Strengths:    Did It's Job! Crashed a 42+mph, my lower jaw is all F***ed up and my right leg hurts, but no head aches other than lack of caffein. The styrofoam is cracked in multiple spots with a large dimple in the plastic just to the right of the front mid-line. All of this would have been in my skull if I did not have the helmet on.

Bottom Line:   
Wear your helmet!

Strengths:    Lightweight. Fits snuggly. Low-priced. Not bulky. Straps never come loose.

Weaknesses:    A little hot. Needs more vent holes.

Bottom Line:   
This is a great helmet for the price. Fits better than some of the more expensive helmets that ate out there. It just needs some more vent hole. It gets really hot on summer rides. Also, you might want to avoid getting darker colors like black. It absorbs the heat that beats down on it during sunny days.
