Strengths:    Very good fit, lightweight and good price.

Weaknesses:    Noisy at higher speeds.

Bottom Line:   
This helmet has good ventilation, great fit on my head and is very lightweight. Unfortunately, he has one annoyance: at speeds around 20 mph and more is loud and you feel like "car going behind your back".

Bottom Line:   
Looks good, fits my head but ventilation isnt nearly as good as the Ghisallo it relaced(cracked due to abuse after 5 years)Gonna use this as the cool weather helmet and get a better ventilated one for the summer...

Awesome value! Fit for my head is perfect, and straps are easy to adjust. Ventilation is quite decent, and it doesn't look too dorky!

Strengths:    good looking, easy to adjust

Weaknesses:    Vent noise, straps don't like to lay flat.

Bottom Line:   
Vent noise - Two of us in our riding group bought 07 models last year. At around 10 mph the side vents start to whistle and as the speed increases the noise is worse. It's hard to hear people talking while riding beside us and forget an approaching car from behind. Road test this one.

Strengths:    Light, cheap and comfortable. Oh and it does it's job.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Light, Cheap, Comfortable. Simple to adjust and did I mention it is light, cheap and comfortable. Why would anyone pay $200 for a helmet when they could have this one for $60?

I just crashed tested mine. Hit a dog at 25mph and landed on the back of my head and shoulders. Helmet crushed by I rode home with some road rash and bruises. Went to the bike shop for a new helmet (to be purchased by the dog owner) I could have spent $200+ of his money, but opted for another Furio.
