Overall Review:

I wasn't looking for a new helmet, but my current one was starting to get a little long in the tooth. On an unrelated errand at Dick's Sporting goods I walked by the bike section and just happened to look over at the helmets. I had a Giro Xen back in the day and really liked the fit but haven't worn a Giro for a while. I tried on the Fixture on a whim and was pleasantly surprised at how well it fit despite being one size only. The thing that sold me was it was only $45! They could have easily slapped a $85-100 pricetag on this and it wouldn't be out of place. I'm glad they didn't though. (this is for the non-mips model, btw)

My head circumference is 56.5cm or 22.25 inches and I typically wear S/M or M/L depending on the brand. The Fixture uses a simple circular wheel tightening system that's easy to reach and use with gloves. There's quite a range of adjustment and I can see this fitting well for many despite the one size fits all. It feels snug and fits like a helmet should. The chin strip is a buckle, simple and easy to snap and unbuckle. Strap adjustments are easy and don't slip and aren't super long as some other brands.

It's fairly lightweight considering the amount of protection if offers for the back of the head. It's a great option for trail/all mtn riding. The color options are solid and should make most people happy. The finish is a nice satin/matte and is so far very durable. So far I'm lucky to not have to test it yet, but it seems like it would protect my head like most well made mtb helmets. 

Conclusion: This is a solid helmet for beginners, budget-minded riders, and experienced riders alike. Given the low cost, it's an easy choice if you're in need of a simple no nonsense helmet that looks good. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one.
