Great value in a...
Great value in a super lightweight helmet with waaay oversize vents, ideal for cooling off off my perspiring cranium.I have a large melon and so got the large. Even so, I have the ratchet mechanism open all the way and it fits nicely - but only just. Being a navy dude, I keep my hair short, but if you have a large pumpkin and a sizable pompadour, recommend you look at something that comes in XL.Shipping to Canada was uber-fast, and kudos to JensonUSA for the all-in shipping price - no customs, duty or brokerage fees is definitely a plus!

Great Helmet!!!!
Great Helmet!!! Purchased for my 8 year old son ......and he loves it!!! Fits great, has great adjustability and a space for a ponytail, if needed. This replaced an older Bell Vela, which after 4 years still looks and wears great, but recently broke on him.

Great helmet for kids at an unbeatable price!!!
I have found that if you buy a good helmet for them.... One that fits well, they will wear it!!!!

PROS: Good Ventilation, Tough, Highly Adjustable, Comfortable Fit, Lightweight

BEST USES: Short Rides, Mountain Biking

Great helmet, great value
Evidently, I have a Bell-shaped head. No other brand fits quite like a Bell, and I have never been disappointed by one of their helmets. This is an excellent helmet - lightweight, great ventilation, removable yet secure visor, and it looks great. Plus, it was a really good deal. I'd expect nothing less from Bell and Jenson.

PROS: Lightweight, Great fit, Nice fit system/pads, Convenient back-of-head adjustment, Durable, Good ventilation

BEST USES: Warm Weather, Everyday riding, Mountain biking

Awesome brain bucket!
I was looking for a new helmet as my old one didn't fit right. Just happened to try on the last one in this size and wow! It all I can say! It fit me perfectly! I have a more of a oval head shape (if your looking from above). No pressure points, the adjuster is great. Padding is pretty good too, the helmet comes with 2 extra side pads but no center which is a bit of a bummer. I tried on many others and none of them fit me :( I use this for road and mountain, cold or hot. The ventilation is great! You really feel the air cooling your head. Strap adjustments are good.

My size is: medium 55-59cm

PROS: Nice fit system/pads, Good ventilation, Convenient back-of-head adjustment, Lightweight

BEST USES: Warm Weather, Cold-weather riding, Road cycling, Mountain biking, Everyday riding

Good price, fit, and very crash worthy
I crashed and broke my old Giro helmet last summer so I got an Influx because it was cheap and comfortable. The large fits me well even if I have a skull cap, cold weather cap, or headband on under it. I crashed in an XC race a couple weeks after I got my first Influx and it did it's job to save my brain. Cracked right through the back. After I finished the race, I went out and bought a new one the next day. Great helmet...does what it's supposed to.

PROS: Comfortable Fit, Good Ventilation

First off I have had...
First off I have had this helmet for over 3 years and it has withstood mile after mile of hard XC riding. After this many years and starting to road ride more I realized this helmet has probably a little long in the tooth to survive a serious road crash so I went on the hunt to find a road worthy helmet. I settled on a Giro initially but after 1 25 mile ride I was swearing like mad and wishing I had my old Influx on. It just didn't fit my head so I promptly returned it and grabbed a new Influx in white to give me better visibility on the road and now reserve my old helmet for Mt. biking only. Bottom line this helmet lasts and its worthy of road riding as well. Its highly durable and for me is one of those pieces of gear that I just don't even think about, I know its gonna fit and do the job if I crash. Highly recommended!

sharp helmet but one fitment pro
I use for mountain biking. The plastic piece in back with dial works great to get secure fit. However it just might be the shape of my head and where my ears are that the plastic piece cuts into the top of my ears. I just have to loosen the dial a bit and it cuts into my ear less. Good price for what you get. Helmets can be relatively expensive.

PROS: Easy adjusments, Quality, Good Looking

CONS: One fitment issue

BEST USES: Mountain biking, Keep head cool
