OK, so it is a little pricy, but can you put a value on your noggin? I have had one for a few years and I love it. I paid full price and I would again, but if you can get it on sale.. BUY IT! I had a buddy go down and land on his head wearing this helmet. Of course the helmet was destroyed but it was interesting to see that the thing was build with crumple zones.. Another testament to the Atmos!
