Strength:

VERY lightweight, excellent venting, quick fit

Weakness:

just that it seems to channel brow sweat right down between your eyes... if youre looking down for a moment, its goes right into your eyes, and no one likes chin straps (mine rubs my ears right where your sunglass's arms go)

overall a great helmet, but step up to the E2 if youre off road alot (the visor can make that slim difference that determines if youre going to dismount or not)

Weakness:

Having used the helmet for few weeks now I have noticed no weaknesses whatsoever.

A massive roadie-style helmet without a visor. Weighs some 277 grams. ~25 vents. Fitting system can be operated with just one hand. Fits even round-shaped heads.

If you're in search for a reasonably priced road cycling helmet, Monza is definately worth considering. It has all the charasteristics of a modern helmet: In-mold cover, precise fitting system, plenty of vents and thin padding. Notice that there's no option for a visor.

Strength:

Lightweight, great ventilation, large, ample ajustability, great Giro trade-in discount for replacement.

Weakness:

No visor option (not a bother for me), fitting system will loosen on long XC rides.

A helmet better suited for road than MTB. Allows a great fit for those of us w/ large craniums! Mine has a tendency to shake loose from its ajustment setting on rough terrain. My first Monza cracked after a pretty minor endo and Giro offered a fairly generous trade-in discount. Well worth the price.
