I cheaped out and bought a Shark a decade or so ago, wasn't overly impressed but I kept it just in case they go up in value like old iPods or tamagotchi. I bought a $5 tamagotchi in 2003 from a flea market, can't find it for love nor money now. I could have retired on it.

It's written on the back, a big M.
You missed that didn't you :p
Well, I try not to just look at the pictures and before I asked I read the text 2 times and there was no mention of the size. I watched the RevZilla review intro and they do mention shell size and I little about the cheek pads.

I wasn't impressed with the drop down visor, never used it, used polarized sunglasses instead. Of course that type are useless on the rr, you can't see the friggin instruments.

I have the Shoei GT AIR and it also has the drop down visor. That is the method of engagement that RevZilla refers to as not so great a way of the visor coming down. It does work fine however on the Shoei. I have 3 of the helmets.

I often ride with the visor up, at slow speeds. Sunglasses hug your face and the airflow even at 60K can be enough to make eyes water but the sunglasses protect from this. That drop-down visor design allowed way too much airflow over my eyes, it was in this regard I found it useless.
