I have a Venture, and I've been really happy with it. They've got a new fitting mechanism for this helmet - no dial or anything like that. I've been using it frequently since they hit the market last fall, and have no complaints at all. It's a lot cooler (both in looks and in heat dissipation) than my other schooling helmet, which is that $45 Ovation someone else mentioned above.
I have seen a number of posts on the web noting how Troxel helmets get sticky on the outside over time. I think this is some glitch in the materials that they use in the manufacturing since it happened to both my and my daughter's helmets. I tried using rubbing alcohol to clean off the sticky goo and I think it works. One shouldn't have to deal with this hassle, though. I hope Troxel fixes whatever product they are using on the outside of their helmets === it's a hassle to clean the sticky goo off with alcohol and paper towels.
I like Troxels and have not had any of the problems mentioned above. I'm on my 3rd Troxel helmet. I bought a velvet covered helmet (don't remember the style) first that had the dial fit. I had this helmet for about 8 years before I had a fall bad enough to break it. The next one I bought was a black western style Cheyenne with the GPS III fit. While I liked the helmet itself, it got to be too hot in the summer to wear. I replaced it with the Sierra with the cinch fit. I LOVE this helmet. It is soooo comfortable. I am a Troxel fan.
That being said, everyone has their own favorite. The most important thing is does it fit your head. Try on several brands and different styles if they are available at your local shop. You may find one fits better than another. Go with what ever is the best fit for you.
