Strengths: everything,it doesnt get that hot but then again i havent use it in the summer yet.great protection.it feels really nice on your head.it looks cool but that doesnt really matter
Weaknesses: the strap could be better.its especially hard to put on if you have gloves on.the visor also seems kind of week.my brother has one too and he broke his visor off.also the adjustor screws for the visor suck,they strip really easy.
get this helmet.i think it is probably the strongest on the market (well, troy lee's are probably stronger but i wouldnt know)the strap is kind of a pain but when you crash,it's well worth it.if you do really aggresive xc,freeride,downhill, or even slalom, this helmet is for you.

Strengths: Light, good vents, good looks, secure
As far as I was concerned this was the only helmet I could find that fit my head, so it was the obvious choice. A lot of the other helmets had no padding in the forehead area and it felt very abrasive there. I found that the other helmets could tip back and forth as well. This helmet is definately worth the little bit of extra money. The strap is very confortable under the chin. It does the job and looks cool too!

Strengths: Comfortable, lightweight. Good ventilation.
Weaknesses: None from me.
Awsome helmet. I am glad I bought it. I see many reviews of people asking for more vents. The more there are the weaker it gets. I don't find it that hot anyway. Mind you I got it near the end of summer. (So in the dead of summer heat the only thing to do is bike faster.)
Fullface in general: More courage. Ride faster and be more aggressive. Deflect branches to the face.

Strengths: - Nice plush feeling pads - Comfortable material on chin straps - Plenty of vents - Adjustable visor - Sharp looking helmet (red)
Weaknesses: - Haven't found one yet
Nice helmet, fits great, some reviews complain about lack of visor adjustment, this is my first full face so i dont know how big of a deal visor adjustment is but i dont see a cause great enough to complain about.
Been riding 15 years, my style ranges from aggressive XC to hardcore freeriding, and I've never used anything quite like this... Great price (I got it on sale, but still priced well enough these days even if you can't), and once its on your head for a few minutes, you forget its even there. Great clearance for goggles and sunglasses, my only wish is that it were appropriate for warm-weather XC use! Perfect for my freerides, though!

Strengths: -great visibility -light- -cool -impresses chicks -gets you laid -protects your head
Weaknesses: -the stupid visor adjustor does hardly anything -EVERYONE has one
Greatest helmet ive ever tested, and other people think so too cos 4 out of 5 people are wearing them at race meets. Nice to wear, boosts your confidence, looks sh1t-hot. Good for pretty much anyone, buy your grandma one, she'll love it so much she'll wear it to the shops and when she plays bingo.

Strengths: Looks sick pretty light heaps of padding comfortable googles fit easily doesn't come in a large size (for people with big heads)
This is a great helmet for anyone that is serious in downhill or extreme freeride. The helmet looks sick and gives you pretty good view out of the sides. THe helmet is pretty light so you can be doing shuttle runs all day with out getting a sore neck, you also stay pretty cool.

Strengths: -Looks much better in real life, than on-line. -Light for a downill helmet. -Has enough vents (compared to other full-face helmets) -Good sight range. -Good fit for both goggles and shades (I use Oakley and SPY) -Nice strap with a tage --> easier to undo. -Nice decals on Black-&-Silver helmet. -Soft strap pads. -Nice shape, easy to maneuver around the shoulders. -Nice steel grid in the face-cage openings.
Weaknesses: There are very few minor glitches such as: -Low adjustability range for the visor. -Non-removable jaw pads.
One good helmet for a good price, very well designed, it is very comfortable, good looking and strong. You could easily wear sun glasses, glasses, or goggles with it. Good quality product, stuff does not come off......time will tell : )
Get it when you need another affortable best-priced helmet, it's available in a variey of colouring options and does the job of protecting your face best.

Strengths: Nice fit Feels solid Visor adjustement Awesome looks Chin strap covered by a really soft material, very comfy cool (not warm) Looks like it can withstand many crashes LIGHT! No 5lbs MX helmet here
Weaknesses: Not enough range of visor adjustement non-removable iner liner, but just spray some stuff that removes the odours and everything is fine
Best DH helmet out there, awesome in every domain (looks, protection, price), fits nicely if you got a small or medium head (no large, but the medium is big enough for the biggest one), and it's fricking light for a full face.
Anybody know the story behind that dude who rides the foothills in the mesh shirt with all the body armor sewn in it? He haunts my dreams.
He came up on me last night like a bat out of hell, all hunched over, legs churning. Shot past me like spackle from Visicypher's nethers. Glared at me over ... Read More »
I have an older (2003) I think Mad Max helmet that the D rings (moto rings) rusted. No the helmet isn't left outside and I'm always making sure to keep it clean but no matter what I clean the rust still comes. I dunno if it is rust but it does look like rust.
