Submitted by chris horner a Weekend Warrior from Fukuoka city, Japan

Date Reviewed: September 8, 2002

Strengths:    Not too heavy, nice and cool.

Weaknesses:    nothing really

Bottom Line:   
The price might seem a little inflated but I live in Japan. I stacked it today after a small jump and managed do a face plant into a tree. My helmet split apart but my melon was fine. I have a bit of a stiff neck now, but that is better than a stiff hospital bill. Bottom line? I don't have a fractured swede.

Date Reviewed: May 15, 2000

Strengths:    Looks good, fits great, ventilates well, visor is awesome

Weaknesses:    seem to run a little small in sizes,

Bottom Line:   
Too much helmet for beginners or people who don't ride much. If you don't do much crazy stuff, you don't need a helmet this techinical, but great for racing or people who ride more technical trails, or people like me who ride almost every day and need their melon well protected. I got mine on clearance ($40), anyone know what the retail is on this??
