Anyone have a Sparx Helmet

I found this helmet online called SparX and was wondering if anyone here has used one. From what I can tell seems to be a good helmet and reasonably priced. Plus is comes in this cool Hornet design.

Thanks hasbeen, I had a chance to try 1 on at the local dealer and it was very lightweight, (alot lighter then my Scorpion EXO 400) and it fit very comfortably. They only had them in plain black tho, so I went ahead and ordered the hornet 1 online.

Yes. I have a Sparx. Wore it on my ride to Idaho. So far it is a great helmet. The scorpion chin piece fits in there with a little bit of elbow greese, but it fits. If I remember the story from web bike world correctly, it was a group that broke off from KBC because they thought they could make better helmets. I have had mine since August and have worn it for oyer 2500 miles. No complaints yet. Ranks 25 on WBW's helmet weight list. 1 being the lightest. They eyebrow vents work nicely too. If you have a helmet comm setup in there (yes it will fit) you can here a slight whistle if you have the chin vent open.
