Getting serious on the mountain? Time to get serious about ventilation. Moab’s slickrock trails can be brutally hot midsummer. The perfect partner is Cannondale’s fast and aggressively styled MTB helmet. The Ryker model is designed for all-pur
Weaknesses: none that i've come across, I've been wearing it for a month and riding 4 times a week.
This is the first quality helmet I purchased after I started riding so I dont have much to compare to aside from the in store trials. Before this I was wearing an older, cheaper Bell. I tried on a bunch of different helmets but mainly I compared this to the Bell Influx which was a little cheaper. This helmet just felt better. It seemed slightly thicker and had the plastic coating all through the back where the Bell had just the foam on the back. The ventilation is great. I rode at 5pm during these 100+ degree days in NJ and my head was plenty cool. The interior padding keeps the sweat out of my eyes and the dial adjustment works smoothly and precisely. Compared to some other helmets I tried on it the dial system on this helmet seemed to have much smaller increments which is nice, love the visor too. Its very light and comfortable. My dad also just started riding again and after hearing me rave about this helmet and trying it out he returned a bontrager he had just purchased in the same price range. Best piece of advice I received at REI when looking at the helmet was that July was right around the corner and black helmets attract heat and are harder to see at night. I went with the white and red....love it.
