retention/adjust interferes w sunglasses
- I've put it through the wringer
- True to size
After 4-5 mos of dealing with this nuisance i bought a new helmet. Bummer because it looks clean on your head and is affordable.

Great looking lid with one (major) issue
- I returned this product before using it
- True to size
Great-looking, Italian-made, budget-friendly helmet with one fatal flaw: the oversize rear retention cradle interferes with ends of sunglasses making this a non-starter for me. No amount of adjustment would fix this for any pair of eyewear I tried, normal eyeglasses included. Over, under, loosened retention etc. - all resulted in either poor helmet fit, discomfort or sunglasses falling forward. Thought of modifying a cheap pair of shades by trimming 1 cm off arms just so I could wear this, but decided it wasn't worth it. Otherwise I'd rate the fit/comfort pretty good, not quite as comfortable as my Giro Foray. With my 56CM head size I'm usually at the bottom range of most size mediums, making some models look more bulbous on me; the Rapido doesn't and has a more streamlined, closer to head fit. Shame because I really wanted to like this helmet-it's easily one of the best-looking models I've tried on. Hoping Kask eventually get this issue sorted someday, as apparently I'm not alone with eyewear problems based on other reviews.

I can second the comment about sunglasses (purchased this at my LBS, not CC). The only ones that fit for me were my normal daytime sunglasses with the curved ends, which turned out to be okay because I'm using this as a commuter helmet, so those are the sunglasses I'd be using with this helmet. But the "sports" style sunglasses with the straight-back arms...none of my existing ones works with this helmet due to that issue mentioned in the original comment.
