Not as good at venting than more expensive helmets
I picked this helmet up after price match at universal cycles for $38; at that price there are hardly enough decent helmets, let alone one of this quality with this many features which passes safety requirements. I get asked about where I got this helment and how much I paid for it pretty frequently, as it's not very common amongst a sea of Bell Variants, Giro Xar, and Fox Flux. Those other helmets might be slightly better at venting and cooler looking, but they cost 2x. There is probably no better helmet for less than $50 on the market right now.
