I have an IS Max 2. From a google search it looks like it may be the same model. I have had it since the summer of 2015. I'm happy with it. I wear earplugs and it is the only helmet I have owned so I don't have a way to compare quietness, comfort and venting. It fits me well but I new that when I bought it having tried it on in the store for 15 minutes. I like the cut out for the arms of my glasses. I don't find it overly hot but I don't think weather here would get as warm as South Texas. Very easy to use with the release under the chin. It comes with a pin lock insert to help with fogging which I didn't appreciate until I took it out. I really like a modular for the cold weather. I can wrap a neck gaiter around my chin, put my helmet on, and then still adjust the gaiter position before closing the helmet. I have a sold white one. In a couple year I will be shopping for another helmet and would be happy getting another.
