Pros: Lightweight, comfy, secure fit, and bomber construction.
It's hard to imagine raving about a piece of gear as simple as a helmet, but that's just what this lid makes me want to do. First off, the fit is just awesome. The retention system is intuitive & easy to work with gloves on, and once you have it dialed in it sticks to your head like it's glued on. Second, this thing is amazingly light. My old helmet makes me feel like a bobble-head doll in comparison. The venting on it is neat. You can totally tell it's it's working, but even on a windy day and with the vents fully open you feel cold air flowing directly onto your head. How rad is that? Now I'm not much of one for ear flaps for anything but the coldest of days, so even though they're ready for any of the drop-in audio kits out there I was stoked at how simple it is to swap them out when I don't need them. Like I said at the beginning, I'm absolutely blown away by this helmet. I wish my bike, moto, and skate lids had as much thought and clever design behind them. This really is my new benchmark.
