Great budget helmet

Rating:
The Good:

Good coverage, reasonably lightweight, looks good

The Bad:

Ventilation could be better, no strap adjustment, retention system is finicky

Overall Review:

I picked this helmet up for less than $60 - it's a screaming deal. Fit is great, but my head fits Giro helmets well so that is not a surprise. Weight is reasonable for the coverage, and the helmet provides good coverage without looking like a bowling ball strapped to my head.

Only a couple gripes. Breathability is generally fine for the cool weather we see here in the Northwest, but it can struggle in warmer conditions. The helmet also doesn't fit a pair of goggles too well - though I rarely ride with them, it would be nice to have a more accommodating shape for those really sloppy days that they are a necessity. Additionally, the retention system has been a little finicky for me and has gotten stuck a few times. The little wheel isn't ideal to adjust on the fly.

Excellent Trail/All Mountain Helmet

Rating:
The Good:

low weight In Mold construction, low profile fit, good lower head coverage, comfortable adjustment system, solid ventilation

The Bad:

lack of strap adjustment could be an issue for some riders.

Overall Review:

I've used the Feature for a couple of seasons with excellent results. The shape of the helmet is slightly more round than the Bell Super or POC Trabec.   The Feature has a low profile fit and offers good lower head protection.  The adjustable retention system helps you dial in the fit.  Goggles work great with this helmet.   The padding inside the helmet does a good job of wicking away sweat without the padding being too thick or uncomfortably thin.  If you are the type of rider that needs to make fore/aft strap adjustments, the minimalist straps on the Feature may be a deal breaker.  Otherwise, the Feature is an outstanding all mountain helmet with great coverage, low profile fit and good ventilation - at a price that is tough to beat.
