I got this not too long after I found my bike came out of the air and cracked my Giro helmet. I wanted one that didn't look all spaceship like and this one looked pretty tough. I was also looking at the Fox Flux. I got this one in a quick amount of time. I put it on and found that this is a little heavy. Looks good and feels like a batter's helmet. The matte black is killer, but it is Soooo hot in the summer heat. I find that I have to press on the back to allow some airflow in the front and that feels awesome. that is my only complaint, no front vents. The ones with a cloth like brim so have front vents, but don't look as cool. I ride until there is too much snow on the ground, so I am looking forward to the cooler season. My wife wants to wear my helmet each time we ride. I will buy another one of these should I endo again and need a new helmet.
