    Recommend.

    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.

    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.

    Pros
    Size/Fit, Air Flow, Comfort, Protection

    Cons
    None

    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.

    Pros
    Styling, coverage, fastening system

    Cons
    Voluminous, strap placement

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

    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

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

    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.

    Very similar in feel to my Xen also from Giro. When using the Xar I find that it is a good combination between good fit, solid construction and good protection. I really liked the amount of coverage that the helmet gives you. Venting is good and keeps air circulation at maximum even when traveling slow.

    Pros
    Light weight for a trail - AM helmet. You fit in the helmet rather than have it a top your head. Rocklock 5 works great

    Cons
    the knob to adjust is a bit on the small side and could use a bit more texture on it to make adjustments easier with gloves on.
