    Strength:

    Fits nice and protects my melon. Strong, quality construction and materials. Slammed my melon several times with this helmet and the helmet is still in perfect shape. I had a Specialized helmet I crashed with and had the plastic shell buckle and crack. Plentiful padding. Extremely comfortable. Padding also absorbs and holds sweat so it doesn't flow into your eyes and sting while riding. Just a quality helmet and a great price.

    Weakness:

    Sometimes the padding does pull your hair a little when you remove the helmet. Solution: Get a hair cut. Other than that, no weaknesses.

    Great helmet. Great price. Makes melons happy.

    Strength:

    Light, Lots of functional vents, Brow Pads are great. Doesn't have that stupid (and useless) visor. Fairly well rounded which helps with sliding in a crash. Great value for the money. Makes a great road helmet,too. It's become my primary road helmet.

    Weakness:

    I have to keep tightening the chin strap. It loosens up. The helmet "floats" if it isn't tightened often.

    Best Road/Mountain helmet for the money anywhere.
    Ultra comfortable on long rides.
    No competition. Sorry for Bell. A Cheap helmet is their best.

    Strength:

    Good helmet. Light, lots of vents (cool air), looks pretty cool.

    Weakness:

    Sometimes the velcro on the top pads sticks to my hair.

    Good value (although I got mine with team performance discount) and good looks, can't really get a better combo.

    Strength:

    Comfortable, light weight, different thickness pads included, adjustability, breathability.

    Weakness:

    None so far.

    Overall, this is a great helmet in my view. I can ride for several hours and my head doesn't get drenched with sweat since there are all of the vent holes. Once its fitted properly, the fit and the light weight go together to make a very comfortable product. Even for $70, I consider this a great buy.

    It might not be perfect for someone who tries to shed a gram at every turn, or who is looking to spend megabucks, but for the average user, the price is certainly well worth it.
