    “Good looks, comfort and value”

    The Good: Good fit, very comfortable, large vents create great breath ability and keep you cool on the hot days

    The Bad: Rear straps are in a weird spot, the size adjuster is hard to accurately adjust both sides evenly. Large vents make it tricky to stick a gopro mount on.

    Overall Review:

    Overall I am very happy with this helmet, the comfort and fit is up to par with most other helmets out there such as Giro and Bell. I found the fit of this helmet to be very comfortable, breathable and with no movement once tight on your head. Although I have not had any crashes on this lid yet the overall durability of the helmet seems really good, there is nothing flimsy and everything is made with good quality.

    The only somewhat bad thing about this helmet is that the adjustment on the rear inside of the helmet requires the use of two hands and is also very hard to accurately adjust both sides evenly unless the helmet is taken off. This isn't a big issue but could potentially mean that the helmet doesn't sit evenly on your head. Comfort wise it works really well though.

    Lastly, again not really really a major issue but due to the big vents and the unique shape of this helmet it makes it tricky to stick on a gopro mount evenly onto the lid. I managed to stick on one although not sitting flush with the helmet and it hasn't come off yet though.

    Overall I would recommend this helmet as it is comfy and a good value.

    “it's ok...”

    The Good: fits well l/xl does its job I guess

    The Bad: 1 endo and the helmet was toast

    Overall Review:

    For a 100 dollar helmet I thought the quality would be a lot better. When I got the helmet, I noticed that some of the plastic pieces that hold the straps in place were popped out. I attempted to pop them back in only to find that they were broken and would not stay in place....No big deal, I wanted to ride. Every time I pull the helmet out for a ride, the stupid pads that are velcroed in fall out, its annoying. I took one spill and now the helmet has a huge dent in it and is useless....I would not recommend this helmet, spend the extra 50 dollars and get a TLD

    “Flux helmet”

    The Good: Great fit, style and durability.

    The Bad: Hasn't changed since 07. I guess if it ante broke why fix it.

    Overall Review: Great all mountain, trial helmet. Never moves and looks good. Been using one since 07 and its hard to try others when this works so well.
