Overall Review:

This is my second Trail RS helmet. I bought one and was a huge fan, so when i dropped my first one and damaged it I went out and bought another one. This is one of the more comfortable helmets I have owned. I went from the original Bell Super (which fit me like crap and was too hot) to a Bell Stoker (this fit good but was vented like garbage) to the Trail RS. So based on my recent helmet history this is the cats pajamas. It fits my head shape very well and is comfortable for all day adventures. The retention adjustment is easy to use on the fly and has been trouble free. My only beef with this helmet is that it doesn't deal with brow sweat well at all. I sweat a fair bit and the sweat just runs down my face. I rarely ride with glasses, but when I tried the glasses just got covered in sweat. I find the only way to help mange the sweat is to lean over and push the helmet into my head to kind of wring out the front pad when I stop. It is a bit of a hassle, but the helmet is comfortable enough that I don't mind and it is just habit now. This may be just an issue with the shape of my head or the fact that I sweat too much. Another riding buddy has the same helmet and doesn't have this issue, I may just need to get in better shape so I sweat less.
