The Schwinn Starlet Wave bike helmet offers a lightweight comfort and protection with an aerodynamic design for women riders. The Starlet Wave is offered at a budget-friendly price-point, yet offers advanced features typically reserved for pricier helmets. First and foremost, the helmet provides the custom fit you need for comfort and safety with the Dial Fit system. This system allows you to tension the helmet for an exact fit by turning a dial at the back of the helmet. This eliminates the need for the extra foam spacer cushions common to inexpensive bike helmets, which also can compress and compromise the fit over time. The Dial Fit system also makes it easy to adjust the under-chin strap which features soft, dual-stitch straps for increased comfort. Designed to keep you cool and air circulating especially in hot weather, the Starlet Wave features 21 contoured air vents with exhaust ports that bring cool air in and force hot air out. Finally, the helmet is equipped with an optional snap on/off visor to keep the sun off your face and out of your eyes.

This helmet has really good reviews on Amazon. I just love green color so i ordered this helmet. The price is good and the shipment is fast. However, I am not happy about it at all. The reasons are as follows. Please note that this is my first helmet. I may not understand how to wear it. I, however, read articles and watch videos about helmet fitting.

1) It too big for me. My head is 54 cm. I think all women helmets are around 50-57 cm. I don't know for this one. I didn't see any sizing information on the helmet. I adjusted all straps, but it doesn't help. Even when I dial the adjust reel to tighten it up until i have a headache, it still does not snug my head well. I may have weird head shape (-_-")

2) The dial adjusting is very convenient. However, the position of the strap is not okay for me. The strap is pretty high on the back of my head and it is INSIDE the helmet. I have long thick hair and love wearing ponytail when I ride. I cannot do so in this helmet. I later on tried other helmets, their straps are slightly below on the back of my head and there is a hole between the helmet and the adjusting strap where my ponytail can come out.

I am not sure if you will understand what I mean. i wish I took pictures of the helmet before i returned it. It will be a lot easier to explain.

3)Side straps do not have lock. It's a bit difficult to adjust. However, once you get them to the right place, they will stay right there without sliding.

4) Minor point; it looks HUGE on me. The light color and the design just make my head 2 times bigger.

One lesson learned: NEVER BUY HELMET WITHOUT TRYING IT ON. It wastes my time and money returning it (return shipping cost is on me).

I went to a bike shop near my place and tried couple helmets there. I came back and found Amazon has the helmets that fit me well( Bell Vela and Giro Skyla). In the end I ordered Bell women Vela from a seller on Amazon at a good price.

This helmet is so much better than the one I used to have, vents well and no sweat collects under it, cools my head on a hot day, also the adjustable head-band makes it very comfortable, unlike the stretch one. A must have for a summer bike ride!

This helmet has a great design. I like the visor on the front because it keeps the sun out of your eyes, and it has plenty of breathability.

We all know bike helmets look ridiculous, and there is not much you can do about that. I read a review on here which complained that it made someone's head look big. I contend that it is a bike helmet. Of course that will happen. I happen to think this is about as fashionable as I could imagine. the colors are really nice and it is VERY light. I appreciate the detachable sun visor, because that does make it look a bit extra-silly. I would use it for serious rides where I would really want the protection, but I am glad it can come off for my regular commuting. It is full of air holes to keep my head as cool as possible and keep the helmet light.

comfortable, I like the adjustable strap with the dial at the back. Fairly comfortable and breathable, thanks to the many slits.
EDIT: May 2015.
I have had this for 4 years now. I have worn it on occasion, and I find it can be hard to wear when you have a ponytail. It seems to work fine as long as you leave your hair free, but you do find that hair gets into your eyes.
The adjustable strap does not work as well as advertised. I have tried adjusting it several ways and I think the issue is that it's neither wide enough nor placed low enough to snugly fit into a position. It seems to do very little since all of the snugness seems to come from the chin strap, which isn't particularly comfortable (rather scratchy).

On the plus side, it's good if you have a smaller head, since a lot of adult helmets can be rather large.

This helmet gets the job done. It's lightweight, comfortable, and the detachable visor is good for keeping the sun out of the eyes.

However, the craftsmanship of the helmet is cheap. The external plastic shell that's glued onto the foam part of the helmet is not made from hard plastic, but from a thin plastic layer (like the kind that cheap Halloween masks are made of). I noticed that right out of the box, some areas of the plastic were not glued firmly onto the foam and I could wedge my fingernail in between. Since the plastic part is just decorative (it's the foam that absorbs the impact of a collision), the flimsiness of it wasn't that big of a deal to me, but I still wish I knew this fact when purchasing. Overall this is a decent helmet for the money, but know what you're getting.

The colors look clean and crisp. The visor offers nice shade and the dial for size adjustment was really easy to use. The helmet fit very comfortably.

Great looking helmet but it doesn't fit my 10 year old daughter much less a woman's head! I couldn't begin to put the helmet on my head, it perched on top like a top hat! Straight back it went (but I had to pay $7 return shipping). Be forewarned, my head measurement is 58 cm./23 inches. Measure before you buy!
