I was looking for a higher end mountain bike helmet but couldn't justify to myself spending more than $150. But I knew that I wanted a visor, MIPS and something that I felt good about wearing not only because it looks good but is also lightweight. I got a chance to try on my friend's Tectal and decided I really liked the way it seems to hug my head more than all the road bike helmets I'm used to wearing. I think the full coverage in the back is smart too, because so many mountain bike accidents can involve some unexpected tumbles. I would recommend this helmet to anyone who's serious about riding and wants to feel happier about their helmet.. I'm just simply happy with mine.
- Excellent ventilation.
- Full coverage in the back of the head and MIPS.
- Lightweight and classic styling.
- Slightly larger profile than some other options I considered gives it bulkier feel.
