Gmax GM67 Helmet Review
Gmax GM78 Helmet Review at Competition Accessories
Hey guys this is reuben with competition accessories. We are taking a look at the gmax gm 67. This helmet sells for 69.99 for a 3/4 shell helmet. This is a great bang for your buck .It has a thermoplastic alloy shell and is DOT approved. It has a lot of venting options on this helmet. There are two intake air vents in the front that operate on slider switches that make it easy to operate with gloves on. You also have exhaust vents in the rear and additional vents in the bottom. There are also static vents near the base of the helmet that assist with air ventalation. Basically when you ride warm air comes over top of the helmet and vents out the rear. It allows to keep your head cool during hot weather time riding. You can also close the vents during colder weather riding. One thing people also love about this helmet, it has an internal dropdown sun shield visor. The visor is tinted and has an anti-fog coating for riding in different kinds of conditions. For example, if you are riding during daytime use, you can have the shield in the downward position for better eye protection. During nighttime riding or riding through a tunnel, you can easily riase up the visor for better visibility. This helmet also comes equip with a visor peak, it allows for an open face feel for this helmet. If you find yourself on longer rides or different riding climates, you can lift the visor out of the way. If you choose to remove the visor peak, there are two small tabs located on the side of the helmet. It is difficult to see on camera, but are easy to locate on the helmet. On the video, once the visor peak is removed, the tabs on the sides of the helmet are easy to locate. This helmet also comes with a clear face shield. For installation, line up the tabs with the clear face shield on the sides of the helmet. Slide the tabs back into the forward position to lock the faceshield back into place. Make sure that both tabs are done on the same side to safely fasten the helmet into the correct position. No tools are required for this easy faceshield change. Now you have a 3/4 helmet with a full face shield. You can also use the dropdown internal sunvisor for additional coverage. If you look closely at the helmet, you will see there is a spot for an optional chin bar coverage. Just remove the two tabs on the chin bar and you will see the two chin bar slots. You can purchase the chin bar separately and install them in a matter of seconds.This will provide additional coverage if you so desire to have this option. Moving onto the interior of the helmet, Gmax lines this helmet with COOLMAX material. Coolmax material is a moisture wicking material that draws moisture away from the skin and keeps you comfortable for hot weather riding. The interior is also fully removable, which after extensive riding makes for easy washing. One nice feature about the cheek pads is that they do come installed with speaker pads for a communication ready helmet. I am go ahead and remvoing the rest of the liner to show you how the ventaliation works. Just a few snaps to remove out the crown liner. As you notice, they do offer a generous amount of mesh inside of the liner to work in conjuction with the ventalation system. Looking at the EPS liner, you will notice plenty of holes for the ventalatin system. This is to maximize the air flow in the helmet. This will provide a cool flow feeling on your neck and skin. Again this helmet is called the Gmax GM67 Open face helmet. well priced at under 70.00, this is a great helmet for the money. You can check these out on our website www.compacc.com. We will see you next time.
Hey whats up guys this is Reuben with Competition Accessories and welcome to our video review of the Gmax GM78 and the GM78s which is the same helmet but with more accessories for you snow guys. Looking at the one here in front of me this is called the fire-strike graphic and we have the GM78 available in multiple different graphics and colors, you can jump on our website to check those out. Bang for the buck you get a lot of features compared to some other brand of helmets in the same price range. The street version of this helmet is under a 150 bucks. You can jump on there and check out all our current prices for this helmet. The snow version which comes with a little bit more accessories is a little more expensive. First things first ventilation on this helmet, you get a ton of vents, most of them are closeable. You have a chin vent here you can open and close with a simple slider. Thats going to direct air up and onto the face shield to keep your vision clear and give you some good air flow. You have intake vents at the top here again you can open and close these. On the back of the helmet you have some exhaust vents that are also closeable. A lot of other helmets out there are made to leave their rear vents open all the time, so thats nice you can close the four vents up if you want to. On the bottom of the helmet you do have some static ports and these are always open. Now one thing that is really unique to Gmax is they incorporate this rear light. You have three modes you can cycle between. The first mode is always on, the second mode is going to be a slow blink, and the option is a rapid blink. That is really going to help keep you visible especially at night you dont want to get rear ended or for people not to see you, you can leave that flashing and people are definitely see you coming. You can also link this up with your brakes and they have a wifi kit that links it wireless to your brakes/brake switch on your bike. This will actually light up when you hit the brakes and obviously with a helmet that is a high place to have a light shine and hopefully it will get drivers to notice you. Now the shell of the GM78 is a light weight polycarbonate shell, in fact if I throw it on the scale here I say light weight compare to other polycarbonate shells with the internal drop down sun visor, but it is still 3.95 lbs. For a helmet under 200 dollars its definitely a great value. You have a UV protected shield here, it is easy to open and close. You also have an internal drop down sun visor. There is a slider at the top here you can slide back and forth to deploy or retract the sun visor. Nice convenient location easy to operate especially with gloves on. Be careful, you dont want to be too rough with this because it is a thin plastic that pushes the shield to pull up or down, but it drops the shield down nice and low and you can see its actually down far enough so its not in your line of sight, a lot of times they don't drop down far enough and that can kind of be in your vision. This comes down far enough that its not in your way and it is not hitting your nose either. Also it is far enough forward so if you wear glasses you will still be able to have them on while the visor is deployed. Now you have a rubber breathe deflector here as well. That is going to help keep your