This is the first time ordering from Altrec and boy am I happy with their service. Easy ordering and extemely fast shipping. Got my helmet 2 days after placing the order. Altrec just went to the top of my list. Did I mention that Altrec has great pricing? As to the helmet, I am thrilled with the weight and adjustable fit of this helmet. Looks like it will keep my head protected in many different situations. I ordered the size 2 as recommended by Altrec. Looks like it will fit most average to larger heads.

Comfortable and lightweight helmet, especially for the price. I've owned an Elios before, but somehow misplaced it. After trying on several other helmets, I decided to get another Elios. My husband and I both bought them. I didn't like the position of the adjustable strap behind the head on the Elia -- too high, didn't feel like the helmet was secure without the chin strap. A size 2 will fit most adults. I have a pretty average sized head and the size one could fit, but looked small.

Protect your dome!
On long hot days I still forget this thing is on my head. The adjustable straps and wheel ratchet are easy to use and dial in perfect comfort. If your goal specifically lightweight they do make helmets that don't tip the scales as much. Beware, they will also show signs of abuse much quicker as a trade off. If you are looking for a comfortable, full featured noggin knocker that still has a respectable weight, look no further and buy this one!

I bought the Elios mainly to be used as a climbing helmet. I have been more than happy with it. It is well-made yet extremely light. At the end of long climb you don't even know it's there! Some people may consider this a "hard" helmet compared to a helmet such as the BD Half Dome but the Elios is still very comfortable. The highly adjustable straps make this helmet appropriate for a wide range of head sizes. (I wear a 7 1/4 hat size and wear this helmet towards the bottom of the sizing adjustment.) I have also used the Elios caving several times where it has taken quite a beating. This stands as a testimony to its durability. The headlamp clips are superb and seem to have a far more secure design than the Half Dome. All-in-all great helmet!
