Pros: Lightweight, affordable, well ventilated

Cons: Non-MIPS, No reflector

Recommendation: It's a great commuting/light trail helmet. Tons of airflow and affordable. It's a single impact helmet and the coverage is solid. A solid purchase in my opinion. It's my backup helmet.

Pros: Light weight, comfortable, great color selection, affordable.

Recommendation: I like that the helmet is not an annoyance to wear and that I don't seem to notice that I'm even wearing it when I ride. Today, I met a pothole hidden at the bottom of a drop and I flew over the handlebars landing on the back of my shoulder in a roll. I didn't even think about my head until we were back at the trailhead and checked out the helmet. There are a few dings on both sides but I didn't realize I had hit with my head! I am so glad I was wearing the helmet!

Model/Year: Revel

Pros: Price

September 17, 2015
Model/Year: 2015

Pros: Lightweight
Good protection

Recommendation: I have had a few different helmets through my years of riding and this is one of the most comfortable helmets I have owned. It adjusted easily and I don't even notice it while I'm riding. So much so that I gave my old back up helmet to my son. For the price I can not imagine getting a better fitting, more comfortable helmet.

May 6, 2015
Model/Year: 2014

Pros: Light, very breathable, super adjustable

Recommendation: This a very light and nice to wear on easier trails where I am not worried about wrecking. When I end up on a more serious trail that I know will challenge my riding abilities I wear a different helmet.

Pros: Numerous Adjustments

Cons: Chin strap doesn't fit well

Pros: Fits well
Numerous Adjustments
Great cooling

Recommendation: The revel is light and offers great cooling, sometimes I forget I am even wearing it. The Acu-Dial system works as intended and it fits my head well. There is a reflective sticker on the back of the helmet that you would never know was there, but once hit with a light it shines bright.
