Very light, and adjustable.
Thing to note is that I found the sizing small.
i.e. although my head size is 56.5cm, the Medium (55-59cm) was a little too small on the sides of my skull.
I had to shave a little of the styrofoam from the inside of the helmet with a craft knife.
- good fit if you get the size right
- Adjustable dial at the back.
- removable ear pieces and inner helmet.
- vents at the front and top.
- rear of helmet gives more coverage to the back of the head.
- size runs a bit small.
- included speakers are a little underpowered.

Anyway, ahem, less of that! I'm an Android phone user and I listen to music quite a lot, and especially when riding. And so that's why I bought a helmet with earphones built-in. I liked this one and ordered it. It arrived quickly, and when it did I immediately set about plugging it in and testing the fit and sound quality. Hmm, the fit's comfy but the audio output is super low on my Moto G and Nexus 5! It's a little better with an iPad, but who's going to take a 9" tablet on a slope with them...? (someone will, you know they will! But not me, brother! Not yet...)
The audio is just too low to be satisfactory when using outdoors. Granted, I've not seen anyone say the audio is perfect but surely K2 tests this stuff, right? Even though it really is on the low side, however, the quality isn't that bad though. There's some bass and the treble isn't super crummy, either. It's just not loud enough with the devices I've tested it with.
So, I'm fortunate enough to have a portable headphone amp. Sure, it's another thing to carry and charge, but it's a lot cheaper than buying the Tek Chips thingummy-bobs(?) BT earphone and replacing the built in set from K2. With that amp on, everything is super, smashing, better! And I will hopefully be able to hear my choons when the weather is a tad blustery, old chap!
So, just to reiterate; the helmet seems great. It's nice looking, light, comfy, etc. I'm sure it'll stop any red streaks pouring down the slope behind (or around me) me in a crash (although any brown ones, probably not). But the headphones can be too weak depending on the type of device you're plugging in, and as I've tried it on a few different ones, then just bear it in mind.
Le confort est au rendez-vous.
Systèmes d'attaches occipital et menton simples d'utilisation et efficaces.
Les ventilations frontales et supérieures sont efficaces.
Il couvre bien les oreilles.
Petit bémol, les amateurs de bon son seront déçus par le système d'écouteurs audio, de moindre qualité et présentant dès la première utilisation des signes de fatigue...les bricoleurs devraient palier à ce problème en y greffant un système audio de meilleure qualité!
Le système audio ne fait pas non plus kit mains libre...
K2 devrait se pencher sérieusement sur un système Bluetooth intégré!
