Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

First, this is basically a very comfortable helmet, and it was the model that finally got me to wear a helmet on a daily basis. Second, it is very warm (without the need to wear a hat under) given the cushy liner. Third, it looks great, and is a break from the "standard". Those are all the pluses.
I found it runs really small - I am a medium in Smith, POC and finally ended up with an XL (which shocked me). And, the helmet pushes down on the nose which gets to be uncomfortable after a while...I use the Smith Fuse (and did try the smaller Phenom) but admittedly did not try other options. I have switched to a Pret - and though I need to wear a beanie, I like the fit on my face a bit better.I think with helmets it is a trial and error, personal preference thing, but this is worth a try.
