Strength:

Price, good ventilation

Weakness:

Strap system. looks and feels "bulky"

I thought this helmet was instantly uncomfortable. There seemed to be no way to adjust the straps so they didn't feel twisted. I'm returning this one and I'll keep shopping.

Strength:

good fit, buckle does not "self-adjust" while you wear it

Weakness:

visor seems to pop off too easily, though that's what it is supposed to do

Great helmet for the price. good ventilation. Yes, one could buy a lighter, thinner helmet, but for much more money. For the average, all around rider, this is the helmet for you.

Strength:

well made, good coverage, comfy.

Weakness:

had a bit of trouble adjusting the strap to fit me right when first purchased (its a unisize), major mushroom head

great value, good ratings with the crash testers, lots of colors to chose from, fits rounder larger heads well. My head fits well into medium sized helmets open up all the way, and large on the lowest setting is usually a bit loose, this helmet when snug still has room for a larger head. Buy it if you want a good value, have a large head, and only use your bike once in a while, if you ride every day get a size specific helmet that fits just right, test try, not just over the internet

Strength:

Very light, easy to adjust, nice coverage in the back compared to most helmets and looks great.

Weakness:

ACU adjust thingy loosens a bit during the course of a ride.

Great light helmet with good ventilation. It runs with only one size so NOT for smaller heads. I use a Halo headband underneath to help with the sweat but fits snuggly with it. With the Halo, not as great. I got it for the nice look and the price.
