    Great lid. I ride all mountain, mostly xc. Even bought two of these helmets for my groms, 7 & 10. Both rocking adult XS...perfect fit. Basically kids helmets aren't made to be very functional and my guys are on the trails with me so I'm not going to look the other way while they overheat under an el cheapo helmet. Look for good deals on these helmets before you pull the trigger. I think the xar replaced the xen line so tou can find new old stock especially in the xs fit.

    Pros
    Low profile, good ventilation

    Cons
    None for me

    Take the time to actually learn how adjustable this helmet is. There are several adjustments that will help with the overall fit.

    Pros
    Comfort, Lightweight.

    This is a great all mountain helmet that has tons of protection for the whole head and is very comfortable.

    Pros
    Great fit and plenty of protection. Cool styling and good venting for those hot days. Very durable and comfortable. The adjustability of the Roc Loc 4 is just awesome.

    Cons
    None that I can think of except little visior adjustability.

    Not much I can say that hasn't been already said. This helmet is top notch! Love the design, good air flow and good protection. I like the rear quick locking band for a secure fit, it's easy to adjust with one hand.

    Pros
    Great fit
    Reasonably light
    Nice construction

    Cons
    Visor isn't very adjustable

    If you ride regularly at all, get this helmet and you will love it. I've used one for about 3 years (on my second one, first one saved my life in a bad crash) and I just got my wife to switch and she said she doesn't know how she used anything else.

    Also, watch for sales, the list price is quite steep.

    Pros
    Light

    Comfortable

    Well vented

    Good coverage for the back of the head

    Easy adjustment

    Cons
    Hard to mount helmet cam securely

    Expensive

    This is a very comfortable helmet with great protection. Hardly know it's there. Great air flow on those hot muggy rides.
