In 20 years of road and mountain biking I've had 3 Giros, 2 Bell, and 1 Louis Garneau helmet. This is hands down my favorite. It's the lightest and breathes the best.

The atmos also leaves your senses intact... I sometimes feel like my hearing or quickness of response would be influenced when I try on a bulky hemet.
