Since there is little information on safety to compare helmets and they all meet certain safety requirements, choosing a helmet comes down to fit, comfort , and style. This helmet ticked off all the boxes for me. First, a helmet has to fit comfortably and this one had a wide range of adjustment. I particularly like the way the retention system moves up and down behind the head-positioned properly, the helmet fits snugly on your head even without the chin strap clasped. There is great airflow and the rear vents seem to pull air through the helmet providing excellent cooling. Materials are great and craftsmanship first class. Lots of colors to choose from and replacement pads are readily available. I like the smaller size of the overall helmet-some look huge on your head but this one looks great. All together a good package. To address the weight issue mentioned in other reviews-I think it is simply a case of a corporate boo-boo on the part of Kask. Their website lists the helmet at 220 g in size M (as does CC in their description), however the label in my size M states a weight of 275 g. Makes sense when you see a pic of one on a scale showing a weight of 276 g. I tried to make contact to Kask through their website about this but no response. Bottom line, for me I'm not sure I can tell the difference in 30-40 g on my rides of 30-50 miles. I try not to get bound up in the numbers-this helmet fits me great, is comfortable, has good airflow, and looks great.
