones I've ridden handle/feel the way x-14 felt going triple digits on the clock.
Hope this helps anyone thinking of getting X-14 or is stuck between this and the RF-1200 like I was. Also, I would definitely recommend going for the Transitions visor. So convenient to just have one shield that does it all.... Can't even understand why all the helmet manufacturers don't do this.
BTW, everyone should be buying from Mike. If you're not, you're just wasting your time. Best service you will ever find.
