Minimalist & Simple

This helmet tickles my minimalist bone big time. It fits my rather large melon just right, and accommodates a cycling cap without fuss. I like the "throw it on & forget it" aspect, instead of messing around with clicking-this and adjustable-that. Style-wise, the silver graphics on the white are cheesy, but fortunately they are not visible except under close scrutiny. Not as sexy & svelte as the Aeon, but that's not why you buy the Prolight. You buy this helmet for two reasons: (1) psychological edge, and (2) less strain on the neck over the long haul. Yes, that's splitting hairs...but if you get it, you get it
