Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
If you're like me and bike in insect infested areas, then you'll appreciate this lid immensely. Considering that the general consensus is that you'll need to ride in excess of 12 mph to outpace those pesky biting deer flies, this lid handles that & slower speeds equally well. Bug nets are close to the scalp, and that hasn't kept the biting & sucking bugs at bay in my experiences. But the Koroyd "straws" are long & narrow, and no bugs bugged me at all for the Lutsen 99er, which literally swarms with bugs in late June (Lake Superior, North Shore).
Probably not an intended characteristic by Smith (and the Overtake - road helmet), but I thought I'd point this out as it is nice benefit.
One Con: The glossy finish gets dull & doesn't wash well. I would have expected mosquito repellent to wash right off, but it left a residue. Stick to matte finish, and I think you'll be happier.
