Best Fitting XC Helmet

If you like the fit and look of a Pro-Tec style helmet but still want the venting of an XC helmet this is for you. I have used both the Xen and Hex helmets and both are great helmets, but I have always loved the fit of a Pro-Tec. This fits very similar to that while still giving you adequate venting. The visor is also a plus. It's long and very easy to adjust up and down. My only complaint is that the strap is kind of thin and is already starting to show signs of wear.
