I got this on clearance last fall and I'm not sorry I did. It fit great, has good ventilation and is pretty lightweight. All helmets have to meet the same safety requirements, regardless of price. I find it difficult then, to justify spending nearly twice the cost of this helmet for some other ones. Weight and fit are the differences between really cheap helmets and really expensive ones. My size large weighs 358g. A $200+ helmet might weigh a little less than 300g, but my head is huge , so I could care less! The adjustment system in the back and the straps works really well, and the buckle being off to the side is a great design. I would recommend this to anyone looking for the next step up from a basic helmet design.
