HJC FS-10 helmet with internal visor

Does anyone have any experience with the new HJC FS-10 full-face helmet with built-in sun visor?? I currently wear a Schuberth Concept I, which also has the internal visor, but looking to possibly get a new helmet. I wear sunglasses quite a bit so the internal visors are a big selling feature for me. I've really enjoyed my Schuberth, but I hear that there's, not currently, a U.S. distributor for spare parts. Plus, I'm right in the middle of trying to mount some J&M speakers in my Schuberth. . .which ain't easy. . .and was looking at the new HJC as a possible easier mount job. Any reviews out there? Thanks!

I have one. I have only ridden with it once. I really like it. I tried on quite a few helmets trying to decide. I really like the sun visor. It could be a little darker but I am sure they were worried about some stupid liabilty issue. The sun was out but not a bright summer sun. It worked great. I went about 50 miles above 60 and it was not noisy at all. The chin vent is a little tricky to feel through my winter glove. There was good air flow with them both open. the face sheild fogged a little at stop but cleared instantly on pulling away. I really like the way the face sheild attaches. Really easy to take on and off and it really closes tightly. I bought a solid black model on ebay from ridersdiscount. I paid $185 with shipping. From what I found looking around it was the best price I could find. There shipping is slow (took almost a week) and their customer service is not so nice. But the price was right.

I like dark sun glasses and the new helmet is pretty light with the tent. I tried on my neighbor's he agree's. If they make a darker one I will be on it.
