Why did I Wait?
This was my first helmet purchase and I couldn't have been more pleased. The fit was great and the ability to dial it in with the Boa just makes it perfect. The vents are easy to operate and allow for a wide range of temps. Works great with Smith goggles. It is about as light as wearing a hat with zero visability issues. Highly reccomend spending the money, you won't regret it.

Awesome Helmet!
First off, this helmet looks killer. Low profile, nice lines, great design. The helmet vents are easy to open and close, even with gloves. The brim does not interfere with my goggles like other brim helmets have done for me in the past. The Boa adjustment system dials in the fit perfectly, and works with gloves on as well. The helmet is super warm with the ear attachments in, and cools well with the venting and removing the ear attachments. This helmet is a little on the pricey side, but you get what you pay for. Top of the line design, functionality, and comfort make up for it. I wish my MTB helmet was this nice!!

Functional, stylish helmet
I have a big head. There, I said it. I look kind of silly in most helmets (especially bike helmets), so I've become kind of picky about style. As soon as I tried this one on in the store I had to buy it. Luckily I found it at a good price on Altrec and ordered it right away. The liner is detachable, and it has ample vents, so I may end up using it as a bike helmet in the summer. We'll see. Overall I'm very happy with this.

Best I've found...
Skiing about 100 days a year, I have tried all of the major brands of helmets and this is the best I have found. It is light and comfortable. The new model fits better with a more precise adjustment and the ventilation is great on warmer days. It is easy to add any audio system.

Great Helmet
Purchased this helmet toward the end of the year, so I have not used it a whole lot! But so far it is a great fitting helmet, with great adjust abilities! I love the vents on the top, they dont sit down deep for snow to pile up in. The best part is the audio options! Great helmet.
