Strengths:    easily the most comfortable helmet I have ever worn. Light, with all the pads just in the right place. It doesn't ride too low on your forehead like lots of helmets do. Adjusts easily and stays snug without having to be constricting.

Weaknesses:    The only weakness is I shredded the inside pads, but only after two years of regular and very sweaty use.

Bottom Line:   
My favorite helmet yet

Strengths:    I bought this helmet for races, it gets used twice a month for the last two years.
Exterior has proved durable.
Light and comfortable

Weaknesses:    All of the removable pads fell apart after light use.
The some of the velcro dots holding in the pads fell out too.

Bottom Line:   
OK helmet in most areas, but poor quality of the interior padding really let this one down.

Strengths:    great U-Turn strap adjusters-they really hold and they are user friendly...
helmet weight...simple construction...ventilation may not be that great but it works.
price is good if your looking for a day to day helmet.

Weaknesses:    Visor is too small (side to side)...
rubber ring that holds the excess strap cause me an allergy...

Bottom Line:   
over-all, this would be a great helmet for riders that might be starting to have the addiction of riding mountain bikes. the FORM Fit System gives it a very nice and easy way of adjusting and fitting the helmet-very user friendly but you have to stop first if your on the move to do so (compared to other helmet's fitting system which can be adjusted by a single hand by turning).

Strengths:    Good price, good protection, adequate front and side ventilation.

Weaknesses:    Rear ventilation on the pre-07 models is trash - two small holes the size of quarters just dont cut it.

Bottom Line:   
saved my head after a fall off a ramp onto a concrete block. 8 stitches and a grand scar on my face, but i am still alive and well. the helmet does what its supposed to do - protect your head. at the price, though, dont expect to forget youre wearing it or have the wind flowing through your hair.

good helmet for who just want something functional at a great price and are willing to forgo things like huge vents.
