    Strengths:    Light, good ventilation, good protection

    Weaknesses:    Price

    Bottom Line:   
    Currently going with third Kaos helmet two regular and one Ultimalite and really like the fit and feel of these helmets. These tolerate quite big hits before cracking and especially like how well they manage to stay on place even with rough riding.

    Strengths:    Lightweight! Enough protection for agressive riding.

    It really surpassed my expectations in every way. I was wearing the normal Kaos and I was happy with it, but wanted to taste this premium AM helmet. Really damn good. Even the straps are made to be light! You can't feel you are wearing it and that is one of the main things that we look for a helmet, apart from protection no?

    As compared to the normal Kaos, except the weight I don't see a real difference so you're paying for less weight, basically.

    I am confident that this helmet may be a little less resistent than the other Kaos but... it is only a non-objective appreciation and have never tested it yet.

    Weaknesses:    Sometimes you can't tell that you are wearing this helmet so there will be situations where you will look a bit ridiculous

    Bottom Line:   
    As I bought it due to a 30% discount at approx USD$140 I would say that Ive found a great value helmet for a bit less than expected for a high-end, sub-200gr. All Mountain helmet.

    Strengths:    Air pervious, very light, looks good and is sit very nice and safety

    Weaknesses:    The breech, it would be better if it will be like in some GIRO Helmets beginning at the sites not in the middle of the helmet.

    Bottom Line:   
    Nice and good helmet but very expensive, you will get a similar one from GRIO for less money and a better breech.
