Due to a recent surgery, my doctor said that I have to wear a helmet for a while. I ordered one and have been wearing it for the past month. I love the way it fits and find it comfortable during the 4 hour rides during which I've worn it. I like the style and the fact that it gives my neck some protection too.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

I own one and i love it. I used all of the thick padding in my head and positioned the extra pads throughout the helment where i needed them but other than that i have no complaints. It comes in a nice black bag with a little fake leather cover that goes on your chin strap, don't care much for that but it velcros on

I have no comment about this particular helmet you asked about...but I just want to say that even though you like the look of it, it might not fit your head properly. So when you are looking, make sure you try on a variety of helmets, and not just this brand, to make sure that you get one that fits YOU properly.

Anyone could have all the praise in the world for this helmet, but that doesnt mean it will work on your head.

I love my Tipperary. I hardly notice it's on me. It fits people with more oval shaped heads, and that's me. More round heads do well in Troxels (of the less expensive helmets.)
