Bottom Line:   
Great helmet. Light, durable, and the Rollsys system is amazing. I actually prefer this helmet over there more expensive helium and genesis helmets. It's lighter and has more vents and my shades fit it in perfect.

Weaknesses:    None so far

Bottom Line:   
I bought this helmet a few months ago to replace an aging Limar that wasn't performing up to my "standards". I tend to sweat a lot as a rider and the Limar, though boasting 20+ vents, left a lot of hot spots on my head and caused a lot of sweat to run into my eyes or onto my sunglasses. I've noticed that a lot of companies tend to brag about how many vents their helmets may have, but I've found that it's not necessarily the number of vents that cool you down but rather where they're placed and how they're shaped. The O2's ventilation is GREAT! Since I've been wearing it I havent had the problems with sweat running down my forehead onto my glasses or into my eyes.
I considered the Bell Sweep and Giro Atmos helmets too but found the Lazer O2 to be more comfortable and quite a bit cheaper than the other two. I've used Bell, Giro, Limar and Specialized helmets in the past and have found this to be one of the most comfortable helmets I've ever owned. The retention system uses a metal wire rather than plastic gears and parts that I've found to break or strip over time.
I would recommend this helmet over many others that are well over the O2's price range. Why spend $150+ when you can spend ~$100 for something better?

Avocet o2 Air Saddle Substitute

I've finally worn out my old Avocet o2 Air saddle and need to replace it. I prefer the wider "Mens" version. The only problem is that Avocet doesn't make them anymore, and I don't want to pay the going price of $75+ for a beat up, used version on ebay. Has anyone found a good, modern substitution ...

Saddles Similar to the Avocet O2 40R

Can someone recommend a saddle similar to the Avocet O2 40R? I've tried Flite, Arione, Rolls, and an Aspide. The Flite saddle feels like it has too much curvature and gives me saddle sores. The Aspide seemed to have the right support on the sit bones, but the padding was too thin. The Rolls had ... Read More »

people who loved old avocet O2 40r

given how hard it is to find avocet O2's these days, I'm toying with the idea of trying something new. I was just wondering if there were people out there who loved their old avocets (without the depression) and found another saddle they liked as much or betterRead More »
