Strengths:    light weight,cool,very strong, very comfortable,took a direct hit on july 15 at over 25 mph in a very rocky and sandy section of the clemmer trail in tn. helmet did what it was designed to do and i walked away with NO HEAD TRAUMA!!!but did receive bruised ribs and a broken collar bone.i'm 41 and have been riding since my bmx days on the track,35 yrs, experience,

Weaknesses:    visor unclips too easy..

Bottom Line:   
many wrecks over the years, never one riding slower than normal on this trail.other helmets worked ok but would not have allowed me to walk away without even a headache,this helmet allowed me to get up and no headache. even the ct scan was great. when i can ride i will have a new helmet just like this one!!!!!

Strengths:    it did its job...protected my head in a pretty nasty fall

Weaknesses:    none observed

Bottom Line:   
I cannot complain about this helmet. I honestly didn't even own it long enough to give you an in-depth description of the comfort or long term capabilities of this helmet. It was on my second ride wearing it after buying it that I took a nasty spill that broke my clavicle and 2 ribs. I hit my head just as hard, if not harder that the rest of me, which didn't fare as well. The helmet protected my head and allowed me to be fully conscious and aware immediately after the fall.

Whether it be this helmet, or another, please just make sure you're wearing one. You'll never be sorry.
