Strengths:    
-Great looks
-Good fit
-Excellent protection


Weaknesses:    
-A tad heavy
-Minimul vents


Bottom Line:   
After having a nasty crash and smashing my Vigor, I decided to go with a much stronger helmet. The O'Neal is AWSOME! I wish it had a few more vents, but I'll trade that for the extra protection. It's a sweet looking lid too.

Date Reviewed: June 13, 1999

Strengths:    
Strong; kinda makes you look like Jeremy McGrath


Weaknesses:    
HEAVY; kinda bulky


Bottom Line:   
More protection than a DH-specific lid but a little bit on the overkill side. It's a nice lid though, especially for the price.
