Half Shell Heroics

Rating: Featured Member Review
The Good:

Fits good, breathes well, useful visor tilt adjust, MIPS WORKS.

The Bad:

Cushions are good but don't absorb sweat quite as well as the Giro Montaro.

Overall Review:

To sum it up quick, I'd gladly buy another one. This helmet is a solid half shell choice to keep your head safe. Take a gander at the pics below for some proof this helmet does its job. While out for a rip on the Wasatch Crest my pedal decided to give a rock a surprise high five.

I was following a buddy a little to close down and didn't see a sneaky rock on the right hand side of the Mill D trail. In a split second I found myself laying on my side, bike under me, feet still on the pedals, and hands still gripping the bars. I snagged my pedal at 20-25mph which sent me into a full flat ground front flip off my head. To my surprise I walked away with only a cracked helmet, no concussion, no whiplash, and only a tiny little fracture in the wrist.The crazy thing is how I remember mid crash feeling myself bounce on my head. Safe to say, the helmet did its job. 

If you're looking for proof just peep the bent crank arm in the pics. So far I haven't found anyone that's seen one bent like this before. Show me another and I'll mail you $5.
