I moved up from Giro to 661 and now a POC. This is my favorite so far. Never was a fan of the TLD stuff and the POC line-up of stuff is top notch. This helmet is nothing less than awesome. Plenty of viewing space to see the trees coming at you, and the vents do there best to keep your melon cool. I've got my helmet paired up with the POC iris google and its a match made in heaven. If you are looking for a lightweight, no carbon lid go try one of these one, the are super comfy.
