Bell Citi Helmet: Built with all the urban sensibilities of the Metropolis but with a few less frills, the new Citi delivers midrange features at a base-model price. From the ErgoDial fit system for easy sizing adjustments to the durability

Strengths: Lightweight, good fit, love the visor and grown-up look (no space alien look for me)
Weaknesses: Rear view mirror is VERY DANGEROUS!!! It gives you a false sense of space awareness behind you. The first day I used the rear view mirror I got run-over by an old lady I thought was well behind me, dragging my bike 10 feet under her car. BELL, GET SERIOUS ABOUT THIS! This "HELMET" makes me feel more exposed going 30 mph than my Shoei motorcycle helmet at 130 mph+. The outer shell is quite soft, I have struck small branches sticking by the side of the road while going 20 mph, and left an indentation on the outer shell.
