Perhaps recreated for the SuperMoto craze, the XD shines during, exploration-oriented off-road riding in good conditions. Although the shield seals well, some dust will sneak in on a dry dirt ride, and if you're doing a lot of slow, technical stuff, the shield does fog despite an adjustment on the chin vent that directs oncoming air up at the visor's interior. If you're chasing fire roads, however, or even carving single tracks at a decent clip, you'll love this helmet. To expand its range of capabilities, just remove the peak or the visor. For example, you simply don't want to set off on a ride at prolonged highway speeds with the motovisor on, so just remove it from the mounts (simple screws to remove both peak or visor use a coin or driver) and slip it in your pack. Or, for a day of crazy roosting, lose the shield and slap your goggles on instead.
