I bought into the hype that this was a really cool, new helmet
on August 3, 2015
Not impressed with design or function. I bought into the hype that this was a really cool, new helmet. As a half helmet with no mask it's functional, but not optimal.
The rear collar area catches the wind horribly and makes it hard to turn my head at speed, a safety issue. Above 65mph the wind pressure inside the helmet is significant and very distracting, again due to the rear padding/collar I believe. The helmet also will pull straight up from all the wind it catches and dig the chin strap into your neck. The chin strap is ridiculously, insanely, unnecessarily long. Seriously, unless you're Herman Munster with a face 3' long you're going to have a ton of slack and there is no built in way to shorten it.
The facemask is not at all comfortable or easy to put on. It rubs the bridge of the nose when riding, painfully so at speed, and you can't put the helmet on with the mask in place so you have to fumble the thing into place after. Also equally annoying to have to take the mask off when removing the helmet.
Overall NOT worth the money. Many better, more economical options out there. I would not recommend. After 3 rides you can find my helmet on craigslist in the near future.
