Great Helmet

The helmet is great! It is super light; I barely notice it is on my head. The venting is superb, we have been getting clobbered with 100 plus degree days in the NJ and this helmet has kept me cool during my rides. I’m convinced the venting keeps me cooler than if I were wearing no helmet at all, which I will not do, even for testing purposes. However, the way the vents are cut makes it feel like you have ceiling fan above your head. I am basically trying to say that the helmet is very lightweight and the venting is great. The new material used for the straps makes a huge difference in comfort. They are super lightweight and feel really good against my face and chin, I hardly notice they’re there as well. The RocLoc 5 system is a vast improvement over the older systems. It lets you micro dial-in the tension adjustments. Overall I could not be more pleased with this purchase. It was expensive but worth every penny in my opinion because head protection is the most important thing when riding. Shorts, gloves, shoes, etc. are all secondary to head protection IMHO.
