Strengths:    Very light helmet, with fantastic ventilation. Also the most comfortable helmet I have ever tried on. The best thing about this helmet is that it looks great. Most helmets look like mushrooms and look all bulgy and ungainly. This helmet is very sleek and contours my head quite well without weird and unnecessary bulging. The helmet is also very adjustable.

Weaknesses:    The biggest weakness is the price. I was able to get it on sale, but the usual price of ~180 is way too much for any helmet. Another small weakness is the sizing. The medium is quite large and the large is huge. Luckily I had the ability to try them on before buying, because I was planning on buying the large which would have been too big. The medium fit amazingly though.

Bottom Line:   
This is a great helmet that I highly recommend to anybody looking for a nice high end helmet. My recommendation would be to look for these on sale from places like REI or even Amazon. They come in a huge variety of colors, and with the 3 sizes, they should fit pretty much anybody, though I recommend that you physically try one on before buying, as the sizes are not exactly as expected. But as there are 3 sizes to choose from, unlike 2 for most other helmet makers, one should have no problem finding one that fits perfectly.

Strengths:    Great Ventilation; Price compared to Aeon; Strength; Looks

Weaknesses:    Still pricey, but worth the protection

Bottom Line:   
Been wearing this helmet style for several year. Two keys points for me: (1) I am a sweat hog and this helmet was as good as I feel is out there for ventilation (actually too much in the winter), (2) I had a bad crash three years ago. Got t-boned by another cyclist, went head over on my noggin. Cracked the helmet in two pieces and I walked away with only a headache (and a lot of road rash). Went out next day and ordered two more. Worth every penny for safety!

Strengths:    well made

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
IT SAVED MY LIFE. I was in a bad crash over the weekend. Drafting close to 30 mph, the guy 2 riders ahead lost control and slid on the pavement. The guy behind him was able to avoid him but it was too late when i saw him. I hit his bike, went airborne, and landed on my left side. I remember my head hitting the pavement but didn't realize the impact until my wife showed me the helmet hours later. The left side was completely cracked, with just the outer tape/decals holding it together... The left side of my body is black and blue but that's it. BUY THIS HELMET. I will be getting another one as soon as possible.

Strengths:    light compact sturdy helmet. the adjustment tool in the back rocks. it is the best and it does adjusts it to whatever you feel it is your setting. micro adjustments

Weaknesses:    straps are low quality. this is because they are made light and thin and after long time use they slide at the base. you have to adjust them every now and then.

Bottom Line:   
this is a very good helmet. although pricey i would have to say the over all quality and fit of the helmet is top notch. i would not have expect less from a 180 dollars helmet. if you have the cash and want a really good helmet get this, you wont be dissapointed

Giro Atmos helmet uncomfortable??

I am not a newbie and I have worn a number of helmets. I bought a new Giro Atmos helmet a few months ago and I just can't get the helmet to feel comfortable. I should clarify, it's not the helmet it's the strap. It's actually the strap on the right side of my face. No matter what I do, I can't ... Read More »
