So here I am, in dire need of replacing my current lid, its days are finally numbered. For whatever reasons unbeknownst to me (nostalgia?), I am still rockin' the skater style lid. After seeing the Segment, I knew I needed to be wearing it.
Gold Flake 500 por favor. Daaamn, talk about bass boatin' sparkles for days! Sure, there are some other more subdued colors it comes in, but I plan on using this for the upcoming season of SSCX. Best recognize!
Anyhow, wearing this thing, the fit is on point. Comfy and secure like a kangaroo pouch around my crown. But, but, but, here is where things turned my smile upside down... It gets hot, like cruise ship boiler room hot. I knew going in it only had like 8 vents, but dang, I seriously can't wear this in the summer time. Sure, in the fall and winter seasons, it'll keep me warm and toasty, but for right now, in the hot and humid south, no freakin' way.
Maybe you live in a cooler climate? Maybe you're one of those riders who refrains from having mid-ride sweat showers pour down your face? Whatever the case, if you answered yes to either of those, then this helmet is definitely for you. Unfortunately for me, I require a bit more air flow in the dome department, thus the search continues.
