Great all around helmet

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I wanted a helmet to cover me for putting in the miles on the road and trail riding. I didn't want to go down the pathway of two different helmets, and would rather a bit more coverage and protection than the lighter, more minimalist road helmets. The Plasma is perfect for this application, and looks good doing it. Ventilation is paramount - it is regularly >100F during summer where i live and the Plasma is extremely well ventilated. I don't think i have a particularly oval or round head and it fits me the best of any helmet i have found to date. Sizing is perhaps a touch small. If in doubt, go up.

Good looking and very practical. It sits on your head with a lower center of gravity which makes it very comfortable. It is a little heavier than I'm use but it is very well made. I would recommend it for all types of riding. I've only used it in cold weather but the venting design should make it a nice fit for hot rides. Great value for the price.