breathe off the faceshield again helping it not to fog. The internal visor that is drop down is also coated with an anti-fog coating. You can remove the interior on the Gmax helmets. There are a few snaps on the cheek pads and speaker pockets if you are going to run a communication system. You can remove the interior real quick and easy. If you ever need to swap out cheek pads or something like just cleaning the helmet up you can easily pull the internal pads out and clean it up. You can see the crown liner has quite a bit of mesh material on it as well, thats going to allow all that venting built in the helmet to actually reach your skin and keep you comfortable. Looking at the interior here you can see that the EPS liner which is that white foam throughout the helmet here. That is what is going to absorb impact in a crash so if you go down the poly carbonate shell is going to spread the impact over the broadest area of the shell/helmet. The internal liner is going to takeover and crush or absorb the impact so your head doesn't have too. Also it has all the ventilation holes so when you are riding that air has somewhere to go inside the helmet and throughout the helmet out the back. You can see they have a little bit of foam in here as well so your head is not hitting up against that, and the rest of the foam is built in the crown liner to keep you comfortable. I wanted to quickly show you the snow version helmet that we have here. For you guys riding snowmobiles or riding in really cold conditions wear fog on the face shield is an issue the snow version actually comes with an electric heated shield. It comes with the power leads you will need to hook up to your sleds battery. You have your port here on the side and you can see it is a dual pane shield. This insulates from the inside to the outside so your not having fogging issues. He external shield here is anti scratch coated so your going to get a lot of useful life out of this shield. Another thing you will notice is there is this really large breathe deflector built in on this helmet. You can remove this easily and then it has a nice comfortable foam padding that will sit right on your nose so its not uncomfortable. That is really going to do a good job keeping your nose and breathe away from the shield, along with keeping you warm and preventing more fogging issues. On the bottom you have a removable chin curtain and that will seal up the base of the helmet a little bit better so your not getting cold air coming up in the helmet. This helmet also has the drop down internal visor. Check the GM78 and the GM78 snow version on our website at Competition Accessories is an unbelievable value for what you get.

Brake light - Lettieehn CA
Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
Pros: I love the brake light on my helmet it is so neat and works really good.
The light lets people know I am stopping so they don't hit me on my bike.
Great Idea to Add a Brake Light - Matt B
Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
Pros: Great Idea, Better Visibility, Works Great
This is a great idea I feel safer knowing that I can be seen better at night and during the day. Only wish the light was brighter so it could be seen better during the day. Also wish just the light was sold separately. I have 2 GMax helmets and wanted both to have the light synced to the brakes but I didn't need a second brake light kit because you can sync 2 helmet lights to one brake light kit.
Great Feature - Roger
Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
Pros: Easy to install, low price
This was a great upgrade to the basic light unit in my GM54 helmet....very easy install, just make sure you know what each of the 3 lines coming off your brake llight are ...tiny splice, attach the included wire crimps, I zip-tied it to a bracket under the seat of my 650r, entire install about 15 minute's. And it works.....Install the light unit into your helmet and now you are ready to ride, safetly at night People are impressed and it does catch that stray drivers eye As always FANTASTIC prices , fast shipping. Great addition for an already great idea
Nifty device for the price - Steve AR
Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
Cons: Not bright enough, installation may have you going to church to ask forgiveness
I have a love-hate relationship with this piece. First, don't bother reading the instructions. You'll have just as much success looking at the factory installed light and seeing how to remove it and install the identical looking replacement. It's straight forward enough.The problem is the two tiny screws that hold it in the helmet. You will need a jewelers screwdriver phillips. The screws are recessed with access thru very small openings. They come out easily enough, although getting them all the way out of the opening can be tough. That is your first clue that re-installing them will be a challenge. Getting the two screws thru the opening is not difficult. But then, they fall into a cavernous space that allows them to twist and turn in every direction but into the threaded holes. It will try your patience. One of mine went in on the second attempt. The other one fought me every step of the way. Stop. Have a cold drink. You'll feel like you need a beer, but alcohol won't help your dexterity. Then try again. It will eventually fall into the hole and you'll wonder why it didn't happen 45 minutes ago.Now, to the installation of the sending module. Where are the instructions Oh, there aren't any. Just enough to tell you which wire is ground and which one goes to the brake light wire. Now you're on your own. The unit is small and can mount almost anywhere on a big touring bike. That might not be the case on a sport bike. You need a small place within a few inches of a brake light wiring harness. Obviously, they don't know what kind of bike you are putting this on. So, they can't tell you where the harness is, what color of wire to look for, or anything else. You either need a wiring diagram of your bike, or a voltmeter and the knowledge to use it. Once you find the brake light wire and ground, splice into those wires with the included taps. Now where is the double sided tape or Velcro to secure the module. Once again, Oh, that's not included. You've got to be kidding me. A one inch square pice of double sided tape is not included OK, never mind, I'm sure I have some laying around here somewhere.Now it's installed. Let's try it. Hey, look at that. It really works. Just like the stock light, it only has two little LED's. Easily seen at night. In the daytime, not so much. But, it was less that 30 bucks, so it's probably with it.

Recommended by Reviewer: No
Pros: Like the concept and the added visiblity they would add
Cons: Can' get them to work with bike brakes
Followed instructions and tried the brakes and guess what no light on helmet, installation instructions really weak and provide no guide to help. I hat a lot of detail but no trouble shooting provided at all.
