The helmet is lightweight and the size is good (doesn't look like a bubble on the head). The reason I returned the helmet is due to no padding in the rear inside. The front to middle/top of head is padded but there is absolutely zero padding from the top to back of head. If one were to fall and hit the rear/back of the head, the inside plastic support bands would probably slice/cut into the head. When wearing the helmet, I pushed on the rear of the helmet and I could feel the edges of the plastic support bands sharply pushing into my head. A back of the head impact may possibly result in getting stitches. Not a chance I am willing to take. The fit was also slightly off for me - the helmet support tightened nicely in the front and rear but was a bit loose on the sides - did not fit my head perfectly.

- I've put it through the wringer
- Runs large
Skeet skeet, sweat dripped down my eye balls... Those that sweat may not get along with this one. The mips pad ties line up with your eyes creating a constant flow down to your eyes that literally stings. I had one of my worst crashes ever in this helmet, landing on my shoulder and head (broken helmet) off of a 30ft jump. The siren started going off on my phone once I crashed (due to ANGI) and I scrambled to disable it so my wife wouldn't be worried. I had no lingering concussion symptoms which was impressive given the blood showing inside the broken helmet. I will probably get this again in the comp model so I don't have the sweat issue with the pads. Such a bummer that a great helmet could be ruined by the oversight in sweat management.

Sizing runs big
Bought a size Medium based on the Specialized fit guide, It was about a full size too big. Helmet looks nice and well built, I wished it would have worked out.;
