        Overall

        Good looking, comfy, and supposedly strong upon impact- this is definately a good purchse.

        Performance

        Fine, but I hope I don't need it in a crash.  Also the 13 vents make it cool for your dome and mesh keeps flakes on the outside.

        Design

        Bright orange goes with my scott team issue poles, I now realize I am too color-coordinated.  The back has a print of a man laying dynamite on one side and a white bird of peace landing on the plunger on the other side.  Cool low-key graphic with an added moral.  My giro helmet started many chairlift conversations.

        Value

        60$ is worth the hassle of a concussion.

        Fit

        Mine fits very well, wide enough that it doesn't feel like a full-face.  It isn't as dangerous to order online and risk getting the wrong size because the helmet comes with 2 sets of different foam linings.

        Durability

        A few scratches, but nothing major.  Even after a couple big bails, I couldn't find any damage, so it held up well.
