Great helmet. Does the job. It comes with 3 levels of padding so you can get it fit just right for you head. Nice color options too. For $9 at Jenson, you'd be nuts not to stock up.

Strength:

Cheap, looks good, solid protection, awsome fit.

Weakness:

Foam will separate from the hard-shell after a while, but after its on your head, it doesn't move. Just glue it back in and your all good.

Good helmet at a great price. Recommended for all riders on a budget. Unless your a hardcore XC rider, this helmet offers good ventilation, and isn't to hot for trail rides, while still remaining burly enouph for freeride. Buy one.

Strength:

Fits well as it comes with a number of different sized pads to put in it, wide edges to protect skull! looks cool

Weakness:

Not much really, except becomes very sweaty when using it after a bit. Straps loosen off gradually and you have to tighten them

Great fitting helmet, looks good, although gets a bit sweaty, recommended, try one on before buying it though i tried many other helms and this one fitted me the best

Strength:

ventilation, is great for a skate style type helmet. I took a big hit on the head. I got rocked hard. However, the helmet had little more than a scuff.

Weakness:

padding

Price ok. Ventilation is good & there is a good color selection. Also easy to find. Even Sports Authority carries them.

Price, Style

Weakness:

Ventilation, Weight

Not a bad helmet, especially considering the price. I like to use in in the winter because it insulates well. Not so good in the summer, just too hot. I like that I can toss this helmet around and not worry about it getting ding'd up.

Strength:

beefy
not too heavy
lots of colors to pick from
cool looking vents

Weakness:

strap system could be more dial-inable
loud about the ear area when I'm going fast
ok maybe a little heavy

I just happen to think the BMX/skate style helmets look way cooler than roadie/xc helmets and whatever gets you to rock one is cool. These things are pretty cheap as well...hell, you could buy three or four for the price of a pneumo...one to match each of yer bikes.
