Familiarity: I've used it several times
I switch regularly between road and mountain riding and got this helmet to fulfill both functions, and have been using it for a few months at this point (luckily without any crash testing). As other reviews have mentioned, the straps can be a bit finicky to get settled initially, but after fiddling with them for a ride or two to get them set correctly, I stopped even noticing that I'm wearing the helmet anymore, which is exactly how it should be. Other than the under-ear strap clips, the other adjustment options were easy to customize to get the fit right as advertised. Ventilation has been great on both road and mountain rides in a variety of conditions. It's worth noting that the matte finish is starting to flake off slightly revealing gloss underneath just from everyday use and storage over a few months. Overall, I've been pleased with this helmet and would definitely consider purchasing it again when I'm up for a replacement.
