Strengths:    Adjustable. Stylish on shelf.

Weaknesses:    Price is one issue. Also, once on head looks as if I had a growth.

Bottom Line:   
The helmet was returned after trying to get used to it around the house. It felt cumbersome. I would recommend Pro-tec, Triple Eight (little on the heavy side, but has a "sweatsaver" with super soft cushioning, or Bell (feels good, great price point & nice color palette).

Strengths:    good fit
looks cool


Weaknesses:    bad ventilation
colour comes off very easy
adjustment shifts


Bottom Line:   
When I bought it, it fitted my head best, but adjustment straps move easily + adjustment system at the back of the head shifts too
boils your brain at summer and sweat kind of backs up above the headband (I know that's gross, but that's what it does...)
all foam parts on the plastic headband came off the first day,
you see every little scratch on it.
A No for CrossCountry - stay to the ugly helmets...
I'll get me a Casco Viper
