Model/Year: 2015

Pros: Looks - I got the camo version Protection - already smacked my head against a few things! Well ventilated Comfortable

Cons: One of the clips that attaches the webbing to the helmet constantly pops out. Tried silicone caulk but that worked for just a day. Gonna super glue it in.

Recommendation: Recommend.

Model/Year: 2014

Pros: Size/Fit, Air Flow, Comfort, Protection

Cons: None

Recommendation: Got to "Test" this helmet out yesterday by wiping out off a feature and bouncing my head off a tree. Came out with scraps all over my arm and shoulder but my head came out untouched. Well worth the $$ for saving a trip to the Dr. on my second ride. I'm sure being a nub that I will but this thing though its paces.

Model/Year: 2013

Pros: Styling, coverage, fastening system

Cons: Voluminous, strap placement

Recommendation: Nice helmet. Cinches down tight with a twist of the dial. But there's more volume to it and the straps seem off a little compared to the many other Giro helmets I've had.
I find it's more comfortable with a headliner.

Model/Year: 2012

Pros: Lightweight, super cool at all speeds, most comfortable helmet I've worn.

Cons: Only thing that annoys me is the drip of sweat that clings to the front on the helmet, swaying back and forth while I ride.... :-P

Recommendation: Worth every penny, don't think about it, just get it.

Pros: Lightweight, easy to adjust, lots of vents, and the coverage is great.

Cons: Like the previous review the adjustment knob is a little small and could use some texturing to ease use while gloved.

Recommendation: Great helmet, cool even while going slow and still offers great protection. The Rocklock 5 system is great and easy to use.
