    “Decent helmet for a decent price.”

    The Good: It keeps your head safe

    The Bad: I could never get it to fit quite right.

    Overall Review:

    This helmet is probably the lowest I am willing to go as far as price for protecting my dome, and it works! The accu-dial adjustment works well for getting the right fit on the rear of your head, but the straps ride at a weird angle around my ears and sometimes irritate me. I know how to adjust my helmet properly and have never had this issue with helmets before but the straps just seem to want to twist right before the front and rear straps converge under the earcausing it to be slightly uncomfortable. It's not enough to bother me on shorter rides but when I go on an all-day trail ride it can start to get annoying. Wearing my sunglasses(which I almost always do) helps this a lot but that shouldn't be necessary to get a proper fit.

    This helmet serves it's purpose and doesn't look as bad as some of the other cheap options. If you don't have the money to get into the $50+ helmets this one will certainly get the job done. I think I'm just ready for an upgrade.
