Super light. Extra pads come with it. It doesn't look enormous on your head like some of the other helmets out there.
Protects my head too well, now I don't have an excuse to get out of work...
I have had 2 pretty bad crashes with this helmet now, and it has protected my melon perfectly both times. Also, usually with really bad crashes the helmet will crack and you have to replace it, but this one is showing no signs of that. I love how light it is, it doesn't feel like you have a 15 pound lead weight wrapped around your head. It also doesn't make your head look like it's 2X bigger than your body, which really bothered me about other helmets. This helmet will not let you down!
