Bought the Forza 2 Pro after trying other Bell and Giro helmets. Really liked the fit and feel of this helmet over the others. Was the only helmet I could put on and forget I was wearing. Guess the extra money was worth the extra comfort. Luckily, I can't provide a crash report yet.....

Good fit, comfortable even on long days, fairly breezy.

Weakness:

LARGE.

Used for road riding -- good helmet for the money. I trust Bell from experience with their motorcycle helmets - strong and solid, even with the ample venting. However, when compared to helmets like Giro at a similar pricepoint, the Bell is HUGE on my head. The FIT is fine, but the overall size of the helmet is larger than others. I basically look like mushroom-head on the road - but this will likely help if I ever do test this helmet for real, ie. me vs. pavement.
Even on a double century last year, this helmet remained comfy and breezy. In retrospect, I might have chosen Giro, just for the looks...otherwise, happy.

Somewhat reasonable price; pinchless neck-strap

Weakness:

style

It still amazes me that helmets cost so much. They are nothing more than foam wrapped in Coke bottle plastic. Some sell for $160? It is CRAZY! These things are safety equipment, not luxury items! Shame on Gyro, Specialized, and Bell for gouging people for what costs < $10 in materials.

I chose this helmet because it was the cheapest helmet I could find that actually had some good cooling vents and didn't look like crap. My only gripe is that although the fit is snug, it just looks huge on my head. But it works, and that is what counts.

Strength:

Nice speedy looks, Looks great with and without the peak, the peak is strong also, Strong as well!

Weakness:

Cost a little more than i thought, Needs more air holes, Didnt come in much smaller sizes to fit MY head!

A Helmut with great looks! and a nice atitude!, Requires adjusting, as a click that doesnt pinch your neck! the Padding is soft also.

A good XC helmut, A good all round helmut, And it aint so shabby.

4 Flaming Chilis for Value, 3 for comfort, 5 for looks, and 4 over all!
