This helmet is awesome. Light, comfortable, and the venting works great.

It may not last as long as the hard shell ones, but it is worth it. This helmet stays put, which in my opinion makes it even safer than the some hard shell ones that don't stay in place. It is worth the money.

Price Paid: $90

Great helmet. I can wear it with or without hats or dreads very comfortably. It vents great in the summer and you forget that it is on head. I have taken several small falls and knocked my noggin with this helmet and it is still in good shape.

Price Paid: ~$90

I have not tried other helmets, but have looked over others, and this one is so lightweight, you hardly even notice it's on, which is a good thing when using a helmet.

Price Paid: $90

Any helmet is better than no helmet. Remember though, the best helmet is the one that you never have to test.
This one is good enough but the less expensive ones work too.

Fit is more important than style. Why? Glad you asked. BECAUSE if it doesn't fit it may not work correctly, and now, what's style gonna do for you if your forehead is under your chin?
