made by Gmax
Gmax GM78 Solid Helmets are a super affordable full face street helmet with great features and a sporty look that comes in a matte black, gloss titanium or gloss white finish. Larger eyeports improve range of vision, while a new inner flip tin sun lens that adjusts with an exterior lever is coated with the best anit-fog product available today and allows you to leave your sunglasses in your pack, while the outer lens is hard-coated for a longer-lasting clearer view. DOT approved, the Gmax GM78 Solid Helmet is designed with an integrated multi-function red LED rear light with three distinct settings: steady on, slow flash, and rapid flash, that can be upgraded to a wireless function. Removable, washable interior and an adjustable dual exhaust venting system allows hot air to escape for a cooling ride.

    Helmet GMAX - Jeg   SC Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: great value,super fit
    Cons: none

    I bought this helmet prior to a week tour through Arizona and southern Utah. Never had a day when my head was uncomfortable with respect to heat even with daytime highs in the upper 90's.The drop down sun visor was fantastic I would highly recommend this helmet along with the helpful staff at Competition Acessories.

    High feature low cost helmet - Mike in AZ   AZ Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: venting, sun visor, rear light, style, noise reduction
    Cons: sun visor not dark enough, no air conditioning

    I previously owned a GMAX GM68S. It was a nice comfortable helmet with decent venting and had the rear light for night time visiblity. It was noisy enough that I wore ear plugs, but not deafening like my Fly Trekker. It had a bit more room around the temples to better allow for sun glasses, unlike the Trekker which was snapping the arms off sun glasses left and right. I still went through a fair amount of glasses with the GM68S, but not nearly as many as with the Trekker. But still having sweaty steamy foam lined sunglasses against my face was no fun. I purchased the 68S as a close-out and the only one they had in my size was black. Not my first choice as it's not the best for visibility and it just absorbed the Phoenix sun. But for the close-out price I couldn't complain. I recently stumbled while carrying it, and it hit the pavement HARD, bouncing several times, breaking off a vent, cracking the top vent housing, marring the face shield and rendering it pretty much useless. Now I told you all this so I could compare it to my new GM78.I was able to find the 78 in white YAY. That helps with visibility, and doesn't seem to get AS hot as the black helmet, but Phoenix riding is hot regardless. The venting seems to be pretty good so far. At hiway speeds it seems to stay a bit cooler than the 68S. Some one please invent a helmet with AC I ride with the main shield open at speeds up to about 35mph. Faster than that, wind come around the sun visor and bothers my eyes. The sun visor is a really nice feature. It saves money on constanly replacing broken sunglasses, keeps sweaty steamy glasses off my face, and alliviates the hassle of putting them on & off as lighting conditions change. I just wish there was a slightly darker sun visor. It's not quite as dark as my sun glasses, and I'm contemplating getting a smoked main shield to compensate for the blindingly bright Phoenix sun. Although I don't really want to carry a second shield, changing them out on the 78 is really simple and an improvement over the 68S. The 78 has the rear light for night time visibility. I don't care who this is gimmicky with both th 68S and the 78, I've had drivers at stop lights tell me they thought it was cool and it really got their attention, I always set it to fast blink so apparently it's working and helping keep me alive. The 78 is MUCH quieter than my old 68S. Even at hiway speeds, I'm a bit on the fence as to wether or not I still need earplugs. I do still wear them on the hiway, but this helmet is pretty quiet without them.Bottom line This is a good helmet with many nice features at an affordable price. If you live out west, allow time for it to arrive. Unlike Brian in MD, mine took quite a while to arrive. He's a lot closer to them than I am though. Comp Acc does have the best price I could find though, so I take it in stride.

    Price Doesn't Match Quality - Jason in SD   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: stylish, venting, visibility, adequate noise management, rear light, value
    Cons: Sizing is tight, not sold on the mesh chin curtain

    I searched high and low for a new helmet under 200. First criteria was a white helmet for visibility purposes and my Triumph T-Bird is white as well. Second, I wanted major noise reduction improvement vs my open faced Fulmer which was not hard to do and so far the GM78 has exceeded my expectations. Outside of those 2 things, the visibility is great can't say that for all full faced helmets, the venting is nice, the rear light is good to have for riding at night, and the sun shade is nice too but I'm not sure how much I'll use it since I were good riding glasses. The jury is still out on the mesh chin curtain but time will tell. The only real con is the sizing, most brands I fit in to a L or XL, and the Gmax sizing charts says XL for me. No way. I had to step up to a XXL for comfort. I certainly recommend this helmet for all it offers but make sure you buy 1 size larger.

    Nice helmet but fit was odd - Brian in MD   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Good overall quality, excellent internal sun visor, value
    Cons: peculiar fit front to back

    I needed to replace my 3yr old HJC IS-16, which had served me well but was starting to show some wear. I had bought my wife a GMAX68S last year for the occasional rides on the back, and was so impressed with that model that I decided to go for a GMAX for myself this time. I was excited to see this new GM78 model with the internal visor - one of the features I loved about my HJC. So I ordered one in solid white Compacc had the lowest price of any online dealer, btw and it arrived quickly. I ordered the small, which is the same size I wear in other helmets I also have a Sparx and as soon as I tried it on I knew something was not right. The helmet fit well side to side and at the cheeks, but the padding in front was pressing so hard into my forehead that it was downright painful. I wore it for about 15 minutes hoping it would resolve but no dice. Interestingly, my wife's GM68S is an XS, and although tight it actually fit me without any discomfort. My personal fit issues notwithstanding, this is a high quality helmet - especially at under 120. It looks to have great venting, the main visor is outstanding, and the internal sun visor is just as nice as my HJC - it comes down low enough so that you don't see the bottom edge - an issue I've read about in other helmets with internal visors. It felt about average weight to me. Since I didn't ride with it, I can't comment on noise control. Lastly, the GMAX 78 continues with the built-in LED on the back of the helmet, same as the 68S. I find this to be a nifty feature for added rider visibilty, even it it is considered by some to be a bit gimmicky. Overall, if the fit works for you, it's a great helmet - and recommended.

    Wouldn't buy this helmet again - Greg B   Recommended by Reviewer: No
    Pros: Cheap price
    Cons: Inner shield slider mechanism extremly fragile. J&M speaker required alot of modifications.

    I bought this helmet because I had a GM17s for years and really liked it. When I got the first GM78, the shield slider broke off in my hand. I got another one and the slider was already broken and loose in the box. Competition sent me another slider at no charge, thanks to competition acc. After wearing the helmet for 1 hour the liner seam in the top front of the helmet was extremely uncomfortable. There is very little padding in the liner. I've installed my GM17 liner and the helmet is ok now. J&M speaker installation required extensive modification to the inner part of the helmet, plus I had to modify the cheek pads to keep them from blocking the speakers. I bought 2 of these helmets, one for me and one for my wife , an xl and a xxl, when I had the helmets apart I noticed on the Styrofoam that they had xxl stamps in both helmets, apparently GMAX sizes them by changing cheek pads and liners, interesting. I would not buy this helmet again..I guess you get what you pay for in this instance.
