Strengths:    Price Visibility Protection - Flaming Yellow and MIPs - Roc Lok 5 for 1 hand adjustment and good strap placement

Weaknesses:    Bulky/Hot - but that is bad news/good news

Bottom Line:   
This is a wonderful Winter helmet. If the temps are below 60F you'll love it, particularly for the fast downhill runs. If on the other hand you are doing a long uphill slog and it is warm out, you'll baste in your sweat like a turkey. I do a weekly ride that starts out with 6 miles downhill.

Strengths:    fit, venting, PRICE, decently lightweight

Weaknesses:    a bit bulky

Bottom Line:   
I used this helmet as my commuter, but it makes a great budget racing helmet. Not too bulky and decently lightweight - the best you will find in this price range for sure. Sunglasses fit upside down in the front vents too. sturdy straps and good padding, overall a great value.
