Has anyone used Akuma helmets?

Has anyone tried one of these? The reviews I have read are great and it got webbike reviews(or whatever that website is) helmet of the year.

These folks liked it!

Sorry, they lost all credibility with me when they put LED's in it. I'm not usually a "name brand" guy, but I've never found a helmet that fits better than my Arai so I stick with them.

"Helmets certified to the ECE 22.05 standard are approved for competition events by AMA, CCS, FIM, Formula-USA and WERA and are chosen by nearly every professional motorcycle racers competing in world championship road racing, motocross and off road events, including the ultimate sport of Moto GP. Helmets that are certified to both DOT and ECE 22.05 offer the highest level of realistic protection with the added benefit of light weight for day-long comfort and rider performance. "

Yes!!!!!! I have one and I just talked to the lady from there company. They are from here in san antonio. I have the werewolf helmet, got it a while back. The helmets they have seem pretty nice and the lady, Tess, I talked to to get my smoke shield was very nice. I like trying different things so thats why I bought the helmet and I like the fit.

I dont care for the leds but they have an on off switch so if you dont like them you dont have to use them. I think it would be good for visibility at night but I dont care for them. I just like the graphics and the review spoke very highly of them.

I tried arai and didnt like it.
