Summary

Keeps your head safe, but seems to lack a few pieces that could make it better.

Pros

  • Safe
  • Strong

Cons

  • Cold

Overall it's a solid helmet that does what it's designed to do, that being keep me safe. However it seems to lack the extras which could be expected from a helmet in its normal price range.

The ear flaps don't sit snug on my ears and in order to get them even close I have to have the chin strap uncomfortably tight, this makes it so even on the warmest days I still have to wear a buff over my ears. That's the main drawback but just to nitpick, it would be nice if the vents were more adjustable instead of having to take off the helmet and put in or remove a stopper for them, and once you get into the larger helmet sizes (ie XL/XXL for my giant nogin) it just looks like a massive fishbowl on your head, however that may be unavoidable.
