Ok, Ive had a chance to put about 120 miles on the FX140.
So far its ok for the money with very good points and very bad ones.
It is super quiet compared to any other helmet Ive had. Under 35MPH is like riding in a cage, I get no wind noise at all, its almost spooky like Im riding in a vacuum or something. Once I get above 35 I start hearing some air around the bottom of the helmet. The shield seals great, I hear or feel nothing coming in between the shield and helmet. Something worth mentioning, I do have an aftermarket windshield that comes up to about nipple level (Ha HA he said nipple) but I do have relatively clean air around my helmet. I did not notice any significant amount of distortion in the shield with the shield completely down but if you raise it to the first notch, the distortion around the bottom of the shield is almost intolerable. Its mainly because of the shield and chin bar shape at the very front. The shield lift lip is also at the very front center of the shield, which interferes with your vision straight ahead with the shield in any position besides fully closed. I ride alot with the shield raised into the first notch and this has been an issue for me. It is worth saying that with the shield all the way down, visablility is fantastic in all directions.
The fit, for me, is comfortable but a little weird. It fits tight on my forehead and has tended to want to push the front of the helmet down my face. My face and brow feels smashed down like a blood hound's. Its not real bad and actually my HJC feels the same way so it may be something funky with my head and not the helmet.
The ventilation sucks, I cant tell if the vents are open or closed, Ive usually had a sweaty head when I pull the helmet off.
