    Strengths:    Nicely vented, fits me wonderfully, mine is off white, strap system is great,
    On off quickly, very well engineered


    Weaknesses:    For the day and age, technology then, extended visor would have me back in the designing dept. Otherwise perfect.

    Bottom Line:   
    I was given this helmet very little use, a month ago,( 7-2013 ) I have no idea how old it is, I was going to buy a new one, glad I didn't,, first time wearing a helmet, first time riding for over 50 years, I will in the future purchase a new one with a visor, I am very happy with this one, it still looks like it new,,in closing, great product, J R.

    Strengths:    Price and availability

    Weaknesses:    None really for the price

    Bottom Line:   
    Comfy fit. The half-nelson is kind of hokey since its really just an extension of the padding in the form a roc-lok. Works okay though since the fabric gives a little allowing you to cinch around your crown tighter. Just as safe for your noggin as a helmet costing 5 times as much.

    Strengths:    Protects my head like any other helmet. It's cheap.

    Weaknesses:    Pads are weak

    Bottom Line:   
    Something inside digs into my head when i pull it tight and I spent an hour trying to figure out what it was with no success. It's probably an imperfection in my skull. It's just a damn helmet. If you don't like not having a visor, put a baseball cap over it.

    Strengths:    -cheap
    -protects your head just as well as any other helmet
    -looks good
    -has enough vents (who really needs a gajillion vents anyways)


    Weaknesses:    -cheap pads

    Bottom Line:   
    Good cheap helmet. I see absolutely no reason to pay more for a helmet because they all have to pass the same goddamn test and so they're all just as safe. It protects my head and that's all I want. The front pad came apart so it's a 4.

    Strengths:    Adequate fit
    Inexpensive
    Attractive, as far as helmets go


    Weaknesses:    No neat looking mtb visor

    Bottom Line:   
    If you don't have all that much money to spend, this is a great helmet. Granted, you dont' get any visor (that's an extra $10 on an otherwise identical helmet), but i decided that I could live with that. It's got a good fit, it's lightweight, and it's cheap.
