I only tested this helmet and decided to go with something else mostly because I felt like this design was not offering as much as I desired for the price. I feel like there's helmets that are just as good out there for less money. The Koroyd impact zones seem to limit ventilation and I was surprised at how much that impacted how I felt about the helmet.

Overall, I would wear this helmet if I could get it on sale. It's going to feel much more premium and last longer than many of the entry level options.

Pros
  • Koroyd impact zones are very durable for side impacts.
  • MIPS for protection from rotational trauma.
  • Classic styling with a compact look.
Cons
  • Slightly heavier than other options and the ventilation wasn't as good as I expected it to be. But it was still great overall.
