Best lid for my head, hands down.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Flux fits great (on me), looks money, sits lower than Bell and Giro XC-style helmets, and has way bigger vents than most MTB helmets. My only gripes would be that the huge front vents tend to scoop in the occasional bug, and the rear fit system eventually gets tired out after 3 or 4 seasons of heavy (2-3x per week all spring, summer and fall) use. Everything else is top notch. Love this helmet and will definitely buy another if this one takes a bad hit.
