Take no flak with the flak
I dig this helmet. Have had it since fall of '08 and although haven't had the misfortune of testing it's durability, I think it will do just fine. I mountain bike with a mix of trail and road. I like this style over "The Navigator" space ship looking helmets. Vents are adequate. I have a size 7 3/8 to 7 1/2 inch head(as far as fitted hats are concerned) and I bought the Large. After mixing and matching the available foam padding inserts I was able to find a nice, comfy fit. Overall, this is one pretty cool helmet.
