Elastic, or no elastic. That is the question.
Some people hate the elastic. Some people love it. I am in the latter group. I find the elastic to be way more comfortable than anything else. It may not last as long but I'd rather be comfortable. And yes, I do think the helmet's shape could be a little sleeker but that could be said for many of Giro's helmets. I have a larger head so the shape works well for me. I picked this up for $100 and upgraded from a cheap Bell, so maybe I am easy to please, but I love this helmet so far.
