Very nice helmet, I ordered one in white but ended up returning one for matte black. Looks great, even with my gloss black goggles. It fits great, though a tad smaller than L in other brands, but Giro doesn't make an XL in this helmet that I know of, so L will work. The chin strap is easily adjustable and the helmet is earbud compatible. Only thing which may be problematic is the venting, or lack thereof. I guess I can always slap some electrical tape over the vents if it gets to be too much on the cold days, but usually my head sweats anyhow so the vents should be perfect.

    I haven't used this helmet yet. I'm just writing this review because evo has sent me 5 emails asking me to, and now I could win $1000. It looks nice though and I'm sure it's great! I'll let you know next season.

      I have used this helmet a couple times since buying it and I am completely convinced it kept me from having a serious concussion doing some park riding. I'm definitely happy with how durable it is. Definitely a good decision to buy this.

                        Ehhhh... they do exactly what they're supposed to do, however they are very large and doesn't exactly fit to well on your head so you end up looking like a gaper. Not too big of a deal when you're wearing pretty loose clothing, but its still a con.

                          Very nice helmet, I ordered one in white but ended up returning one for matte black. Looks great, even with my gloss black goggles. It fits great, though a tad smaller than L in other brands, but Giro doesn't make an XL in this helmet that I know of, so L will work. The chin strap is easily adjustable and the helmet is earbud compatible. Only thing which may be problematic is the venting, or lack thereof. I guess I can always slap some electrical tape over the vents if it gets to be too much on the cold days, but usually my head sweats anyhow so the vents should be perfect.
