Strength:

Everything

Weakness:

Visor to squirly

This helmet is the best that i have ever had. It fits extremely well I have had no problems ith it except that the visor comes off in wrecks easily, which can be a good thing (protecting the visor from damage) Although it can be annoying. It also keeps my headvery cool despite the sweltering weather.

Strength:

The colors are cool, because depending on the way that you look at it, the color changes from yellow to dark maroon. Fits soooo good and lightweight.

Weakness:

Might be a little too bold for some people.

A great helmet if you want to look out of the ordinary.

Strength:

Protects your head in a crash

Weakness:

Retention system Falls apart, Wacky buckle, Sweatband overwhelmed by Florida Heat and Humidity

A Nice Helmet that tries too hard to be different. The Retnetion system snaps together, but comes apart too easily, even when I had it on. The sweatband would douse my glasses with sweat after 5 miles, and I didn't want to try and use a sweatband , giving the problems with the retention system. Also, The straps use a unique buckle and "Junctions"(the things under your ear that connect the front and back straps) that require a screwdriver to adujst! Finally, it's made out of softer foam than other helmets, so it looks fairly bad (scratches) after only a short time

Mike O   Cross Country Rider [Jan 14, 2000]
Strength:

Light weight = 8.9 oz
Good looks
Good ventilation
Visor is mounted with sturdy pegs that fit into helmet with out using velcro. (isn't there already too much velcro in the world? it's getting to be like duct tape...)
Strap clip works well

Weakness:

my niterider headtrip bike light doesn't quite attach right...of course, this is more niterider's problem than GT's.

I have to agreed with Dave below, more people should be using this helmet. At 8.9 oz., this is one of the lightest helmets out there, and it's got a decent look to it. Unfortunately, you probably won't find this helmet sitting on a shelf at the bike shop nor find it in a bike mail order catalog. I had to order mine through the local bike shop (LBS) which I don't like to do for something that I'm going to wear. But I took the chance and it paid off. Now if GT could just make their I-drives light like this helmet...

Larry Litwin   Weekend Warrior [Jun 18, 1999]
Strength:

I had trouble finding a helmet that was comfortable. This one fit like a glove. Quality seems about the same as the equivalent priced helmets in other brands. Vents keep pretty much the same size outside to inside.

Weakness:

You would think, considering the price, that they could throw in a second set of pads. Also, their customer service staff were very arrogant when I called.

Good, but nothing special. Unless you have big trouble getting a comfortable fit I'd go with Bell, Giro, or Specialized.

Saucy   Cross Country Rider [May 18, 2001]
Strength:

Light, good vents, good looks

Weakness:

The visor mount is pretty weak

This is probably the favorite out of all the helmets I have ever owned. It's not as pretty as my E2, and it's got so much use now that it's kinda smelly and the pads are pretty beat. It's light and well vented. It fits better than any other helmet I have ever put on my head. The only thing I never liked about it is the way they put the visor on. It looks like an afterthought. But that's not enough to take any chilies away. Nice job GT... I don't like your bikes much but this helmet rocks.

John   Cross-Country Rider [May 27, 1999]
Strength:

light, comfortable, looks great

Weakness:

none

I am not a fan of GT's bikes, but this helmet has it all. By far the best helmet available. It really surprises me that more people don't use this helmet, maybe it's because it says GT on it. 5 big happy stars.

Beau Johnson   Cross Country Rider [Jul 21, 2003]
Strength:

Everything

Weakness:

Visor comes off too easily

I was riding and my brother clipped my front wheel and I wiped out, my head slamming into the pavement at 20 m.p.h. It felt like I was hit very hard in the face by a soft pillow. I am convinced that it saved my life. I was in love with how cool it looked and how cool my head was in 100 Degree weather. My only complaint is that I didnt buy two of them. I now have a GT Cosmos and it is just as good as the Pegasus, but not as cool looking.
