Strengths:    Light, great fit, transparent visor

Weaknesses:    wind makes noise passing through vent holes as you are travelling at speed!

Bottom Line:   
Although I already had a Giro Remedy, which I was very happy with, as soon as I tried this on I had to buy it! Much lighter than the Giro and a better fit, so much that going back to the Giro made me realise it was giving me a headeache...
Haven't crashed since I bought it, so I don't know how well it does in that department.

Strengths:    Lite wieght,great air venting,clean grafics,price competitive,

Weaknesses:    can't find any yet.

Bottom Line:   
All I could say is this is one of the nicest helmets I've used since I got my D2.And I never thought I would change helmets,but since I've been using this helmet for free riding and downhill racing it's been great.#1 it feels lighter then my D2,#2 I feel it breathes bertter then my D2,#3 it looks clean (black grafic also white grafic,and the more popular transperant.),but we all know the Troy lee D2 paint jobs can't be beat.
I know most people don't know Dainese makes a helmet ,but this is one to check out.

Strengths:    Lightweight, comfortable, good visibility, and I can hear people when I am wearing it.

Weaknesses:    None that I can see

Bottom Line:   
Great helmet - expensive but what price is your head worth? Less constricting than my Giro Remedy and doesn't give me a headache like the Remedy.

Strengths:    Looks amazing! light, breathable, very comfortable, very strong, DAINESE QUALITY!

Weaknesses:    No good place to put on a helmet light or helmet cam.

Bottom Line:   
I went riding with the Dainese pro riders the day after I bought this and went head first into the point of a rock. The impact was well dispersed and I hardly felt it. The helmet held up very well for the speed I was going with minor scratches and a minor crack. It's not a streetbike helmet so I'll keep using it.
