        Overall

        the lack of vent thing annoys me and the goggle strap in back is kind of annoying but i got used to that...everything else is amazing, fit, styling, and performance...but the vent thing is a killer

        Performance

        carbon fiber....umm...carbon fiber....warm i am wearing this in nh and it keeps me warm in anything. The visor works keeps out the sun. i have fallen really hard on it and just blacked out instead of cracking my dome..they are kind of heavy or at least heavier than my old helmet which is saying alot becasue my old helmet was a old giro one

        Design

        looks pretty tacky..but sexy at the same time..It needs better vents because there are 2 black movable vent covers that are like 5 cm long and dont really do shit..not a really good helmet unless it is decently cold out..has lip all of the way around in the back and front which is good i think. I have the sound pads which work really well because i can hook my phone and my ipod up to it which is convienent. also the liner and earpads are removable to be washed which is really nice because i sweat. visor is removable with 2 screws on the side and a Velcro thing in the middle that isn't visible and can be moved up and down.
        and the helmet strap is a pain in the but you have to make sure to do it rigth or else the button will pull out of the plastic stuff and you have to get plyers or something to fix it.
        not as large as other helmets bulk wise a little bit slimmer which i like

        Value

        expensive 200 about i got mine for cheaper...but expensive for something that you are supposed to replace every couple of years...but you get what you pay for excellent performance and a pretty good looking package. there are definetally other helmets that perform just as well such as the g10 or some of the bern helmets but sweet protection is definetally unique

        Fit

        customizable....need i say more. The product comes with fit pads that are basically sticky thin foam pads that stick to the inside of the shell where u need it. I have a long but narrow head so i put them on the sides and closed all gap space on the sides. I would not recommend getting size up to wear with a hat underneath because this helmet is meant to fit dome to helmet. i have the helmet so that it fits perfectly it is just a matter of spending some time doing it. and in the back of the helmet there are these weird gel wing like things that velcro closer or farther apart griping the part of the back of your neck that goes from skull to atlas(the top vertebra) which is nice.

        Durability

        mediocre. i have scratch marks and scuff marks which really doesn't affect performance just cosmetic things which some what annoys me. the visor on the other hand broke my first day having if i just broke of a part of it, again cosmetic but frustrating. but overall the shell is really strong and has define tally protected me so it is doing its job
