Before I bought this helmet, I was struggling up the singletrack, falling at every turn, and being laughed at by all the real riders blowing by me. My silly road helmet was a disgrace. I hid in shame, only riding at night, with no lights, in the hopes of avoiding the cat calls and looks of disdain from other riders. Then, this helmet came. Suddenly I was flying up the track. I passed casual riders, hard core riders, pros gaped as I forced them to the side and cruised past at breakneck speed. I passed EVERYONE. and I did it in style.
Fox makes good kit. The helmet has a nice range of fit options within the S/M, or L/XL size options. Comes with additional padding pieces for a more precise fit.
The sun visor is a necessity in the dessert.
Good coverage over the important parts of the cranium.
My only complaint might be the chin strap. I'm having a little difficulty getting it exactly where I want it to go around my ears, not rub with a pair of sunglasses and sit tight on the chin. Seems there's 2x as much strap as needed flopping around and hitting my handlebars as i ride. OK, not THAT much extra strap...
