Familiarity: I've used it several times
Hats off to Bell for making this helmet. With the chin bar removed it is basically Bell's Super 2 helmet; a helmet with a visor and increased coverage for the back of the head. The chin bar attaches easily with the helmet on and is preferred as the straps stay where they need to this way. The chin bar has a fat cheek pad that snugs the helmet against your face. Caution: This is not a downhill helmet! This is not a replacement for a dedicated full face downhill helmet. Rather it is used to provide serious improvement in protection compared to a regular XC helmet. I love it for the type of riding I do because I strap the chin bar to the back of my pack, ride uphill for a few hours and when I reach the top of the climb I throw on the chin bar for increased protection. This is great for me as I would never carry a downhill helmet on a ride like this with all the water needed pedal uphill for hours.
As a final note, the Mips fits and feels the same as the non-Mips Super 2R. It seems like a no brainer to step up to the Mips to increase your chances of surviving a traumatic crash.
