Definitely a great helmet for the price.
PROS: Padding, Lightweight, Looks, Design
The only problem was, even though I was careful, the visor mounting tabs broke off on one side when I removed the visor. Bell has a much better system, but I never use the visor anyway, so not an issue.
PROS: Quality build, smooth adjustment, Nice looking, Good Ventilation, Lightweight
BEST USES: Mountain biking, Everyday Commuter Helmet, Road biking
I read some negatives about the ratcheting system not getting tight enough and I chose to ignore them. The helmet's clutch system works great, but the whole purpose of it is negated for me. I wear a size medium helmet and this one fits perfect (Small/Medium Size).
BUT the amount of strap that the wheel ratchet can take in is not enough! 2-4 more clicks and this helmet would be PERFECT, but unfortunately I'm left feeling like the helmet sits quite loose on my head. This is exaggerated if you ride with anything like a helmet camera or light mounted up top.
Love my Kali shin/knee guards combo, and I would LOVE to love this helmet, but the design flaw makes it unsatisfactory. I don't have an extra small head or anything like that and sadly I won't be buying another one of these should I have a bad crash (it sits well enough to continue to wear it, but not extra securely).
Just for a frame of reference, I'm 23 years old at 155lbs with a lean build, so I'm no burly dude. Just be aware of the problem.
